The time came to do the laundry and lucky enough our hotel in New York was five doors down from the laundrette.

I brought the washing powder for 75 cents per load and the machines come in three sizes, small $1.50, medium $2.50 or large $3.50. Then the drier was 25 cents for 8 minutes. We were in and out within the hour and Faye loved it.

When packing for the trip I tried to colour code our clothes to make this easier. We’ve gone for white, navy and pink. I also pre washed everything to minimise colour running. I had an incident on a previous holiday where one of Faye’s swimming costumes that was bright pink bled when it was wet.

I don’t know if it would be the same for boys but Faye throughly enjoyed loading and unloading the machines, so it provided cheap entertainment for an hour!

  1. Did Faye want to climb in one of those machines? My children would have at her age.
