Yes, Katie and Chuck talk about the laundry baskets being lined up each with the household's own detergent bottle on top and a note with instructions in Denmark. But you are right. We do not use that system here at Emeryville, although it has been suggested. Of course, we are only 12 households (BTW we have two washers and two dryers). One way that helps manage laundry congestion is to ask those who have flexible work schedules or who like to rise early or go to bed late, to do their laundry during the lower-demand times. On another, but related matter, if you are purchasing new machines or renting them, be sure that at least one of your washers is front loading. In addition to being much more economical and ecological than top loading machines, these are the only washers accessible to those in wheelchairs. Of course they generally are significantly more expensive. Whaddya expect?
