You're not sorting your laundry by dirtiness.没有给脏衣服按程度分类
You probably have heard that sorting your laundry into darks and lights is a good idea, but you should also be separating your clothing by soil level.
According to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, washing heavily soiled items separately from lightly soiled ones will keep relatively clean clothes from picking up extra grime from the wash water. This transfer of soil can lead whites to take on a grey or yellow tinge and colored items may become dingy.
You're washing your t-shirts and jeans in hot water.用热水洗T恤和牛仔裤
You might know that clothing can shrink in the dryer, but it's also very possible for items to shrink in the washing machine as well. According to Laundry Care, natural fibers like cotton and wool are especially prone to shrinkage when exposed to any sort of heat, including warm water, steam, and even direct sunlight. Cotton fabric is actually stretched during manufacturing and exposure to heat causes the garment to return to its natural size.
This means that throwing your cotton t-shirts and jeans (yes, denim is actually made of cotton) in the washing machine on a hot cycle will likely lead to some level of shrinking unless the garment is advertised as being "pre-shrunk" or "pre-washed." To combat this effect, you should always wash your cotton items in cool or cold water and allow them to air dry.这意味着将你的棉T恤和牛仔裤（是的，牛仔布的原料也是棉）放到洗衣机里用热水洗会导致一定程度的缩水，除非衣服上标有“预缩水处理”或“预洗”。为了防止缩水，你应该坚持用凉水或冷水洗棉质衣服，然后自然风干。
You don't zip clothing up before washing it.洗衣服前没有拉上拉链
Zippers can actually wreak havoc in your washing machine. Not only can the zipper itself break or damage the drum of your machine, but the sharp metal teeth of the zipper can snag on fabric or lace and ruin your delicate items. To avoid this, be sure to zip up any clothing item with a zipper before tossing it in the washing machine. Better yet, opt for hand-washing these items.
