Where Is the Nearest Launderette to Me?

Doing laundry is one of the nation’s least-liked household chores. Let’s face it, washing, drying and folding clothes is time-consuming, laborious, and hardly glamorous. It can also be very expensive if you are continually using your washing machine and tumble dryer, as it racks up those energy bills.

So, it is no surprise that many Brits choose to outsource their job to launderettes and laundry service companies, to eradicate those boring chores from their to-do list.

If you are looking for a place to wash and dry your clothes, then you may be wondering where is the nearest launderette to you.

We will outline below where you can find your nearest launderette.

What do I bring with me to a launderette?

  • Your dirty laundry, separated in colours and whites.
  • A large basket or bags to transport your dirty laundry and clean garments afterwards.
  • Washing powder or laundry detergent.
  • Various coins, or cash cards if the launderette accepts them. Bring extra cash with you in case you don’t know how much your wash will cost.
  • Disinfectant wipes and hand sanitiser, so you can wipe down surfaces where other people’s laundry has been sat.
  • If you like, you can also bring fabric softener or dryer sheets.
  • Something to keep you occupied while you wait (e.g. a book to read, or headphones so you can listen to your favourite playlist).

Are launderettes coin-operated only?

Yes, most launderettes are coin-operated only, so you should bring various coins with you which you will insert into the washing machine.

Bring a mix of 20p, 50p and £1 coins with you when you visit a launderette to do your laundry.

At Love2Laundry, you will pay for your orders online or via our mobile app. We don’t store your card details on our server and we use the Stripe payment system to offer you maximum protection when making a transaction.


Can you leave clothes unattended at a launderette?

No, it is not recommended that you leave your clothes unattended in a washing machine or tumble dryer at a launderette.

You should always wait in the launderette while your garments are being cleaned, to keep an eye on the wash cycle and avoid the possibility of someone stealing your items.

If you leave your clothes unattended, then someone else may move your garments and dump them somewhere, because they want to use the washing machine or tumble dryer next.

So, it is important to be responsible with your garments when you are at a launderette and be respectful of other people’s personal belongings.

Can you wash duvets at a launderette?

Yes, you can wash duvets and pillows at a launderette.

You should wash them in a bigger washing machine on a gentle cycle.

You can also put washing machines and pillows in the tumble dryer at a launderette, on low heat.

After any bedding items have been washed, make sure they are fully dry before you put them away, to prevent mould and mildew from growing in the damp.


Do you need fabric softener when you are doing laundry?

No, you don’t necessarily need fabric softener when you are washing clothes. Just using washing powder or laundry detergent will suffice.

But, fabric softener makes your clothing softer and wrinkle-free. It also helps your garments smell fresher and helps protect them from wear and tear, which helps them last longer.

However, there are some fabrics that are unsuitable for fabric softeners, such as athleisure and workout clothing. These garments are moisture-wicking, to remove sweat quickly and keep it from saturating. So, fabric softener can’t be used on gym gear, because it can clog the fabric’s pores and break down its wicking abilities.

Additionally, fabric softener builds up on garments over time, which creates a barrier to soap and water. So, you may discover that there is always a layer of fabric softener on your clothes, which is stopping your clothes from being cleaned.

What is a front-loading washing machine?


Once you have found where is the nearest launderette to you, you will probably use a front-loading washing machine.

This is a washing machine where you load clothes through an opening that is located at the front of the machine. It usually comes with a glass panel door and a separate detergent drawer, which you load with your washing powder or detergent.

What is a top-loading washing machine?

Some launderettes have top-loading washing machines.

A top-loading washing machine has a door or opening on the top of the machine, for you to load your clothes in. They are cheaper to buy than front-loading washing machines, but they require more water and detergent.

Top-loading washing machines are less prone to leakage because gravity keeps the water inside the appliance.


We hope that we have helped you find the answer to the question ‘where is the nearest launderette to me?’
