One of the best ways to judge whether or not you have reached adulthood is when you start having to do your own laundry. If you come from a home where Mom has always done it for you, it can be a big adjustment. Now that you are on your own you will quickly learn that you are now the responsible party. No need to fear, we are going to offer up some great tips for getting your laundry done here and in our next blog post. If you do not have laundry machines in your apartment or home, we recommend finding a laundromat in your area. Choose one that is clean and offers additional services as well. Are you a laundromat owner and need help with new vended equipment? T & L offers the best equipment on the market to laundromat owners in Asheville! Contact us to learn more.
To get started these are some good tips for getting your clothing ready for laundering:
First, you will want to get rid of stains. Threats are everywhere. Things like sunscreen, barbecue sauce, and playing in the grass and dirt all have the potential to leave a serious stain on your clothes. Have a good stain removal product on hand and be sure to use it ASAP. It is really important to pretreat all stains before they go in the washing machine.
Take the time to sort your clothes properly before heading to the laundromat. This is a simple way to sort:
- Light colors
You can also continue the sorting by:
- Separating lint makers such as towels and blankets from lint magnets such as corduroy and fleece items.
- Natural fibers from synthetic fibers. Because these items dry at different rates throwing them in together can be a bad idea.
- Tough fabrics like your jeans need to be washed separately from delicate fabrics such as silks.
- Wash all lingerie and hosiery in a mesh bag to keep straps and stockings from tangling in the washer.
- If you have any clothing that has a mix of bright colors such as a red and white striped top it is a good idea to launder these separately. These colors can run and will damage other items.
Another great tip is that some clothing is not necessarily dirty after the first wear. Often things like jeans, shorts, towels, and bathing suits don’t need to be washed every time they’re used. A swimsuit can be rinsed and hung up between uses. A good rule of thumb is if it is not visibly dirty and it doesn’t smell, it can be worn again without being washed.
One of the best tips is to invest in a couple of extra hampers to keep your clothes from migrating all over the place. It will also make sorting as you go easier. Just use one for darks, one for lights, and one for delicates. When it is time to head out to the laundromat the hard work is done.
