The purpose of this project was to conduct a cost-savings analysis of doing laundry within the Adult Correctional Institution in the Rhode Island Department of Corrections. This research was comprised of an assessment of the cost of homemade and store-bought detergent observed by an analysis of machine efficiency and life expectancy, followed by calculated savings and the desired effect versus the original pricing and the current effectiveness. Real-world practicality in the Adult Correctional Institute and the Rhode Island Department of Corrections was also considered. My research provides a cost-effective solution to doing laundry in correctional institutions.
