Persona 5 The Royal - Laundry and Dirty Equipment Guide

Guide on Laundromat and Dirty Equipment Overview

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.

Visit 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 of 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

Equipment that can be found inside palace chests, 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.
