Think you have it tough when it comes to doing laundry?
Imagine doing it for an entire NFL team — and against the clock, too.
The washers and dryers at Virginia Mason Athletic Center run from sunrise to sundown and then some, and they’re humming especially between practices on a two-a-day schedule. The Seahawks’ equipment staff has to turn around all jerseys, shorts, shirts and socks for 80 players in a short window. It creates quite the time crunch, but one they handle nonetheless.
All told, it takes about three hours to do 12-15 loads of laundry in commercial-sized washers and dryers, leaving just enough time for the players to get dressed once again for their second practice of the day.
