Here are 5 things you should avoid putting in your washing machine

Here are the 5 things that you should never put in your washing machine:

Use a lint roller to get rid of pet hair before putting them in the machine.

1) Foam pillow

NA

The movement of a washing machine can cause memory foam to weaken or even break into pieces, so it’s best to avoid machine-washing solid foam pillows.

2) Clothes covered in pet hair

NA

Wet pet hair can clump and stick to clothing, to the sides of the washing machine drum, or even clog the machine’s drain pipes, making it less efficient over time.

3) Bras

NA

Bra hooks can snag other clothing or get caught in your machine’s cylinder.

4) Clothes with flammable stains

NA

The high heat of the dryer can cause the clothing to combust. So, prefer washing these clothes manually.

5) Clothes with laces and embroideries

Clothing with embroidery shouldn’t be washed in the machine because the movement can ruin the detailing. Items made with lace can get ripped or tear.
