Like sleeping through an entire night or making a Thanksgiving turkey for lunch, laundry is a necessary but often time-consuming chore. Tame your to-do list with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of coin-operated laundry or fluff-and-fold service at The Washboard.
Located near San Diego State University, The Washboard's newly remodeled facility welcomes DIY launderers with a host of new coin-operated washing machines and accepts sullied clothing by the pound as part of its drop-off service. Washer pricing varies by capacity, water temperature, and speed, consuming fewer quarters for a quick two-load cleansing ($1.50) than a hot, 6.5-load cycle of soiled ramen noodles ($6). Three-load dryers ($0.25 for 12 minutes) tumble garments into toasty, arid submission, and a wall-mounted flat-screen TV and free WiFi entertain patrons in the interim. Helpful attendants wash and dry shirts, pants, linens, and towels ($0.95/lb.) and fold them into origami tributes to Michelangelo's David.
