3 Ways you can be more considerate in your apartment laundry space
Nobody really enjoys sharing a laundry room. But when you live in an apartment complex, it’s what you have to do to get your clothes clean. Laundering dirty clothes is hard enough, but dealing with other people’s mess and disorganization is what makes washing your clothes in a shared space a real chore. In the interest of good manners and a happier humanity – here are 3 ways you can make your apartment laundry room a better place.
1. Be Organized Before You Go
One of the most annoying parts having a shared laundry space is waiting for others to get organized before you can use a machine. Before you head out to do your load, make sure you are properly prepared with all the suitable laundry supplies you need to get the job done. Also, it’s especially important that you don’t make others wait for you to sort through your clothes- make sure your darks and lights have been separated before you go. A little pre-planning will make your trip to the apartment laundry room go a lot faster and save time for other users in the process, too.
2. One Machine Per Person, Per Load – Please
Just because there are 4 washers available, doesn’t mean you need to use them all. If you can’t fit it all in one load, do a second one. Using all the washers available is incredibly inconsiderate, and the fastest way to create tension in an apartment laundry room. Especially don’t leave your clothes lying about to ‘reserve’ multiple pieces of laundry equipment. That’s just rude.
3. Clean Up!
This goes without saying- but sometimes it doesn’t hurt to say it anyway. Clean up after yourself when you are using a shared apartment laundry space. Before you take your clean clothes home- make sure you’ve left the space just as you found it. Clean out the lint trap in the dryer, wipe up any sticky detergent or powder and check that you have all your belongings with you – stray socks and underwear included. By being tidy and considerate – you’ll make sure that your apartment laundry room is a pleasant place to get your chores done, and that being there is not a chore in itself.
