I’m 17 and sadly my mom still does my laundry for me (not that I mind :p), but the other day I bought a shirt and when I come home, I found out that it’s rayon and therefore needs to be hand-washed. My mom refuses to do this for me so I have to do it myself… my only question is; is hand-washing basically exactly what it sounds like? Me + sink + soap + new shirt? That’s it?
Someone give me a step by step, please!
What do I use if there’s a stain in it? :/
It’s a really cute shirt, so I’m willing to do this, even though I’d rather not, lol.

Lynn there is another way to wash clothes, just use your bathtub. That way you don’t have to use a broom stick (which probably has dirt on it) and it’s easier to get into and swish around.

Don’t use Woolite! Use cold, but not icy, water and shampoo, then rinse it really well. Don’t ever twist the wool to get the water out – just squeeze it and then dry it flat. If it’s a sweater and too big for the sink, fill the washing machine with cool water and hand wash it in there.
When our washing machine broke once and wouldn’t agitate, we figured out that we could still wash a load of clothes in it. Just put the clothes in, let the water come in, and then stir the clothes with a broomstick. Rinse the same way, then squeeze the water out of the clothes one at a time and hang them on a line to drip dry.

When my daughter forgets to put her gym clothes in the wash at night, she takes them in the shower with her and washes them by hand with regular body soap while she takes her shower. They come out just fine and usually dry overnight.
They’ll last longer if you wash by hand. Run warm water in the sink and put in a little bit of Woolite or baby soap. Swish the pantyhose around a little, let them soak about ten minutes, then rinse and squeeze them out and hang them to dry in the shower.

You can’t wash jeans in the sink. There’s not enough room, you won’t be able to get them clean.

Use the kitchen sink, or the bathroom sink if it’s big enough, and just do one or two things at a time. Or you can wash a few pairs of socks or underwear at a time. Rinse the clothes out under warm water before you fill the sink with water and soap. Mix them around, rub the cloth together in places where there are spots, then let them sit for a while. Drain the sink, squeeze the excess water out of the clothes, then rinse twice to get all the soap out. Wring out again and hang to dry, maybe over the bathtub so they won’t drip all over the floor.
