I went this morning to wash some door mats and discovered a huge machine that awakened in me a desire to clean clean clean. 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 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.
