1. Collect about 50 litres of distilled water from your air conditioner. Please never use well or borehole water as they contain varying degrees of iron. Iron commonly found in earth water can be one of the most troublesome elements in washing whites. As little as 0.3 ppm (parts per million) of iron can cause staining of fabrics, sinks, flooring, & also most anything else it comes into contact with.
2. Depending on the weight of your laundry pour some of your collected a/c water into a pot for heating and then mix in a plastic or aluminum bowl with a good quality detergent containing enzymes for whites.
3. Unbutton all of the buttons, including cuff buttons and any collar buttons. Remove any collar stays if it has them and put them in a safe place.
4. Pre-treat any stains by carefully working a little detergent into them, or better yet spot-cleaning them with a stain remover pen.
5. Soak them for about 2 hours before washing. If the shirt is particularly dirty you may opt for a second wash. A. Whites and light colors can use hot water. B. Take care not to include other laundry items with bold colors that may bleed into your laundry.
6. Rinse with lavish amounts of distilled a/c water in a plastic bowl twice.
7. Wring out the water carefully without damaging the Sean's of your garments before hanging to dry under a shade preferably your bathroom over night so that they can air dry. Be careful about hanging the shirts on a sharp metal hanger as this can distort the fabric or leave rust marks on the shirt. 8. Next you’ll want to iron the shirts. You don’t need to wait for the shirts to be completely dry to begin this step, but they should be mostly dry.
