description/mission statement:
A case of monkey see monkey do, a geocacher new to waymarking found three self service coin operated categories like binoculars, car and pet washes, but could not WM a coin laundromat, so this group was formed to discuss the potential addition of a category for Self Service Coin Operated Laundromats. *†*†*†* From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. A Laundromat in Philadelphia that opened in 1947 and is believed to be the first coin-operated laundromat in the United States. A self-service laundry, coin laundry, laundromat or coin wash is a facility where clothes are washed and dried without much personalized professional help. Laundromats are known in the United Kingdom as launderettes or laundrettes, and in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand as laundromats (from the genericized trademark of the Westinghouse Electric Corporation) or (rarely) washaterias. It is known that George Edward Pendray was the one to create the term "laundromat" for Westinghouse. While most homes do have their own washers and driers, laundromats are still very popular with some apartment dwellers and those who do not own their own machines. They are also used, even by those who own their own machines, for large bedding and other items that ordinary residential washers cannot accommodate. Most UK households have bedding (such as duvets and comforters) which are far above the capacity of domestic machines, making launderettes the only means available for cleaning them.

open enrollment: ON
