How To Hand Wash Clothing

posted in Various
  • If you don't have a washing machine handy, hand washing is a great option. It's also a good skill to have for garments that specify hand wash on the label. All you need is a sink or tub and some detergent to get started.

  • 1
    Fill your sink or tub with warm water if you are washing regular machine wash clothes. Hand wash clothes usually require cold water.
    Add 1/4 cup of detergent to the water and mix it around. Soak the clothes in the water for awhile if there are any stains. This will minimize your work for washing

  • 3
    Start washing clothes one after the other. Knead the clothes in the water and twist them.

    After you are done washing your clothes you can add a half cup of fabric softener to the water and let the clothes soak for about a half an hour. This is optional, however.

  • 4
    Drain all the water from your sink.

    Rinse each article of clothing in water until all the detergent is gone.

    Hang the clothing up to dry on a rack or put them in the dryer if they are regular machine wash clothes. Hand wash clothes will need to air dry.
