The coin laundry chain "WASH House", which has 330 stores mainly from Kyushu to Kansai, has landed in Kanto for the first time. Two stores, "WASH House Shinjuku 7-chome Store" and "Fukagawa Fuyuki Store", opened at the end of July.
The author also uses a coin laundry for drying during the rainy season, but it is dim and a little scary to go alone. While I'm waiting, I'm holding my breath and reading the old cartoon Goraku. There must be some secret to actively developing such a coin laundry. I decided to go with expectation.
To the newly opened Shinjuku 7-chome storeThis time I visited WASH House Shinjuku 7-chome store. It is about a 7-minute walk from "Higashi-Shinjuku Station" on the Toei Oedo Line.
The first thing that surprised me when I entered the store was its brightness. Even in the daytime, it's bright and beautiful as if it were a convenience store. It is spacious with large tables and benches.
You can wash your futon without using detergent!Equipment includes a 7 kg washing machine, a 12 kg large washing machine and dryer, and a washing machine for shoes. All can be washed in the tub before washing, and detergents and fabric softeners are automatically added. This helps because it was a hassle to carry a heavy detergent bottle!
By the way, the company recommends the habit of "washing the futon" , and a large washing machine can wash one futon and pillow at the same time! It can remove dirt from the futon, which tends to be a hotbed for mites and molds.
Full of unique servicesOne of the other nice services is the stain removal corner. You can use the cleaner, brush, and suction machine for free, which is convenient for care before washing.
We also have a call center that is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in case of questions or troubles such as "Can this be washed?" He said that he would remotely control troubles such as "I want to stop the dryer in an emergency" and "Missing coin insertion". The inside of the store is monitored by a webcam, so it is safe to use at night.
I washed my shoes
Since I came here, I decided to wash my shoes. I washed my hands at home last year, but it's not very dirty ...
Of course, no detergent is required for shoes. The dedicated washing machine has a huge brush in the tub, which seems to remove dirt gently and speedily.
After cleaning, put it in a dryer like an oven. Then ... the rubber around the upper, as well as the sneakers that turned white to the bottom came out. The image is still in the process of drying, so it's hard to understand, but it's just like a freshly bought white. If I wanted to be so beautiful, I should have brought sneakers from all over the house ...!
Under a great open campaign!To commemorate the opening, two stores, the same store and the Fukagawa Fuyuki store, are currently conducting a campaign where washing machines and dryers can be used for all 100 yen. It's only available until August 13th, so why not get rid of the troublesome washings during the summer vacation. I want you to make it near my house as soon as possible!
