Before, my mother didn’t use her automatic washing machine for most of her clothes. She only used it for her comforters and bedsheets. She would always tell me that the constant spinning and heat of the laundry process damage clothes.
We introduced to her the use of a fabric conditioner. Good thing, she was convinced that fabric softener protects clothes from the damage of the wash. She bought the idea that fabcon smoothens and strengthens fiber to maintain the clothes’ shape. And by smoothing the fibers, the fabcon reduces the friction between them. After all, it’s the friction that causes the fibers to break, leading to dull and faded looking clothes.
