Laundry Mart experience.. Being from Ghana 


Life away from my comfort zone.. My country can have such great benefit even with me missing my comfort zone.. Place that I understand the language… Know my people and can relate… In charge of my situation. 

Now coming from Ghana… Raised in a typical Ghanaian home.. Washing machine and dryer is more like your hands and the sun.. 

With each travels most apartments we have our own washing machine and dryer… But since I try to venture out and learn how people without this technology called washer and dryer and can’t use your hands like we can from Ghana do it. So once in a while I will take all our large towels to the laundry mart… This might probably be my 5th time… But all of them seem different in each country. Here in rome the machines are heavy duty and I love the way it’s set up. I don’t need to bring my soap. It’s automatic dose of soap and fabric softener in the machine. And the machines are labeled with numbers and the weight you can wash in them. 

Like if you have cloths that are 14kg you will put them in the 14kg washer with a designated number on there and you will then go to a separate pay machine.. Choose the machine number and pay with coins or paper money.. And in this case it’s €7 which is about $7.83.

And you can also choose the 8kg machine which will cost you €6 or $6.83
Once its done which takes about 41min to wash… 
Then you will move it to the dryer… Which you pay €2 which is about $1.83 and that’s for 10min drying time. And with tables and baskets there you can then fold you items neatly and walk on home. 
So today my son and u had our mommy date at the laundry mart… Make fun out of every day… 
Such an accomplished day… Gym, deep house cleaning, healthy eating, homeschool kids, date with my son at the laundry mart.. Yeap.. It. All happened and it’s only 2pm.
