Can You Wash just one item in the washing machine?
Is it better to wash clothes in the washing machine or sink?
- If it's just an occasional thing, maybe wash it by hand in the sink instead. It depends. I try to avoid doing that, because it’s inefficient and because most machines are designed to perform better with larger loads. So again, it depends—on your washing machine.
What is the best way to clean things in the washer?
- The key to cleaning these 14 things successfully in your washer is to use the gentle cycle, correct water temperature, put small items in a mesh laundry bag and skip the heat of the clothes dryer. You'll also have the best success with larger items if you use a high-efficiency washer without a center agitator.
Can I use a prewash setting on my washing machine?
- Many machines have a prewash setting that can be used as well. Many of our newer washing machines are designed to be energy and water-efficient. Extra soap will not rinse away properly with the amount of water released.
