I am trying to identify laundromats in a number of cities in India. Can anyone help?
I am a Relocation Manager for a large multinational company based in the U.S. We have some executives and their families (spouses, partners, kids, etc.) moving to quite a few cities around the world later on this year. It is part of my job to help the families sort out some details.
Self-service laundromats are the first thing on my to-do list. I need to identify:
1) Self-service or coin-operated laundromats only (where they can wash/dry their clothes themselves).
2) Larger machines (and the more the better).
3) 24 hour laundromats (this is preferable but not required - longer hours of operation are better).
Here are my cities:
Mumbai / Calcutta / Delhi / Chennai / Bangalore / Hyderabad / Pune / Ahmadabad / Surat / Kanpur
If anyone in the community has any reliable knowledge about any laundromats in any of those cities, please let me know. It would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
I doubt you will find coin operated laundromats in India.... i dont know much but i believe i can answer for mumbai, having lived my entire life here...
In mumbai, you can find dry cleaners and dhobis.... dhobis wash, dry and iron the clothes and if necessary, they will deliver it your home and they charge anywhere between Rs. 5- Rs.50... depending on the cloth..
but they aren't available 24 hrs neither are dry cleaners and dhobis wash the clothes with their hands and they a small cricket-bat like thing to beat the clothes...
Most indians wash their clothes at home... we usually have a small washing machine at home and another solution is to keep a househelp to wash the clothes.. they charge around 500-1000 rs./ month depending on the quantity of clothes...

As far as Bangalore city is considered, we do have something called laundromats but the problem is its not self serviced. They collect the clothes from the customer and wash it for them using their washing machines. The service is cheap and the clothes are charged based on weight per wash. Hope this helped. :) almost 3 years ago
