Beko Philippines, Europe’s leading brand of washers that are gentle on clothes, energy efficient, and has large capacities in a compact form, shared some simple tips to keep clothes clean, fresh-smelling and safe to wear especially this rainy season.
The challenge during the drizzling weather is drying the laundry. Since drying clothes outdoors is out of the question, bringing them indoors after washing becomes commonplace. But hanging freshly washed clothes indoors can leave them with a distinct and unpleasant odor and can cause a build-up of bacteria making them unsafe, especially for infants.
Using Fabric Conditioner
Soak clothes in fabric conditioner during the rinse cycle. Fabric softeners not only leave clothes soft, but it also leaves them smelling fresh even if hung out to dry indoors preventing that all-too-familiar and unpleasant “kulob” odor. There are also fabric conditioners that have anti-microbial properties that leave clothes not only fragrant but bacteria-free.
Hang Clothes Properly
Where you hang them in the house also helps. Look for an area where there is good ventilation so the clothes get as much air as possible. Never hang them in cramped and enclosed spaces. Heavy pieces, such as jeans, towels, and carpets should be placed near the windows where air flows through. It is also worthwhile to ensure that the room where they hang in get good ventilation overall.
Give them a good wringing
Before you hang them, make sure that you’ve given them a thorough wringing. Clothes that are still quite wet not only dry longer, but they also smell bad even when already dry.
Choose the right dryers
Lastly, invest in the right dryer. Choose a dryer that can eliminate bacteria that cause can be harmful to your family. What’s more, they also maintain the fresh smell of the fabric conditioners you use, so your clothes smell fragrant.
Released last September 2018, Beko’s new heat pump automatic dryer DH10444RX0 features the ability of making 10kg large capacity drying possible with the latest technological innovation to help mommies keep clothes fresh and the family safe from harmful pathogens while saving on energy.
The DH10444RX0 has the AquaWave® technology that generates a wave-like motion using a set of paddles to increase drying performance as it moves garments around while the Quiet mode helps reduce noise concerns.
It also optimizes the drying cycle with an OptiSense® technology, a technological innovation that lets users choose between three smart sensors for drying clothes, with one sensor automatically stopping the machine when the right level of dryness has been achieved. It also comes with a Smart Humidity Sensor and a Touch + LED display.
The automatic dryer also keeps clothes crease-free with its Auto Anti-Creasing feature that spins clothes gently with a gentle drum action while a Child Lock feature is strategically placed to prevent young ones from changing the settings on the dryer.
