Laundry room signs need to be clear as to the function of the room. On occasion, it can be worth adding a washing machine graphic for additional clarity. This sign should be placed clearly on the door of the room. If it is in a large building, for example an apartment block, it may also be necessary to have directional signs by a lift or stairwell, so that it can be easily found.
If it is a public space, it is also a good idea to put up a sign with the rules of the room, to make sure the space is kept clean and useable at all times. These rules should include the conduct expected within the room, and any other issues necessary to keep the room a pleasant environment for everyone. It can also be useful to have laundry signs with basic information such as ‘separate whites from colours’, ‘empty pockets’ and when to add the fabric softener. This can be done either via a written sign or by using the universal graphics to denote each aspect.
The machines themselves may vary from other laundry machines and it can be important to display machine instructions such as where to put the money, which slot to place the washing powder in and how to use the different spin cycles.
