Enzymes working for you?

Are you using enzymes at home as an alternative to heavy-duty chemicals to clean clothes and linens? Read the directions carefully – most enzymes require a specific temperature to work – too cold and they don’t do the job, to hot and they are destroyed and won’t clean. If you don’t have the ability to clean green at home, call us. We’re dedicated to helping keep the environment clean.

Oxy moron?

Have you made the switch to oxygen-bleach products yet? You may think conventional chlorine bleach is whitening, but if the water is not hot enough, the bleach is only weakening fibers. Old-fashion bleach requires substantial heat to activate and brighten—the new oxy products work even in cold water and get your whites bright without leaving chlorine smell and holes behind. Save bleach for disinfecting around the house, and switch to a more earth-friendly way to brighten all your laundry.

Setting a fresh table.

Don’t stash table linens back in the drawer for next time; bring them to us right away. Oil and grease, the most common stains on napkins and table linens, are the hardest to remove. Waiting lets them soak into the material, causes the stains to set, and can become very difficult to remove. Bring them in and we’ll remove all traces of the last meal so you can start fresh for your next dinner without unsightly stains.
