Why is laundry service so great?

When you are trying to decide what to wear for your day of hiking, lack of clean clothes won’t be an issue. Many hikers wash in sinks of hotels along the route, this can leave clothes crusty and wet if they don’t dry out all of the way. But with a built-in laundry service on the Deluxe Haute Route half way through the trek you won’t have to wash anything by hand!
