Clean Laundry Tips | Ellenton
Manasota Wash and Fold here in the Ellenton area has laundry tips to get your laundry clean and bright. We want to help you get the best results possible every time you do a load of laundry.
Detergent – It all starts with the right detergent. Don’t just go for the cheapest, you want a detergent that has enzymes in the formula. Enzymes are what will remove the dirt and stains. Lipase and protease enzymes, break down fats and oils. Their ability to break down these compounds makes them excellent for stain removal. Keep in mind that powdered detergents are usually less expensive, but may not dissolve correctly in cold water. This will leave a residue on your laundry.
Separate – Make sure you are washing the same type of laundry together. Separate your laundry according to whites, light and dark clothing. Many people have a separate wash for towels and blankets that tend to make a lot of lint. Red clothing needs to be washed with dark colors. New clothing that may bleed, can be washed alone for the first couple of washing. You don’t want the items bleeding onto other items.
Water Temperature – It’s important to select the right water temperature to make sure dark colors don’t bleed and really dirty clothing gets really clean. Hot water is also great for getting whites nice and bright.
Stains – Catch stains early, the earlier the better. Treat them with a stain remover and run under water to get out as much of the stain as possible before washing.
Labels – Read the labels. Most items, clothing, sheets, blankets have instructions that tell you exactly what type of washing and drying the item needs to keep its shape, color and keep from shrinking.
