Some people are skeptical about going to a laundromat
What people don't know is that this is the perfect reason to use a laundromat service! Reputable commercial laundry services are responsible with your clothes and not only take good care of them but can help you out with pesky and stubborn stains. Since they've seen a lot of different kinds of laundry problems, they can help you out.
If you don't want to wait around and waste your time at the laundromat, why not opt for laundry delivery and laundry pickup? This makes the time that you actually spend doing laundry each week about ten minutes. Five minutes to drop off the dirty laundry and five minutes to pick it up clean, pressed, and folded.
If that isn't reason enough then how about the fact that if you wash your blankets and such at your parents house you first have to haul it all the way there and secondly they don't get clean anyway? True, they come out of the dryer wet and smell like laundry detergent but the typical household laundry machine can only properly wash a load of about 12 lbs. This is the size of a basket of laundry. A queen sized comforter does not get properly cleaned in a 12 lb load limit washing machine but can, in fact, be cleaned in a commercial laundry service machine.
You also save water when you wash at a laundromat. A home laundry machine can use up to 30 or 40 gallons of water per wash load. That's a lot of water! The eco friendly washing machines at your local laundromat are specially designed to only use about two or three gallons of water! That's a major difference! You can make an ecological difference in the world just by taking your clothes to a laundromat.
If your only other option if toting your clothes to your parents' house on the weekend, you should definitely look into taking your clothes to a laundry service. There's no reason not to! It saves you time, it saves water, and gets your clothes cleaner. What's not to love about that?
