Reduce Dry Time.

The cold discourages most folks from hanging laundry outside to dry this time of year (the best way to reduce energy use in clothes drying), but energy savings can still be had at Clean Bee Laundry.
In general, commercial washing machines extract far more of the wash water than household washers. This is why commercial machines tend to be bolted to the floor. Our triple load Wascomat commercial washers are programmed with an extra-extract option. By selecting this, your clothes will spin out for a few extra minutes at a very high speed to remove even more moisture from your laundry. The end result is an overall reduction dry time.
If you are going to dry your clothing at Clean Bee, find a warm dryer. The residual heat will allow your clothing to dry faster and use less energy than heating up a cold dryer. Plus, you’ll save money by using less drying time. Be sure to put enough clothes in the dryer but do not overload it. Dryers work most efficiently when filled to the right capacity.
Use Wooly Rounds – Toss Wooly Rounds into the dryer with your wet laundry to naturally soften clothes and help reduce drying time. What’s are Wooly Rounds? They are handmade felted wool dryer rounds made in Maine from wool sourced from a historic Maine mill. By using 4 rounds in medium loads and 6 in large loads, you will reduce static and drying time. Wooly Rounds are available for purchase at both Clean Bee locations.
