Sort your clothes as you go.
Just toss your colors, whites and towels into separate compartments as you use them.

Turn your clothes inside out when washing so the colors don’t run, edges don’t fray and help your clothes last longer. Whether you believe me or not, it’s worth a try. Plus, it’s interesting to see which clothes turn themselves right side out by the time they’re through the dryer. This happens to me a lot.

Seems logical, but some people miss this. Put the soap in before adding your clothes. If you put clothes in first and then soap there’s a good chance the clothes on the bottom won’t get any soapy water.
4 Bag Laundry Sorter on Wheels
Don’t mix loads. Mixing reds with whites turns the whites into pinks. Mixing delicates with jeans will damage the delicate fabric. Basically, follow the tag instructions and wash clothes with like items, meaning similar fabrics and colors. You’ll do a few more loads this way, but your clothes will last longer.
