4th Street Laundry

For those who know me well, or keep up with me on Facebook (which I hope is one in the same) know how much I love my laundromat.  4th Street Laundry on 400 East and 1700 South in Salt Lake City.  It is clean.  It has plenty of washers and dryers.  The price is right. There is free wi-fi.  My favorite coffee shop is right next store. (Alchemy...another gem...delicious Italian sodas!) And there are places to sit outside when the weather is nice.

I have always loved the laundromat. I've always found it to be a calming place for me.  And I love the fact that I have to set aside time for it.  It forces me to have some chill time and I like that.  (You should like to too; you're getting a blog post out of it.)  Plus I love the way it smells.  Clean clothes.  Fresh laundry. Few smells make me happier.

Today I was reminded again of why I love this place so much.  When I arrived today so did the owner.  It is not unusual to see him here.  I see him almost every time that I do my laundry.  Whether he is here cleaning, upkeep for the machines, or he has come to help a customer with an issue.  Today he was here because a customer lost some change to a machine.  As he got out of his car he saw me and waved and came over and asked how I was doing and then held the door as I carried my laundry in.  He found the couple who lost their change.  Got it back for them and gave them a free load of wash.  They told him how much they love this place and that they will be telling all their friends. I smiled and said, I gush on Facebook every single time I come here.  The owner was so appreciative of the praise and had the biggest smile on his face.

You guys...seriously...for those who have a washer and dryer...if you ever had a laundry emergency or need to wash your comforters...4th Street Laundry is the place to go.  And for those of you who need a laundromat...this is the place to come.
