How do you make the decision to use hot, warm or cold water for your wash? Some customers have the preference to always use cold water, but sometimes for sanitizing you need to use a hotter temperature. When all else fails, follow the instructions on the garment tags. For most, however, it is less expensive to wash loads combined. In that case, cold water is always the best bet. Wash like colors together. Whites – use hot / for towels – use hot / for bright colors – use cold / for grays and tans – you can use warm / for clothes that have been washed alot – use warm. For all circumstances, use your best guess – new jeans / cold – red / COLD!! The milder the soap, the less fading occurs as well.
Whether the weather is warm or cold, we still have laundry. Taxes and laundry are all certains. The weather is not!! We have seen shorts and tank tops in the laundry one day and sweaters and sweatshirts the next – and all of it “has to be done” right now laundry!! Sweatshirts, tank tops, shorts, sweats – we wash it all no matter when you wear it.
What to do if you have a pillow come apart in the washer – don’t panic. Come and get one of us and we will help you get it clenaed up, sometimes a pillow has a small tear in it that is aggravated by the motion of the washer. Most of it will go down the drain, but any big pieces of fluff left, we can vacuum them out with the shop vac.
