Laundry day stress

Laundry day stress

A nationwide laundry habits survey found that those who wash their laundry at home spend 50 percent more time on this tedious chore than those who visit a coin laundry. With the cleaning season upon us, it's time to lighten the load and take a trip to the local laundromat.
At the laundromat, their 25-pound commercial-grade coin laundry machine can wash two baskets of laundry per cycle whereas a typical 10- to 12-pound residential washer can handle only one basket.
Coin laundry customers further reduce their weekly wash time by using the 50- to 75- pound machines available only at coin laundry establishments. These machines can wash up to eight baskets of laundry per cycle, thus turning a day of laundry into one hour.
A laundry drop-off service is perfect for people who are time-starved. It is said that the average American woman spends seven to nine hours on laundry per week! When you add the additional loads created during seasonal cleanup and this chore seems never-ending.
