OK, big problem - my washing machine has broken down & I can't find a Launderette! The one on TBR has closed (which I knew) my pal said there was one by the Beehive (which there isn't & apparently never has been!) & when I Googled Yellow pages it gave me 1 - in The Cut at Waterloo (way too far to trog with a large plastic bag!) does anyone know of a Launderette close-ish to Bricklayers Arms roundabout? I'm supposed to be going on holiday next week and at this rate it will be in my Pyjamas!
If you need your washing machine fixing try Cooks Electrical Services (Camberwell( T 020 7703 8781. My washing machine broke down, got their details from this site, came the next day, tested it and charged only £20.00. Incidentally, it could've been repaired by Cooks but the man said I might get a year out of it so it probably wasn't worth it! He turned down business!! How honest is that!!
just beware one of the laundrettes on Long Lane - I left a wash there last year, and they melted a number of items - quite a feat when I thought most of the stuff was at least 80% natural fibres! They also made a mess of a set of curtains - told us they had been washed and dried (even though they were actually meant to dry clean them) and then when we opened the bags a few days later, it turned out they hadn't been dried either...not a pretty sight!
Thanks for the advice Julie but the motor has blown so I'm going to have to get a new (or at least reconditioned) one when I get back.
I'll give one on Long Lane a go (& don't worry Claire, I'll wait there & do it myself!)
