What do I need to know to do laundry?
While it may not be the best part of your college life, doing laundry is easy once you know how. Follow these tips for laundry success:
- The washers require HE (high efficiency) detergent and only 1/4 cup or less.
- The new liquid pods are fine to use but they need to go in the door - not the drawer
- Please do not use solid soap tablets or Purex 3-in-1 sheets.
- No bleach at all should be used due to the Newark water.
- Please leave the washer door open after use.
- Empty the dryer lint filter every time.
- Read your clothing labels for the best way to wash each item of clothing. If it says DRY CLEAN ONLY, don't put it in the washer or dryer.
- Empty your pockets! Items left in your pockets can damage the machines and ruin your clothing.
- 1 wash load = 1 dry load. An overloaded dryer won't dry your clothes in one cycle.
- The washer door will lock about 30 seconds after the cycle starts and will not unlock until about 30 seconds after the cycle completes.
- Front Load Washers are large capacity and can wash up to a double-sized comforter. (By itself - not with other items.)
- If the dryer setting is too hot, you can shrink your clothes, especially jeans and 100% cotton items.
