Why You Should Consider Using a Laundromat

why using a laundromat

Here are a few reasons why you might consider bringing your laundry to our laundromat, rather than doing it at home.

Spend Less Time Doing Laundry!

A study from Lund University in Sweden found that the average Australian household does 2.5 loads of washing per week. 85% of people in the study reported that they did 4 or more loads.

If you’re part of that 85% hold on tight, we are about to show you how you can save at least 2 hours per week by doing your laundry at a laundromat, rather than at home.

Australians who do 2 or more loads of washing per week are spending at least 3 hours doing laundry! According to mrappliance.com, the average domestic washing machine has a capacity of 6.5 kg and an average cycle can take 50-60 minutes, while the average drying time for a load of washing using a domestic machine is 35-45 minutes.

Our Dexter commercial washing machines take just 24 minutes to wash your clothes and our commercial dryers can have your washing dry in 35 to 48 minutes. Since we have multiple machines at our store, the most you’ll wait to complete the average load of washing is just 1 hour.

So there you have it, 2 hours of your week that you can have back on us 😉

Make Laundry Day a Social Affair

Looking for ways to make more time to spend with family or friends? Why not put a crew together and make visiting the laundromat part of your weekly routine? Head down to Nina’s Laundrette, put your washing on and then head out for a coffee at one of the many cafes nearby.

And the best part. By doing your laundry with your friends you’ll never get that sinking feeling you get when you forget that you’ve left your washing in the machine.

Wash Bigger, Bulkier Stuff

Domestic washers and dryers aren’t built to wash the big stuff. Washing doonas, towels and curtains isn’t a problem for our commercial laundry equipment. So don’t keep putting off washing bulky items, bring them with your weekly wash to Nina’s Laundrette and get it all done at once.

Reduce Your Environmental Footprint

Did you know that the average 6.5kg domestic washing machine can use up to 140L per cycle?

Our Dexter Commercial washing machines only use between 80L (9kg machines) to 120L (13 & 18kg machines). If you’re looking for ways to reduce your impact on the environment, why not consider taking your laundry to a laundromat. Convinced?
