Washing and Drying Tips
Ask any Laundromat owner or manager what one of their biggest problems is and you’re sure to hear “Customers use too much detergent in the washing machines” or “Oversudsing!”
The fact is that manufacturers of laundry detergent are making the detergent stronger and more concentrated which means that the customers should be using less.
Save money and get laundry cleaner at Chicago Lake Coin Laundry by using the proper amount of laundry detergent. Here’s why:
Detergents are expensive! Use too much and you are wasting money. The less detergent you use, the less time and money you will spend at the store buying it.
Detergent, bleach, and fabric softener are all chemicals. The more you use, the more you are breaking down the fabric that holds those garments together. Using the proper amount of detergent will help extend the life of the garments you are washing. You’ll spend less time and money shopping for new clothes.
Using the proper amount of detergent ensures that the washing machine will be able to rinse the detergent out in the rinse cycles. This means whiter whites and brighter colors! Soap residue left in the material can cause skin irritations for babies and those with sensitive skin. Residue left in materials also acts as a magnet for odors and dirt. Clothing will soil sooner which means you will be spending time and money to wash more often. As much as we like seeing you, we like saving you time and money even more!
The cost of unnecessary repairs due to overuse of detergents and other chemicals can be in the hundreds, or even thousands of dollars. A laundry that has to keep repairing and replacing electrical parts, such as motors due to oversudsing, is likely to pass that cost on to the customer in the form of higher wash and dry prices.
The next time you see someone dumping a twenty-six load bottle of detergent into four washing machines just remember, that mistake is not only wasteful and costly to that customer, but eventually you could be paying for that mistake as well.
