Laundry tips.

Probably the first problem that most people have trouble with is getting the odor and stains out of laundry, when you're caring for someone with incontinence.

First, let's talk briefly about fabrics and colors. The worst fabrics to use are polyester, polyester blends, rayons, spandex, etc. Basically the worst are man-made fibers. Even cotton blends can turn colors because they are not fully cotton.

Many 100% cotton fabrics will claim that you cannot use chlorine bleach and that's usually because it's dyed and bleach will stain them. Try to go with lighter colors and try to stick with pure cotton or natural fibers. It is really unreasonable to believe that your loved one cannot wear anything colorful, it just may not clean up as well.
