Launry Prep Work
Prep work is an important step before starting any job; laundry is no exception. I have some tips to keep your clothes looking great and coming out clean! First, empty pockets and remove stickers and jewelry from the outside of clothing. Pre-treating is the best way to tackle stains in the laundry. This way you can treat specific stains with the right solutions and it saves time and money by eliminating the need to re-wash. Fasten buttons and snaps, pull up zippers and put hooks in place to avoid snagging in the wash. Tie drawstrings together so you don't have to fish them out of waistbands and hoods later on! Your clothes will last longer if you turn them inside out before putting them in the washer. Slip clothing like stockings and long underwear in a pillowcase and secure the top to avoid tangling and stretching in the wash. Easy prep work to get you on your way to some beautiful laundry!
