I never even considered repeating that. it is also invaluable to have a W/D in my own apartment because I also work at home. I don't have to coordinate with anyone and I control the quality. When I moved in, after a few weeks of washing a bunch of cotton t-shirts and jeans with stains on them in my Bosch with hot water, the stains were gone. We don't have hot water or good washers in the CH -- standard commercial quality -- but they are the low water kind as is mine. (Don't let the service person just install whatever just because it is front loader.) BUT I recently heard of an advantage to the CH laundry room I hadn't considered. Washing for four in the CH with two machines can mean you do laundry once a week for 2 hours instead of every day, a load here and a load there. Clothes always sitting to be switched from one machine to the other or in the dryer to be folded or hunted for. Doing laundry becomes a daily task like cooking.
