How will launderettes come out in the wash?
Launderettes have been at the heart of communities for decades but despite being deemed an essential service during the coronavirus lockdown, many owners say their businesses are suffering. What does the future hold for them?
From the outside, they look a bit like a waiting room - the occupants gazing quietly at the machines as their clothes whirl round. The turnover of dry cleaning at Drift-In Launderette in Salisbury Road Cardiff has dropped to near zero during lockdown Now there is a nervous apprehension from people not wanting to get close to each other. It's just a hum of the machines, we've seen a 95% reduction in a lot of the student customers who come in on a weekly basis. The word cleaning has taken on even greater meaning now, as people come to terms with living in a society where it has become even more essential since the onset of COVID-19.
