Whether you run a full service, a coin operated system or a self-service laundry, laundry owners have told us some of their biggest problems so we have highlighted below tips to make you get the most out of your wash every time!
Try not to worry, unlike some other experimental methods, our tips will not ask you to re-wash anything, or make the colors fade faster, or have any of the freshness lost!
First thing’s first. Are you using the strengths of your washing powder, liquid detergent and fabric softener? Learning which product to use when will help you save money by getting the best wash possible, help avoid rewashing, or help avoid unnecessary damage to your fabrics. Here is our quick guide to learning the difference between the three.
Ariel or Tide goes well with Downy Freshness - Using a washing powder and a fabric softener together helps you get great clean clothes and helps reduce damage to fibers from the wash process. The polymer system inside Tide or Ariel helps avoid redepositing of soils which can cause dinginess especially over time. The different enzymes within the product boost the stain removal power across many different types of stains! There are also surfactants that helps remove those greasy stains from food. Lastly, Downy helps protect the fibers and also provides that fresh clean smell.
Did you know that generic powders need much more product to do a good job? With both Ariel and Tide, they only require 1 scoop of powder to do the same job as with 3 scoops of a generic powder. Remember that your rewashing costs can climb up and up as well, so make sure to invest on good quality detergent!
To get the best out of your front loading washing machine or your top loading washing machine you must be careful to ensure there is enough free flowing water and free space in the machine drum. Some experts’ advice is to leave a hand width gap between the top of your laundry and the drum so that clothes and other items can move freely and ensure that washing is effective. Always follow maximum capacity recommendation of your particular washing machine. Remember that the dirtier the laundry the more space you should leave in the machine for better cleaning!
