10 Tips for Washing at the Laundromat
Whether you come to the laundromat for speed, specialty large items or if you don’t have a washer and dryer in your home, here are ten helpful tips on how to make the most of your time at the any laundromat.
1. Sort at Home
To save time, sort your clothes at home. This way, you can simply put your separated loads in the washer and start the process quickly.
2. Treat Stains Beforehand
At Breeze, we already make things incredibly simple by providing complimentary laundry detergent and dryer balls – so, if you do your stain treatments at home, the only thing you’ll have to cart inside is your hamper.
3. Avoid Busy Hours
If there aren’t many people at the laundromat, you can use as many washers as you need to get all of your loads going at the same time. This is a real time saver! With the Breeze Club, you can check to see which washers are in use.
4. Make Sure Washers are Clean
Sometimes things are left behind. Whether socks or leftover soap from the previous customer, it’s best practice to make sure your machine is clean before you use it. At Breeze, we have a special sanitizing rinse feature that only takes 60 seconds. We recommend sending the washer through this cycle to make sure your clothes are as clean as possible!
5. Give Machines a Whiff
By smelling the washer, you can tell if someone did a load with bleach before you, then you can avoid using that machine and ruining your clothes.
6. Bring a Garbage Bag
The last thing you want is to take your freshly-dried clothes out into the rain. Keep your clothes warm and dry by using a garbage bag to cover the hamper when you transport it to your car.
7. Ditch the Quarters
It’s not always easy to get your hands on rolls of quarters, and you might not feel comfortable whipping out your debit or credit card, which makes our Breeze Club card the perfect option. You can load the card right from your phone!
8. Check Your Settings
You never know what settings that the last person had the washer and dryer on. Before every load, check the settings to make sure they suit the load that you’re doing.
9. Stay Around
If you leave your clothes alone, you run the risk of being gone for too long. Other customers want to use the machines, and you might return to find your personal items piled on top of a washer. To prevent this, stay close and stay attentive.
10. Bring Your Hamper
The last thing you need is wrinkled clothes after you just spent time making sure they’re fresh and clean. Fold your clothes at the laundromat, then pile them nicely in your basket for the ride home.
