WHAT’S IN A LOAD?
On laundry day, after you’ve gathered and sorted, you look at the varying piles of clothes: some small, some large, and others in between. But when you pick up a pile and put it in the washer, do you really know what size you should set the controls to?
Though load sizes will vary a little depending on the washer’s capacity, there are some general guidelines you can follow. Even though many of today’s HE machines can often sense the load and automatically fill the water to the proper level, you’ll still need to know how much detergent to add. Check the instructions on the detergent bottle before using so you apply the proper amount.
