Compact Washers: A Solution for Small Space Living

While we may not like airing our dirty laundry, it may be the only option if we are in small space living quarters. Whether that be an apartment, condo, tiny home, or cottage, you are probably well-acquainted with your local laundromat.

And while laundromats have commercial machines that allow for larger and faster loads, that cost can pile up.

  • Transportation to and from the laundromat = $1
  • Cost per load for the washer = $2
  • Cost per load for the dryer = $2
  • Detergent/dryer sheet costs = 21 cents
  • Average number of loads per week = 8

Based on these numbers, this amounts to about $41.68 per week and approximately $2,000 per year to use the laundromat. Keep in mind these numbers can vary significantly depending on where you live, the size of your household, and the type of machines the laundromat offers.

So, what is the alternative?
