Using Your Washer and Dryer


In my health-based cleaning service I use alot of towels, along with microfiber cleaning cloths and mopping pads. And of course, they all need laundering.

If you’re hiring me for three days or more, you’ll need access to a washer and dryer at the cleaning site. Or pay a $15.00 added fee per my trip to a laundromat. I don’t have my own machines at this time. So that’s a big help!


Who runs the loads

Most of my customers do the honors.

If I have time to run a load before leaving for the day, I include that time in my hourly rates.


Please, only use laundry soap— a safe laundry soap.

Among many other ingredient specs, I look for the following:

  • Natural
  • Non-toxic
  • Plant-based
  • Fragrance-free
  • Complete ingredient list

And the safest products I’m aware of are the following:


And please, no dryer sheets or fabric softeners

Both are unnecessary. And dryer sheets:

  • Leave a residue that reduces the absorbance of cotton.
  • Ruin microfiber cleaning cloths.
  • Generally have poor health ratings, according to Environmental Working Group.

Got static cling? You’re likely laundering synthetic fabrics. Please use wool dryer balls to remedy the problem. Eco Nuts is a cool brand.
