FOR WASHING

The fundamentals to remember for washing efficiency were put together by Dr Hubert Sinner in 1959. Indeed four factors (Temperature, Time, Chemistry, and Mechanical Action) play a decisive role in every wash cycle. Those like time or Chemistry are set by our engineers; however you can play somehow with mechanical action and certainly with temperature.

Mechanical action. The load factor of your drum will affect directly mechanical action. During the wash cycle your clothes are lifted by the baffles and fall down. If your drum if over loaded, this lift/fall motion will be affected.

Temperature. With Revolution Washers you have the choice of different temperatures between cold water (usually 15°C) and hot water (80°C). You may select water temperature with a lot of cautious, if hotter is the temperature better is the result, not all of your fabrics may stand these extreme temperatures.

You should always refer to the washing label of your clothe and set the washing temperature accordingly. In case of mixed clothes with different fabrics, you should set the temperature on the lowest.

As a general guidance, coloured cotton can usually go up to 40°C without problem. Warm Hot water is more likely to be used with White textiles. Hot is surely dedicated to very strong fabrics that require an extra level of decontamination like wipers, mop or rags.

For Duvet or Pillow, this would be generally up to 60°C. Though, refer to your product label to select the right temperature.

In case of any doubt and especially when washing colour for the first time, cold wash (tap water temperature) must be preferred. This will protect your fabrics and you from colour bleeding in most of the case.

Side note, a colour bleeding test is always good to do before washing something for the first time. Take a white wiping rag and rub it on a hidden part of the fabric. If you see some colour, wash it separately the first time.

Note some clothes labelled as hand wash only should not be washed into our washer as our machines do not provide specific cycles for this.

At last, in case of heavy specific stains like grease, wine, grass… use specific stain remover sprays and pre-spot the soiled area before washing.

To conclude, the more soiled clothes you have, the little must be the load factor. Do not hesitate to pre-spot heavy stains with an appropriate stain removal. Likewise, do not overload your washer as it may affect your result. And in case you have delicate items you want to protect, do not hesitate to place them into a net.

In any case, always follow wash labels instruction with attention.


FOR DRYING

Our professional dryers offer record performance compared with other dryers you may find at home and in some other laundromat. You may achieve your drying in 30 min compared to the usual 90 min at best with other dryers.

This result is achieved because two main factors. Firstly we offer bigger drum capacities that permit your load to tumble efficiently in the dryer. Secondly, the heat generated is massive as our dryers are very powerful.

First of all before drying anything, you have to make sure drying is not forbidden on the label of your clothe.

With Revolution Dryers you have the choice of different drying temperatures from delicate to Super-Hot. You may select water temperature with a lot of caution, if hotter is the temperature shorter is the drying time, not all of your fabrics may stand these extreme temperatures. Super-Hot drying temperature has to be used it with a lot of cautiousness. Indeed, mixed or synthetic fibres should not be dried with high temperatures. If you do so, you may damage the fabric.

You should always refer to the washing label of your clothe and set the washing temperature accordingly. In case of mixed clothes with different fabrics, you should set the temperature on the lowest of the acceptable temperature.

In doubt, you can use Delicate or Low as drying temperature to protect your load.

During drying process, do not hesitate to open the door and check remaining moisture. When your load is made of mixed cotton items like polo shirts, pants, socks and underwear, your socks and underwear might be dry after 10 minutes only depending on your load. Do not hesitate to take them out before the end.
