How To Use A Fabric Conditioner For Bucket Wash

The wash care labels on the clothes specify the ideal method for washing them. But occasional hand wash instead of machine wash can also help in increasing the longevity of your clothes

In case of delicate clothes, greater care needs to be taken. Hand washing for delicate garments followed by the use of a fabric softener is often a safer alternative to using the same post a machine wash. This ensures minimum friction on the cloth fibres during washing, and therefore, lesser wear and tear.

In this guide we’ll show you how to wash clothes by hand and keep your delicate clothes soft with the help of Comfort fabric softener.

How to hand wash clothes:

Step 1:

Check the care label of the garment you’re about to hand wash before you start.

Step 2:

Fill a basin, sink or tub with water (recommended temperature on label). If you’re washing more than one item of clothing, it’s best to use the lowest temperature possible, or add hot water as you go. Likewise, make sure to wash clothes by colour group (e.g. white clothes, dark clothes) to avoid dye transfer.

Step 3:

Pour in the instructed amount of your chosen hand wash detergent. If you’re using a liquid or powder detergent, make sure it has thoroughly dissolved in the water.

Step 4:

Add clothes in the water, one by one. Gently rub the fabrics against themselves and stir until they are clean. Clothes with stains need to be soaked for up to half an hour.

Step 5:

Drain out the soapy water and re-fill your basin, sink or tub with fresh water. Swish your clothes around in the water to lift soap away and thoroughly rinse clothes.

Step 6:

Drain out the water and refill again. Pour the right amount of Comfort fabric conditioner (1/2 a cap for up to 10 clothes) into the tub.

Step 7:

Add your fabrics after the detergent wash into the tub and soak for about 5-10 minutes.

Step 8:

Remove the clothes & dry. Do not rinse after soaking clothes in Comfort fabric conditioner.

Hand-washing your favourite clothes is no more challenging. With Comfort Fabric Conditioner, you’ll be able to keep your delicate clothes looking fresh & fragrant in the safest and easiest way possible.
