Laundry Tips

Tips on Use:

  • Students are encouraged to use High Efficiency (HE) detergents in all residence hall washers.
  • As a general rule of thumb, the units operate best when not overloaded, and when the clothing loosely fills the unit, and is not packed in.
  • Be sure to clean out the lint trap after each dryer use, and be sure to check before loading your clothes to ensure that the lint trap is clear. This will keep airflow open and will allow optimal dryer operation.
  • WARNING: Do not dye clothing, or place flammable materials or clothing soaked/soiled with flammable liquids in the washers or dryers.
