Adventures in Laundrying

I relocated recently, and for the first time in my life I am living at a place that does not have laundry machines in the unit or even in the building. For past several years, I've had and enjoyed the luxury of having easy and free-to-me access to machines.

Today, adventures in laundrying began as I went to a landromat for the first time in my whole entire life and spent approximately $20 on doing laundry! Washing lots of blankets and rugs etc. The experience, I must say, was quite pleasant. Minus the expensiveness of it. 

I specifically appreciated the speed at which this laundormat's commercial machines washed and dried everything thrown at it. Drying blankets at my last place would easily take 1-1.5 hours, and would take several loads due to the smaller size of the machine. At this landromat, we could shove most of our blankets in a single large machine. Washing took 20 minutes. Drying took 20 as well.

For someone like me who doesn't like waiting -- waiting in lines, waiting in traffic, waiting for someone, waiting for laundry to get done at a public place -- this was a dream come true. In and out in less than 1 hour!

Oh! What a time to be alive!
