Hotel and catering trade laundry

Textile care in the hotel and catering trade is important!

Bed and table linen, terrycloth, kitchen towels, clothing for cooks or for kitchen, service and hotel personnel – each type of fabric has its particularities and requires special treatment. Also, the laundry that is held ready represents a substantial asset. Washing procedures that combine hygiene and cleanliness with material protection offer a double benefit: Customer satisfaction and conservation of the laundry’s value.


In hotels, restaurants, canteens and catering businesses, the demand on hygiene, quality, safety and cost reduction is steadily increasing. Today’s hotel and restaurant guests expect a harmonious ambience and an appealing overall concept. They also have high expectations on the textiles that they are surrounded by and wish a clean, inviting bathroom as well as well-cared, functional terry towelling. The restaurant should have stylish table linen and immaculate serviettes.

These requirements are fully met by our detergents and procedures that have been customized for this trade. They ensure the reliable removal of dirt from the textiles used in the different areas of the hospitality industry, including heavily stained kitchen linen. Frying fat, oil and sauce stains, albumin and red wine, lipstick, make-up and even shoe polish are washed out of cotton and mixed fibers without any residues while the material is protected, and in the rinsing bath, our finishing agents give the final touch.
