Interestingly, I think I have only ever seen one laundromat. Ever.

Have you ever been to a laundromat?

I've passed by a few but never been in one.
Yes when I was a student I lived in a hall of residence and there was a laundry attached for us to use. Some of the other students had never used a washing machine before and had to be shown what to do..... I found it quite baffling how they could have been so molly-coddled!
Then my first flat after graduating was little more than a bedsit in an attic, so I didn't have a washing machine up there and used a local laundry then too. I've had my own machine ever since then though, much to my relief, though occasionally on group holidays when we've been staying in student accommodation we've had to use the student laundry..... and felt mildly nostalgic and old as a consequence :)
Not a laundramat really, but quite a few caravan park communal laundries.

They've been such a great place to meet people and share travel tales.
Yes - used to use this a lot when we lived in an apartment.
No, not yet.

Many years ago, they were all the go.
They are still around, in certain areas.
Often people would move from place to place, to find work.

I use to use one when I was just 9 years old.(51 yrs ago).
My Mother had a washing machine, but it was hard work as it was done by hand.I remember being told a few times, go and put these clothes in at the Laundromat.
I remember getting the soap power for a coin, and also reading books as I waited for it to finish.
I too have used them, 30 yrs ago...when I had no washer.
Yes. I'm glad I don't have to use one any more though, since with two kids there is a lot of washing to do. The last time I used one was when our washing machine broke down a couple of years ago. The last time it broke down some very kind friends and family let us do a load at their houses.
I've only passed by a laundromat but never used the service. When our machine broke down for a short time, our clothes were hand washed.
Yes, a few years ago when my washing machine broke. I used one for a few weeks until I saved up the money to purchase a new one.
Of course I have -hasnt everyone at some stage of their life!

Circumstances sometimes happen that I have to go though, touch wood, this has not happened since I bought a Miele washing machine which although expensive, is made to last, and does not have problems like cheaper machines.

I always found laundromats very rough on the clothes however

Yes lots of times when I first left home and shared a flat with a friend. They are one of my favourite places, time to read a book, get a cup of tea and switch off for a time. I love the smell,of them :)
When travelling on Tour on West Coast USA & Canada, all overnight stops had laundromats!
We'd put washing in on way to Dinner. When we got to Dessert, hubby would go & put clothes in dryer. On way back to room, collected clean, dry clothes. Did this for 24 nights! Was very happy to have Laundromat, as UK/Europe not so well organised then(1983).
Yes, when the washing machine packed in. And also when I wash blankets.
Yes - many times! Its only been in recent years that I have owned a washing machine :)
Only once, to have 2 donnas, filled with swan feathers I think they were, dry cleaned. We’ve also used them on on 11 cruise ships.
They call them laundries, but they are like mini laundromats! Oh yes, & also in a block of flats in NYC where we were staying with a friend’s daughter, for 3 weeks, in ’09.
Never in Oz. Only overseas.

I have never needed to as yet, even whilst traveling. Our washing machine broke down a few years ago, but we took our washing to my parents, until we could get another machine.
Once.Wanted to wash woollen blanket that was an extra over the doona in winter. Woman ahead of me washed all the dogs gear in the large capacity washer that I wanted to use. Had to go to alternative laundromat to get use of large cap. washer. Hoped that no dogs gear had been in there. Inconvenient.
I can imagine! Arghh!
