Here’s how to do your laundry more efficiently. Before you load your laundry, think about the types of clothes you are washing so that when it comes to drying, the garments are not damaged and still keep their shape. Make sure there are no metal objects. Button up pillowcases, close zip fasteners and hooks. Then place the laundry in the drum one at a time so that your clothes don’t get tangled.

Use the Electrolux Load SensorTM technology to avoid overloading. It automatically adjusts the water, energy consumption, and washing time according to your load, so your clothes are never over washed.
Wash bras, pantyhose and other delicates in the Electrolux laundry bag. Never wash whites and coloureds together. New coloured items that new may run in the first wash; wash these separately the first time.
The Electrolux Vapour Care makes sure that your shirts are handled with the utmost care. It softens your fabric while reducing allergens by up to 99.9%. The vapour action dewrinkles your clothes by relaxing the fibres. It does this with the vapour generated by heating your shirts with a small quantity of water. In addition, the controlled optimal temperature inside the washer allows the fabric to keep its volume.
During the wash, your shirts are exposed to powerful temperatures up to 70 Celsius. As a result, you get dewrinkled clothes that require far less ironing. The Vapour Refresh cycle also helps to refresh and de-wrinkle your clothes using natural steam.

Stubborn stains are frustrating to deal with because a simple wash isn’t enough. They may need to be treated prior to washing.
If you’re dealing with fresh blood stains, make sure to treat them with cold water. For dried stains, it’s a good idea to soak the fabric overnight in water using a special detergent. Treat dried grease stains by moistening them with turpentine and then dabbing with a cotton cloth. For ink stains, moisten the fabric with acetone and then use acetic acid.
In case you’ve got lipstick on your shirt collar, treat the stain with acetone, then apply methylated spirits. The best thing for red wine stains is to soak them in water and detergent, then rinse and treat with acetic or citric acid, and rinse again.
The patented UltraMix™ technology from Electrolux gives you exceptional washing results at low temperatures. It pre-mixes the detergent and evenly distributes the softener to tackle the entire stained area. Its deep cleaning function helps you get rid of the stains, keeping your clothes vibrant for longer.
