Shake out laundry to ensure that all debris is removed. Load laundry washing machines to full, ensure that items are of approximate equal weight (for example, thick heavy blankets should be washed by themselves or with another thick heavy blanket). Add appropriate amount of detergent, bleach and start machine. When the cycle finishes , move to the dryer and start cycle. NOTE: surgery drapes (blue/blue green) MUST be washed separately from towels, blankets and other items. Once items are dry, fold towels by rolling them, smaller items and blankets can be folded in squares. Surgery drapes should be folded as instructed (rectangle for pack wraps and fan fold for drapes with a hole).
