At Snap Laundromat, we have some unique ideas and gifts for this Mothers Day:
Give Mum a break and do her laundry! Try our big machines & express dryers for Mum’s washing. We provide FREE high quality detergent, free WiFi and ‘pay by mobile’ to make it easy. You can get all the laundry done – washing & drying – in less than 1 hour at Snap.
Why not give Mum a laundry Gift Certificate? OurGift Certificates allow you to pre-purchase credit on self service laundry services. They are very popular gift ideas for Mothers Day, valued at $20 or $50. An easy and useful gift to give Mum.
Treat her out, including a delicious breakfast at Place of Stones (Mothers Day bookings are essential) next to our Taringa store, or healthy Indian dinner at the ever-popular Its Mirchi next to our Paddington store.
You can wash your Doona for $16 or less at our laundromats (Taringa or Paddington), using FREE high quality detergent!
Most doonas can be machine washed. The front loaders at Snap Laundromat are ideal, as they have a big bowl capacity (in comparison to household washing machines) and there is no agitator to get in the way or the doona to get caught on.
You don’t even need to bring detergent – at Snap, we automatically inject high quality, mild detergent with every wash. FREE!
Doona Wash prices:
$16 Mega Washer (Paddington store). Can wash 23 kilos & ideal for washing multiple king or queen size doonas at once.
$14 Maxi Washer (Taringa store). Can wash up to 20 kilos & perfect for King & queen size doonas and other large items.
$9 Triple Load (both stores). Great for washing Queen / Double / Single size doonas & blankets.
Regular cleaning of your doona will ensure it’s longevity & warmth. Importantly – a thorough clean is the only way to remove the oils, skin cells and dust mites that naturally accumulate with use or storage.
Simply check your doona’s care instructions, and pop in to Snap Laundromat for a quick wash. Our washing machines take less than 25 minutes to finish!
Have you washed your sleeping bag since last camping trip? Keep it clean and in top condition with these quick & easy laundry steps:
Always check the washing and care instructions. Most sleeping bags can be washed but you need to be sure before you proceed.
Select a large front loader washing machine. Avoid using a top loader, as the drawstring and straps of the bag can get caught or tangled on the agitator.
Zip the bag up and place in the front loader.
Select Cold Water (gentle) wash. At Snap, we installed an automatic dosing system which automatically injects high quality mild detergent into the machines with every wash, so there is no need to add detergent.
Avoid fabric softeners and bleach, especially with down bags (you don’t need to expose yourself and the environment to the chemicals in softeners and bleach if you don’t need to!)
When complete, get the sleeping bag carefully out of the machine and place in a basket to take home to dry, or use one of the express dryers.
For many sleeping bags, it is possible to use a large dryer like the ones at Snap, where the bag can freely tumble around. While this is suitable for most sleeping bags, read the label carefully before you proceed.
Set the tumble dryer setting to low.
Ensure that the bag is not still soaked (allow drip drying first).
Placement of one or two tennis balls in the dryer can assist in ensuring even distribution of down or filling while the bag dries.
Tumble dry at low setting only. Check regularly and remove as soon as it has dried.
Make sure your bag is completely dry when packing in it’s bag.
Typical Australian households can expect to spend approximately 15 hours per week doing laundry chores – yuck!
This is where Snap Laundromats can help:
Wash in less than 25 mins using Snap’s stainless steel washing machines.
Our HUGE machines fit more washing – Our Dexter front loader washing machines have a huge bowl capacity compared to domestic machines. Our customers can wash double loads, triple loads or even 5 plus basket loads in our MEGA washer. The MEGA washer can take up to a massive 23 kilograms and is perfect for huge items like doonas, blankets and curtains.
Wash multiple loads at once! Get a week’s worth of laundry done by loading multiple washing machines at the same time. All the washing is done in less than 25 minutes rather than all day long. Bring clothes, sheets, towels – bring everything – and wash at the same time.
Express drying – our Dexter dryers have the reputation for being the industry’s best performing dryers. A standard load of washing can be dried in less than 30 minutes, compared to household dryers that can take well over an hour to dry.

