Wash and Dry coin operated commercial machines finally in Pattaya

Just one point, I would never use public coin operated laundry machines, because nobody knows what was washed just before your clothes and all the previous washes, those clothes could have contained drug residue, nasty chemicals, blood, grease from a car mechanics clothes etc., etc. Or how often dog blankets or whatever have been washed in the same machine.

 

Not for me, but each to their own of course.

 

 

I guess that you wear mostly yves saint laurent and hugo boss suits ?

 

Because for your 100 thb Singa beer tshirt, it's not a huge risk...

Ever thought of installing a washing machine into your own condo/house or asking the landlord to install one for you if renting or move to a condo/house with one already installed? 

I thought about it but what I really need is a good dryer and it would have to stay on the balcony to vent properly. Also a good one that really works is about 30k the others take forever and use a lot electricity. This place is close by and washing and drying is done in an hour. I can get a quick bite or have a  drink at the aussie bar next door.

They have a good looking operation on Soi Wattboon in Jomtien. The only problem is they keep running out of water.

 

How exactly does a legit business in Jomtien run out of water?  Can't they get as much as they need, and then pay the bill for what they use?  Is there water rationing in Jomtien?

One of these on the balcony does the job for me.

 

It can be folded up and put away when not in use.

I worked on a Compound in Africa, we were in the middle of a civil war and US Soldiers were deployed to protect the compound........God bless them, they pbly saved our lives because when the word got out  that US Army was in the compound, fighting moved to another side of the city but - a week after arrival, we had an outbreak of crab lice, I mean everybody had them.  Crabs do not die in luke warm water and we had community laundry units like the above.  Housemaids washing their uniforms along with our clothes spread the vermin like wild fire...............just saying.  Crab Lice don't die in luke warm water.

They have a good looking operation on Soi Wattboon in Jomtien. The only problem is they keep running out of water. So I ended up using the laundry machines at our condo and then the dryers at the laundromat. It would be quicker if I just used the laundromats machines, but with the facility regularly running out of water it is easier to split the wash-dry operation. Only a little cheaper than just dropping off the wash and having it done for you but when I do it myself it is done in 2 hours versus overnight and the laundry is washed properly.

     That business has changed hands 3 times in 3 years, and the volume has tripled, more now the SnowBirds have flown back to JomTien.  Most of their drying is on racks outside anyway, I pay extra to have shirts and shorts ironed.

     In Africa, we have out house maids iron socks, underwear, towels, sheets everything - because its the only thing that will kill Mango Worms and Tumba Fly Larvae.

Best way is to buy one of those big bags made of the trap material, they are cheap and strong. Also they fit great resting on the step though of the click between you and the handlebars.  
 



Great idea, i have a couple of these already

Some area are notorious for running out of city water, requiring water trucks to refill the wells/tanks
