I am trying to pin point what the attraction of The Laundromat (Laundrette where i’m from!) is. I guess it is fairly retro, but also the idea of something we are all familiar with, being big and industrial looking, and there being lots of them like an Andy Warhol piece. Its the smell as well, its sort of comforting. It makes me revisit times in my life when i used to have to trudge with all my clothes to the laundrette because id totally run out, and also during the middle of a cold wet british winter when it just wasn’t possible for clothes to dry in time, without starting to stink. Having said that, this is the first time i’ve gone in one through choice. I wanted to embrace the crappiness. Its a good contrast.
