Myth-Busting Laundry Tips

 Myth-Busting Laundry Tips

When it comes to laundry, most of the tips we’ve acquired over the years have been passed down to us from our parents, family, or friends. Unfortunately, a lot of these so-called tricks are nothing more than myths. That’s right, we said it!

At Pinkish Pods, we want to provide nothing but the cold, hard facts to help you get in line with our mission to establish a more environmentally-friendly approach to laundry globally. So, let’s take a closer look at some myth-busting laundry tips.

Myth: You Don’t Need to Clean Your Machine

Contrary to popular belief, washing machines do, need to be cleaned on a routine basis. Experts recommend cleaning your washing machine at least once a month to help reduce exposure to germs and bacteria that can build up in the rubber seals of your washer. Thankfully, most washers today actually have cleaning cycles, making this process easier than ever.

Myth: Only Hot Water Cleans Clothes

Studies have shown that it doesn’t matter whether your laundry is set to hot or cold; some germs can survive wash cycles. So, rather than focusing so much attention on the energy-consuming high-temperature water of your laundry, focus your attention more on the ingredients in your detergent for disinfecting.

Myth: The More Soap, The Better

Laundry detergent companies use marketing schemes to promote the idea that more detergent equates to cleaner clothes. This idea couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, using too much detergent in your laundry can leave buildup and residue, potentially damaging your clothes and your machine.

At Pinkish Pods, we prefer to leave the gimmicks behind, which is why our product is as concentrated as possible, requiring no more than one single-chambered capsule per laundry load. It’s as simple as popping one capsule into the washer without any space for confusion.
