We live in an apartment building with a shared laundry room. It's not a big building, but it's also not a big laundry room. There are three washing machines and three dryers. I don't mind the small size of the room or the fact that it's shared - I usually do the laundry on weekends, in the morning before anyone else does... so I don't have to wait.
But lately, I've been noticing the state of my roommate's clothing. He's noticed some white spots on his colored t-shirts, and he thinks they come from people using powdered laundry detergent in the machines. They do look like they could come from that, but I haven't noticed marks like that on my clothing.
I've noticed that some of his white t-shirts aren't so white anymore. He doesn't have a dirty job, so the non-whiteness of them doesn't come from him. The same thing happened to my white clothes when I was with my ex - excess dirty would come off his very dirty work clothes and get onto my clothes, when I washed them together.
So I'm wondering... could the state of our neighbors' clothing affect how well ours gets washed?
