Covid-19 UPDATE

Our "Clean Team"

Ellie's Spin n' Wash Action Plan

At Ellie's Spin n' Wash, our team is up and running and safe – and ready to do our part to guide you through this uncertain time from a laundry perspective. 

Wash & Dry Temperatures

It is recommended that all wash cycles are HOT.  Our hot water heater is set for 127 degrees.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a temperature above 167 degrees Fahrenheit or 75 degrees Celsius is sufficient to kill influenza viruses. This temperature is often cited as lethal against viruses in general. Our "Hot" setting on our dryers is 180 degrees. This is hot enough to kill viruses that may linger on your clothes after a hot water wash.

What Can We Do For You?

  • Ellie's Spin n' Wash team members continuously wipe down and sanitize our surfaces throughout the day. 
  • We have pick up & drop off service available.
  • We can deliver your order to your home for an additional fee.

What Can You Do?

  • To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, if you are feeling sick, we ask that you stay home. 
  • Limit the number of people coming with to do your chores. Assign a single member of your household, if possible.
  • The elderly should stay at home if possible.
  • If you don't want to come in, CALL US! We will do your laundry for you! Call us to arrange for pick up and drop off service. 847-263-3834.
  • Stay well; this will pass.
