    Yes, I too have been greasy type marks on some of my clothes. I have not been using any fabric softener and it doesn't seem to matter if I use cold, warm or hot water washes. Out of one load, only one shirt will have a stains on it??? I have run a complete cycle using bleach and the temperature boost cycle. Once the stains are on the clothes they are impossible to get out.

Problem will be the use of fabric softner or too much detergent. The stain you are seeing is generally to animal fat that is present in fabric softner, Best solution is to cut back on the amount of softner being used, same with powder.

I need to get the metal pole the hold the steamer hose up when not in use on the Tobi clothes steamer.


A steamer can safely and quickly remove odor, folding marks, small and shallow wrinkles from most fabrics. It's sufficient to make a garment look fresh and neat, but not enough for dress shirts.I hand wash all my dress shirts when I shower. Squeeze and shake them to get the excess water off, stretch the fabric a little to avoid forming deep wrinkles, and then hang them dry. Ironing the collar, cuffs and the easily removable small wrinkles takes no time.

What is turning


Could be a couple of things.

If you are sewing a new collar, turning is done after you've sewn three edges together and then you turn the item so the right sides are out and the raw seams are enclosed inside the collar. Then the collar is attached to the garment using the fourth (unsewn) edge.

Or turning on an old, worn garment is when the collar or cuff is unstitched from the shirt and then flipping it over so the worn part is on the underside and the fresh, clean part is facing up (as against the neck edge or, in the case of a cuff, against the arm). This is an idea from the depression era when people wanted to get more use out of an item that was showing wear.

Black stains on white dress shirts


The rollers, guides, or wheels that are used to support the clothes drum may be worn out. When this happens, it may cause the drum to drop down slightly in the front or rear. Clothes can get caught between the front or rear of the drum and the dryer interior. This can cause clothing to have marks and/or tears. Check out the rollers, guides, and wheels for excessive wear or damage. Sure hope this helped ya!

If you wash your clothes with warm or hot water, try using ONLY cold to see if the problem goes away. Sometimes older water heaters start to produce rusty-colored water as they age.

Stains on clothes


Check the fit of the agitator to the bottom of the drum. After this many years, it may have warped up to make a gap. Run a rag around the joint to see if it marks.

STAINED WHITE T-SHIRTS, DULL LINEN


Hi! I am a habitual cleaning type person and clean clothes rate at the top of my list. I have 4 recommendations that SHOULD help tremendously for ALL your clothes but is most evident in your whites.
#1 is the right washer. I NEVER knew how clean my clothes could come out till the past year and a half I finally bought front loader. And let me tell you was I ever surprised at how clean and soft they were, LIKE NEW! Those old top loaders,even the new ones are no comparison to the front loading systems. BUT expensive if you have to go out and buy a new one BUT also a GOOD excuse to tell hubby you need a new one...LOL
#2 Always use liquid detergents, they seem to wash and rinse out so much better than any powder
#3 A HUGE helping hand I discovered some 30 years back that I STILL have not found that can be beat is "BIZ" bleach. It's miraculous! It's a great pre-treater to soak badly needed whites in and helps to retain bright colors if used in non-white laundry. Actually I even use it in a powder form. AFter loading all my clothes in m y front loader I scoop out a cup and actually scatter it OVER my laundry. Then add the liquid detergent (Tide or the like, I get mine at Costco or Sam's club depending on what region you live in) and wash like normal.
#4 Last but not least, for whites and ALL colors I have found nothing better than DAWN dish washing liquid. Immediately pre-treat ANY stain no matter the size with Dawn and just fold it over and toss it in the laundry. Best if washed within the same week at the latest.
GOOD LUCK to all you Domestic Goddesses! ;-)~

Clothes coming out with stains they didn't have - looks like oil/grease


Front load greasy residue ,

Due usually to much detergent in each load, use smaller amounts.
To much detergent degrades the rubber seals and gaskets and rubber seal also in some front loaders around the door too!

Over the life of a front loading washer the seal/gasket degrades
largely due to the chemicals in the detergent as well as bleach.

Most gaskets/seals get hard and brittle therefore the over the life of a front loading washer
the seal/gasket degrades largely due to the chemicals in the detergent as well as bleach.

....please rate this ....thanks
