First you should activate the "thorough rinsing" option on your machine (if it has one). Modern washing machines seem to be manufactured mostly for the ads and less for the actual washing they're supposed to do. "Saving water" sounds good in ads, but if a washing machine rinses your clothes in too little water, there'll be residue of ...

You're already doing the right thing to minimise dye colour bleeding.Here are some reasons you may be having a problem. Dye Bleeding You Cannot Control If the color loss happens due to the following reasons, it is beyond your control:(especially if only one of the embroidery yarns colour is affected.) Incorrect dyeing techniques or poor quality dye were ...

I would consider: Freezing the detergent into blocks that are placed into the drawer. it may be that it remains solid enough to not flow throughout the prewash phase but is then melted by the water Permanently modify the soap drawer- shape a stainless steel blanking plate then heat it and push it into the plastic so the drawer becomes dammed. The dam ...

Logically, solving this problem involves identifying the cause. Identifying what is — and what is not — in common is the first step. Repeated loads of laundry done with as few differences as possible will help you isolate a probable cause — which you can remove. The "problem" is that you'll get the occasional "evidence" of an ongoing ...

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that perhaps the stains are due to bleach. Your shirt may be dyed with a combination of colours, and a small amount of bleach may affect the red dye more than the blue, which would explain why the stains look like they were made with something blue. Bleach is a powerful and highly corrosive chemical, even in ...

the most likely answer is your dryer air duct outlet is closed or blocked off. I had this problem in a house I once lived in and got so frustrated that I searched for and found the dryer duct vent on the outside of the house. It had been blocked closed when the house was painted years earlier and never opened back up again. Some dryer ducts are supposed to ...

It is possible that water in your locality is hard and hard water can cause problems to your clothes. So check whether the water is hard and if it is so, try using suitable detergents or water softeners. Also dust your rooms and closets often, as dust may get settled from here on the clothes. Consider using Garment bags to protect them from dust.

The best "hack" I imagine is to bring a water connection and drainage indoors (where you already have electricity). It should be easier and safer, from all points of view. Installing the machine outdoors has more than the problems you mentioned (rain and heat). Dust, moist in the air (rain not needed), fog. The greatest danger actually occurs in ...

Place the machine on a pallet and cover it with a barbecue large cover or a large mower cover. Keep it off the ground and that will let you get more years and use out of it. Good luck.

Shopping bags usually have ventilation holes so they are not very waterproof. Plastic sheeting might do, but will soon develop splits and tears. If you can't find a servicable tarpaulin (perhaps one that is no longer useful on a truck), I suggest a way to move the washing machine. My hack to move a washing machine or a cooker easily and simply, is to use a ...

I suggest a Hack for easier moving as an alternate to a light-weight washing machine cover. Consider moving your heavy washing machine a lot more easily [if a little slower] from storage to the washing space using rollers rather than the bad tyres. You need two planks for either side of a "skid" to make a flat bottom surface.and You need four or five ...
