Amid the cheerful orange walls of Extreme Clean Laundry, rows upon rows of advanced, stainless-steel washers and dryers bustle and hum while cleansing vestments. Four jumbo washers scrub loads of up to 60 pounds within 12 minutes, and the massive dryers can tackle up to 75 pounds at a time. A rechargeable-swipe-card system eliminates the need to use up quarters or valuable antique doubloons and three flat-screen televisions tower over the expansive seating area where video games and vending machines abound.
In addition to self-service laundry, Extreme Clean Laundry lets customers drop off their soiled duds. Armed with quality detergents and softeners, staff members meticulously wash, dry, and fold each item, matching socks, spot-checking for stains, and combing through gorilla suits to remove banana remnants.
