Help please - I'm a launderette virgin

I went this morning to wash some door mats and discovered a huge machine that awakened in me a desire to clean clean clean.grin
The machine was big enough that I went back after doing the mats and put all of DS's bed linen (including mattress protector) and the actual quilt itself (all double bed size). It cost £8 and took 30minutes.
I think I could have put all of our bed linen in there. Two double sets and one queen size set.
My question is, how much soap powder to use?
It has a pre wash and a wash.

At home I wash each set on a separate load and then tumble dry separately too if the weather is pants so it ends up taking over a whole day.
I'm thinking of doing it all in one go at the launderette instead and although I've got to pay £8 for the pleasure, it will be money well spent and probably about the same as three loads at home yes?

I would ask the people who work in there.

I must say, I bloody love a good launderette. Esp when ds was little, so I could legitimately go and hang out and read a book in peace for a little while, whilst virtuously feeling like I was doing a household chore.

I've never been in one, can I go and put all my clothes into one wash?

You could...depends how precious you are about your clothes! I used to at uni.

It's the thought of other people's clothes in there though 😆
I've had to use them in the past but my preference is to buy a huge fuck off machine I can have st home
