The Circuit Laundry struggles that all students can relate to
If you've lived in university halls, you'll know about the monstrosity that is Circuit Laundry.
With the last of the first years finally leaving their student accommodation, this is a good time to look back on the highs and lows of student living. And one of the most significant lows is undoubtedly our good old friend Circuit Laundry. It's the service that made us all dread washing our clothes. It's expensive, the service is shocking at times, and to say the app can be unstable is a bit of an understatement. Personally, I resorted to washing most of my clothes by hand for the whole year.
If you've just finished your first year, it's finally time to celebrate by deleting the Circuit Laundry app. That's if you didn't already do it the second your foot stepped out of the door, of course. And if your time in halls was longer ago, it's time to remember how lucky you are to have put that dark time in your life behind you. We're going to remind you of everything you had to put up with back then, courtesy of Circuit Laundry.
When the app's timer doesn't work properly, so you have to spend extra time waiting in the laundrette and trying to avoid social interaction.
A circuit laundry minute is not a normal minute

And when they're finally done, your clothes aren't even clean.
Maybe if I leave my laundry in the rain with soap it'll be cheaper and work better than the monstrosity that is Circuit Laundry.

Imagine a world where Circuit Laundry tumble dryers actually dried your clothes

And you're left trying to come up with alternative solutions.
Dear Circuit Laundry, thanks for returning my clothes from the dryer still damp. I hate you. Sincerely all students pic.twitter.com/SSOamdeuYf

When their washes are so expensive, they clearly don't understand student budgeting.
Circuit Laundry are a joke. I have over £14 on my account and it still says "Warning! Low Balance"... babe if someone gave me £14 I'd at least say thanks!

And their promotions make no sense.

You start to think it might be better to just save your money. By buying a whole new wardrobe, for example.
cheaper to buy a whole new primark wardrobe than to do one circuit laundry load tbh

But at least you can take it all home now.
Are you even going back home from uni if you don’t have massive bag of washing and £2.70 saved from circuit laundry?

And there's that wonderful feeling of knowing you get your own washing machine next year.
buzzing to have a washing machine in my house next year so circuit laundry can stop fleecing me

Finally, you can delete the app and taste freedom.
Moving out of halls means I can finally delete the Circuit Laundry app. Dobby is a free elf.
