Teen Living Objective 11.03

Suggest specific techniques for care of clothing

How do you know how to launder your clothes?

  • By reading the care label inside the garment

How do you whiten white clothes?

  • With Bleach, but be careful!

Stain Removal

  • The most successful launderers have

    learned the secret of the pre-treat.

    There’s no need to be intimidated by this step…

  • The sooner you get to the stain, the more

    likely you are to get rid of it.

  • When blotting out stains, use a white cloth

    to prevent dye from transferring to the item

    you’re treating, and blot from the edges of

    the stain, to keep the stain from spreading.

  • The pre-treat is just the first step. Always

    follow it by laundering immediately as directed

    on the care label, in the warmest water
