Heading to the laundromat soon? Make sure you bring everything that you need! There is nothing worse than driving to a local laundromat only to find that you forgot something that is essential in completing your laundry. To help you avoid future frustration, our experts here at LaundryLounge have put together a list of essential items that you’ll want to bring along the next time you head to a laundromat.

Going to a Laundromat? Don’t Forget These Essential Items

  • Laundry Detergent - Of course, you can always buy a small amount of detergent from the coin-operated dispenser many laundromats have available, but you’ll save quite a bit of money by bringing your own regular-size container from home. You can also invest in detergent tables if you don’t feel like lugging around a hefty container of laundry detergent.
  • Method of Payment - You don’t want to go to a coin laundromat without any coins. If you don’t have coins at home, most laundromats will have change machines — just make sure to bring cash. Additionally, you should have a debit or credit card with you just in case, as many modern laundry facilities have machines that accept card payments.
  • Laundry Basket or Bags - Separating laundry into baskets or bags by colors and fabric type can help save you a lot of time at the laundromat. You’ll arrive with your laundry ready to go right into the machines. Additionally having baskets or bags will give you something to put your clean laundry in once finished. 
  • Snacks and/or Beverage - Depending on how much laundry you have, you may want to bring a snack, a beverage, or both to hold you over. Having these items packed before heading to a laundromat can prevent you from spending money at the vending machines once you arrive. 
  • Entertainment - Once you load your laundry into a washer or dryer and begin the cycle, it can be incredibly helpful to have some form of entertainment to help the time go by. Make sure you have your cell phone to connect to social platforms, chat with friends, or watch movies and TV shows. You also go old school by bringing a book or magazine if you want.
