The easy way to wash your Doona

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.

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 25 minute wash.

You don’t even need to bring detergent – at Snap, we automatically inject high quality, mild & free detergent.

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.
