What temperature should I use when washing whites? Hot or cold?
When washing your favourite white clothes, nothing’s more important than that they come out of the machine bright and clean. Concerning stain removal, much of the end result depends on whether you wash your whites in hot or cold water. For the most part, in case of heavily soiled clothes, towels and bedding, whites should be washed in warm or hot water, but there are some exceptions: Sheer or delicate fabrics, such as lingerie and swimwear, require lower temperatures, while stains like blood, wine, and coffee might set if washed in warm or hot water, so you’re safer using a cold wash, coupled with Ariel Gel, our powerful cold water detergent! Another advantage of a cold water wash is your clothes will get a longer lifespan, plus you’ll have a smaller utility bill, since it requires less energy per cycle.
