Taking Care – Washing Clothing & Linens for Seniors

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.
