Question: My white bathroom towels have a lot of yellow stains that I’ve been unable to remove. Increasing the chemical dosage did not help. The stains are from guest’s lotion.

Question:I have a client who uses sunflower oil for their spas treatments so most of their sheets (cotton/polyester) are soiled with the oil. Is there a product that would eliminate the oil from the sheets or is there a special way to wash them? When the sheets are drying, leftover oil seems to cook at the dryer’s high temperature leaving the sheets with a yellowish stain and unpleasant odor.

Question: dryer, badly staining the entire load of laundry?
Question: I'd like to have some advice on a staining problem I'm having. The stains are on OR GREENS (operating rooms, green sheets) they look to be greasy looking stains. Anyone had a similar type of problem and found a fix, either with the wash program and/or chemicals?

Laundry to Reduce Air Emmissions and Fund Cleaner Burning Wood Stove Purchases
BOSTON, Mass. — Alltex Uniform Rental Service, an industrial laundry in Manchester, N.H. has agreed to settle claims by the US Environmental Protection Agency that it violated the Clean Air Act by paying a civil penalty of $65,000. They will also be undertaking a Supplemental Environmental Project with a value of at least $220,000 to replace old, polluting wood stoves in southern New Hampshire with new, cleaner models. Additionally, the company will install equipment at its facility to remove approximately 20 tons per year of emissions of volatile organic compounds (“VOCs”). G&K Services is the parent company of Alltex Uniform Rental Service Inc. The EPA action grew out of an EPA inspection of the facility in July 2008.
