Patches of green or green stains on clothes from a washing machine

  Appearance

White garments have a green tinge to them, often in patches when removed from the washing machine.

This problem is not due to a fault with your washing machine and a service visit cannot solve this issue.

  Treatment

Soak the garment overnight in warm water (40°C) containing a flaked bar of soap, eg, Fairy or Camay soap. Wash as normal following the fabric care label. Alternatively, hang the garment in bright sunlight. This should remove the green tinge; if not, the discolouration is possibly due to dye transfer.

Cause & Prevention

  Cause

Photobleaches in detergents are designed to give extra cleaning even after washing. The effect of sunlight on these increases the detergent performance. In a small number of cases this may leave a green tinge on your white garments.

  Prevention

Use the correct detergent dosage depending on the soil level on the garments.

 

  How You Can Get Help With Laundry Problems

To offer support in helping people to determine the cause of laundry problems please use the washing machine support forum.

It’s fast, free, easy and normally someone will pick up on the post that can assist you often with a few experts chipping in if needed. Just register if you don’t have an account, we don’t mail you, send you spam or any of that stuff.

Post up your question and give images if you possibly can and the guys in the forums will do the rest for you and try to identify the problem you have.

Cost you nothing, might save you some embarrassment or worse, a charge for a service visit that wasn’t needed.

  Photographs Of Damage

If you can post photographs of the damage or problem you are having this can be really helpful in allowing the technicians to see what the problem is.
