  • A necessity of course.

  • Luxury. There are laundry mats in every town.

    But dang, I'd hate to give it up!

  • I guess a luxury...you can wash clothes by hand. I think a necessity would be food, water, shelter.

  • For me it would be a luxury to have my own washing machine and dryer because 1. I have to pay 1.50 to wash a load and dry a load. That's 3.00 per load. 2. I wash clothes by hand when I have no money. 3. Water in my apartment is paid so it wouldn't cost me hardly anything to wash my laundry!

  • I am torn here. I guess it is a luxury to have one in your own home. Laundry mats are terribly inconvenient.

  • We don't have a river we can wash our clothes in. We cannot walk to a laundromat. Oh, drive to the laundromat? Of course. But if I can afford a car, I can afford a washer and dryer, right? Maybe it would be considered a luxury by some but with the price of gas, the time cost (yes, if I am driving there and sitting at the laundromat, I am not working on my home business - hidden cost), it is an absolute necessity. Fun question, though, get's you thinking...

  • Necessity... you waist too much money at laundromats. You can pay off your washing machine in what you shell out at a laundromat in about a year. Of course you have to have the room for it and the hook ups
