Etiquette 101
Don’t Take
Up All The
 Machines
There are other people who
 need to get their laundry
 done, and it’s very frustrating
 (and rude) when someone
 uses up every available
 machine. Divide your laundry
 and do it in shifts.
Be Considerate:
Be There When
  the Cycle is
   Finished
It’s very easy to get caught up in another
   task while you wait for your laundry to
   finish being washed, but keep track of the
   time.
You should try to be back to the washing
   machine at least a couple minutes before
   the cycle has finished. (SET YOUR ALARM
   ON YOUR PHONE)
Not only does this speed up the process so
   that other people can use the machine, but
   it also prevents the risk of your clothes
   Don’t
Remove Other
  People’s
  Clothes
It is extremely rude to remove someone
  else’s clothes from a machine.
This is especially true with the dryer, as if
  someone’s clothes are still damp. Also,
  you put the other person’s belongings
  at risk of being stolen when you leave
  them out in the open.
Clean Out the
  Lint Trap
Clean up after yourself. Clean
 out the lint trap in the dryer,
 make sure that Bounce sheet
 finds the garbage, pick up the
 little pieces of paper that
 didn’t survive the washing
 process, etc.
Grease and
  Grime
If you have clothes that are really filthy,
  whether covered with grease or with a
  terrible odor, don’t just throw them
  into the machine. Try hand washing
  first, taking the clothes to the dry
  cleaner’s, or take the laundry to some
  other professional. If you throw the
  filthy clothes into the public machines,
  other people’s clothes can come out
  stained or smelling terrible.
Beware of
 Bleach
Bleach can be a great thing, but
 use it cautiously. You don’t want
 to use so much bleach that it isn’t
 able to cycle through the
 machine properly, and you don’t
 want to spill it. Other people will
 be very upset if that beautiful
 navy blue shirt comes out purple.
If You Find A
  Sock That
Isn’t Yours…
Leave it on the laundry table.
 Don’t throw it in the garbage.
 The person who lost the sock
 may come back and look for it.
 Wouldn’t you be happy if you
 saw that a considerate person
 had left it for you to find?
Don’t Ogle
Someone’s
Underwear
It’s very uncomfortable
 for someone to fold
 his/her laundry if
 someone is standing
 there eyeballing the
 underwear.
Report Theft
If you see someone stealing
  someone else’s basket or
  clothes, report it! How
  would you feel if someone
  stole your items and the one
  and only person who saw it
  happen didn’t say anything?
  Do NOT Let
 Your Friends
   Use The
Laundry Room
The laundry room is for
   Residents ONLY.
