Top Laundry Tips for Sevenoaks Students going to University. By Sevenoaks Chronicle

Shrunk washing
Many of the young adults will be taking on household chores for the first time as they leave their parental home to continue their studies.
Experts at ACE Gentle, one of the leading stain remover and detergent boosters on the market, have put together their top tips to help the laundry first-timers
Read the labels to prevent disasters!
Check the care instructions on the garment's label – this will explain what temperature and cycle to wash clothes on and whether they can be tumble-dried.
Separate clothes
Avoid the old clich̩ of turning white clothes pink by separating out loads into categories Рfor example, whites, brights, darks and delicates Рdon't be tempted to throw everything in together! New clothes, such as jeans, might bleed dye into the wash so keep them separate for the first few washes.
Pre-treat stubborn stains
Getting stuck into university life is an important part of the experience, so it's inevitable that clothing will get stained with things such as beer, ketchup and mud. These type of tricky stains can be removed if dealt with promptly and properly. ACE is formulated to tackle the eight most common stains caused by dirt, grease, makeup, body soils, food, drink, outdoor and enzymatics, so it's good to have a bottle handy.
Keep clothes looking good for longer
Adding a detergent booster, such as ACE, to every wash will help keep whites whiter and colours brighter for longer. Turn clothes inside out – jeans lose less dye and wool items are less likely to go bobbly when washed inside out.
Dry laundry properly
Use the tumble dry function if available, but be aware that certain items may be too delicate to tumble-dry and wool can shrink in the dryer. Alternatively, hang clean clothes up immediately and allow them to dry and air adequately, ideally on a clothes line.
Kevin Day, from Robinson Young, UK distributor for ACE, said: "From clean duvet covers and towels to fresh underwear and clothes, laundry is something that teenagers might have taken for granted until they left the parental home for university.
"Laundry needn't be challenging though. ACE is inexpensive and easy-to-use and it will take care of clothes and leave them clean and smelling fresh."
ACE Gentle Classic (1L) retails at £1.99 and is available from Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury's, and selected Asda stores.
A 700ml bottle is available from Poundstretcher, Poundland, 99p Stores and Poundworld.
