2 Ways To Make Your Trip To The Laundromat Easier

Posted on

If you have to take your laundry to the laundromat because your washing machine is dead or you just don't have one, there are some things that you can do that will make your trip easier. One of the best things about going to the laundromat is that you can go in, wash and dry everything at once, and then go home. You won't be washing your laundry for hours and hours, you'll just be ready to go. So, what are some of the things that you can do in order to make your trip easier?

Use the Biggest Washer Possible

One of the things that you can do to make your trip easier is to use the biggest washer that you can fit your clothes in. One reason to do this is that it will actually save you money. You might look at the price of the larger washers and think that they aren't going to save you money, but when you compare how much that washer costs to the sum total of how much it would cost to fill up enough washers to hold the same amount of laundry. Using the largest washer you can also mean that your laundry is going to be done at the same time.

Dry Smaller Loads

You might be tempted to stick the same huge loads of wet laundry into the dryer, but if you do that, it's going to take your clothing longer to dry. Split the larger loads of your wash into smaller loads and spread it through several dryers. If you put a huge load of wet clothes in the dryer all at once, while you may be saving space and dryer use, you aren't going to be saving time. You also risk having some of your laundry getting all the way dry while other things stay damp, and you might not notice until you get home and put your laundry away. But, if you split them up, you can put them at a lower temperature and a lower drying time. That's also going to put your clothes at a lower risk of shrinking in the dryer. 

If you have to take your clothes to the coin laundry, you want to make sure that you can make your trip go as easily as possible. There are a lot of different ways that you can make your laundry trip easier.
