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.

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.

Family Friendly Laundry in a Snap

Snap Laundromats at Taringa & Paddington are family owned. Family is very important to us – that’s why we’ve worked hard to ensure that our laundromats are relevant & suitable for today’s modern families – small or large!

Our laundromat motto is FAST, EASY, CLEAN: we strive to provide a welcoming & clean laundry environment that is a first choice option for families that even have a home washing machine. Here’s a list of family friendly options that our laundromats offer:

  • Family Friendly Laundry, Family Laundromat, Snap Laundromats Taringa Paddington Brisbane
    Lots of options for busy families at Snap Laundromats, Taringa & Paddington

    Family size washing machines & dryers. We know that families can produce a lot of washing! Snap offers big, family-sized machines & dryers. Save your home domestic machine (and your sanity) and load up the Double or Triple Loads instead – they are fast (only 25 minutes), easy (free detergent is automatically provided) and clean (we maintain our machines & dryers everyday!)

  • Big choice and variety. Snap offers a variety of washing machines sizes to suit: small single top loaders to massive MEGA front loaders. If you need to do lots of smaller loads – try using multiple Double Loads for $6 each. If you have big items – like doonas or blankets – give the MAXI at Taringa or the MEGA at Paddington a go. MEGA can take up to 23 kilograms of washing!
  • Mild detergent for sensitive skin. My daughter suffers from sensitive skin allergies, so I am well aware of many family’s requirements for gentle, hypoallergenic detergents and cleaning products. At Snap, we installed an automatic dosing system which automatically injects high quality, mild detergent into the machines with every wash. You only need a small amount of high quality detergent to experience the perfect wash; and this provides a tolerable experience for those with sensitive skin!
  • Snap Laundromat , Breastfeeding is Welcome Here, Australian Breastfeeding Association, ABA, Brisbane Taringa and Paddington
    Breastfeeding is Welcome Here! We provide a friendly & safe environment for breastfeeding while you wait for your laundry.

    Free Wifi to entertain all the family. Need to distract the kids while waiting for the laundry? Snap Laundromats offer free WiFi – horray! – so the kids can happily play online games or watch videos while waiting with you.

  • Pram friendly. Snap Laundromats are flat, at street level, offer wide doorways and easily accessible for prams.
  • Breastfeeding is Welcome Here. Snap Laundromats are approved members of the Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA)’s Breastfeeding Welcome Here program. For mothers with babies or young children, we provide a smoke free, friendly & safe environment (with room to move a pram) to support breastfeeding.
  • Coffee is the Key. If you are like me, the only was to survive a hectic family schedule is with good coffee! Luckily, both our laundries are conveniently located next to some of the best coffee shops in Brisbane. Try Place of Stones at Taringa or one of the many cafe options at Paddington. I’m a huge fan of the quirky child-friendly cafe SassaFras up on Latrobe Terrace, in a great spot near Woolworths, for when I need groceries too. You won’t be disappointed!

As you can see, we have lots of options for busy families at Snap Laundromat. Pop down to one of our laundries at Taringa or Paddington, and give it a try! You’ll see how easy family laundry can be.

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.
