Fall is here, and you know what that means – it's time to freshen up your laundry routine! Get ready for the cooler weather without losing your mind or time.
Here are some handy fall laundry tips to keep your clothes cozy and clean:
1. Embrace Lower Temperatures
As the weather cools down, switch to using colder water for your laundry. It saves energy and helps your clothes last longer.
Here at Soap Opera Laundromats, we use the San-O3-Wash System, an innovative new system that uses a perfect amount of ozone in every wash cycle. Adding ozone to the wash allows the use of lower-temperature water in a hot cycle; reduces the wear on fabrics.
2. Deal with Sweater Weather
The best way to launder knit sweaters is to turn the sweater inside out before placing it into the washing machine. Turning it inside out will prevent that unsightly pilling that makes knitwear look old and worn. Even better, put knit sweaters into a mesh laundry bag inside out and really protect that knit.
3. Say Goodbye to Musty Smells
If your fall jackets or scarves have been in storage, give them a quick refresh by tossing them in the dryer with a damp towel for a few minutes.
IF a full wash is needed to freshen up those jackets and cold weather wear, white vinegar is a wonder, it is a natural alternative cleaner and deodorizer. Simply pour a half cup of distilled white vinegar into your next load instead of your usual detergent.
Or drop by a Soap Opera Laundromat location near you and take advantage of our San-O3-Wash System, it eliminates odors without any additional additives.
4. Dryer Sheet Hack
The holidays are just around the corner and for many of us that means house guests. A great way to keep your home smelling terrific and make a great impression on those overnight holiday guests is as simple as using a dryer sheet.
After laundering your linens (sheets, towels, etc.) toss a dryer sheet in when you are putting them away, this will keep them smelling fresh when you pull them out for guests.
Easy Peasy Laundry
So, tackle fall and the laundry chores easily this year and remember, a little extra care in the fall can help your favorite clothes stay cozy and stylish all season long!
