£3.40? Damn! pembroke is £1.20!
Well, it's £1.20 per wash, and I always do 2 in order to separate delicate stuff from stuff that can be hot washed. Then the drier eats 20ps but you need to feed it at least 4 if not 5 to make it last long enough to dry your clothes. 7 20ps a week, it's a nightmare!

depends how many machines you use and whether you want to dry it or not. If drying how long do you want the tumble driers to run. It costs me 1.60 on average every two weeks.
I have a drying rack

ours do, they blow up every 2 seconds.

there are all the overheads of buying them in the first place plus electricity, water etc.

everyone else has tto pay for their washing, i dont see why students should be special.
well it's an additional inconvenience when doing the laundry is kind of an essential task. They should include overheads in the college bill (or maybe my accomodation fees are higher cos of my "free" laundry service)

sounds a bit like a hoax to me! just to get people sending up crappy warnings to all their contacts
well... this guy is in pembroke. Got that in my hermes box... He's either dumb enough to have been fooled into doing it, which is very likely, or he's the virus himself... in which case, I should shout "EXTERMINATE!! EXTERMINATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Oh, I see. you are far much busier than anyone else at other colleges.

you could go to the laundrette on mill road.
note the use of the "lazy" before the "busy" implying that me being "busy" usually means I'm being lazy...and when I'm not being lazy I'm AM busy (i.e. I divide my time up between doing work and doing pretty much nothing except sleeping)

Even I pay more than you do, and my room is not good. So just shut up about your laundry.

You are one sick and twisted bugger...

How on earth can one generate a "wash load" worth of "delicates" in a week?:confused:

Cookies give you orgasms?! You are one sick, twisted and lucky bugger.

patch: Literally "bugger", since the object concerned, the cookie maker, is obviously male.
