Laundry Room Rules

Posted by Hahli Husky , Oct 26 2010 · 292 views

The Game of Life
So this evening I got home from work to find my sticky-note pads covered in very angry scribbling. My mother had written out, in all caps (quite a feat), rules for our laundry room. I have been named the Laundry Queen of the household, but sometimes my siblings try to wash their clothes and it becomes a mess. So I could only assume I was supposed to staple these furious scribblings up in my little kingdom. But a thousand sticky notes aren't very pretty. You know what's pretty? OPEN OFFICE. ♥ Also little explanations to drive the point home.

Feel free to print these out for your own laundry room! XP

Laundry Rules & Guidelines



> Do not leave clothes in the washer overnight
I used to work with a dude who did this. He did not smell the moldy stench coming off his clothing, but everyone else DID. They DID NOT kindly notify him, however. It was a really hot summer to not have air conditioning, and at the end of the first week, my coworkers taped some pretty mean notes to the windshield of his car.


> Washer door must remain open when not in use
Did you know shutting the door creates a tight seal that allows mildew and other bacteria to thrive in the drum of the washing machine? Did you also know that new washing machines cost upwards of $700? Last I checked, none of you had paying jobs.


> If you spill soap – CLEAN IT UP!

The soap becomes very sticky and attracts dirt. Not to mention leaving messes makes you look like a dirty hobo who doesn't care. Get some exercise and fetch a paper towel, Oscar the Grouch.


> If it is not your wash day, ask before washing your load
If you don't have enough clean clothes to last you one week, there's a problem. If you need a certain outfit washed, it can be thrown in with one of that day's loads. I'm seriously thinking about putting all unauthorized washer loads inside the grill.


> Clean off the lint vent after every load!
Hey guys, I really like living in a house and having nice things. I don't know about you, but if our house were to burn down, I would be really sad. According to the National Fire Protection Association, as many as 15,000 fires start in the laundry room every year when lint from dryers builds up and catches fire. Those fires result in up to 19 deaths per year.


You guys are cool and I don't mind doing your laundry. But if you wanna be AWESOME, you'll make sure to check for these simple things. It's not hard. Also Mom will probably kill us all if she finds soap scum on the washer again. smile.gif

It's so annoying when my roommate(s) (IDK if it is more than one doing it) forgets to empty the lint.
(Fire, sure, but luckily I remember to check before hand. Ugg.)

$240? Haha. I bought a washer and dryer earlier this year - they weren't the cheapest ones, but they were still pretty bargain basement. ~$400 each.

Nice rules though. Glad I've never had any such laundry problems.

What is this Laundry room you are talking about...my clothes I just leave on the floor and the magically vanish downstairs only to return dry and clean a day later...

Just kidding ^^ Good rules! I've got one to add:

Check the rubber seal of the washers drum. It has a fold to the front where water might stay in. It has a small drain but that doesn't guarantee all the water goes that way and we don't want a mold carousel in the washer.

My rule for shared dorm washers: You should wait thirty minutes after somebody else's load has finished before you toss their stuff out yourself. I think it's rude to toss their stuff out the instant the washer's done (after all, it usually takes a few minutes to come down from the dorm rooms to the laundry room) but it's also rude to leave your laundry in all night long and not expect anybody to handle it.

Also, stealing of other people's laundry baskets is frowned upon. And Universities that provide only two washer/driers for a group of 200 students are cheapskates.

I came here half-expecting to see Rule 1:Don't talk about the laundry room.

I usually waited 15 minutes. Because I'm impatient, cold and unforgiving like that.

These are all... almost *duh* rules. D: It's all about thinking about others other than just yourself. Lint is just ick, and I always have to clean out the lint drawer in the dryers of my apartment. >.>

Good list to have, great list to share!

Aren't they, though? And you're exactly right. They tend to think only about themselves, so these things don't even make sense to them. >>

Laundry, it's a terrible thing to waste....

Anyway, Nice list, something can relate to since my Mom has me take everyone's laundry to the machine, I hate our washing machine though, if you don't put the clothes in just right, the machine will start to rock like crazy and then I have to run all the way to the basement to fix it...did I mention we've had the same machine for like as long as I can remember...the machine is slowly dieing, but not quietly...

The day it finally dies, I'm going to take it outside and...do something dangerous with it, will probably include collisions... tongue.gif
