One of the various housekeeping chores I did last week while on break was to take all of our bedding to the laundromat. I have an awesome washer and dryer, but our bulky blankets and comforters always make it unbalanced. Now I just take it all and put it in an industrial machine in the laundromat. It takes less than an hour to wash and dry four blankets, a mattress pad, and the cover for our foam topper and it costs about $15. That would be a full day project in my home machines.
