What is Laundry?

The fundamental difference between Dry Cleaning and Laundry and Laundry is water. Laundry uses water while dry cleaning does not. Laundry processes include washing (usually with water containing detergents or other chemicals), soaking, agitation, rinsing, drying, pressing (ironing), and folding.
On the other hand, laundry uses no harmful chemicals and it is free from chemical odors. For more information about the differences between these two washing ways, you can read Here. In London Dry Cleaning Company, we do laundry in some essential steps.


5 fundamental laundry steps


1-Reading labels

At first, we check your item’s care label to know whether or not an item can be machine washed. Also, most of the fabric has properties to determine their reaction to heat, water, and cleaning solvent. So according to the special care of cotton, wool, or synthetic fabrics, our experts decide how to wash the clothes.

2- sorting

We sort the laundry by color, darks go together, whites go together and lights go together. Then, each pile gets its own load in the washer. In this step, our specialists sort each pile one more time by the type of fabric. For example, in the whites pile, separate towels, and sheets from apparel.
When we separate and wash by fabric, we can use different water temperature and it keeps drying cycle simple.

3-picking the detergent

We check out the list of our detergent to determine how much to use based on the size of the load. Before washing, if the clothes have stains, the experts will pre-treat them.

4-Setting the water temperature and cycle

Different types of clothes and items need different temperatures. For instance, underwear and bedsheets need hot water to remove body oil.

Also, we should choose the best washer cycle for the fabrics in the load. The “normal” cycle will be fine for most loads, but it may also need to use “permanent press” or “delicate” for certain fabrics. “Heavy-duty” is great for articles like jeans and towels.

5-Final checking

We double-check everything before the load of washer. It takes a bit of time but it will save us from any last-minute mistakes.

After loading the washer and then unloading it, they should be loaded in dryer. It’s important to dry all lightweight items together and all heavy fabric items together and choose the correct dryer temperature for each. This will help prevent shrinking and protect your clothing. After the clothes had been washed, they were hung out to dry.


Now let’s see some advantages and disadvantages of laundry process:

  • No chemicals
  • Less expensive
  • Energy efficient, normally using up to 50% less energy than traditional dry cleaning.
  • May not get that stain off your shirt
  • Possibilities for shrinkage
