Wais moms start the New Year right with expertly sanitized clothing

Are you a mom who has been wracking her brain for ways to make 2021 truly better? Well, join the club. Last year has not been kind to parents, that is for sure.

Many of us struggled with the abrupt shift to work from home arrangements, not to mention juggling the added responsibilities of having the whole family (especially the kids) at home 24/7. But last year was especially taxing for mothers like us who now have to mom round the clock.

Of course, with time, we eventually learned how to better handle these changes in what is now considered as our new normal. Most wais moms now boast of tips and tricks for handling responsibilities from the office as well as our homes—all at the same time.

This year, we are still on the lookout for solutions that can make our lives easier. After all, we don’t want to spend all our time cleaning and disinfecting. We still have other responsibilities and want to spend more time with our families.

One task at home that really tires us out is doing the laundry. Ensuring that our clothing and linens are free of disease-causing germs and bacteria has become even more a top priority for us moms.

Some of us might have gotten used to throwing our dirty laundry into washing machines and forgetting about them until it’s time to take them out. Now, we are extra careful and want to make sure the clothes we washed are truly germ-free.

So how do we make sure that the clothes we wash are really clean?

1. Make sure that your washing machine is clean to begin with

Most people forget that washing machines also need cleaning. Regular maintenance of your laundry machine will help prevent the buildup of dirt, soap residue, and mold or mildew that can be damaging to your clothes and harmful to your health.

2. Separate and wash items according to “pathogen risk”

Make sure to separate items according to levels of pathogen risk, and wash individual loads, from medium risk to high risk. High pathogen risk means items are highly contaminated, such as pet beddings or clothing that has been worn by someone sick. Medium risk means items may carry low-level pathogens or contaminants such as underwear and regular clothing.

3. If possible, use appropriate temperature settings

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends the highest appropriate temperature setting for washing dirty clothing, towels, and linens. It is also advisable to wear disposable gloves when handling a sick person’s dirty laundry and washing your hands immediately after.

4. Clean your laundry with an effective detergent

Of course, having an effective antibacterial detergent also helps keep clothing, towels and linens clean. This is why wais moms will find their perfect partner in germ-busting in the new and improved Surf Powder Active Clean Antibacterial which can kill up to 99.9% of germs.

Each sachet of the new and improved Surf Powder Active Clean Antibacterial not only offers germicidal benefits, but also superior cleaning, whitening, and fragrance – all these benefits for the wais price of only P5.50 SRP.
