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.
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
If your items can be tumbled dry, the large cylinders of the Dexter Express dryers we have at Snap mean that drying items can be done in a snap vs line drying!
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!
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.
Simpy locate one of our Snap Laundromats (Taringa or Paddington) and follow these simple step-by-step instructions to refresh your doona:
Check your doona’s care instructions. Most can be machine washed but you need to be sure.
Grab $20 of notes or coin (for your convenience, there is a change machine available at each laundry).
Pack your dirty doona in a laundry bag or basket.
Travel to our laundromats at Taringa or Paddington. Street parking is available at both.
When you arrive at the laundromat, look for the biggest front loader machine. MEGA is our hardworking King Doona Washer at Paddington, while MAXI does the big dirty work at Taringa. The Triple Loads can also effectively wash queen size doonas.
Load your doona into your selected washer. Shut & latch the door, ensuring the doona does not get caught in the door and can freely move inside the machine.
Insert coins in the coin slots.
Select WARM temperature wash. No need to add detergent – it’s automatically injected!
Press Start (green button). The machine will start to wash your doona.
Relax! It takes less than 25 minutes for the cycle to complete. You can use the free WiFi, read a book or magazine, or enjoy a coffee next door while you wait.
To tumble dry, select any of our large express dryers. Insert $4, select Low setting and press the green start button.
Wait 28 -32 minutes, checking regularly, for a fresh and snugly doona!
So, don’t sleep in a dirty doona – its easy to wash at one of our convenient, self serve Brisbane laundromats. Wash your doona when it suits you – Snap is always open 24/7.

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.

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!
The cooler nights have started in Brisbane, which means it is time for many of us to dig out the winter doonas, blankets, comforters and quilts.
And since these items have been stored over summer, it’s a good idea to give them a wash and dry to freshen them up. Check the care instructions, as many winter items are machine washable, and that means a simple visit to your local Laundromat rather than using an expensive dry cleaner.
Wash your Big Winter Items in our HUGE front loaders
The front loaders at Snap Laundromat are ideal for larger items as they have bigger bowl capacity in comparison to household washing machines, and there is no agitator to get in the way or get caught on.
My favourite washing machines at Snap are the big ones – the MAXI washer @ Taringa and the huge MEGA washer @ Paddington. These machines are the perfect choice for washing king or queen size doonas, blankets, curtains, comforters, quilts, sheets, protectors, pillows, rugs and towels. All of the front loaders are super fast, and only take 25 minutes to complete. The MEGA washer is an express machine too – so it completes it’s cycle in under 23 minutes.
To compliment these big machines, we installed an automatic detergent dosing system that injects high quality suds into the machines with every wash, so there is no need to add detergent. This means you don’t need to worry about over-suding your doonas and blankets – horray!
Dry your Big Winter items in our Express Dryers
If your items can be tumbled dry, the large cylinders of the Dexter Express dryers we have at Snap mean that drying large items can be done in a snap. Most winter items prefer a low setting in the dryers, but check your care instructions first.
Why not freshen up your doonas and blankets at Snap Laundromat? We’re open 24/7 so you can do your winter washing when it suits you. With two locations now – Taringa & Paddington – getting your winter laundry done is fast, easy and inexpensive.
