First and foremost,is your clothes care center clean, painted, comfortable and inviting? Why? Because it should encourage the residents to STAY with their laundry. Do you have a television bolted high on the wall? How about an exercise bike, a shelf with resident donated books for borrowing / exchanging? Do you have a great table for clothes folding? How about a controlled bulletin board where they can post items to sell or things they want to buy? We cannot be liable for laundry left unsupervised, and it is understandable that if a resident needs a dryer and they are full of dry clothing, that they will pile it out...I would, too! So clean up, decorate with cheerful colors, issue some policies and a plea to take care of the clothes center, be responsible for your own laundry, and be a good neighbor! Do you keep it locked and issue keys for residents use? Do you ask that it not be a play area for our under 14 residents? Be proactive!!
