The Birches at Esopus


Each floor houses a laundry room for residents’ use. The laundry rooms are located next to the elevators on the second and third floors and on the East wing on the first floor.

The laundry machines installed are high efficiency machines which conserve on water and energy use. What this means for you is that you use less detergent per load. Please only use HE labeled detergent or half the normal amount of detergent used in regular washers. Using too much detergent will cause the machines to leak water and soap onto the floor and your laundry will not rinse properly.

Look for the HE symbol on the detergent bottles as pictured to the left.

Please be considerate of other when doing your laundry. Do not leave laundry unattended for an extended period of time as this prevents others from washing their laundry.

Heavily soiled items should be rinsed in the utility sink provided prior to placing items in the washer. Please be careful in placing detergent or bleach containers on the folding table as they may leave a residue that will get on yours or other’s clean laundry.

The laundry room is  a convenience for all residents, so please leave the laundry the way you would like to find it.
