5 Things to do while you wait for your laundry in Northcote

ways to pass time at the laundromat

Who said going to a laundry in Northcote has to be a tedious chore?

We get it; going to a laundromat close by can take time out of your day. For some, the trip to a laundromat close by can end up being up to 2 hours of washing and drying. 

So why not take the chance to make it more of an outing than just cleaning your dirty socks? 

Nina’s laundrette is near many shops in the gorgeous suburb of Northcote. Of course, while there are plenty of attractions, don’t get too lost. Nina wants to remind everyone to be considerate of others who also need to use the washers and dryers. So have some fun exploring but be conscious of other customers. With that in mind, we’ve put together our top 5 things you can do while waiting for your laundry.

1. Grab a coffee in between washing cycles

Coffee. Of course, this has to be number one. Every Melbournian practically lives of it. Nina’s Laundrette is located at 267 St Georges road, with many coffee shops tucked in all the nooks and crannies. But of course, we have a favourite. I mean, how could you not? Nina’s favourite is the Sherwood North Cafe. Delicious coffee, lovely people, what more could you want?

2. Take a stroll through Batman Park

Location, location, location. Nina’s is right in the thick of it. The stunning Batman Park is only a 7-minute walk away. So why not pack up a picnic lunch, chuck a load on, and take a wonderful stroll through Batman Park? You won’t even feel like you’re doing your laundry.

3. Do a small grocery shop 

We love Northcote. Not only is it full of cute coffee shops, but it’s also home to the conveniences of supermarkets. So if you’re waiting for your laundry, you might as well go pick up those milk and eggs you’ve been meaning to go out and get all week.

4. Netflix and Laundry, duh

What if you don’t feel like leaving Nina’s and want to sit while your socks go around and go, or maybe you are too tired to do anything but that? If you’ve got Netflix, we recommend downloading some shows. That way, you don’t have to use data while waiting for your load. But if you happen to forget to download your favourite show, don’t stress. Nina’s got you covered with free WiFi.

5. Catch up on some work or study at our Laundromat

Nina’s is the perfect excuse to get out of the house, get some work or study done and walk out with clean clothes simultaneously. At Nina’s, we offer free WiFi and desks so you can be productive studying or working whilst being productive and doing your laundry. That’s a big yes from us.

After reading this list, we’ve basically turned doing your laundry in Northcote into a fun time. Who would’ve thought?
