the Delken® Easy Card ™
Checkout the convenience and intelligence built
into the Delken® Easy Card that we are using in most of our
stores right now! The Delken® Easy Card™ makes your trips
to Delken® Laundromats more convenient than they already are!
It is no longer necessary to spend hours accumulating coins or
hauling pounds of change with you to the Laundromat.
The Delken® Easy Card™ is
a computerized system
that uses a small magnetic stripped "debit" card to replace coins
in laundromats. Delken® is now using these convenient new cards
at most locations, and they are getting a wonderful response from
When you come into one of our stores that is using the Delken® Easy
Card™, it's very simple to get one!
|To receive a Delken® Easy Card™:
1. The customer first inserts dollar bills ($1, $5, $10 or
$20) up to a maximum balance of $99.99 which is added onto
a Delken® Easy Card™.
2. The Acceptor/Dispenser displays the amount that was inserted.
3. With the push of a button, the dispenser issues your Delken® Easy
Card™ which is encoded with an account number that
correlates with the account information in the central computer.
The balance of that account number can be checked at any time
by reinserting the card into the Acceptor/Dispenser. Once the
card is inserted, more value can be added to the same card
by inserting more money.

Doing Your Laundry!
Before you wash:
Inspect your clothes!
If you don't want to end up with pink
underwear then it is always a good idea to SORT your clothes before
washing. Separate dark fabrics from white or light colored ones.
Fabrics requiring different water temperatures should be cleaned
in separate loads. Heavily soiled garments may need to be done
in a separate load. Items that will shed lint should not be washed
with items that may collect lint.
CHECK YOUR POCKETS! Remove any pens, tissue, or other items
that may damage your clothes. This is one of the most important
things you can do so don't be lazy about checking. It is well
worth the time it takes to save a load of laundry. You may even
find some extra cash you forgot about!
At the laundry:
Too much soap or too many clothes
means inefficient washing!
Most Delken® locations now use
the "Easycard" system
eliminating the need of carrying rolls of quarters. These machines
accept bills in all denominations saving you a trip to the bank
to buy change. We provide you an "Easycard" on your first visit
for a very small fee!
Get everything ready before you start the machine. Your clothes
should be prepped, sorted, soap ready, pockets checked, before
you load your machines. Front loading machines lock once they are
started and will be inaccessible until their cycle completes.
Always look in the machine you plan to use before you load it!
You never know what may have been left behind by the previous user.
As with anything, it is always best to plan ahead. Don't overload
machines or use too much soap. Either may result in having to separate
and re-wash your clothes in smaller amounts wasting both your time
Don't overload your dryers!
Overloading dryers can result in longer
drying time. You should separate clothes for drying in the same manner
as separating for washing. Be sure to check dryers before placing
your clothes inside. The last user may have left something behind
that could possibly damage your clothes. Clean out the dryer's lint
screen if possible. This can increase the units air flow and result
in faster drying time.
Last But Not Least:
Remove clothes as soon as possible!
Be there when your machines stop! Once
your clothes are dry remove them as soon as possible. This will keep
them looking better and minimize wrinkles. Hang items that wrinkle
easily such as blouses, dress shirts, etc. Knits are often best folded provided
you have the drawer space at home. It is always best to match your
socks at the laundry. This allows you to check the machines you had
used in case you may have missed something. They tend to get caught
inside other items so be sure to check them well. Contrary to popular
belief, washers and dryers do not eat socks so if you don't have
them when you are folding then they probably never made it there
in the first place.
