Persona 5 Royal - Laundry and Dirty Equipment Guide

Guide for Laundromat and Dirty Equipment in Persona 5 Royal

During your cognitive heists, you have the chance of acquiring dirty equipment. Dirty equipment are non-wearable armors or protectors unless they washed at a laundromat or at home. Once they’re washed, the dirty equipment will become cleaned armors.

Visiting the Laundromat

At the start of the game, you can visit the laundromat and clean your recently acquired dirty equipment. Access to the laundromat costs 200 yen and you can turn in a maximum of four pieces of dirty equipment at a time. Doing so will consume an action point so make sure that you don’t have other important activities to be done during the daytime or evening.

Avail the Housekeeping Service

Once you are able to maximize Sadayo Kawakami’s Temperance Confidant, you can have her do your laundry for a fee of 5000 yen instead. However, the best time to have them washed is when you have raised her confidant to level 9 since she will offer to clean them free-of-charge.

How to Acquire Dirty Equipment

Dirty Equipment can acquired in palaces, mementos, or from Tanaka’s Shady Commodities. As the name implies, this gear needs to be cleaned before it can be worn. Washing a piece will transform it into one of four possible items. After restoring the dirty equipment, its value will increase. While they can be sold at a price comparable to standard gear, it’s better to use what your party needs. By doing so, you will save money when it comes to equipping your party. Some protectors are even unique because you can’t purchase them from shops.

Since you can’t afford to spend time early in the game, you can save doing laundry for a later date.

Differences between Dirty Equipment and Sooty Armor

In Persona 5 Royal, you can acquire a new type armor called “Sooty Armor”. Sooty Armor also needs to be cleaned through laundry to unlock new armor. They can be acquired through Kichijoji’s Vintage Clothing shop or by defeating Disasters Shadows in palaces and mementos. After cleaning, you have the option to sell them to the Airsoft Shop to earn more money.
