7 Must-Try Airbnb Laundry Hacks for Busy Cleaners: Get More Done in Less Time

Written By

Airbnb cleaners know how important it is to keep linens clean and fresh for guests. But laundry can be a tedious and time-consuming task. That's why we've compiled a list of Airbnb laundry hacks to make your job easier and more efficient.

In this article, you’ll learn how to clean Airbnb laundry quickly and even get tips on makeup stain removal from towels and wash clothes. As experts in turnover cleaning, these are our tried-and-true hacks for ensuring the Airbnb hosts we clean for keep getting good reviews.

6 Tested-and-trusted Airbnb laundry hacks we swear by!

1. Rapid wash on hot with bleach for white linen

Most Airbnb hosts use white linen and sheets in their houses because they have a lot of advantages, like making the rental look cleaner and more sophisticated. However, with white linen, you have to ensure you’re cleaning them quickly and effectively before the next guest arrives.

Say goodbye to dingy, yellowed linens with this quick and easy laundry hack! When washing white linen for your Airbnb turnover cleanings, opt for a 30-minute rapid cycle wash on hot with OxiClean bleach. This powerful combination of heat, fast agitation, and deep-cleaning bleach will have your linens looking bright and fresh in no time. 

If you have time, scoop some OxiClean and detergent into the washer with the linens, then soak for an hour before washing with a rapid/quick cycle on hot. But if you’re in much rush, you can use the OxiClean Max Force spray on the linen, soak it for a few minutes, then wash. Don’t overstuff the machine to ensure all the fabrics are cleaned thoroughly.

2. Use Oxiclean Max Force for stain removal

Makeup stains, juice, and wine spills… these are the major cleaning concerns regarding Airbnb laundry. But we’ve got the best laundry hack for it. Simply apply a generous amount of OxiClean Max Force Spray to the stained area and let it sit for a few minutes. Afterward, follow the washing instructions above.

If you need more brightening, pour a quarter or half a cup of white vinegar into your wash load. Vinegar acts as a natural fabric softener too, so win-win.

3. Get a lint roller for hair removal

The problem of hair or lint on linen is an absolute nightmare for most Airbnb hosts, and it’s our job as the cleaning team to get rid of it. After washing, we recommend you use a lint roller or shake out the fabrics twice or thrice to remove any hair still clinging to it. 

Drying one load should take about 45 minutes, after which we advise you to use the lint roller or shake the linen again for good measure.

4. Do your Airbnb laundry on-site

Unbelievably, this is a more time-saving option than going to a laundromat. By doing your laundry on-site, you'll be able to quickly and easily wash and dry linens, towels, and bedding without having to waste time transporting them elsewhere. This will not only save you valuable time but will also allow you to ensure that the linens are properly cleaned and maintained to the highest standards.

But if you want to use a laundromat, always go to local mom-and-pop laundromats in your area. They cost a little more than larger wash-and-fold laundromats, but they would pay more attention to the quality of the clean. Also, they could offer you discounted rates if you partner with them. 

5. Airbnb hosts should have at least three extra sets of linen

Three, because you can never be too careful. Clean linen in an Airbnb is necessary; you should always have access to extra sets in case of unexpected circumstances. Not only will this allow you to quickly and efficiently turn over your client’s space between guests, but it will also give the host’s guests peace of mind knowing they have access to fresh linens throughout their stay. 

On that note, not every Airbnb must give guests access to extra sets of linen. Leaving out a fresh set for guests is OK for rentals with two or fewer bedrooms. But for larger houses requiring more extra linen, it’s not very advisable because of possible misuse. Instead, we recommend a locked maid closet that only the host and cleaning team can access.

6. Always take before and after pictures

We cannot stress this enough. It demonstrates your commitment to quality and professionalism as an Airbnb cleaner and provides an added layer of protection for the host in case of any disputes. Hosts can confidently show their guests that the space was left in top-notch condition by having photographic evidence of the space before and after cleaning. Plus, it can help identify potential improvement areas in the cleaning process.
