Frigidaire "Adventures in Clean"

Frigidaire has come out with a great new collection called the Affinity Collection. Since Frigidaire has come out with Affinity they would love to share some wonderful stain fighting tips from the laundry expert Tara Aronson as part of their "Adventures in Clean". 
Tips for Laundry & Stains:
  1. Immediately rinse or blot away spills on your clothes with cool water to prevent stains from setting.  
  2. Before washing stained garments, pretreat or prewash the spot using the Affinity’s Rinse & Spin cycle. If at first you don’t succeed, wash, wash again.
  3. To keep snags and lint to a minimum, zip zippers, button buttons, empty pockets, and brush away lint before tossing duds in the hamper.
  4. Check wet garments for remaining stains, and re-treat as needed before drying. Heat will set stains.
  5. Dry only full loads. Tumbling a handful of garments prolongs the drying time by reducing the tumbling.
By following those tips you will not only keep your clothes free of stains but it will also help keep your clothing to last longer. There are also some dreaded summer stains that are hard to get rid of but luckily Tara Aronson has some more great tips on these dreaded stains.

The best thing you can do for a better chance to rid the stain is to not let it dry, so blot excess, never rub. Also run under cold water, hot water can set a stain in. 

1. Crayon.
Scrape off as much of the colorful surface as possible using a plastic picnic knife. Apply laundry detergent directly on the stained area. Gently rub the detergent into the fabric then let sit several minutes. Launder using the hottest water the fabric can handle - or the Sanitize setting of your Frigidaire Affinity washer. Dry as usual.

2. Iced coffee.
Sponge the stained area with cold water. Apply a pretreater to the blight. Wash as usual and air dry. (I know I have spilled mine before, great tip!)

3. Chocolate (or chocolate ice cream).
Prewash the garment in warm water with a laundry detergent that contains enzymes using the Affinity’s Rinse & spin setting. Launder as usual, using the washing machine’s Normal setting. Dry as usual.
