Your job or a home project may leave concrete dust on your clothing. This is a guide about washing clothes with concrete dust on them.
My son-in-law works construction, he works with concrete. My daughter can't seem to find a way to get his clothes clean. She says his work clothes hold the concrete dust even after they are washed. She has tried shaking them outside before washing and using an extra rinse in the wash with no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions?
you might try adding a lot of vinegar? i've never washed concrete on clothes but i use vinegar to remove mineral stone build up on many surfaces and it works great.
My husband is a construction worker and what works for me is beating out all the dust/rocks first, then I just put in the washing machine. (I don't wash them with anything that I think is important) :)
Anyway, I wash with regular laundry soap and baking soda, then use vinegar in the rinse. Perfectly clean clothes every time!
I'm actually reading to find out what works. I feel so embarrassed about my husband's clothing, because he goes to work looking like his clothes are dirty even though there clean, really clean. I soak them right away and then put them in the washer and it doesn't seem to work at all. I guess I'll try the vinegar and baking soda. I hope that works.
Make sure you clean machine regularly. .put vinegar & bicarb & run on cleaning cycle or hot cycle..No fabric softener as it builds up in machine & pipes & hoses.
