    separate from the other clothes

    What does this ")separate from the other clothes" describe? "them"? Doesn't "separated from" also work?

    18)That's not all. My daughter's clothes smell awful. I have to wash them over and over,
    separate from the other clothes. Also, she never finishes her dinner because she wants to take leftovers to school for the pig.

    The clothes smell so bad that she has to wash them separately. In this use "separate" works better for me, but "separated" would work.
