Please be courteous and mindful towards your fellow residents when using the laundry rooms and remember to:

  • Do not use bleach in the machines.
  • Do not overload or place bulky items in the machines, as that may result in needed service calls.
  • Promptly remove clothes from machines so other residents may use them.
  • Clean the lint collector basket from the dryer used.

And while we discourage removing someone else’s laundry from the machines, if it must be done, do so with care and consideration.
