If you have lots of laundry to do, it might seem like an economical and time-saving idea to slightly overload the washing machine. The problem with this cleaning tactic is the weight of the excess wet clothing will eventually wear out the machine's internal drum and start to decrease the machine's overall cleaning efficiency. When clothing doesn't have room to be agitated during washing, it doesn't come out clean. And running your laundry through the cycle a second time adds up to more water and energy waste. Save time and resources by not overloading your washing machine!
