Located a stone’s throw from the Ohio State University campus, Blue Bubble Express Laundromat houses an extensive fleet of clothes-cleansing equipment that thoroughly washes and dries the garments of students and locals alike. Front-loading washers hold 18- to 80-pounds, and efficient dryers carry equally hefty loads. Express washers digitally display the remaining time in each cycle, and many of Blue Bubble Express Laundromat’s Energy Star– and CEE–certified machines use less gas and electricity than regular devices. Wash-and-fold service lets customers drop off bundles for pickup about two days later, or they can wait for clothing to dry on-premises while gazing into three LCD televisions, perusing the information superhighway with free WiFi, or reading a flipbook on the history of fabric softener.
When it comes to footwear restoration, the experts at Enchanted Shoe Repair don't just go through the motions. Instead, they put in the extra effort to return each pair to a like-new condition. In addition to restoring men's and women's shoes and boots to proper walking form, Enchanted Shoe Repair's cobblers extend their savvy hands to such services as custom leatherwork and mending zippers. The technicians can clean and polish a dirty pair of work boots or replace a broken high heel caused by dressing for a basketball game in the dark. The team takes pride in restoring shoes thought to be ruined. The deft technicians also repair purses damaged from overuse and alter any shoe so that it can fit snugly in the mouth of a gossiping enemy.
In business since 1967, the garment caretakers at SunLight Cleaners know their way around a stain. With a combination of laundry service and professional dry cleaning, the crew behind the counter renews clothing, bedspreads, and overcoats, folding them into tidy stacks for patrons to pick up. As efficient self-service machines tumble and dry clothing, patrons can while away the time watching SunLight's DirectTV hookup or basking in the waves of free Wi-Fi.
