Laundrette/Laundry Service Recommendations


Recommended Posts

I tried a service wash in Brockley and it was not good at all so then tried an online one following Jules-and-Boo's suggestion (thankyou).  I tried Love2Laundry.  It was more expensive than a local service wash but the duvets came back clean. So I will use again.  They collect and drop off.

Local dry cleaners may be able to help as well.

Local dry cleaners just use local launderettes, and up the price.

Or at least that's what used to happen at the dry cleaners near the Post Office, according to a launderette.

You used to see the duvets piled up in their window. If they still do this, they must hide them somewhere!

You can't dry clean duvets.

Sounds a good idea - how long did they take to do? When we used Wash and Dry in LL took in morning and  collected late afternoon.

well I've had mine dry cleaned

Maybe the process used has changed then. Or maybe it depends on the filling.

But you certainly didn't used to be able (sorry for bad grammar) to have them dry cleaned, because of the chemicals used.

And dry cleaners did certainly used to (bad grammar again) take them in for cleaning and then just send them to a local launderette.

Without letting on to their customers, obviously!

the launderette on Bellenden Road is pretty good - and a cleaner and less frantic experience than Wash and Dry on LL ever was. But I gather that it's also due to close - the owner is waiting for the buyer to get funds together..

That’s a shame. Do you know what the premises will become?

I’m quite sure the dry cleaner near the Post Office took the duvets to the launderette on LL/corner of Pellatt Road.  One of the women who worked there told me.

Yes, that's the dry cleaner I was thinking of. 

Though I believe they used to take them to the launderette in Lordship Lane on the same side as them, towards what is now the Picture House.

That closed down a long time ago, so possibly after that they used the one at the end of Pellatt Road.

They used to have piles of duvets in their window for all to see (the dry cleaners, not the launderette!)

All gentrified now 😂

Which one was this, just so I know where to avoid?!?

We always have our duvets dry cleaned at the Dry cleaners in Forest Hill (Dartmouth road next door to Bunka)

been doing so for years and they never have a chemical smell and come back spotlessly clean.

In fact he dry cleans all our clothes and they never smell 'chemical'

    • We lost a beloved toy fox on lordship lane, Saturday 2nd march in the afternoon. He has cute green overalls. Was hand knitted and a special gift. If anyone happened to pick him up, we’d be very grateful for his safe return!  Imogen  07791842153.
    • I hope you never run into the last character eating chicken on my bus-he was an older guy, and when he'd finished his food, removed his dentures and picked them clean 😗 I'm still getting over it!
    • We once chose a decorator based on a long history of good reviews on here. It didn’t occur to us that he would ‘outsource’ the work to someone else who did a pretty poor job. Lesson learned. Always check that the person with the good reviews will be actually doing the work.
    • Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT Group but is obliged under regulation to act even-handedly with BT UK and all other of its wholesale customers - that is that all companies supplying services through the Openreach local Network must be treated similarly - so BT Retail has no better, or hopefully worse, access to Openreach as does any other competing company. Openreach has 'passed' much of East Dulwich with fibre to the premises (FTTP) capability.  BT is rebranding all its Retail services to 'EE' (that is, services to private/ residential customers) and I believe to SMEs as well. It is keeping the BT brand as a marketing name for its Major Business business. The maximum speed for FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) services is about 60-70MG to the household router - which is described I believe by some estate agents as superfast, curiously. The real FTTP services in ED are at the moment 500 or 1000MG to the router, and broadly achieve quite close to that, although speeds to the apparatus via WiFi are much less. To get actual benefit of the fibre speed you will need an ethernet network internally.
