13 OF THE BEST PLACES TO DO YOUR LAUNDRY IN CAPE TOWN

As much as feeling like your life is taken aback the minute you start thinking of doing your laundry, don’t despair, I got you. The following is a list of the best places to do you laundry in Cape Town:

WASHR

Laundry Cape Town

As much as looking at your laundry brings tears to your eyes, the mere thought of packing your dirty clothes to go drop them off is another mission in itself. For someone like me, carrying bags of dirty clothes into a train automatically regards you as either a (train) hawker who’s about to scream on top of her lungs what specials she has on her. The worst is when a humble guy offers to help me with my bags and having to politely say “No, thanks” and look away, for that fear of a conversation sparking and having to explain that I am on my way to drop off a ton of dirty clothes at a Laundromat.

Thankfully Washr is one of the Laundromats that operate mainly online. “Laundry online – Your Laundry and Cleaning delivered”, nothing can ever beat this service – how I wish I knew about them the minute I stepped into Cape Town. Their washing machines are as effective as their service. They offer free pickup and delivery with 24 hour turnaround.

All you have to do is contact Washr and place an order, you will have to share your address and a timeframe for them to come and collect. This process is easier than actually having to boil an egg. After issuing your address, a friendly driver will come and collect your dirty dresses/suits/sweatpants, whether your clothes are in fashion or not; they will be taken care of. They will inform you about what tine they will be ready and back in your arms again.

LAUNDRY ON LONG

With their working hours being from 8 am – 7 pm surely shows how dedicated Laundry on Long (LOL) is. All equipments found at a Laundromat, top of the range washing machines, tumble dryers, etc. Equipment safe enough for your Levis jeans or Nike t-shirt, if you’re a fan of online clothing? Bring those close along too and let’s not forget your favourite “blanky” *wink*. Abbreviated “LOL”, it is situated in the CBD. With great reviews from local and international clients, LOL values punctuality and a sense of ‘when you smell good, you will feel good’. “Laundry Today or Naked Tomorrow” just make sure to give LOL a try whenever you are in town.

I LOVE MY LAUNDRY

A name that is sure to keep you intrigued and needing to see a Laundromat that would claim I Love My Laundry, as a curious person, I had to understand what the fuss was all about. Whether they use Whirlpool washing machines or Samsung washing machines, this laundry services based in Cape Town in the CBD is sure to make you love waiting for your laundry and hope it takes a while longer for them to be ready. I Love My Laundry has a very strong social media presence (Facebook) and they tend to give basic laundry guides. I wouldn’t even call the place a Laundromat, it is more like CoffeeMat, a combination of a Laundromat and a coffee shop with an open space to freely move around and be aware of the intriguing space you are around.
