Laundr, Origins | University of Florida Laundry App

When he first moved to Gainesville in 2014, the number one concern in our good friend Zion’s head was “will my house have a washer/dryer unit or do I have to share a washer with a bunch of people?” 

It was after hearing many stories like this one that Florida students Michael Behfar and Kyle Lampkin decided to use a peer-to-peer system to shake up how the world does laundry. The revolution starts here in Gainesville. 

This article will cover:

Benefits of Using Laundr | University of Florida Laundry App

Washing your clothes using community machines can be a huge chore. Not only do you have to physically drag your clothes there and back, you are also forced to expose your undies to the public! On top of these inconveniences, community cleaners can hurt your wallet. 

On average it costs $5 to wash and dry a single load of laundry. That is without counting the monthly expenses of laundry detergent, scent enhancer, softener, and dryer sheets.

If you have you ever worried about people stealing your clothes out of the machine, Laundr is the service for you

The benefits of Laundr are:

  • privacy
  • quality of wash
  • time
