Welcome to Meads Laundromat

We have 6 standard washing machines which take a 15lb (7Kg) load (dry weight - about 1.5 times that of a domestic machine). Each machine is started by inserting 4x £1 and 2x 20p coins.

Our 3 large washing machines take a 25lb (11Kg) load (dry weight - nearly 2.5 times that of a domestic machine) and are also ideal for double and larger duvets. Each machine is started by inserting 6x £1 coins.

5 programme options are available on each machine:

  1. HOT - pre-wash, main wash (approx 60), 3 rinses each followed by spin.
  2. WARM - pre-wash, main wash (approx 40), 3 rinses each followed by spin.
  3. SYNTHETICS - pre-wash, main wash (approx 40), 3 rinses, short final spin.
  4. WASH & WEAR - main wash (approx 40), 3 rinses, short final spin. 
  5. COLD -  main wash (ambient temp), 3 rinses, short final spin. 

The standard machines take about 30 minutes for programmes 1, 2 & 3 and around 20 minutes for 4 and 5. The large machines take around 45 and 30 minutes respectively.

We also have a vending machine stocked with biological soap-powder, which accepts 20p coins. Two 20p measures are recommended for a standard wash and 3 measures for a large wash. You are welcome to bring your own detergent and conditioner but please note that hand-wash powder and dyes are not permitted.

You will find instructions on the machines and posted on the wall - please follow these to ensure you obtain the best results.
