5 Reasons Your Laundry Looks Dirty After a Wash

May 13, 2020


Do you know what’s more frustrating than waking up early on a Sunday morning? Taking this Sunday out to wash a big, heavy load of laundry, only to realize that your clothes are still dirty.

And there you stand to wonder, what did I do to deserve this?

Well, to find out, we’ll have to go back in time. (Or in memory)

And in this post, we are going to do that. Here are five top reasons why your laundry is coming out dirty even after the wash.

1. You Poured Less Detergent

Detergent is one of the most essential substances that are required for cleaning clothes.

For once, you can still survive without a washing machine. But, if you don’t have the detergent, you can’t do much cleaning until you get it.

And if you mistakenly pour less detergent for washing your clothes, your laundry will still be dirty after you have finished washing.

This is why it’s important to be mindful of the amount of detergent that you are pouring into the machine.

For a better idea, you should refer to the detergent’s usage guidelines described by the respective detergent’s manufacturer.

2. You Left The Laundry Wet for Too Long

One common mistake that can make your clothes dirty after a wash and also downgrade their quality is leaving the wet laundry inside the machine vessel for too long.

Yes, this happens with the best of us, but we need to be more cautious about this.

So, whenever you start the washing machine for cleaning your clothes, keep your ears alert towards the alarm.

Carelessly leaving your clothes inside any of the machine vessels will also affect your washing machine’s overall efficiency and health.

Keep this in mind and ensure that you don’t make such mistakes.

3. You Haven’t Cleaned Your Machine In a Long Time

As it’s important to be cautious and aware while washing your clothes, it’s also crucial to take care of your washing machine’s regular maintenance.

Over a series of heavy washing sessions, your machine’s efficiency may start to deteriorate.

As a result, its lifespan can dropdown. Also, such a washing machine will not be able to give you a clean load after every wash.

So, take care of this point. At least twice a month, take time out to clean up your washing machine. If you don’t know much about this, here’s a simple guide on how to clean your washing machine.

4. You Washed Your Clothes In Dirty (Residual) Water

Here’s another mistake that can leave your laundry dirty.

If you ever happen to wash your clothes in even slightly dirty water, the results can be disappointing.

And this isn’t a rare affair.

While washing our laundry, we often have to change the water depending on the fabric that we are washing. Now, if we fail to drain the entire old and dirty batch of water before pouring in the fresh one, our clothes may not come out clean.

So, take notes. Before you pour clean water in, make sure there is no residue left inside the vessel.

5. You Overloaded the Machine

If you have a heavy load to wash, always remember to split it into several smaller loads.

Overloading the machine’s vessel will not give enough space for your clothes to freely spin and be cleaned up.

Also, this is bad for the machine's health.

So, never overload.

Final words

Realizing that your clothes are still dirty after a good wash is always disappointing. However, we must learn from our mistakes.
