Question: I manage a home care agency and we need to teach our employees how to do laundry for our clients. They put sheets, towels, sweaters, etc. in the same load.
We need to have a program in place to introduce to our employees, and to test their competency before they do someone else’s laundry. Most of our clients are older adults with a fixed income.
I also need to know the most economical detergent they can use that will still do the job of getting their clothes and linens clean.

A customized wall chart could be made for each employee so as not to forget how the wash should be done.
I can’t recommend any brand names of detergents, but can say that I am a proponent of proportioning. There are a number of companies that have liquid or solid dispensing systems that provide controlled usage of the chemicals. Controlling the amount of chemical is very important, particularly when there are cost concerns.
