Depending on your fabric type and the instructions on your care tag, select your desired washing cycle. Generally, washing clothing in cold water can help prevent garments from shrinking, while warm water can help remove stains and soils that are temperature dependent.
Refer to your owner’s manual for your washer’s specific cycles and settings. Below are generally recommended wash methods and cycles for common fabrics and colors. As always, please refer to the care tag on the garment that you are washing.
