I also turn almost all of our clothes inside out before washing & don’t turn them right side out until they come out of the dryer. This helps prevent some fading & seems to really keep them looking less worn out.
Many frugalistas use half the amount of laundry detergent than it says to on the bottle/box. The manufacturers would like you to use more of course. If you put just washed clothes through another rinse cycle and suds are still coming out in the rinse water you have used too much soap. This will give you an idea of how much soap is still left in your clothes. Why waste detergent?
Of course if you have an extra grimy load you’ll need more soap. Sometimes you can use the normal amount of soap on a dirty load & let it soak overnight after some agitations to get the soap mixed in well. Then just turn off the machine & let it sit to soak. Start it up again in the morning & see if the load is clean by the end of the cycle.
I don’t hang my clothes on a clothes line, but I do hang up certain shirts to air dry after going around in the dryer a few minutes. It seems to lessen the wear & tear on the clothes. I put them on hangers & onto the shower rod to dry the rest of the way. When dry they are ready for the closet. Easy.
