How Often to Wash Bras, According to Laundry Experts 09/11/2022

How Often to Wash Bras, According to Laundry Experts

Interesting short read regarding the laundering of bras ladies.

How Often to Wash Bras, According to Laundry Experts Laundry experts weigh in on how often to wash your bra and how to wash bras in the washing machine.


Please excuse our mess....Tomorrow we will be getting a new roof placed. We will still be open our regular hours 8am to 630pm.


Always read your labels before washing items. Here are what those symbols on your care tags mean.


Laundry do's and don'ts

3. DON’T put fabric conditioner directly on top of laundry
Fabric conditioner should never come in direct contact with clothes as it could stain them. Consult your washing machine manual and find the correct compartment in the detergent drawer for the conditioner to be placed in – it’s usually marked with a flower.


Laundry do's and don'ts

DON’T overload your machine
Clothes crammed into the washing machine won’t be able to move around enough to get a proper clean so you could end up needing to wash them again! Likewise, do not wash small loads using a large load cycle – this will use an unnecessary amount of water and energy.


DO put detergent in the right place

Always read the packaging of your detergent to learn how to measure and use that specific product. As a general rule, you can consult these guidelines:

Measure liquid detergents using the measuring cap or dosing ball and place the whole ball in you washing machine drum after your clothes.

Measure washing powders using the scoop provided and pour into the correct compartment of the detergent drawer (check your owner manual for this).

Add washing tablets to the detergent drawer or the washing machine drum before your clothes, according to the instructions for your machine,

Just like washing machine tablets, how to use laundry capsules is easy and straightforward. Pop one at the back of the drum before your clothes and go!

At the laundromat remember pods and beads must go in with the clothes for our front loaders because won't dissolve correctly if placed in the top.

For all top loaders soap must be placed in washing machine prior to closing lid and pressing start. Once that lid is closed it does not unlock until wash is done.

Laundry DO

Before popping your clothes in the washing machine, always check the care labels for washing guidelines. These will give you instructions on the appropriate wash cycle and temperature to set.


Laundry Do's and Don't

Separating clothes by colour will help to prevent any colour run disasters so divide your weekly washes into four piles: whites, lights, darks, and delicates. Once you’ve got enough of one pile to put it in the machine, check the garments for stains. Pre-treat these with a little stain remover before placing in the washer to avoid having to re-wash later.


Laundry tip #10

Who has time to iron? Use a fabric softener or dryer sheet to help reduce fabric wrinkles and select the lowest dryer temperature setting possible that will still get the job done. Always remove clothing from the dryer as quickly as possible when they're dry and immediately fold or hang them. But if needed you can always leave them with us and will take care of the ironing!


Tip #9

To make bras and delicate undergarments hold their shape and last longer, wash them by hand in a sink filled with cool water. If you want to use the washer, toss bras in a mesh lingerie bag and use the delicate cycle


16th Street will be closed between Court and Market Street on Friday, August 12, 2022 for a street repair project. Please find an alternate route.


Laundry tip #8

When whites start going gray or yellow, it could be because you are using water temperatures that are too low. You may be overloading your washer and piling in really dirty clothes that cause dirt to resettle on mildly soiled clothes making them dull.


Or it could still be at the laundromat in the lost and found!



Not sure who needs to read this..🤣🤣

We're in trouble


Laundry tip #7

The reasons clothes shrink and stretch are varied from fiber content and type of weave to how you wash or clean them.

Some of the best ways to avoid shrinking or stretching in clothing are to use a cold water setting, avoid too much agitation, and a hot clothes dryer.


Laundry tip

Clothes are expensive and fading can cause them to look worn out very quickly. By turning dark-colored clothes inside out before washing you can avoid abrasion and wear to fabric surfaced that cause dull appearances. Know how to keep black clothes black to protect your clothing investment.


Saving this for later!


Good morning! Our apologies for not being open. An attendant is on the way. Sorry for the inconvenience!


Laundry tip

No one wants the surprise of pink underwear or a tie-dyed effect on a white shirt. In other words, always sort your clothes correctly to prevent colors from bleeding onto unsuspecting fabrics.

To find out if something is colorfast before you wash it, wet a cotton swab and rub it on an inside corner or seam and see if the dye transfers to the swab. If it does, hand wash the item separately.

If that random red sock falls into a white load of clothes, know how to remove the dye stains.


Laundry tip #4

The key to successful stain removal is to act quickly.

As soon as possible after stains occur, rinse or soak the garment in cold water, apply a stain remover, and get it into the washer.

If the stain is still there, never put the garment in the dryer. Use a stain remover and rewash. Be sure to use the right stain removal technique for each type of stain.


Laundry tip #3

One of the biggest laundry mistakes is using too much detergent. Overdosing detergent can create so many suds that they trap soil allowing it to redeposit on clothes. Try using one-half less than the recommended amount and see if you are pleased with the results. Your clothes will look better and you'll save money.

If you have a front load washer that smells terrible, using less detergent may just solve your problem.


Laundry tip #2

When it's time to choose a detergent, shoppers often buy the one their parents used or grab the one that's cheapest. There are much better ways to select a detergent to meet your laundry needs.

Powdered detergents work well for general loads and are usually less expensive; however, they don't always dissolve correctly in cold water and leave white residue on fabrics.

Liquid detergents, which usually contain enzymes, are good for pretreating stains. The key to selecting a liquid detergent that fits your needs is to read a full list of ingredients. More enzymes in the formula equal better cleaning power.

What about the single dose pods, packs, and tablets? They are convenient and easy to use. They prevent overdosing but check the price per load if you're on a budget.


Laundry tip

Selecting the right water temperature for each specific laundry load is the key to success. Cold water works well for delicate fabrics, items that might shrink, and sensitive dark colors that tend to bleed. Cold water also saves you money by reducing the cost of utilities.

Warm water is appropriate for moderately soiled clothing and human-made fabrics.

Hot water should be used for bedding and towels, cotton whites, and heavily stained work clothes, specifically those with oil or grease stains.
