So my washing machine broke (gah!). I put it off as long as I could, but when the bathtub was full up of dirty washing I could deny it no more. Time. To visit. The LAUNDRY MAT.
I can’t think laundry mat without recalling that sexy advert from the eighties, yeah this one
Might happen right?
I haven’t hung out in a laundry mat since my backpacker days. And when the house flooded and I had to wash every piece of clothing and linen I owned (that was a long day).
I ventured in. And it wasn’t so bad. There are plants. And artistically painted walls bright with colours. There’s a vending machine with snacks and drinks. Free wifi. And arcade games!!
Oh darn I forgot my washing powder. Or maybe that was just my excuse to start a conversation with the very cute guy doing his washing too. Laundry mat as pick up joint, ever considered that one ladies?
The only thing lacking was air con. With air con I may well have turned the place into my new study.
So how much does it cost for a wash at a laundry mat these days? $4.00. And it only takes 20 mins on the normal cycle. There you have it. My little adventure to the laundry mat.
When was the last time you were in a laundry mat? Have you had any ‘interesting’ experiences in a laundry mat? Do tell, comments please
