The first Wringer Washer—a machine very similar to those we see in today's laundromat—was invented in 1907. In fact, during the Great Depression Wringer Washers were the first public laundries. Most other laundry facilities back then were a drop-off and pick-up service, similar to a dry cleaner.


The “Wonder Washer” washing machine was manufactured by the Victor Mfg. Co. in the early 1900s. Promoted as the 3-minute washer, it featured a square tub, wooden top that clamped shut, and a hand crank attached to paddles that agitated the clothing.


In 1934, the first known laundromat, called the Washateria, was opened by C.A. Tannahill in Ft. Worth, TX. This groundbreaking self-service enterprise featured four electric washers that customers could rent and use by the hour.


There is a reputation that laundromats have received that is not positive. Many laundromats are actually clean and offer you many advantages such as larger equipment and comfortable seating while you wait.


Want to make sure that you get enough washing machines right when you arrive at the laundromat? Try sorting your laundry ahead of time. That makes it easy to drop your loads in available washing machines right away and claim them.


Did you know that the average American household does over seven loads of laundry per week? Indeed, when you add in drying each of these loads, folding all of them, and putting all of these clothes away, that adds up to eight hours of laundry work per week!


When doing laundry, remember to separate clothes by color as well as by fabric. For instance, towels and fabrics like fleece should be washed separately from smooth dark fabrics that are only going to show every speck of lint after the rinse cycle.


Ever wonder what happens during a washing machine’s spin cycle? While a pump drains the dirty water out of the machine, the drum spins as fast as 1,200 revolutions per minute, wringing out any remaining moisture from the clothes.


Checked baggage fees on airlines can cost anywhere from $25 to $50, and that's only one way. A carry-on bag holds enough for a few days, and can easily be cleaned in a single load. That'll cost you only a couple bucks, much less than $50-$100 in roundtrip baggage fees.


You can find conveniently located laundromats and full service wash and fold companies close to home. This will save you time, money, and effort in the long run while also saving on your electric and water bills.


If you are doing multiple loads at the laundromat, be sure to take them out of the washer or dryer as soon as they are finished, as this prevents lines at the laundromat.


Did you know that the average time a single load of laundry takes to wash and dry at home is 1.5 hours? Fortunately, washing and drying multiple loads of laundry at a laundromat can add up to a huge savings in time.


Did you know that using a laundromat is more ecologically friendly? Home washing machines use 30-40 gallons of water per load, or 2.5-3.5 gallons per pound of clothing. High efficiency commercial washers use as little as 0.5-1.5 gallons per pound of clothing.


Laundromats are a great way to save time while doing your laundry, especially if you have to deal with a laundry room in an apartment building. Laundromats have a large number of machines, which means you spend a lot less time waiting between loads.


While most of us would prefer to do our laundry at home, you would be surprised at how easy it can be to simply use your local laundromat. It’s also a great place to socialize while you get a necessary chore finished.


Since the 1980s, laundromats have not changed much except for the types of machines present, which are now more energy efficient, stackable, and more environmentally friendly.


If you want to keep your freshly laundered clothes from getting wrinkled, be sure to take the time to fold them as soon as you remove them from the dryer. This will also make it easier to organize your clothes once you get them home from the laundromat.


Did you know that doing your laundry at the laundromat saves on water? The average home washer uses about 3 gallons of water per load? However, high-efficiency commercial washers found at the laundromat use only approximately 1 gallon of water.


Super Suds will close early on July 4th. We are open from 7am - 7pm. Last wash at 6pm. Enjoy you holiday weekend. See you Sunday at 7am.


Did you know that early processes of washing clothes in the river actually required special tools: specifically long, thin washing bats, similar to sticks? These were used both for moving cloth around as well as for beating the dirt out of it.


One of the main benefits of doing laundry in a self-serve laundromat is that you can do as many loads as you want, whereas you can typically only do one load at a time at home.


Dryer balls are rubber or wood felted balls that are put into a washer with wet clothes to make them soft and are an excellent and less expensive alternative to fabric softener or dryer sheets. In fact many people swear by them, as they are a cost effective way to soften towels and stiff clothes without the use of any chemicals.


Looking to for a unique experience during a vacation? Doing your laundry at a laundromat can help. While waiting for your clothes to be washed, you can strike up conversations with locals. They can give you tips on good restaurants or unique locations.


The first laundromat started in 1940, and by 1950 there were 4,000 in the US, but they didn't stop there. Today there are 35,000 laundromats across the country. Most of them operate on long-term leases (10-25 years), so you can count on them being there.


Before the concept of washing clothes regularly became common, wealthy people made sure they had lots of household linens, shirts, and underclothing. They just stored up the dirty stuff for future washing.


Back in the 1700s, people dried clothes by spreading them on bushes. In fact, large houses sometimes had wooden frames or ropes dedicated specifically to drying clothes indoors in poor weather.


Did you know that, during the early days of washing clothing, washing and drying were often public or group activities? In fact, in warmer parts of Europe, some cities even provided communal laundry spaces that included a water supply.


How many of us have dreaded the trip to the laundromat? You don’t have to! A great laundromat today offers you many of the comforts of home- including Wi-Fi and comfortable seating so you can accomplish the other work you need to be doing.


In addition to convenience, coin-operated laundromats provide a valuable service. Like food and shelter, clean clothes are considered a basic necessity of life, one that also contributes to the health and well-being of individuals, families, and communities.


What to do if repair costs for the home washer and dryer are too much? Wait on home washer and dryer repair costs and use the laundromat instead to enjoy clean and dry clothes in no time for an affordable price.


Did you know that the first washing machine was nothing more than a scrub board? In fact, the scrub board was rudimentary and hardly machine by today's standards, but it did the job (with plenty of elbow grease!) of getting clothes clean.


You may not realize that you need a laundromat until it’s too late. But when that day comes, you’ll appreciate why a laundromat can be so important. There’s nothing worse than having to cart loads of wet laundry when your own system shuts down.


One advantage of using a laundromat is the large machines you can use, especially if you have large bedding like comforters or multiple sets of sheets.


If you have expensive clothing that needs washing, you could let the professionals handle it. They know how to remove stains and use the appropriate wash cycle in order to keep your clothes in prime condition.


If you end up with several small loads of similar colors but different types of fabrics, you can wash them together. When you do, though, make sure you choose the wash cycle that fits the most delicate item in the load.
