Re: Laundry room ettiquette - help!

If there isn't a sign-up sheet where the person had already declared use for that specific time frame (when you put their clothes in the dryer), then I personally think you had every right to take their clothes out if, in fact, the clothes had sat in the machine (in off mode) for an hour.

Your neighbors need to understand that they're not the only ones who need to use the machines. It sounds like maybe they were just angry that they weren't able to put in another load because you had beat them to it.

If there currently is not a sign-up sheet for your building, you might want to talk to the landlord or maintenance guy about getting one... and perhaps stressing on it that people need to remove their clothes ASAP.
