Never thought about the skateboard; could have saved my shoulder a bit!

Thanks for all the suggestions. I will see if I can find a large cloth bag or large duffel bag.
Pillowcases would also work for transporting your laundry to and from the laundromat.
A week-worth laundry?
My question to you, however, is, really now, exactly how much dust and emmisions can be absorbed by your laundry during a two block walk anyhow?
Plenty.... For me, it is not a sunshine walk through the quiet neighborhood. I have to walk along a road with lots and lots of traffic with many trucks. I can take a tissue paper and wipe a leaf in my area, and there would be black dust. I have to do the same with my face and wash it when I come home.

There are many types of bags that are sold in the Supermarket. They have some with such stretch capacity that nothing can break through.

Happy Saturday.

Reading this thread was interesting for me as I am Australian and live in a rural area. I have my own washing machine (necessary as no laundromat in my area) and hang the clothes outside on a clothesline! I am thinking that a clothesline would do major damage to clothes in your area.

By the way, while you may see having your own washer and drier only as a luxury, do realize that doing laundry in a laundromat is far more efficient. Yes, of course I can do other things around the house while I do my washing and drying, but it still necessarily has to be over the course of a couple of days. Yes, you have more hassle getting the clothes there and back, but much less time overall!
