Best Laundromat Names

Posted by admin on June 6, 2007


Writing about the dog wash Laundromutt (below) reminded me of SF’s hippest laundromat/cafe, Brainwash. It has sleek machines, live music, and you can score crack right outside. I love the wildly colorful chairs, which are so cool, most of them have been stolen. (BTW, the chair artist, Melisssa Hutton, has a piece in the Eat My Words wall-to-wall art collection. My favorite laundromat name is Sit ‘n Spin, which was in Seattle’s hip Belltown neighborhood. They carried the concept through with shelves of campy board games and plenty of living room furniture for lounging around while your clothes dried. (I just read that they closed two years ago. And now a laundromat in The Castro is using the same name. What’s up with that?)
