A good laundromat?

generic laundromatJeff emails:

I would like to know if somebody can recommend a good, clean laundromat in the Latham- Troy area where we can wash a large, white comforter?

If have a suggestion for Jeff, great, please share. And if you happen to have a favorite laundromat outside the Latham-Troy area, we'd love to hear about that, too.

I live in downtown Troy, and before I moved into my current apartment with a washer/dryer (woohoo!) I used to go to Island Wash, which is right across the Green Island bridge (in the plaza with Dunks and Mr. Subb.) It was always fairly clean, fairly priced, had AC in the summer and I hear they've since put in wi-fi. I'd recommend it.

I'm going to recommend Island Wash in Green Island. It's a self-serve laundromat, it's open 24/7, it's got a television and it's in a plaza with a Dunkin' Donuts and a Mr Subb if you're hungry.

Lansing Laundry in Troy. It is very very clean

There's one on Route 2 in Latham, right near the traffic circle. I take my comforter there to be washed, since it won't fit in my machine. It's called Latham Wash and Fold (I think).

"On the Edge" over at TU has a thread on this from November:

(I know because I'm comment #14).

As for the Latham-Troy area, I agree that Island Wash in Green Island is clean and reasonably priced with newer machines.

The Latham Wash and Fold up by the circle is very reasonably priced, but the machines all seem older. It's usually not very busy there, which is nice.

I've been to WAY too many laundromats...
