  • Shoot them !!!
  • I guess you're going to have to babysit your laundry. Bring a book, newspaper, magazine, headphones, etc.
  • you should either stop leaving your laundry unattended, or start doing it someplace else.
  • Steal theirs.
  • Pretty pathetic on their part!! Either get some kind of camera installed in the laundry room for collecting evidence or bring a book with you so that you can babysit your clothes while they're washing.
  • Stay there while your clothes wash, or just write your name in them. How embarassing would it be for them to be on a date and take off their shirt and the date realize they have someone elses shirt on. Bet that would be the last date!;)
  • Plant a couple of live cottonmouth water moccasins inside a washer with some clothes. This should break them of the habit of reaching into other people's washing machines.
  • make a sign an put it in the laundry room that says "Smile your on camera" thanks management.. hopefully they would think twice about it then. other then that you will have to hang out in the laundry room while they dry. i guess if you see someone wearing your clothes you could stop them an be like wtf.
  • Stay with your clothes. Complain to management, and tell management that for every item of clothing you're missing out of your load, they need to either reimburse you, or take that amount off of your lease. (even though I know that won't happen.) It's your responsibility to keep an eye on your property ultimately though.
  • Stay there with them or if someone else is there ask them if they would keep an eye on them until you get back
  • Drill a hole on the side of the door and another in a place next to the door hole (this one should not be on the door as well, as this would make everything go to hell). Now you should have 2 holes. One on the door, about 1/2 inch from the edge of the door. Another, NOT on the door, and once again 1/2 from the edge of it. It, being the door. Actually, you may be confused by me saying door because who in their right mind would put a door on a wash machine, let alone drill a hole in it. So I'l say hatch. By the way, our well-established holes should be the width of a combination lock. That wasn't very good phrasing, but i think you get the general idea. If none of this has made any sense and you are now thoroughly confused, please disregard this answer entirely and go with Danielitox's.
  • Stick a six foot python in there.
  • shoot them
  • they'll have to wash your shirt eventually, steal 'em back! :)
  • Put a sign up with something like: Because of a spate of thefts a "micro" CCTV camera has been installed in this room....then watch for who is walking around with a crick in their neck from looking for it :o)
  • umm i like of of the ideas here, but id climb in their open window and steal theirs and while your at you could find some interesting stuff that your neighbors wont tell you
  • I had neighbors in my old complex that encountered the same problem a handful of times. I'm very particular about things being taken from me (I've had my own family come into my home and steal). When it comes to using a public laundry room, you need to set up your load(s), and follow the time that's allotted. If the washer load will be done in 45 minutes, you need to be there when it the 45 minutes is over. and I suggest since this happening quite frequently, bring a book or magazine to the room and guard the dryer with your clothes until it's done and you can take your things. Keep a lookout to who comes into the room without clothing to wash. Good luck : )
  • Stay in the laundry room one day while your clothes are drying. Use that time to read, listen to music, or just sit and relax.
  • Get some uglier clothes. P.S. Why were you washing clothes that you've never worn? Guess I never thought of that.
  • I got it, put itching powder in your next load.
  • well first have a glass of wine. and then grab the shot gun. even if you miss, you're still happy because you had the glass of wine!
  • Hi, Jen. (((HUGS))) STAY in the laundrey room until they're done (I assume you're in an apartment building). Take a book, your laptop, homework (even from work-work), magazine, something, and just stay. If you live in a house and are being facetious... Who have you let in and how did they get in so you wouldn't notice? ;-)
  • Start by calling the cops, reporting the theft, and knocking on ALL doors to tell everyone that there are clothing thieves and you have called the cops ... ask everyone to sign a petition to get security cameras in all hallways and especially the laundry room ... ask the cops to get a search warrant for the whole building and do what ever is possible to get the clothing back ... ... and stop giving the thieves the opportunity they need ... stay in the laundry room until your last load is completed and watch over your clothing.
  • Buy ugly clothes
  • Set up a fake camera so they think they are being watched.And if they don't by it, set them up with a small alligator or snake in the machine to surprise them
  • Next time you hang out the cloths. Hang some of those you really don't plan on using anymore. Maybe do to they are out of stile or out grown or just unwanted...Then put some itching power in the pockets of them. That should do it......LOL.....
  • put some old stuff in there for a while and maybe they will figure out you dont have anything nice to wear and they will go to some one else and steal their clothes.
  • Install CCTV Camera (at secluded spot so nobody realize it's there). Give it to the police once u caught the thief.
  • Call the A-Team.
