Just Arrived! Brand New Washers for Snap Taringa

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.

Kickstart your laundry routine for the new year

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:

  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.
  2. 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!

    Kickstart your laundry pile by using multiple washing machines at once.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
  5. 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!

 

Spring has Sprung at Snap

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 items.

The 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 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!

The washing machines at Snap automatically dispense free, high quality detergent with every wash.

Don’t want to waste the beautiful spring daylight? Our Laundromats are open 24/7, so you can conveniently spring clean when it suits you.

Fast, Easy, Spring Clean!

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. You can load up to 23 kilograms of laundry in the Mega washer at our Paddington store, and as an express machine it’s all done in just 23 minutes.

To save time, many people choose to load multiple washing machines simultaneously – whites in one, darks in a second machine, and delicates in another – so that the entire week’s worth of laundry is all done at once.

The express dryers are also significant time savers.

The Dexter Laundry 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.So, don’t be an Ekka clown! Get your washing done in less than 25 minutes at Snap Laundromats, Taringa & Paddington, open 24/7.

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.
