HANDLE WITH CARE
While it may be obvious that the
chemical formula of laundry products
and the water temperature used in the
wash cycle contribute to the effectiveness
of the laundry process, a third variable
is the water itself, says Adam Pearle,
general manager of A1 Tablecloth Co.
"Water can be different in terms of
hardness or what is in the water," Pearle
says. "Each environment is a little bit
different, but for the most part each
chemical company's representative
should be aware of how to set up a
laundry or a formula based on the
environment of each customer."
Based in South Hackensack, N.J.,
A1 Tablecloth is a linen manufacturer
that both sells and rents linens. The
company has industrial laundry
equipment that can wash more than
2,000 pounds of fabric per hour, Pearle
says. Rental customers return dirty
linens in duf le bags supplied by A1.

"Once they come back, we sort
the linens by classi ication, whether
it be size, color, fabric, or so forth,
and then wash them accordingly in
different formulas depending upon the
classi ication. If it's done by weight,
everything is carefully weighed, and once
it meets the weight for that classi ication,
it goes to the washing machine. Then it
goes to an iron where it gets pressed, and
it gets inspected again on the backside of
the iron to see if there are any defects."
If defects are found, the piece is
rejected, with a notation about why
and if it can be repaired. In the case
of a stain, it gets classi ied by the type
of stain and treated immediately.
"We might treat it with the degreaser,
and then it goes into a rewash formula,
which is just a little bit stronger
chemicals and more time," Pearle says.
"We inspect again after that's done, and
if it doesn't come clean after that it goes
into what is called a 'reclaim,' which is
