Series Summary

Since the dawn of time, men and women alike have preferred clean clothing over dirty clothing. Cave drawings uncovered in the Mesopotamian Desert wilderness show women heating rocks and rubbing them on fur clothing. Dirty clothing was actually an offense punishable by death in The Code of Hammurabi. A recent archaeological discovery has uncovered the oldest laundromat in recorded history while excavating the ancient city of Ur. Cleverly named Laund-UR-mat, this laundromat, actually started by Abraham's youngest brother Ephraham, is historical proof that even thousands and thousands of years ago, human beings found washing clothes inconvenient and tedious and that people would rather outsource laundry than take the time to do it at home. Fortunately, there is help for those of us that turn white shirts into pink ones and ruin blouses. In this free laundry washing video series, professional cleaner Ginger Walker teaches the proper way to wash just about anything. Walker handles washing hats, blue jeans, silk, men's dress shirts and more. She also offers tips for acid washing jeans, washing clothes with baking soda, doing laundry by hand and whitening without bleach. Walker uses her experience owning a cleaning company to offer tips on storing clothes as well.
