Hi, my name is Sandy, and I'm with the Maids Home Services. I wanted to talk to you about how to wash your bedsheets, your bed linens. You would start with the color, of the linens,and if they are a color linen, you want to make sure that you look on your washing machine dial. They'll be a setting for colors, as there will be a setting for whites. Obviously, if you have white bed linens, you would make sure that you would apply the detergent, and some Clorox bleach, if you wish to bleach them. We have some light green bed linens, we've stripped from the bed. I like to make sure that they're pulled apart, and not in there in a wad. It gives them a chance to move around in the wash, and you want to make sure, however size your load is, that it's evened out. Pay attention to how the clothes are falling, the linens are falling in there, and even it out. Your detergents are literally just one cap full. We're going to turn the dial, and set this on colors, on a medium load, and it's going to go onto cold. Where mainly for the whites, you would make sure that those are on a warm or a hot setting, and that would be how you wash bed linens.
