Washing cloths with tapping muds on it...


I have washed my cloths which I used for tapping drywall which got muds on them in my wash machine...

Is this a big NO NO... as th mud can cause drains clogging...

I was thinking the mud on the cloths is kind of so minimum and when got diluted with water which should be ok.... Now... I want to confirm... this is not an issue... or what contractor usually do with their mudded clothings... How do they wash them? and get rid of the water....

I can't see mud from your clothes clogging the drainlines. It would have to fit through the holes in the washer drum first, and then go through the pump. These two things should break any pieces up small enough to easily go through the drains. The pressure from the washer pump should also push it through the trap. Dried mud should be peeled off clothes before washing. You aren't helping the washer when you subject it to these conditions. I am sure most drywallers don't have "chunks" of mud on their clothes.
