Have you spotted Santa Claus climbing the Christmas Tree?

Is that Santa Claus climbing the Christmas Tree outside Snap Laundromat, Taringa?

Looks like Santa has decided to climb the 5.2 meter tree, in order to get a better view of all the children’s homes that he needs to visit on Christmas Eve.It’s the third year that Snap Laundromat has entered Brisbane’s 4KQ Christmas Lights competition, with this year’s display featuring Santa trying to get to the top of the christmas tree.

Don’t miss the wonderful lights display on every night from 28 November, 6pm – 11pm, at 69 Westerham Street Taringa.

Place of Stones, next door, is open for dinner Tues – Sat inclusive. Why not bring the family to spot Santa while enjoying a fabulous dinner or gourmet pizza from Stones?

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

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!

It’s easy & cheap to wash your winter Doona

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.

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!

 

Quick & easy steps to keep your sleeping bag in top condition

Have you washed your sleeping bag since last camping trip? Keep it clean and in top condition with these quick & easy laundry steps:

  1. Always check the washing and care instructions. Most sleeping bags can be washed but you need to be sure before you proceed.
  2. 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.
  3. Zip the bag up and place in the front loader.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!)
  6. 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.

    Use one of the big front loaders at Snap Laundromat to wash your sleeping bag in a snap!

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.

  1. Set the tumble dryer setting to low.
  2. Ensure that the bag is not still soaked (allow drip drying first).
  3. Placement of one or two tennis balls in the dryer can assist in ensuring even distribution of down or filling while the bag dries.
  4.  Tumble dry at low setting only. Check regularly and remove as soon as it has dried.
  5. Make sure your bag is completely dry when packing in it’s bag.Easter camping and wash your sleeping bag Snap Laundromat

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
