• For white blouses I would use warm water but for t-shirts, undies,washcloths I would use Hot water for disinfectant reasons & to whiten (gets rid of dirt better)along with a little bleach of course!
  • White clothing shows dirt more, and doesn't bleed. hot cleans much better. It's more like why don't you wash colors in hot water, because they bleed.
  • The actions of laundry chemicals,detergent and bleach are generally stronger in hot water than cold water. If whites are not totally clean it will show more than in colored loads.
  • 1-6-2017 To get it clean. Hot water dissolves oils better than cold water. Since many dyes are oil based, you wash colored fabrics at lower temperatures.
