NEWS! Snap has installed another MEGA washer at Paddington. That means even MORE choice to do those really big laundry loads. There will be no more waiting for our very popular MEGA wash, which happens to be one of the biggest self service washers in Brisbane!
King Doonas, Mattress Toppers, Pillows or just huge loads of socks and jocks are what the MEGA Washer does best (up to 23 kilograms).
The MEGA washers are EXPRESS machines – taking only 23 minutes to complete a full cycle. Pricing is extremely cost effective, just $16 for cold, warm or hot water wash.
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.
Snap Laundromat’s 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 outdoor cushions, 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!
Our MEGA washers have a huge capacity to wash those large household items.
And, don’t waste the beautiful spring daylight – our Laundromats are open 24/7, so you can conveniently spring clean when it suits you.
Wash your big bedding items in our huge front loader machines in 25 minutes or less!
Snap’s stainless steel Dexter washing machines are super fast. All our machines also automatically provide free, high quality, mild detergent with every wash. All prices include hot, warm or cold water wash.
$16 Mega Washer (Paddington store). Our Mega Washers can wash 23 kilos & are ideal for washing multiple king or queen size doonas & heavy blankets at once. Perfect for washing curtains and other large bedding items.
$14 Maxi Washer (Taringa store). Can wash up to 20 kilos & perfect for King & Queen size doonas and other large items such as curtains and blankets.
$9 Triple Load (both stores). Great for washing Queen doonas, pillows, towels and sheets. Wash up to 13 kg!
$6 Double Load (both stores), suitable for up to 10kg and perfect for Double & Single doonas, sheets and towels.
Snap Laundromats are one of the first coin laundromats in Australia to offer customers the ability to pay for laundry services using electronic payments. You can pay by mobile and activate any of the front loader washing machines and dryers using Eziwash.
New Eziwash Feature Alert! Due to popular demand, a new feature in Eziwash allows you to create a secure Ezi Wallet. Having an Ezi Wallet means that you can link your credit card details and choose to top up your account without entering your card details again. This is secure and Ezi!
Importantly, your credit card details are stored in Ezidebit’s secure card vault. At no time does Eziwash have access to your details or take a payment without your permission.
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.
We take pride in providing our customers with well maintained and reliable equipment at our Snap Laundromats. We have recently installed two more brand new, stainless steel, washing machines to compliment the existing fleet of new Dexter Laundry machines at Snap Taringa. These world class Dexter Laundry washers are extremely durable, efficient & reliable machines – and they look great! Check out our photos below of the recent renovations.
All our machines automatically provide FREE high quality detergent with every wash, and are the first laundromat machines in Australia to accept electronic payments.
Pop in and check out these new machines at Snap Taringa – we’re open 24/7!
We are a local, family owned business and we would like to thank our family, friends and customers that support us during renovation times. Special thanks also to Gary from Discount Laundry Equipment, Chris from Snap Paddington, and GC Laundry.
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!
