The Verdict

Sydney is now home to Australia’s very first planet-focused laundromat.

Dubbed laundrlab, this next generation spin on o the ol’ wash n tumble dry is entirely green, offering up a new style of efficient and luxe self-service, bag wash, pick-up and delivery services too. As the first of its kind, it’ll come as no surprise that laundrlab’s main goal is to change the way you think about your washing and highlight how much energy is consumed when you usually do your laundry.

As the brainchild of co-founders Carlos Ojeda and Toby Dankbaar, laundrlab is an environmentally and health-friendly laundry venue, which gives a whole lot of love back to the planet, not to mention, it’s pretty slick-looking too. The washing machines here use a savvy app to control wash loads and all detergent and washing extras are kind to the world too.

“laundrlab was created to change the perception of cleaning clothes by providing a modern, safe and effective environment to do so whilst educating our customers and beyond on the ways we can be more mindful when doing the weekly wash,” Ojeda and Dankbaar said in a statement.

On top of this, the sleek laundromat is filled with natural light, state-of-the-art design and local art. What’s even better is that there’s also a minimalist-style co-working space you can hit (equipped with coffee, sparkling water and free wifi) while you wait for your washing to be done.

As for what services you delve into—the self-service wash means you can do your week’s worth of washing in 30-minutes for $7.50, eco-friendly detergent included. There are also self-serve dryers, which monitor the humidity of your clothes for the perfect drying every time, as well as folding stations, an express bag wash where laundrlab will wash, dry and loose fold for you in under two hours (so you can fit more into your day) and a convenient home pick-up and delivery service.

And there’s still more to be excited about. Laundrlab also sells earth-friendly washing products to help your own washing be that much more green. The store includes everything from cotton laundry bags, the eco-friendly Sonett Bleach Complex and Stain Remover, Ethique Flash! stain remover and Guppyfriend washing bags.
