At Renaissance Place Apartments we are pleased to provide a wonderful array of amenities for our apartment community, including in-apartment, full size washers and dryers. Gone are the days of driving all over Williamsville, NY looking for an open, clean, affordable laundromat for your laundry! Today we have some tips for making your laundry day go more smoothly.
We love Martha Stewart’s Tips for Perfect Laundry. We especially like Martha Stewart’s advice for getting rid of stubborn stains: “The best way to fix a stain is to treat it before it sets. Quickly scoop up solids with a dull edge, and blot liquids with a clean white cloth from the outside in to avoid spreading. Treat stains before washing, and always make sure stains have been removed before putting items in the dryer; heat sets stains into fabric.”
Another good idea when it comes to dealing with stains is to print out a basic stain removal guide and hang it by your washer; that way you will have the solution you need for stains where you need it when you need it.
Washing and Drying
Keep Socks Matched — use a mesh laundry bag for each member of the family; they fill the bag with their socks; wash, dry, return the bag to each person. No more lost socks! Find the tutorial for how to do this here.
Throw a dry towel into your dryer with wet laundry — it will absorb moisture and speed up the drying process.
To keep dark colors from fading, wash them inside out. Be sure to zip zippers and fasten buttons so they don’t catch during the washing or drying cycle.
Check out this informative article if you need to restore freshness and absorbency to your towels.
Go white — use all white towels for the bathroom, they can be washed as one load, and when necessary they can be bleached
We’re sure these tips will help residents of our apartment community have the whitest, brightest wash this side of the city. Thanks for reading today’s post.
