The Laundry Wheel Pro Tip: Avoid Overusing Detergent

Hello and welcome to The Laundry Wheel laundromat's blog! We're excited to be writing about our recent Instagram post, which you can find here:

This post is all about the importance of properly cleaning your bedding and linens, and we couldn't agree more!

As a laundromat, we understand the importance of clean and fresh linens. Not only do they feel better to sleep on, but they're also important for our overall health and hygiene. In this post, we shared some tips for properly cleaning your bedding and linens, and we wanted to expand on those tips here.

First and foremost, it's important to wash your bedding and linens regularly. We recommend washing your sheets and pillowcases at least once a week, and your comforter or duvet cover at least once a month. This may seem like a lot, but your linens can quickly accumulate sweat, oils, dead skin cells, and even bacteria, so it's important to keep them clean.

When washing your linens, it's also important to use the right detergent and settings. We recommend using a gentle detergent, especially if you have sensitive skin, and using warm water rather than hot or cold. Hot water can damage some materials, while cold water may not effectively remove all the dirt and bacteria. You can also add a cup of white vinegar to the wash cycle to help remove any lingering odors.

Another tip for properly cleaning your bedding and linens is to make sure you're using the right cycle and settings for your washing machine. Some machines have a "bedding" or "delicate" cycle that's perfect for washing your sheets and comforters, while others may require a longer cycle to properly clean thicker materials. Make sure to check your machine's instructions or ask a professional if you're not sure what settings to use.

After washing your linens, it's important to properly dry them as well. We recommend using a low heat setting in the dryer or air-drying them outside if possible. High heat can damage some materials and shrink others, so it's best to err on the side of caution. If you're air-drying your linens, make sure to shake them out before hanging them up to avoid wrinkles.

In addition to regular washing and drying, there are a few other tips for keeping your linens fresh and clean. One is to change your pillowcase more frequently than your sheets, especially if you have oily or acne-prone skin. Another is to rotate your pillows and comforter regularly to help distribute wear and tear.

At The Laundry Wheel, we understand that not everyone has the time or resources to properly clean their linens at home. That's why we offer a variety of services to help keep your bedding and linens clean and fresh. Our wash-and-fold service is perfect for busy individuals and families who need a little extra help with their laundry. We'll take care of everything from washing and drying to folding and packaging, so you can focus on more important things.

Finally, we want to remind our readers that proper hygiene doesn't stop at clean linens. It's important to regularly clean your entire home, including your floors, surfaces, and bathroom. This can help prevent the spread of germs and bacteria and keep you and your family healthy.
