Enter the total cost and the total number of loads into the calculator to determine the cost per load.

Cost Per Load Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Cost Per Load.

  • Where CPLO is the cost per load ($/load)
  • TC is total cost ($)
  • #L is the total number of loads

To calculate the cost per load, simply divide the total cost by the number of loads.

What is Cost Per Load?


Cost per load typically refers to the cost it takes to do one load of laundry. This term can be applied to other types of loads, but laundry is the most common.

How to Calculate Cost Per Load?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Cost Per Load.

First, determine the total cost. In this example, the total cost of laundry was $50.00.

Next, determine the number of loads cleaned. In this case, the number of loads cleaned was 10.

Finally, calculate the cost per load using the formula above:

CPLO = TC / #L

CPLO = $50 / 10

CPLO = $ 5.00 /load
