Save Time! Laundry is faster & easier @ Snap

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.
  • WiFi while you wait – Use the waiting time effectively by utilising our free & fast internet WiFi to catch up on emails, study, research or Google.

With two Brisbane locations (Taringa | Paddington), our laundries are also located next to some of Brisbane’s best cafes and restaurants – so why not pop your washing in, grab a coffee and start saving time NOW.save time now on laundry at Snap Laundromat Brisbane

 

Kickstart your laundry routine for the new year

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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!

  4. 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!
  5. 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.

Smart laundry saves water & energy to help save our planet

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.

Snap Laundromat is proud to be a Dexter Laundry.

Spring has Sprung at Snap

Brisbane’s famous spring weather has arrived, meaning it’s time to pack away the winter doonas and clothes to make way for warmer weather items.

The big front loader washing machines are ideal for washing larger items before you put them away to store for next winter.

And why not take the opportunity to spring clean your curtains, quilts or summer items at the same time? You can load multiple machines at once at our Laundromats, and as all of the stainless steel washers take 25 minutes or less to complete, you’ll have your last winter wash and spring clean done in no time!

The washing machines at Snap automatically dispense free, high quality detergent with every wash.

Don’t want to waste the beautiful spring daylight? Our Laundromats are open 24/7, so you can conveniently spring clean when it suits you.

Fast, Easy, Spring Clean!

Don’t sleep in a dirty doona!

Did you know that your should clean you doona at least twice during the winter season?

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.

Luckily, most doonas can be machine washed. However, many home washing machines are not big enough to handle a doona. Don’t panic! Our HUGE self-serve front loader washing machines easily do the job.

Best of all, you can wash & dry your doona for less than $20 at our laundromats, using FREE high quality detergent.

Hi Vis washing in a snap

High visibility (Hi Vis) work gear can be difficult to wash at home in a smaller domestic washing machine. The dense fluorescent material and reflective tape can be difficult for top loader machines with an agitator to effectively move around and clean properly. It can feel like a huge waste of time and very frustrating!

Snap Laundromats offer big industrial washing machines that are the perfect alternative. These larger machines and front load tumble action can easily move the clothes around, while still offering a delicate cycle (best for hi vis garments) to ensure excellent long lasting results.

Snap also automatically provides high quality mild detergent with every wash. Mild detergent reduces the risk of fading, which is such an important safety feature of high visibility clothing. Avoid using fabric softeners or bleach with hi vis gear.

Wash your High Visibility clothing at Snap Laundromat Taringa Paddington Brisbane
Our big stainless steel front load washing machines are ideal for washing Hi Vis workgear

Best of all – these big stainless steel machines take just 25 minutes to complete. We have a variety of machines to choose from, including our massive MEGA (takes up to 23 kilograms of laundry) at our Paddington location, or the MAXI (up to 20 kilos) at Taringa so you can wash lots of clothing at once. Don’t forget to grab a coffee, use the free WiFi and relax while the big machines do the hard work for you.

You can get all you hi vis washing done in a snap! Save your washing machine at home & your own sanity – pop in to one of our self serve laundromats and see how easy it is. We’re open 24/7.
