One thing can be agreed upon by most college students: laundry is a hassle. Mustang Laundry aims to ease the stress of college life by doing the entire process for you, from sorting to washing to folding.
With support from Tide and Proctor and Gamble, Tide Mustang Laundry can get your clothes cleaner and taken care of better. Simply register online, drop your laundry off with one of their designated trucks and use the My Laundry app to track your items.
Laundry has never been easier. Here are eight fun and productive things you can do with the time you would use to spend doing laundry throughout the school year.
1. Hike the San Luis Obispo peaks
There’s a number of hikes you can go on in San Luis Obispo and they are right in your backyard. Both the Madonna Mountain and Bishop Peak trails are great ways to get away from the stress of school.
2. Paddle out at Morro Bay
Morro Bay is a short 15 minute drive from Cal Poly. Take a friend and explore the waters and marine life of the Central Coast.
3. Learn a new language on YouTube
If you’ve been meaning to learn Spanish, French or even Korean, now is the time. YouTube is a great resource to start learning a new language, and it’s all completely free.
4. Express your creativity and get crafty
Have you always wanted to shape a surfboard or take a flameworking class? The two hours you used to spend doing laundry can now be dedicated to picking up a new skill at the Craft Center.
5. Volunteer at a local nonprofit
Nonprofit organizations in San Luis Obispo are always in need of help. A couple that have worked with Cal Poly students in the past are Special Olympics SLO County and Growing Grounds Farm.
6. Drive up (or down) the coast
Big Sur and Santa Barbara are relatively close to Cal Poly. Take a day trip or stay overnight for a weekend getaway.
7. Sign up for an intramural sport
Your laundry can be done for you throughout the week, so now you can have clean clothes ready for practices and tournaments.
8. See a double feature at the drive-in
These days, drive-in movie theaters are a rarity. Sunset Drive-In in San Luis Obispo is an affordable, laid-back option for a night out.
