Child care and early learning
COMMERCIAL WASHERS & DRYERS IDEAL FOR CHILD CARE CENTRES
Smocks, Hand Towels, Face Washers, Sheets and bedding will be the major laundry component in any Child Care setting.
These days your business may see very different volumes and have time limitations in running an effective in-house laundry.
Child Care Centres benefit from Commercial Touch Control Washers and Dryers, where these units can be continuously processing smaller loads throughout the day.
One of the most important steps in reducing the number of germs (micro-organisms such as bacteria, viruses and protozoa) in a childcare setting, is the use of hygienic laundry solutions. If your center requires this then consider the Industrial 3 phase heat washer solution. As used in Aged Care facilities to stop the spread of disease.

HINTS FOR GREEN CLEANING OPTIONS:
The use of home-remedy or natural cleaners is also gaining interest but again there are questions over their effectiveness and appropriateness.
Research findings into some of these products have found: Vinegar (an acid) has disinfecting properties against some bacteria but not all. It has poor soil removal abilities and may congeal protein on the surface.
Eucalyptus and Tea Tree Oils are beneficial to health in small amounts (2-5 drops) but are poisonous in concentrated form and likely to be toxic to aquatic life in large amounts.
Eucalyptus oil is an effective solvent but too harsh for cleaning general soiling from surfaces, especially plastic surfaces.
Natural Citrus Bases (e.g. orange oils) are quite toxic in their pure form.
Neither vinegar nor essential oils are registered as disinfectants which mean there is no verifiable or accurate information about dosage and contact time to achieve disinfection, nor which type of germs they are effective against.
Borax (strongly alkaline) has very poor disinfection qualities but effective soil removal ability. It is poisonous and damages soil in large amounts.
Baking soda (alkaline) is a good scourer and deodoriser.
Mixing vinegar and baking soda together neutralises the properties of the separate products and is less effective overall.
Selecting the correct (Hottest) temperature for the wash load, and using a high quality detergent on a long wash may well attend to your centers needs.
