Snap Laundromats at Taringa & Paddington are family owned. Family is very important to us – that’s why we’ve worked hard to ensure that our laundromats are relevant & suitable for today’s modern families – small or large!
Our laundromat motto is FAST, EASY, CLEAN: we strive to provide a welcoming & clean laundry environment that is a first choice option for families that even have a home washing machine. Here’s a list of family friendly options that our laundromats offer:
Family size washing machines & dryers. We know that families can produce a lot of washing! Snap offers big, family-sized machines & dryers. Save your home domestic machine (and your sanity) and load up the Double or Triple Loads instead – they are fast (only 25 minutes), easy (free detergent is automatically provided) and clean (we maintain our machines & dryers everyday!)
- Big choice and variety. Snap offers a variety of washing machines sizes to suit: small single top loaders to massive MEGA front loaders. If you need to do lots of smaller loads – try using multiple Double Loads for $6 each. If you have big items – like doonas or blankets – give the MAXI at Taringa or the MEGA at Paddington a go. MEGA can take up to 23 kilograms of washing!
- Mild detergent for sensitive skin. My daughter suffers from sensitive skin allergies, so I am well aware of many family’s requirements for gentle, hypoallergenic detergents and cleaning products. At Snap, we installed an automatic dosing system which automatically injects high quality, mild detergent into the machines with every wash. You only need a small amount of high quality detergent to experience the perfect wash; and this provides a tolerable experience for those with sensitive skin!
Free Wifi to entertain all the family. Need to distract the kids while waiting for the laundry? Snap Laundromats offer free WiFi – horray! – so the kids can happily play online games or watch videos while waiting with you.
- Pram friendly. Snap Laundromats are flat, at street level, offer wide doorways and easily accessible for prams.
- Breastfeeding is Welcome Here. Snap Laundromats are approved members of the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA)’s Breastfeeding Welcome Here program. For mothers with babies or young children, we provide a smoke free, friendly & safe environment (with room to move a pram) to support breastfeeding.
- Coffee is the Key. If you are like me, the only was to survive a hectic family schedule is with good coffee! Luckily, both our laundries are conveniently located next to some of the best coffee shops in Brisbane. Try Place of Stones at Taringa or one of the many cafe options at Paddington. I’m a huge fan of the quirky child-friendly cafe SassaFras up on Latrobe Terrace, in a great spot near Woolworths, for when I need groceries too. You won’t be disappointed!
As you can see, we have lots of options for busy families at Snap Laundromat. Pop down to one of our laundries at Taringa or Paddington, and give it a try! You’ll see how easy family laundry can be.
