Why not to overload your machine

A new washing machine can really improve the efficiency of your wash. If you overload it, however, you won’t just lose that efficiency, but you may end up with dirty clothes. Even worse, you can even damage your machine while washing your clothes.

Yet how do you know if you’ve overloaded your machine?

Washing machine drums also have a weight limit, so be careful not to overdo that. Generally, the average washing machine can take 3kg, with larger ones available. As always, check your instruction manual to be sure.

What can happen if you overload your machine, though?

Well, the best case scenario is that your clothes just don’t get clean. Sometimes they’ll even come out smelling worse than before.

That’s because those clothes absorb all the water, leaving no space for your detergent to dissolve. That also means that you can get horrible detergent marks on your garments, too. It doesn’t matter if you use Ariel Power Gel, you won’t get that better tough stain removal with too many garments in your drum.

Machine washing makes serpentine garments

You can also get a clothes snake, where all your items get rolled up together. Then only the outside gets washed and everything wrapped in the middle stays as dirty as before.

Worse, though, you can end up with detergent residue in your machine, which can be harmful. Overload too often and you can damage your washing machine so all your loads come out smelling worse than when you put them in.

Now you’ve given the space for Ariel Power Gel to work its magic, every time.
