Wear More, Wash Less
Since cotton is breathable and doesn’t retain odors like oil-based fabrics, you can save your clothes a few trips to the hamper between wears. Not doing laundry is awesome, of course. Plus, you’ll save money, water and energy, and help your clothes last even longer.
- Using too much detergent is worse than not using enough because it speeds up the wear and tear of your clothes and sends your money down the drain. Take the time to read the directions and measure the proper amount of detergent required for your load.
- A half cup of white vinegar added to the rinse cycle works like magic to kill germs, whiten whites, get rid of odors and makes your clothes soft and fluffy.
History of Cotton
In the Indus River Valley in Pakistan, cotton was being grown, spun and woven into cloth 3,000 years BC. At about the same time, natives of Egypt’s Nile valley were making and wearing cotton clothing.
Arab merchants brought cotton cloth to Europe about 800 A.D. When Columbus discovered America in 1492, he found cotton growing in the Bahama Islands. By 1500, cotton was known generally throughout the world.
Cotton seed are believed to have been planted in Florida in 1556 and in Virginia in 1607. By 1616, colonists were growing cotton along the James River in Virginia.
Cotton was first spun by machinery in England in 1730. The industrial revolution in England and the invention of the cotton gin in the U.S. paved the way for the important place cotton holds in the world today.
