How long does it take to wash and dry clothes?
Preparation and sorting. It is our standard practice to sort clothes before shooting the laundry in the washing machine. It depends on the quantity of your laundry. This task can take not more than 5 minutes. But we do this for every load to make sure that the white clothes and colored clothes are separated before we start to wash and dry clothes.
Washing. This task will usually take a minimum of 30 minutes wash cycle for one load. But if the laundry includes a number of thick and large garments, we usually extend it up to 40 minutes. The time frame stated already includes a couple of rinse cycle.
Drying. Typically, drying time usually takes between 30 to 45 minutes. Shirts and pants are usually the first items to dry on the 30 minute mark but the pockets and seams of jeans or a large bath towel will be dried on the 45 minute mark.
Hanging. We always hang the clothes once the drying cycle is completed. Why? Because we found out that clothes which are folded and packed straight from the drying machine will bring out unpleasant smell once it is put in an airtight package. The solution is to hang the clothes for 15 minutes and allow them air dry before folding and packing.
Folding. One load of washing machine should take 10 minutes only.
