Certain laundry products work better in some machines than others. At Hotpoint we know this is true because
we’ve done the research to prove it. We used real everyday clothes and ran tests to find out which washing powder
works best with Hotpoint. The results proved that Hotpoint and Ariel produces the best washing results on all your
Ariel can meet all your laundry needs. It is available as a biological powder for everyday wash loads. Colour powder to
keep your clothes staying brighter for longer and a Non-Bio powder for when you need brilliant cleaning but are
concerned about sensitive skin.

Washcare Tips
DO NOT overload or underload the machine (see
the Programme Table for maximum load), in addition
to reducing the quality of the wash this may also
damage your laundry and the machine, whilst
causing the machine to become unstable and noisy.
We strongly recommend that you DO NOT wash
underwired bras in this machine. Should the
wires become detached it could cause damage to
your laundry and the machine. If the washcare
label states that the bra is machine washable,
then we advise placing it in a sealed pillow case or
a similar washbag.
Remember you will be charged for a service
engineers visit resulting from a detached bra wire.
Do not use the machine if the item to be washed
does not have a wash label.
Before washing laundry we recommend you:
Pre-treat awkward stains with washable treatments.
Do not wash any items that have previously been
treated with solvents.
Close zips, fasten belts, tie strings and close
press studs to prevent tangling.
Empty all objects from pockets as they may
damage the laundry and the machine.
Remember you will be charged for a service
engineers visit to rectify malfunction resulting from
objects such as coins, pens, hair grips etc. falling
from pockets.
Limit the size of absorbent loads ie. towels, to half
loads to give good washing and rinsing results.
Place small items in a wash bag.
Always follow the care label on items when
choosing the wash programme.
Wash non-colourfast items or really dirty items
separately as they may affect other laundry.
