I find that when I move seniors it helps to wash their clothes and linens prior to moving. If clothing calls for hand washing. I find this can be done on the delicate cycle of the washing machine. To protect the clothing and the seniors skin. I do the following:
1 Use a gentle detergent, such as for babies or woolite.
2 Turn clothes inside out.
3 Protect lingerie and hosiery in a mesh bag or for the frugal a pillow case tied up with a ribbon.
4 Make sure any zippers are done up.
5 Shake out gently and hang to dry.
When the senior moves everything is fresh. It works for everyone.
