Tips to wash & dry during the cold snap

Winter has certainly arrived in Brisbane, with the overnight temperatures plummeting! And since winter also brings shorter daylight hours, it can be difficult to wash & dry your laundry loads and winter items.

A quick trip to one of our Snap Laundromats can help beat the cold snap in a number of ways:

1) Wash winter loads in less than 25 minutes

All the front loader washing machines at Snap Laundromat have a large capacity that take less than 25 minutes to complete. The MEGA washer at our Paddington store is also an express machine; imagine getting ALL your laundry done in 23 minutes!

2) Great value winter washing prices!

It’s great value to wash at our local laundromats! All our machines automatically provide FREE high quality mild detergent:

  • $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.
  • $6 Double Load (both stores). Wash single & double doonas; your winter clothes.

3) Dry out using our Express Dryers

If your items can be tumbled dry, the large cylinders of the Dexter Express dryers we have at Snap mean that drying items can be done in a snap vs line drying!

4) Get your laundry done at night – Snap is open 24/7 everyday

We’re open 24/7 so you can do your winter washing when it suits you, and beat the cold snap!

Renovations underway at Snap Laundromat, Paddington

The historical Paddington Coin Laundromat at 284 Given Terrace, Paddington, has joined the Snap Laundromat revolution, and we have exciting plans for it’s transformation. It’s a great location in a thriving cosmopolitan area of Brisbane, and we can’t wait to get started on the upgrade. Here’s what’s coming soon:

  • More machines & dryers – Horray! We are expanding the existing capacity at Paddington, so there will be more (and a bigger variety) of machines to choose from: Mega Load, Triple Loads, Double Loads and single top loaders. More express dryers coming too!
  • Onsite change machine, so that you can easily and conveniently change notes for coins to use at the machines.
  • Free suds automatically dispensed in all the Dexter Laundry front loader machines. No need to bring your own detergent if you don’t want to!
  • NEW! We’ll be creating a Bring Your Own (BYO) section for BYO suds. If you prefer to use your own detergent, you will soon have the option to use our brand new Double front loader for BYO.
  • Free internet WiFi while you wait!
  • New furniture, signage, seating & wall colour coming soon! The fitout at Paddington will be consistent with Snap Laundromat, Taringa. We design & build all our furniture & signage ourselves. That means we’ll be installing our custom made (and famous!) orange tables & stools, we’ll be painting the walls our memorable green & retro orange, and installing our casual signage.
Renovations begin at Snap Laundromat Paddington Brisbane

Renovations begin in May, including the arrival of the new machines and dryers. We’ll be closing the site from Thursday 1 May – Sunday 4 May. Sorry for any inconvenience during that time; you can always visit our Snap Laundromat @ 69 Westerham Street Taringa to see what’s coming soon to Paddington!

Our plans include giving the historical laundromat some love & attention so that it represents our laundry motto – Fast, Easy, Clean – and provides a welcoming & interesting laundry environment for everyone to utilise. We are a very ‘hands on’ team, so Just like at Taringa, we plan to be at Paddington everyday to ensure it is spotlessly clean, reliable & well maintained.

See you at Paddo!
