    Tianna's Bio:
    I'm a nursing intended major, biology/psychology minor and a part of the Honors program. In addition to school, I also work at McCarthy Manor as a CNA. In my "freetime" I like to explore Duluth, hang out with the girls, color, go to concerts, fish, hunt, enjoy the great outdoors, and spend time with my family and my boyfriend. I love Scholastica and Duluth and can't wait to spend the next couple of years here.

Done in 10 Steps

Unless you plan on bringing your clothes home every weekend for Mom to wash, knowing how to do your own laundry is an essential skill to bring to college. Scholastica provides washers and dryers for students to use free of charge. Every student on campus uses this service so it is crucial to use the machines correctly in order to keep them in working condition. Below you’ll find a quick tutorial on how to do laundry along with some quick tips for a successful laundry experience.

1.Sort your clothing into Lights, Darks, and Delicates.

  • Place small items such as socks and underwear in a mesh bag for washing.

2. Empty any pockets.

3. Place clothing in a washer. Do not overload by stuffing clothing in.

  • Overloading the washer may leave your clothing unclean or break the machine.

4. Choose the wash temperature. Either warm (darks) or cold (lights) and the size of the load.

  • Duluth water is too cold to rinse out detergent. Use a Warm Cold setting. 

5. Use the correct amount of detergent as directed on the bottle.

  • Using too much detergent may leave your clothing full of suds or break the machine.

6. Close the door and start the machine.

  • Washers at Scholastica usually take 25-30 minutes to wash.
  • Hang out in the laundry room or set a timer to come back before your clothes are done.

7. When the wash cycle is complete, place clothes in the dryer and empty the lint trap.

  • If you overload the dryer, it will take longer for your clothes to dry.

8. Start the dryer and wait.

  • Dryers, depending on the load size, usually take 30-50 minutes.
  • Hang out in the laundry room or set a timer to come back before your clothes are done.

9. Remove dry clothing from the dryer.

  • Double check dryer to make sure you got everything.

10. Put clothes away as you choose.

**Setting a timer is courteous to other students who also need to use the laundry facilities.
