You should dump a bag of cement in.

It wont help you with free laundry but it'll show 'em who's boss.

put boots in the dryer, record sound, encode to mp3 labelled as "paul oakenfold's best set" and place on file sharing networks

guys seriously I cannot take this injustice. Bag of cement might work, but I think Id have a hard time explaining that one.

you're gonna have to face the fact that you need a little jar in which all of the quarters for your daily spending goes into, for laundry day.

It is the bane of our existance.

If the coin slots are vertical, you can use a coffee stir stick in place of the loonie. It needs to be something flexible, but not something that will break off..the stir sticks are perfect.

The catch is to push the stir stick in at the same time as you slide the coin tray in. Basically it just requires something to push a level internally in the place where the loonie should be.

I've done it in my current building, and in another building I lived in. It's easy.

Yes, you did.

I was going to say "HI I KNOW YOU FROM THE INTERNET" but decided against it.

Next time though.

my roomies and I tried the stir stick method but it just doesnt want to work. if there are five quarter slots, dont we need five simultaneous stir sticks?




ps aww you two are soooooooooooooo cute :D

well, i know someone who managed to pull off a 4-stick steal, but its hard.

if the laundry is $1.50, you use the stir stick in place of the loonie, and get it for 50 cents...so, its alot cheaper. the laundry i used to practice on was only a loonie, so i never had to pull off more than one stick at a time.

its totally doable, but sometimes is tricky. just play with it a bit.

ps :)

at school we used to tape dental floss or fishing line or thread to the quarters and then line them up in the tray and put the threads over hanging the tray and hang onto them. that way your quarters don't fall down but the lever is still pushed.

don't know if it works for all machines though - just the old tray push in kind where you line up the money.

I used to do the stirstick thing when I had to pay for laundry. Its pretty difficult to pull off. I wasn't so great at it but others had more luck. The problem is that it is really easy for the stirstick to break in the machine and then you cant do any laundry at all. You can take your chances if you want!

i was the pro of the stick sticks back in rez. all three slots. i tried it again in an apartment building but it didn't work so good or i was out of practice.

everyone was doing it so then the fuckers cought on and now you have to swipe a card. good thing i graduated before that. :)

OR you could just pay for your laundry. I know, it sounds crazy, but it works a lot better than stir sticks.
