TIPS FOR KEEPING CLOTHES FRESH AND FRAGRANT WHEN WASHING BY HAND AND MACHINE
What are the differences between washing clothes by hand and by machine? How can you wash your clothes to keep them clean and fragrant for longer? Let Mori answer these questions and explore laundry tips through the article below!
To keep clothes fresh for a long time, sometimes just a few small tips will help keep your family’s clothes clean and fragrant. Let Mori share with you 3 laundry tips for hand washing, machine washing, and fabric softener.
- How to Keep Clothes Fragrant for Long by Machine
When using a washing machine, most manufacturers integrate suitable washing programs for each type of fabric that needs washing. Therefore, all you need to do is use an appropriate amount of fabric softener corresponding to the washing cycle, and your clothes will always have a pleasant fragrance. However, even with this, your clothes may not retain the scent for long. Mori will give you a very useful tip:
Firstly, use the normal cycle that is suitable for the fabric.
When adding the detergent, only add detergent or washing powder to the detergent compartment.
When the machine has finished washing, restart it and select the wash – spin dry program.
Add fabric softener to the fabric softener compartment. This is an important step; the fabric softener will dissolve. When the machine starts, the fragrance particles will distribute more evenly, and your clothes will stay fragrant much longer.
Finally, hang the clothes in a well-ventilated place for faster drying.
Note: Some modern washing machines have a soaking function to help the fabric softener penetrate deeper and be more fragrant. You can choose this function to make your clothes smell better for a longer time. When using this function, the washing time may be extended by at least 30 minutes.
- How to Keep Clothes Fragrant for Long by Hand
When washing by hand, you won’t have as many complicated steps as with a machine. Use an appropriate amount of fabric softener according to the manufacturer’s instructions for the number of clothes.
Many housewives often think that the more fabric softener they use, the better and longer-lasting the fragrance will be. However, this is a completely wrong notion.
To keep your clothes fragrant for a long time, follow these steps:
Wash as usual and add fabric softener to the first soap compartment.
Spread the clothes in a basin that has been mixed with fabric softener instead of rolling them up as usual. This is very important because it helps the fabric softener penetrate deeper into each thread.
Wring dry and proceed to hang them as usual.
Note: You should wash and hang clothes early in the morning because if you only hang them in a well-ventilated place, the trapped water in the clothes will not evaporate quickly, which can easily cause odor even after using fabric softener. Gentle sunlight also helps effectively eliminate bacteria and allows the fragrance from the beads to spread better.
- Choose Highly Concentrated Fabric Softener for Long-lasting Fragrance
When it comes to long-lasting fragrance on clothes, you can’t help but mention Mori’s highly concentrated fabric softener product, containing millions of fragrance beads, suitable for both the rotating cycle of the washing machine and traditional hand washing.

- Some Notes When Using Detergent and Fabric Softener
Water Temperature when Using Detergent and Fabric Softener:
Do not use hot water to soak fabric softener, as higher temperatures will cause the fragrance beads to evaporate. If desired, you should only wash clothes in hot water with detergent for disinfection. Then soak the clothes in cold water with fabric softener.
Use the Right Dosage:
For 1 cap of fabric softener, it will be suitable for 10 – 20 pants/clothes. However, when washing bedding, blankets, and pillows, you should use 2 caps of fabric softener for the fragrance to last longer. Nevertheless, you should also carefully refer to the dosage of fabric softener in the instructions on the product packaging to achieve a long-lasting scent without causing any damage to the fabric.
These are some tips to help you wash clothes by hand and by machine deeply and effectively, saving costs and effort. We hope this information will be useful for you in keeping the daily clothes of all family members fresh and fragrant.