Eliminate your laundry pile and kickstart your laundry routine with the efficiency & convenience of Snap Laundromats!
Here’s 5 ways we can help to kickstart you laundry routine this year:
Save time with 25 minute washers. Yes, really! All of the stainless steel front loader washing machines at Snap Laundromats, including the huge Maxi and Mega washers, take less than 25 minutes to finish. Home domestic machines just can’t match this speed & efficiency.
Load many machines at once. Save time by loading multiple washing machines simultaneously – whites in one, darks in a second machine, and dedicates in another – so that an entire week’s worth of laundry (or more) is all done at once. A great time saving idea for big families!
Get a higher quality wash for better results. Our Dexter front loaders use a natural tumbling action – rather than relying on a mechanical agitator – to offer a higher quality wash with lasting results.
You don’t even need detergent anymore: Both Brisbane laundromats are also connected to an automatic detergent dosage system, providing quality mild detergent free of charge!
Cashless payments for your convenience. The digital era has arrived at our laundromats, where you can use a smart phone or tablet to pay and activate the washers & dryers (using Eziwash). We also offer free WiFi.
Snap Laundromats at Taringa and Paddington are OPEN everyday 24/7. We’d love to help you kickstart your laundry routine in 2015!
Be part of the interactive Christmas lights display at Snap Laundromat, Taringa, by helping Santa & his reindeer find the Christmas Tree!
Yes it’s true – we designed this year’s display so that the public can trigger on the lights adorning the 4.2 meter high Christmas Tree at the Laundromat.
This is our second year applying to enter the 4KQ Christmas Lights competition. As a local family business, it’s a great opportunity for us to design & build the lights display with our kids, and see how proud they are to share this with the local community at the laundromat.
We’ve been busily planning, designing and building for this year’s competition. Our kids told us that they wanted our lights display to be “unique”, “memorable” and “interactive”. As our laundry is internet-enabled, we decided that we had the perfect opportunity to allow the public to engage and interact with our Christmas lights when they visit.
You can set the lights ablaze simply by registering and logging in to www.eziwash.com.au/taringa – then activating the lights using your smart phone or mobile device. It’s absolutely FREE! See our easy steps below.
The Christmas tree is custom built by us, and it’s contrasting lights and star are triggered each time someone activates the service, with the additional lights sparkling for approximately 30 seconds.
You can help Santa and his reindeer, also on display at the Laundromat, find the Christmas tree at 69 Westerham Street Taringa.
Place of Stones, next to our laundromat, is open for dinner Tues – Sat inclusive. Why not bring the family, interact with the Christmas Lights while enjoying a fabulous dinner or gourmet pizza from Stones?

Using your local, energy efficient laundromat is a smart way to be eco-friendly by significantly saving on water and energy used on your laundry. At Snap Laundromats, we offer Dexter Laundry washers & dryers – internationally renowned for the water & energy efficiency designs.
Reduce your water waste
After showers, clothes washing is typically the second largest indoor consumer of water in Australian households. According to www.savewater.com.au, 15-20% of all water consumed in the home is used in the laundry, making this room a high consumer of not only water but also energy and detergents.
Significant water savings can be made by simply considering the choice of washing machine to do your laundry. One of the biggest advantages of front loader machines is that they use less water than top loaders, up to 70% less in some cases or 36,000 litres per year for a typical household.
The Dexter front loader machines at Snap Laundromats have a sump-free washer design and flexible water usage settings to help reduce water consumption.
Improve your energy efficiency
Front loaders use a tumbling action to turn and wash clothes, so this uses less energy than the mechanical parts moving a top loader. They are also designed to have higher spin speeds than top loaders, resulting in less moisture in the clothes on completion. This shortens the energy and drying time required by the dryers – therefore reducing greenhouse gases.
At Snap, a standard load of laundry is washed in less than 25 minutes and dried in less than 30 minutes, compared to household dryers that can take well over an hour to dry.
Our laundry has Dexter express (natural gas) dryers, which have the reputation for delivering maximum energy efficiency by balancing heat input, tumble speed, air recirculation, and airflow through large-diameter cylinders.
Water and energy savings means that you can be kind to the environment simply by doing smart laundry.
