For as long as people have worn clothes, or perhaps a day or two after clothing was invented, clothes have needed cleaning. While this used to be accomplished by just washing them in a river, we’ve since invented far more effective methods of keeping your wardrobe clean.
An in house washer/dryer combo is a luxury that is easy to appreciate when you’ve been living without, but if you’re lucky enough to have a laundromat close by, it can actually be easier to do laundry there if you’ve got a lot of it. A laundromat is an establishment that offers access to a bunch of pay-to-operate washers and dryers, allowing you to do multiple loads of laundry at the same time. This allows you to conveniently condense a days worth of swapping clothes in and out of machines into a single cycle. As we’ve all heard, not all fabrics hold up well to being tumbled around in washing and drying machines, which is where dry cleaners come in.
Mainly saved for delicates or expensive outfits, dresses, or suits, dry cleaning is a process that uses a chemical solvent in place of water to get garments clean. While paying per garment or per load of laundry doesn’t seem ideal at face value, it’s a small price to pay for the convenience offered by such a service. If you’re local to Victoria BC, dry cleaning services and laundromats are easily accesible in the area. For more information, check out our member offers below.
