Clean Clothes, Clean Fun
When most people think of going to the laundromat, they think of 3 hours of hell that they’ll never get back from their life. And really, how fun can sitting in a hot, loud room full of short bus rejects actually be? (Actually I’ve always wanted to open a laundromat that had a live DJ and a bar, but I just don’t have the money to do something like that. If you do, please open it by my house!!) Truth is, unless you use my idea, laundry will probably never be fun. But isn’t there someplace that one can do laundry and be happy? Well, in Orange, there is.
I’ll be honest. I’ve been debating posting about this for over a year now. As much as I wanted to tell everyone about this super cool laundromat, I also wanted to keep it to myself. Most of the time, when I’m there it’s just me or me and 1 or 2 other people. I enjoy not having to wait for that one machine to open that I need, or waiting with damp clothes for a dryer to open up. But posting this on here doesn’t just help you find a better laundromat. It also helps the owners get more business, which is most important. If they can’t pay their bills and have to shut down, where will I go??
My favorite part of the laundromat is not the cleanliness, emptiness or closeness, but the friendliness. I won’t lie, the people who come here aren’t too different from your average laundromat (good or bad…you decide) but the best part is the lady who works there. Next to the detergent dispenser is a little room behind a caged door. Here sits this nice lady waiting to either help you if you’re not sure how the machines work or to provide you with change because you forgot to break the $20 bill before you came. She greets everyone with a big smile and a “HELLO! Welcome! Good to see you again!” I love her!
So if you’re unlucky enough to not have your own washer/dryer or you live in an apartment that is either too busy or, in my case, has terrible equipment, and you find yourself needing to visit a laundromat, go to Laundry Club! Maybe we’ll see each other there and can sit awkwardly near each other smiling but not talking. Because we all know you NEVER talk with people at the laundromat. Or at least, that’s how it seems.
