This guide will teach you everything about doing laundry in residence—from loading your laundry card to taking things out of the dryer, we’ve got you covered!
Whether the pile of dirty clothes is making it difficult to see the floor, or if your towels are just starting to smell a bit funky, it’s important to know how to do your laundry while living in residence.
For some, living in residence may be the first time you have been responsible for doing your own laundry, and making an effort to have clean clothes, bedding, and towels is important in maintaining good hygiene and an overall healthy lifestyle.
Follow these steps to make doing your laundry in residence easy!
Once your card is loaded, doing laundry in residence is easy! Simply load the machine you want to use with your items and detergent products, close the door and hold your laundry card to the card reader on the machine.
For best results, sort your items into whites and darks, and use just half a cap of detergent for a regular size load (Tip: check out detergent pods to eliminate the guesswork!). Your card balance will be displayed on the machine following this step. Make sure to keep track of your laundry card, as it cannot be replaced or refunded if lost!
Doing laundry in residence can be intimidating but once you get the hang of it you should have no problems. A load of laundry will take up to 1.5 hours to complete, so before you head down grab a textbook and a snack to get some studying in, as you don’t want to leave your stuff unattended.
