Laundry

The majority of rental properties in Picard do not include washers/dryers. So, here are your choices for laundering :

  • Wash everything by hand. Some people buy locally a hand cranked laundry spinner to help wash/wring out their clothes. Pack a drying rack if you plan to wash manually or purchase one at James’ Store or Astaphans once you arrive. Outdoor line drying is very popular here but keep in mind that during rainy season it’s a bit of a challenge.
  • Use a local laundry service. Phone numbers for recommended laundry services can be found in the Ross Practical Guide to Dominica or in the comments below. Some are same day service, some not. Some pick up and deliver, some do not.  So ask questions when you call. Prices are usually given per pound or by number of loads washed. Typically one load of laundry costs around 15-17 EC (6 USD).
  • Buy a washing machine/dryer from Courts in Portsmouth or Astaphans in Roseau. Sometimes you can also buy these appliances from a faculty member or student who is leaving the island.

    I was wondering if you could recommend a good laundry service? I’ve been using one that I’m not too impressed with, since I usually get other people’s clothes and mine come back with bleach stains!
