When I reserved my flat I made sure to indicate that I wanted a washer and dryer in it. I am past the days of schlepping to the cleaners, and although I am a college student again, I still have nice grown-up clothes that cannot be jeopardised in a public laundromat. Ew.
But, we have all used the washateria at some point. It might have been a long time ago but you know you have. Personally, I do not have any sweet laundry moments of my girlfriends and I having heart to hearts during an extra long spin cycle, and I certainly didn’t accidentally get some cute guy’s sock jumbled up in my workout clothes. My laundromat experiences included being grossed out by their weird smell and hot gusts of chemical air. I also remember trying to find a washer that was actually working before I put money it in and trying to find a washer that didn’t have weird bits of branches and dirt because it had previously been used to wash someone’s deer hunting garb.
But I don’t have to worry about this because I have a washer and dryer, right?
That would be wrong. My flat has a washer but no dryer.
