Laundry might be the least glamourous of household chores. It is even less glamourous if, like me, you’re an apartment dweller without the luxury of an in-suite washer and dryer. In fact, it’s not a backyard or a garden I’m most looking forward to when I become a homeowner: it’s a laundry room.
I can’t wait for the day when someone launches a chain of stylish laundromats complete with high-end appliances, a detergent bar, lounge furniture and, of course, wi-fi. Until then, these affordable, yet indulgent, laundry essentials will help make sorting and folding loads a little more bearable.
