Success in work or school means you don’t have time to sweat the small stuff, and taking care of your laundry is just one of those things that is often best left up to the professionals. We here at Pearl Street Laundry are more than happy to take that responsibility off of your hands by providing Cambridge laundry service you can depend on. However, there are some ways that you can make your wash-dry-fold experience with us even better.
Pretreat or Prewash Stains
The only thing worse than a wine stain is a wine stain that has been left to sit overnight without any treatment. For the most effective measure, we here at Pearl Street Laundry recommend Wine Away for red wine stains. For everything else, we generally turn to OxiClean Max Force or homemade solutions consisting of everything from vinegar to baking soda depending on the type of stain. While on the go carry either Shout’s Wipe and Go, or Tide To Go Stain Removing Pen. By treating stains as soon as they happen, last night’s dinner won’t be able to fully seep into your nice white dress shirt or blouse, allowing us to come in later and fully eliminate any sign of blemish from your clothing. For more specific stain treating measures ranging from blood stains to grease stains check out our other blog posts.
Right Side Out, Unrolled, Unbuttoned
While we here at Cambridge’s best wash-dry-fold service pride ourselves on our attention to detail, you can help out and make sure that your clothes get the speediest and best wash possible. By simply ensuring that all clothes are right-way out, that your socks are unfurled, and that all dress shirts are fully unbuttoned, it improves the quality of our laundry service. It also gives you a chance to check your pockets, look for stains to point out to us, and check clothing tags.
Always check your pockets
Anyone who has ever lost an important bauble, washed a leaky pen, or even had the washer tear to shreds a pocketed hundred dollar bill will immediately realize the importance of this crucial advice. Whether you are planning to use our coin-operated washers and dryers yourself or are looking for professional wash-dry-fold laundry service or dry cleaning, be sure not to skip this step. We’ve found everything from loose change to melted credit cards in dryers and we want to help you avoid a bad day.
Read Clothing Tags
Quality clothing comes with quite a few caveats and instructions regarding long-term care, and you may find it very helpful to thoroughly read the tags. While some garments must be dry-cleaned, others have very specific rules regarding how they can be laundered. Some of these should not be included in your wash-dry-fold basket but kept aside for special treatment, which brings us to our next point.
Let Us Know!
While we provide some of the best laundry service in Cambridge, we work better when we have the most information possible and know what our valued customers want. That means don’t be shy about pointing things out to us, whether they be stains, important instructions, or even personal preferences regarding your clothes. Whatever it is, make sure you let our associate know so that we can provide the best service possible.
We look forward to seeing you (and your dirty laundry) soon at Pearl Street Laundry!
