How To Get Massage Oil Out Of Sheets

Are you tired of throwing out sheets because they’re dreadfully stained by massage oil? Have you ever had your massage sheets smoking after they came out of the dryer? I know how you feel because I’ve been there! Over the years if I added up all the sets of massage sheets that I’ve thrown out, there would be enough to supply a mid-size hotel. Not to mention the dryer fires! No kidding, one day driving home in my car, I started to cough from the smoke coming from the backseat of my car. Holy Cow, my sheets were on fire! At first, I blamed this on the high-temperature dryers at the laundromat but now I know better. If you’re sick and tired of running through massage sheets because they are ruined by oil stains and or burn marks from the dryer, here’s what I suggest:

If you are busy enough and you can cover the overhead, I recommend using a linen service. This is especially great because you don’t have to spend your time in a laundromat or have high utility bills from all the extra appliance use at home. Also, if the sheets get stained or ripped, it’s not your problem. The main drawback to this is that you need to have an actual office location. The linen services will not deliver to a home, they want to pick up and drop off at a business location. The other bummer is that you have to commit to a weekly delivery quota. This means that you have to pay for new sheets every week regardless of whether you used up your previous supply. May I suggest that if you still want to go this route, partner up with someone who already has an account with a linen service and then you can help to split the costs.

So, I tried the linen service through a friend that has an acupuncture clinic and that was fine. I wanted to get back to washing my own sheets so I wouldn’t have to bother my friend every time, I ran out of sheets. This time, I did some research to find out how to get the massage oil out of sheets and to stop ruining my sheets so I had to toss them out. There didn’t seem to be much information on the Internet on this subject so between trial and error and talking with friends, here’s what I came up with.

1. Start with fresh new sheets. I know it feels wasteful to throw out sheets, but if they look bad, that gives our clients a lousy impression. If you can’t bear to throw them out, then donate them somewhere. I buying recommend industry grade sheets. The ones that the hotels and hospitals and linen services use are typically T-180 sheets. I like to buy the ones that would be as close as you can get to the dimensions of twin sheets. They may seem stiff but the soften up faster than you think they will.

2. Before you use the sheets for the first time, wash them in hot water and dry them completely. They will be nice and soft when they come out of the dryer. After you use your sheets for the first time, this is when it’s crucial to follow the next instructions.

3. Wash all your sheets in hot water.

4. Wash only a maximum of 3 sets of sheets together at a time. You want your sheets to get clean so avoid stuffing your machine.

5. Add a towel in the wash with your sheets. I always set aside my light-colored bath towels and hand towels to throw in with my sheets. They do a nice job of scrubbing the oil from the sheets.

6. If they seem a little on the oily side, add 1 regular box of regular size baking soda. When I add baking soda, I usually like to add a small box of peroxide with it. The baking soda and peroxide make a great paste for cleaning and brightening.

7. Spot treat stains on sheets and let them sit for a while before throwing them in the wash. They can always go in the next load.

8. Alternate your laundry detergents, Just like shampoo build-up, I think the laundry soap needs to be rotated as well. Sometimes, I use laundry soap and sometimes, I use a dish soap with a degreaser.

9. Avoid letting your sheets sit with oil in them for too long. I’ve noticed that if I let my sheets sit too long before washing them, the oil is harder to get out because it’s become set. Also, be careful about letting dirty sheets be exposed to direct sunlight. If your sheets are sitting in direct sunlight, the sun will burn the oil and it will be set in your sheets. It will smell rancid and you will never be able to get it out.

10. Hang your sheets to dry. This will probably be unpopular with many people but it is what has saved me from throwing out any more sheets. You never want to put your massage sheets in the dryer because if you didn’t get the oil out the first time, you will set the oil in the sheets and it can cause future fires in your dryer. One day I was driving home to find my car filling up with smoke. As It turns out, my sheets were on fire in the back seat of my car. I hope this never happens to you! If you have a sheet that has dried but it isn’t looking as clean as you like, throw it in the next load of sheets with a cup of stain remover.

Again, this approach isn’t for everyone but if you prefer to wash your own sheets, this is how you can keep them in good shape for a long time. I hope this helps you in your quest to get the massage oil out of your sheets.

Mobile Massage Services Offer Therapy Anytime, Anywhere

For much of the past, getting a massage meant visiting a therapist at an office equipped with a massage table, oils and other specialized equipment. These days, mobile massage tables and other accessories have enabled massage therapists to perform their services at clients’ homes and offices. Here’s a look at the biggest advantages of mobile massage services for clients and therapists.

Lower Operating Costs

With the high rates involved in standard massage therapy, many clients are unable to spend as much time being massaged as they’d prefer. Overhead costs at an office can be tremendous, forcing massage therapists to charge higher rates in order to make a profit. Mobile massage reduces overhead costs dramatically, letting massage therapists perform their services for less and making massage affordable for more people than ever before.

Public Events

Since many mobile massage therapists are experienced at serving clients who are fully clothed, they’re able to provide their services at public events, such as industry conventions. Business conventions leave many professionals tired and stressed, eventually destroying their morale and productivity. With the services of a mobile massage therapist, the entire atmosphere of the convention can enhance with the individual improvements in mood and energy. In many cases, simply knowing that there will be massage offered at an event is added incentive for professionals to attend.

Less Time Involved

Receiving a massage at a therapist’s office involves making an appointment, driving to and from the office and waiting in a waiting room. Mobile massage eliminates this inconvenience, letting clients call massage therapists to their homes or offices and continue working in the meantime. As soon as the appointment is over, work or recreation can continue again without further interruption.

Workplace Productivity

Stressed employees can bring everybody down at work, resulting in the office getting less done as a team. Mobile message offers a simple, effective solution for this. By investing in a visit from a mobile massage service, employers can boost employee morale and enhance workflow at the office. This can also reduce stress for the manager, who can more easily concentrate on the big picture instead of handling issues among individual workers.

Reduce Worker Absenteeism

In recent years, preventative medical care such as massage has become more popular for improving immunity and reducing the risk of heart problems. Regular visits from mobile message services are very effective at reducing stress, which is a huge contributor to poor health. This way, workplaces can reduce absenteeism and frequent tardiness and postpone having to hire new workers due to disability among existing employees.

Many people find that the greatest benefit from message comes with regular treatments. With this in mind, many mobile massage services offer scheduling plans for regular therapy. Sometimes, discounts are available with these plans. Even single visits, however, are well worth the cost for preventative health care and peace of mind. Reduced pain, deeper sleep and better quality of life are all available from the comfort of home or the office with mobile massage services.

Weight loss and smoking are 2 things which can be helped enormously by Hypnosis, in addition to dietary advice and exercise, great results can be felt in only a few weeks, think how that would make you feel.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Therapy) and TfT (Thought field Therapy)

Although these therapies are similar to each other, TfT is more specific and is used to treat many common ailments and conditions such as fear, addictions, grief, panic, fatigue and eyesight to name but a few. The fact is that both of these interfere with the body`s magnetic field in a specific way there by causing changes in the body`s chemistry and change is effected that way, you don`t go into a trance, you are wide awake and its self administered too so you are always in control, you can choose how much or how little you do.

Electro acupuncture

A modern take on an ancient Chinese tool that’s been used for thousands of years to treat effectively many conditions and ailments but unlike traditional acupuncture, it`s non invasive, ie there is no penetration of the skin, instead it seeks out the body`s meridians and focuses on the specific acupuncture points and delivers a tiny electrical charge into the nerve, thereby causing a change to the nerve associated with that point and hence the therapy works and has exactly the same results, without the discomfort and the other risks that needles pose.
