Fun Fact Friday: Space Laundry
Happy Friday, Sea Spray Dry Cleaning fans! For this week's edition of Fun Fact Friday, we thought we would up the scale, and bring you a fact that is literally out of this world. Did you know that there is no way for astronauts to wash their laundry in space? With no washing machine on board the space station, astronauts have to find other creative uses for their dirty laundry. For example, they will sometimes use their dirty underwear as a planter for experiments, partly because it serves as a convenient container, and partly because there's a good amount of bacteria on them which will feed the plant (they only change their underwear every 3-4 days up there). If there's no room for planters, they'll just jettison the clothes out of the space station and let them fall back down to Earth. The clothes will burn up in the atmosphere, freeing both the space station and the setting around it from cluttered laundry. Now, down on Earth, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that clothes can be washed and worn again, and we make that extremely easy. Just give us a call, throw all your dirty clothes into a laundry bag, and we'll come by to pick it up--you don't even have to be there! In no time, our van will come back with all of your clothes cleaned, pressed, and folded. To schedule your laundry pick up, give us a call today!
