Cheap laundry

Am staying in Sandton soon and hoping to avoid the outrageous price all hotels charge for washing.

Any ideas on reliable and cheap Laundromat nearby, or other washing washing service?

Cheers

I am certainly no expert on Launderettes.

My daughter had occasion to use one recently, and was horrified at the cost.

It seems that the hotel service may actually be cheaper (based on hearsay, not personal experience).

I would have thought that with the current favourable ( for visitors) Euro/rand exchange rate, laundry costs would be a non issue.

However, I did a little web searching, and this is what I found.

There may be others, but Isuggest that your best bet, would be to look in the Yellow Pages when you are in Sandton.

I'd definitely check your hotel first. If you are in a serviced apartment it is possible they will do the laundry as part of your rate.

Hi there, we had great success with Mario at The Village Wash Launderette. His phone number is +27 76 789 1260. They primarily do commercial washing, but in a pinch we called him up and he picked up our laundry and had it returned washed and folded nicely the next day. The price was very reasonable and per kg, rather than per piece like at a hotel. He's open to private laundry services so recommend you give him a call to find out availability. Good luck!

Surely you could have washed your own socks, and "smalls" yourself, in your hotel bathroom.

I do, and so do many, I expect :)

Look to drop off laundry at just laundry but Google maps gave me a bad address. Found a good laundry service at Laundry Corporation at 140 Eleven the street for wash &fold delivery back to Marriott hotel.
