Oi, laundromats ... when I looked, the only ones I could find (by looking online) were in areas known for their higher-than-usual-crime (mostly car break-ins and such). No thanks, sez I, and was trying to manage by washing everything in the sink. Then the stopper for the sink broke.
Fortunately I mentioned all this to one of my students, who knew of a nice place to go. They even did my laundry for me (for an extra fee, but it was worth it to be able to get my errands run while it was being done.)
