Who has time for laundry?

Nowadays it’s hard to find time to do the household laundry. Between long hours at the office, going to school, taking care of the family, and attending school, how can you squeeze it in? Fortunately, laundry has gotten easier! We offer a few hacks to “lighten the load” and, if you simply don’t have time in your busy schedule to wash and fold clothes one load at a time, you can always take them to a laundromat. Even better, consider a wash and fold laundry service!

No one likes to do laundry, but it needs to get done

Let’s face it, very few people actually enjoy doing laundry, but it’s one of life’s realities. By the time the process of sorting, washing, drying, and folding clothes is over, you could have been doing something far more enjoyable. Never fear – here are a few ways to simplify the process:

First, come up with a system for sorting your clothes. You can accomplish this by having different baskets for whites and colors. If you have extra space, add bins for each type of garment. This will cut down the time it takes to sort your clothes on laundry day.

A second approach to making laundry less overwhelming is to do a load every day. By tackling it steadily throughout the week, there is less to do on the weekend. Then with your extra time, you can engage in other fun and restful activities.

A third solution is to search for a nearby laundromat that offers wash and fold service. If you live in any of these Chesapeake neighborhoods, consider Coastal Virginia Laundry:

How to choose a laundromat

Undoubtedly the best laundromat will be one that is clean, convenient to you, has competitive prices, and takes multiple forms of payment.

  • A clean laundromat environment means your clean clothes won’t get dirty again. It’s also a sign that the laundromat has a diligent, attentive staff. Particularly if you’re going to wait for your clothes to get done, you want to spend that time in a tidy laundromat.
  • Taking your laundry to a convenient location helps to minimize the total time it takes to get your laundry done. Furthermore, if you lack transportation, you may want to carry your laundry to the laundromat. If the laundromat is too far away, you could end up procrastinating and have a mountain of dirty clothes and nothing to wear.
  • No one wants to spend a fortune to wash and dry their clothes. Look for a laundromat that has competitive prices, but not at the expense of cleanliness and convenience.
  • Finally, before you leave home, found out if the laundromat accepts your preferred payment method. Whereas many laundromats have shifted to a card-based payment system, you may prefer paying with coins. Coin-operated machines still exist. Thankfully, Coastal Virginia Laundry – Chesapeake offers the option to pay with coin or card. Call today for more information!

Consider wash and fold service

An additional service that is becoming more popular these days is wash and fold. You simply drop your clothes off and pick them up when they’re ready. Do you have allergic reactions to perfumed and scented detergents? No problem! A reputable wash and fold service will offer several options for detergent and fabric softener.
