If you’re used to having your laundry done at home, and are nervous about doing it for the first time alone, follow our student laundry hacks  and try them out in your 939 Western apartment complex.

Sort
Save time by sorting your laundry in advance. Separate your whites from all other coloured clothing and you’ll be happy you did! Try to sort your clothes as you put them in the hamper, that way they are ready for washing right away!

Stain Remover
Did you get lipstick on your shirt while you were getting ready? Try cutting the crust off of a piece of bread and squishing the soft centre into a ball. Blot the bread on your shirt and you will notice most of the stain will be gone; the remaining stain should come off in the washer!
Ink stain on your shirt from class? Hairspray or hand sanitizer can do the trick. Simply spray or squirt the stain and wait 10 minutes, and then wash normally.
Grass stains on your pants from lounging in the courtyard? Hydrogen peroxide can help you out. Simply use 1tbsp dish soap and 2 tbsp hydrogen peroxide.

Whiten
You have probably heard that bleach whitens your clothes, but did you know that baking soda does the same trick? Consider placing 1 cup of baking soda in with your white load for an even brighter result!

Speed Up Your Dry Cycle
Did you know that placing a fluffy towel in the dryer will help to speed up your drying cycle? Simply place the towel in the dyer with your load and the towel will help to absorb water. Alternatively, a lot of your clothing can probably be hung. Hanging your clothes will cost you less money, and will help to keep your clothes wrinkle free as well!
