When it comes to the laundry, many of us tend to stick to washing clothing and linens. However, there are other household items that needs to be washed every so often. Rather than struggling with carpet cleaning machines, wash small rugs and carpets at the laundromat. Here’s what you need to know about washing non-clothing items at the laundromat.
Check the Material.
When it comes to washing non-clothing items, it’s important that you pay attention to the material that it’s made of. Different materials require different care and not all fabrics can be thrown into the washing machine. Pay attention to the fabric type and only wash it in a machine if able to do so.
Avoid Washing Valuable and Antique Pieces.
When it comes to caring for valuable and antique pieces, using the washing machine could damage the piece. Avoid any disasters and consult a professional to assist in cleaning such items.
Machine Approved Rugs.
When washing small, machine washable rugs, it’s important to take a few precautions. When washing these items, it’s important that you check that they’re approved for washing machine use. Additionally, inspect the rug for any signs of damage, particularly when it comes to the rug’s rubber backing. If there’s any flaking, the flaking can damage the washing machine. Once you’ve determined that the rug is in good condition and that it’s the right size and material to wash in the machine, use cold water, mild detergent, and the gentle cycle. That way you’re best able to clean your rug. When it comes to drying your rug, it’s best to let it air dry.
