Free independent schools resources

We’ve put together some handy resources to help you run or set up a boarding school laundry.

If you are considering setting up or modifying your laundry, our laundry room layout resource offers advice on the main factors you need to take into account. If you already have a  boarding school laundry in place, our  chemical resource will help you determine the optimum laundry detergents you need. This is supported by a Buyer’s Guide, which gives you an overview of the things to consider if you update your school laundry.

There are also resources to support the day-to-day running of your laundry including how to care for fabrics as well as helpful tips on how to ensure maximum cost and usage efficiency in your laundry.


We pride ourselves on the quality of our laundry and are so glad to have found a commercial laundry partner that understands and supports this. I cannot fault WASHCO's service; nothing was over promised and under delivered.
