“Behind every successful woman…
is a basket of dirty laundry”
Love laundry – hate ironing.
In Sweden when living in apartments– to 90% is there a public laundry rooms in the basement – a very Swedish thing – you get a key with your apartment number on and there is a board that you put your lock for the time you want to do laundry. Very smart system, now a lot of house has electronic locks and booking boards. My house hasn’t gone that modern and I hope it wont – because you can’t use the laundry rooms if somebody hasn’t turned up for their booking. We have 4 hours x 2 times per months – the rooms can be used 7 days per week and 3×4 hours per day, between 0800-2000.
The laundry rooms are well equipped with heavy duty washing machines ( at least 2 per room) + one for carpets , dry cabinets, centrifuge, tumble dryer, mangle, iron board and some house can also have drying rooms. Fantastic set up and all electricity and water is including in the rent.
New modern house every apartment is equipped with washing machine and tumble dryer, but then you have to pay for all usage of electricity – water always includes in the rent. A lot of tenants have installed their own washing machine and tumble dryer in the flats on their own expense. Not me … !!! Happy with the set up as it’s.
The con with this set up is – that we are suppose to clean the all rooms and machines we have been using – 15% of us do that. Terrible and if there is any fall outs between neighbours is it about the laundry rooms.
So what do I need for my laundry – first of all shopping bags to split up everything into the different colors and degrees
Arial or Via and Comfort – for the wash
Klorin (bleach) and Vanish for stains and whites
Dryer ball and Bounce dryer sheets for my towels in the tumble dryer
and my plastic spray bottle for bed linen – going through the mangle
My clothes and under wears I never put in tumble dryer– hang everything up in the apartment – have a little alcove beside my bathroom – for laundry – to hang everything … tumble dryers tear so on clothing. Always have my laundry times 1600-2000 and after I’m finished – I phone for a Chinese “takeaway” – then I had a perfect afternoon
We, women can be such simple creatures.
