The most dreaded day of the week: laundry day. Although it may not be a large task, doing the laundry can be tedious and time-consuming, so in this week’s Barton’s Mill Apartments Blog, we’re going to share with you some tips on how to make laundry day just a little easier. Keep these tips in mind when you’re using our Austin, TX apartment community laundry facility.

Don’t Overstuff the Machine

When you have a lot of laundry, it can be tempting to want to stuff as much laundry into the machine as possible. We advise you to refrain from doing so, as it can not only cause your clothes to remain dirty, but also because it could damage the machine. We know that doing the laundry can be time consuming, but taking your time and not overstuffing the machine will leave you with cleaner clothes.

Set a Timer

If you’re a busy person and you have other things to do, we suggest putting your laundry in the machine then setting a timer. This way, you can head back to your apartment and get chores, homework, or other important matters taken care of. Once the timer rings, head down immediately to switch your laundry from the washing machine to the dryer or from the dryer to your apartment.

Sort Your Laundry

Take the time before going down to the laundry facility to sort through your clothes. Place all alike colors together and wash them in homogenous loads. It may not seem like much, but doing so will extend the longevity of your clothes, keeping your whites whiter, darks darker, and colors brighter!
