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.

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.

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.
