This is a set of two items, actually. A clothes basket, and a dirty clothes hamper. Often these match and are visibly a set, but not always. Any set of clothes basket and hamper can be enchanted into a Laundry Conveyor, hence, Laundry Conveyors can look like any clothes basket and hamper. Maybe that was too many words for that idea. At any rate, let’s move on to the next paragraph and talk about what the Laundry Conveyor does.
It’s quite simple, really. Any laundry item that is placed in the hamper disappears, and shows up clean and folded in the bottom of the clothes basket a few seconds later. If there were already items in the clothes basket, the new items appear beneath them, pushing everything up as needed. The magic does what it can to keep the stack of laundry spread out and not piling up into one teetering spire of clean folded garments.
Basically, a dirty item placed in the hamper shows up in the clothes basket ready to wear in a matter of seconds. You don’t really need to talk this one up; people are usually pretty quickly on board. There are always questions, though.
What about delicates?
What about dry-clean?
What about ironing?
To which I can only say, “Shhh…” and then explain in the next paragraphs.
It’ll do delicates. However, the delicates might not do so well being pushed up under other clothes. Best to have the clothes basket empty, and do your delicates one at a time.
It’ll do dry-clean. It used to be an add-on you could get separately, but now it’s just included in most enchantments. Yes, your dry clean items will clean perfectly fine in the Laundry Conveyor. If it has the capability. It’ll say in the contract whether it has it or not. If you don’t have the contract, you can take it to a magic shop and they’ll be able to tell you. Usually for a fee.
It won’t do ironing. But there’s magic to keep the clothes as wrinkle-free as possible, so ironing isn’t usually needed. If you want steam creases and shit, yeah, you’ll have to get the iron out. But that was true whether or not the item was cleaned on the Laundry Conveyor.
