Is there anything you won’t wash?
Use your best judgment. As a rule of thumb, if it’s an item you usually dryclean or hand wash at home, then it’s not going to be a good fit for our wash & fold laundry service. You can put that item in your orange, teal or blue route bag, and we will clean it accordingly.
How is shirt laundry different from this laundry?
“Shirt laundry” refers specifically to men’s and women’s cotton (or cotton blend) collared, button-down-front, button-cuff shirts, like those you wear alone or with a suit, or maybe with a tie.
Professionally processed shirt laundry does not go into a clothes dryer, so it should always be turned in with drycleaning and not Wash & Fold laundry.
For nicer shirts that need pressing and other items that require special care, you’ll get the best results with our shirt laundry or drycleaning service.
Do I need to bring mesh laundry bags?
No, Admiral Cleaners has you covered. We have mesh laundry bags that we’ll use as needed to protect your items from anything with a velcro opening, hook-and-eye clasp fasteners, or any other types of closures that might harm the other things in your load.
What kind of detergent and fabric softeners do you use?
Admiral Cleaners uses the best available hypoallergenic products.
What if I need to wash a brand new item that might bleed?
Admiral Cleaners always sorts and washes loads by color. If you have concerns about a particular item, we recommend washing it by itself at home before sending it to us.
