Sort before arriving: Save time by sorting your clothes at home. Use separate bags or bins for whites, colors, and delicates. This way, you can get straight to loading machines when you arrive.

Load machines strategically: Maximize your machine’s capacity by loading it efficiently. Place heavier items at the bottom and lighter ones on top. This ensures a more balanced load and better cleaning results.

Use color-coded baskets: Bring color-coded laundry baskets to transport your clean laundry home. It makes the sorting process a breeze and prevents mixing up your freshly washed clothes.

Time your visit: Avoid times when there are more people in the laundromat. Weekday mornings and afternoons are usually quieter, allowing you to complete your laundry more comfortably.

Bring entertainment: Waiting for your wash cycle to finish? Bring a book, magazine, or a pair of headphones with your favorite podcast to pass the time.

Check for loose change: Before you leave home, search for loose change in pockets, bags, and sofa cushions. You’d be surprised how much money you can find!

Multi-task: While your laundry is running, use the time to tackle other tasks. Bring a laptop to catch up on work, or pack a lunch to enjoy while you wait.

Pre-treat stains: If you have heavily stained items, pre-treat them at home before coming to the laundromat. This will give the detergent a better chance to work its magic.

Carry supplies: Keep a small laundry essentials kit in your car or laundry bag. Include detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, and stain removers.

Fold right away: After your clothes are done drying, fold them immediately to prevent wrinkles. If you’re short on time, use the laundromat’s folding tables for a neat finish.

Keep an eye on your laundry: While laundromats are generally safe, it’s a good idea to periodically check on your laundry to ensure nothing goes missing.
