Tips for Using the Laundromat Dryer

  • Check Lint Traps / Find a Warm Dryer If Possible – Before you start the dryer make sure the lint trap is clean. You’ll prevent fires and your clothes will dry faster, saving you money. Find a warm dryer because starting with a dryer that is already warm will get those clothes done more quickly.
  • Fluff Each Piece of Clothing – As you load the clothes into the dryer, fluff each piece of clothing by giving it a quick shake. The clothes will dry more quickly and with fewer wrinkles. Be sure you get everything in the dryer before you start it up. Opening and closing the door loses heat and time.
  • Bring a large Plastic Bag – After getting those clothes dry, be sure they arrive home that way. Keep a large black plastic bag with your laundry supplies just in case you encounter rain on the way home.
