How should polyester be washed?

Polyester is known as easy care. But how should polyester be washed? Polyester is a synthetic fiber, which is characterized by tear resistance and easy care. The advantage is: it dries very fast. At what temperature should polyester be washed? The best washing temperature, where nothing can go wrong, is 40 ° C – in no case more than 60 ° C. Please note the manufacturer label before washing. As a rule, polyester is washed in a fine or gentle cycle. If you observe the temperature and the fine or gentle cycle, then polyester can not shrink during washing.

History of the washing machine

History of the washing machine
By the end of the 17th century, the laundry was still laboriously cleaned on lakes and rivers by hand. The inventor John Tizack thought, it must be a machine that makes laundry easier.

First of all, his washing machines were found mainly in industrial laundries, which achieved better washing results with technical assistance. Since the 18th century, many other inventors have dealt with the subject of washing machines. In 1902, the first mechanical washing machine with a perforated washing drum was built, but still had to be worked by hand. And as early as 1909, our first washing machine came on the market, until the first metal washing machine from STAHL lasted until 1948.
