How To Do Laundry?

How can owning such a business be low risk? The short answer is that laundry is one of those tasks that will always need to be done.

Master laundry fundamentals with this seven-step guide on how to wash and dry clothes.

Laundry basics start with getting clothes washer-ready.

          * Empty pockets, close zippers, fasten hooks  and tie strings.

          * Pretreat any stains that may need it. 

          * Turn sweaters inside out to help avoid  pilling the little fuzz balls.

There are three ways to sort. Sort by color first, then consider fabric type and soil level until you have full loads of similar clothes. Check your item’s tag for any special needs that may affect sorting. 

                             COLOR   : Whites, Lights, Darks

                   FABRIC TYPE : Denim, Cotton, Synthetics, Blends,                                                                                                                                                                    Delicates, Towels and Bedding
                    SOIL LEVEL  :  Heavily soiled, Lightly soiled

            *  If your washer requires High-Efficiency (HE) detergent,                                    check that you’re using HE detergent. .

            * Pour detergent in the dispenser or, if there isn’t one, directly into                   the tub. Follow the instructions on the packaging when                                     measuring.

            *  If using a detergent pod, place it in the bottom of the tub.

         *  Load items into washer loosely and evenly around the tub,                   giving them room to move.

        *  When washing bulky single items like a rug or jacket, add a                   few extra items around the tub to balance the weight.  

            *  Select a cycle that matches your load. You may select a                                  different  wash temperature based on the soil level and type of                        fabric being washed.

            *  Use a low speed spins for delicate and a high speed spins for                          sturdier fabrics.

            *  Select add-ons like steam or a longer soak for loads needing                            extra cleaning.

         *  Start transferring clothes to the dryer as soon as possible.

        *  As you load, leave out stained items and anything that                          recommends air drying on the tag.

        *  Clean the dryer’s lint screen by rolling lint off with your                          fingers. Do not use water to remove lint.
