I know nothing about clothes and since you guys know everything I figured I would ask here. Sorry if this isn't allowed but part of fashion is keeping shit clean, right? For pretty much my entire life I just did exactly what the tag inside the clothes said to do in terms of cleaning them, but I've realized that running a single load of like 3 shirts isn't very efficient.
Right now I have 2 types of clothes: the ones I don't give a fuck about, and the ones I do.
Boxers, socks, towels, bedsheets, etc are all shit I don't give a fuck about. I throw these all in together and I'm pretty sure I want to wash them on warm? I'm not worried about color bleeding or anything since it's never happened with these kind of things, but I'm not sure what setting is the most efficient to clean this stuff.
Then there's the stuff I care about. I have a couple pairs of really nice jeans, some really nice t-shirts, and a couple really expensive coats. Some of my jeans say wash hot, some say wash cold (same with my shirts) so should I just throw all my nice jeans and shirts that say "wash cold" in together or are they going to get damaged (jeans are pretty heavy and t-shirts are pretty thin)? Should I ignore the label and just wash all my shirts cold or something?
Also is there any use at all for the "hot" water setting? I've seen labels for cold, warm, and perm. press but never hot.
