Question: I washed a red shirt with a pair of tan cotton pants. Now I have pink splotches on my tan pants. How can I get this out?
Question: I work in a 400 room business resort hotel in southern Malaysia. We receive outside laundry from the Roman Spa Center to wash at our laundry. The towels are both 100% cotton, and are from the same manufacturer. After a few months of washing, the Roman Spa towels have turned from white to yellow, but the hotel towels are still white (we are using the same wash and chemical programs for both sets of towels). The Roman Spa towels are also starting to become loose and tear. What is the cause of this and how can we correct it?
