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.
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!
Snap Laundromat at Taringa has internet-enabled the washing machines and dryers, which means our customers can pay for self service laundry services with their smartphones or mobile tablets!
We’re proud to assert that Snap Laundromat is the first self service Laundromat in Australia to offer customers this type of payment convenience.
Three months ago, Snap founder Ian McFarlane established technology startup, Eziwash.
And using Eziwash is Ezi! You simply access the service by first registering an account and logging into the Eziwash website. No downloads are required. Top up your account using the PCI compliant credit card payments available through payment provider Ezidebit. Then operate any of the internet enabled machines using your mobile phone or tablet.
“It’s no longer a drama if you don’t have any cash handy to wash your doona,” Ian said. “Laundromats are very traditional, relying on coin payments for services.
“We felt it was time to evolve the way our laundries accepted payments, so that we could better meet the demands of today’s online and mobile consumers.”
“Today, when I watch customers at the laundry using this technology so naturally and as part of their every day life, I can’t help but think how long it has taken for something so simple to be a reality. Digital innovation can provide a new level of payment convenience, and it’s exciting to be a part of it.”
Eziwash provides payment convenience in an age where technology and smart phones are part of everyday life. Many industry trend sources confirm that Australian consumers are increasingly opting for digital payment methods over cash. See the report released by the Australian Payments Clearing Association.

It’s been a huge effort, but we’re proud to say that the transformation of the historical Paddington Coin Laundromat is now complete. Our second Snap Laundromat in Brisbane, located at 284 Given Terrace Paddington, is fully equipped and operational 24/7.
If you haven’t already, come and check out the renovations and exciting changes. You’ll find:
More washing machines. We’ve added more Dexter Laundry stainless steel front loader machines, also offering more variety including Double Loads, Triple Loads and the MEGA washer (perfect for winter doonas & covers, blankets, thick sheets & towels, quilts or comforters).
FREE automatic detergent injection. You don’t need to buy or bring your own detergent now – we have installed an automatic detergent dispensing system that injects high quality detergent with every wash. Absolutely free!
NEW express dryers. Paddington now offers 8 express dryers – perfect for wet weather or winter drying needs.
Bring Your Own (BYO) suds too, We’ve introduced a BYO section at Paddington – if you prefer to use your own detergent, customers now have a choice to use the brand new LG Double Front Loader or the Top Loaders (for single loads).
Bright & clean fitout & furniture. The laundromat has been transformed with new colours, signage, furniture & fitout. The renovation was a real family affair, including assistance from Michelle’s 85-year-old grandfather (Ga Ga) who helped paint the interior.
Change Machine available. A change machine is now available onsite, making it much easier on laundry day!
Free WiFi. You can enjoy laundry time again by using our free WiFi while you wait.

We offer our famous orange tables & stools to comfortably support the use of your laptops etc.
Our sincere thanks to everyone who helped us with the renovations and continue to offer so much encouragement & support. We could not have done it without you!

We have lots to offer students, including reliable & fast machines, free detergent, free WiFi and we are always open – 24 hours 7 days.
At Snap Laundromat, we are the closest coin laundry to the University of Queensland’s St Lucia campus. So what does Snap Laundromat have to offer uni students? Heaps! Check out our list below:
Accessible location – do your laundry between lectures! Snap is the closest self service coin laundry to the UQ campus, and centrally located to the suburbs of St Lucia, Taringa and Toowong. The laundry is easily accessible from the Taringa train station (approximately 5 mins walk), bus stops are directly outside, and there is ample street parking available directly outside. Lots of students even cycle to our laundromat! Snap is located so conveniently to the uni that many students visit the laundry to do their washing in between their lectures for the day.

Free detergent. We have installed an automatic dosing system so that the correct amount of detergent is automatically injected into all the front loader washing machines. That means you don’t need to lug your detergent with you! It also means that you won’t accidentally over-suds your washing, resulting in a poor quality wash. Less detergent is also better for the environment.
Save Time. Our Dexter front loader washing machines take only 25 minutes to complete their cycle, and have a huge bowl capacity compared to domestic machines.

Environmentally friendly. The environmentally friendly qualities of our laundromat are extremely important to us. The Dexter front loaders use significantly less water and energy; the Dexter dryers have the reputation for delivering maximum energy efficiency. They also require far less detergent, which is better for the environment.
Breakfast, meals and coffee. Place of Stones restaurant, next door to our laundry, services delicious meals, pizzas, snacks and coffee to enjoy while you wait. This restaurant is extremely popular with students. Try their amazing breakfast pancakes!
