Doing Laundry Just Got Easier
Sick of Apartment or College Life - and lugging your laundry all over the place?
How To Make Going To And From The Laundromat Less Heavy
- For the past several years, I have had to rely upon using the laundromat for my clean clothing needs. In exchange for my boyfriend washing all of the dishes and taking out the trash, I am in charge of the laundry. And for several years, lugging the laundry out the the car and then into the laundromat, along with a bottle of detergent, was a terrifically clunky, and heavy chore for me. I put a lot of thought into it. I couldn't quite come up with a terrific laundry solution. Then I took a trip to florida, packed my suitcase, had a great time on the Space Coast, and got back. A few days later it hit me. Suitcases, made to carry clothes, are a wonderful solution for hauling your laundry to and from the laundromat. Rolling luggage minimizes the time you have to actually pick up your laundry. Mostly, you just roll. What you do is put your laundry in a laundry bag, put it in the suitcase, and zip up. Voila!
- Along the same lines, instead of lugging a bulky and heavy containter of detergent, grab several small travel size containers, and fill them with detergent. Kind of like a single-serving/disposable detergent that they sell at the laundromat. Throw a couple into your laundry bag and voila! Refill the bottles every once in a while.
How To Save Money on Laundry Products
- Vinegar is great tool for the person in charge of laundry. It is a natural softener, and actually makes your clothing feel very soft (I was skeptical...and then nicely surprised). There is no odor of vinegar once your clothes are done, what so ever. And vinegar is maybe one tenth the price of any other kind of fabric softener!
