Launderette with 8kg washing machines Zurich?

Hi there


Does anyone know where I can find a launderette with a large enough machine to take my king size bedspreads? The local dry cleaners wanted to charge CHF100 per item!! and I cant fit the items in my 5kg machine at home.


Can anyone recommend somewhere I can take them? I think an 8kg machine would be big enough.


Thanks


Susie

I have spreads become extremely heavy logged with water, I don't know if a 8 kg machine will cut it.

We've got one in Alstetten too, opposite the Coop in Badenerstrasse. (Not the one at Lindenplatz). Not sure of the machine size, but it might be nearer, or more convenient for you

Express-Wäscherei has a 10 kg and a 17 kg washing machine for duvets, covers and mattress covers:

Der Salon befindet sich direkt an der Haltestelle Kinkelstrasse (Tram 9 und 10), sodass man seinen Waschkorb nicht weit tragen muss. Es ist stets sauber, es sind fast alles neue Maschinen, die meisten 6 kg, eine 10 kg und seit einiger Zeit gibt es eine 17 kg Waschmaschine, dort kann man sogar sein Duvet, Decke oder einen Matratzen-Überzug waschen.

Re: Launderette with 8kg washing machines Zurich?

The dry cleaner in Germany quoted 37 Eur to clean a mattress cover. (single mattress)


Then I looked at my Miele washing machine specs and it will wash up to 8 kg. The mattress cover is washable.(but cannot go in the dryer). I have washed duvets and pillows - I have a special cycle that begins by spinning the air out of these items first.


If an item is washable, I would try that before dry cleaning.
