This post at Apartment Therapy elicited quite a few comments detailing how people do their laundry and how much they pay for it, up to $1.25 a load for a regular washer to $4.50 a load for a giant-size washer to $45 a week for drop off laundry service. I used to always drop off my laundry and $45 a week sounds like an awful lot to me-- I don't know if the poster is using the authorial "we" or referring to the laundry of a whole family, though, so perhaps they are getting a lot of clothes washed for that amount. I tend to spend less than $45 a month on laundry even including dry-cleaning.
This was my favorite comment:
A man named Bruce comes to pick up our laundry in his Lexus! It gets washed and returned, folded nicely and stinking of Bounce, for $40 every two weeks. There are two of us, so it's not so much money and well-worth it as far as I'm concerned. Even though my underpants occasionally disappear.How much do you spend on doing laundry?
