Re: Laundry Room Etiquette

If no one is using the ****ing machine, why not use it? Why assume somebody else needs it in a 45 unit place>

^that.

There are a few reasons why less than weekly laundry would be silly.

1. No discount for half loads. The machines charge what they charge.

2. Weekday rat race makes carving out 2 hours and lugging child/ren down to laundry room a bit of a feat.

...unless you're close or prepared to abandon your sleeping child/ren.

3. Why would you make the trip multiple times/week when you could 1-and-done it on a Saturday?


Perfectly reasonable for a parent to switch to weekly and have 6 loads in an apartment.

4. With six machines available where you do your laundry you can clean six loads of clothes in an hour and a half as long as you use all six machines.

Re: Laundry Room Etiquette

Semi hijack- but what's the play if someone leaves and their completely dry laundry is sitting in the dryer and there are no other dryers available.
I live in a duplex and my upstairs neighbor put her clothes in the dryer and then left. I had absolutely no idea how long she was going to be gone, but I had a lot of laundry that I need done for an upcoming trip. I waited for 1/2 hour hoping she would come back, but she didn't.
I ultimately ended up taking her clothes out, putting them in my laundry basket, then put them back in the dryer when I was done. I felt kind of creepy touching all her clothes, but felt like it was my only play.

Re: Laundry Room Etiquette

You take the clothes out and place them on the table/whatever is available. Anyone who does laundry in communal machines is being inconsiderate if they are not present when the cycle completes. It's selfish of them to occupy the machine any longer than is necessary.

Re: Laundry Room Etiquette

I may have missed it being stated like this, but using all six washers seems to be correct if and only if you have exactly six loads. Shouldn't come up all that often, but I may be mistaken on that part.

Re: Laundry Room Etiquette

I would include 11 or 12 also. But anyone with 12 loads is being an inconsiderate jerk in a different way.

Taking 6/6 machines isn't 50% worse than taking 4/4 machines, it's like 200% worse

Re: Laundry Room Etiquette

dk,

*******.

You should have taken 1. Waited 1/4 the cycle time, taken another if available. Waited another 1/4 cycle time, taken another if available. Then waited 1/4 the cycle time and taken another if available.

Re: Laundry Room Etiquette

i will say i was AGGRIEVED that there was only one dryer available since three of them were sitting with finished clothes. I would have preferred two but could live with one and let the towels be slightly undry. but then once I came back in an hour the same dryers had clothes sitting in them! so i took a **** and tossed it in one. last sentence might not be true
