Why does the hotel linen turn yellow after washing? How can you solve this problem? - Hanbi Textile

The newly put into use hotel linen turns gray and yellow slowly, while the hotel linen used for a period of time turns gray and yellow quickly; Bed sheetsquilt covers and other hotel linen turn gray and yellow slowly, while towel fabrics turn gray and yellow quickly. In fact, this situation is also encountered in our usual washing process. When we wash clothes in our household washing machine or by hand, light colored clothes will turn yellow or black, which will become very ugly, which will also affect the mood of customers in the hotel and the grade of the hotel.

In fact, the yellowing of hotel linen is mainly due to the following reasons:

1. The water quality is hard

One reason for yellowing is that the washing water quality is hard, and the unsoftened water will contain a large number of organic and inorganic salts. These salts in ionic state include calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and manganese ions, which will deposit on the fabric and even enter the fiber during the washing process. With the increase of washing times, the deposition will be more and more. 

Thus, the hotel linen, especially the towel cloth grass, becomes gray and hard. If groundwater is used, the phenomenon will be more serious.

2.Rinsing is not clean

Poor detergent quality or low addition

This is one of the main reasons. The use of poor detergent can not completely wash clothes. In the long run, the accumulation of dirt and the residue of detergent will turn yellow. Therefore, not only professional detergent is needed, but also laundry workers need to master the amount, time and temperature of detergent.

Incomplete rinsing with water

When washing with a fully automatic industrial washing machine, there is a rinsing procedure after washing. If the amount of rinsing water is not enough or the rinsing time is too short, it will cause incomplete rinsing, and the washed dirt will be evenly attached to the washed fabric, which will also cause the fabric to turn yellow.

3.No dechlorination treatment was carried out after using chlorine containing bleach

Some textile mills will bleach with chlorine containing bleach, but if the dechlorination process is not carried out, the chlorine will remain on the fabric and cause the hotel linen to turn yellow.
