[Untitled][edit]

I removed the phrase "Facilities which have staff to wash the clothing are sometimes referred to as fluffy-n-foldsie or dropsie-offie services." because the only Google results for those refer to this article. Unless someone can cite their widespread use they should be removed. (I would have put this in the change note but I accidentally hit 'enter' before I could type it in. Ooops.) Matt T.

History[edit]

Could do with a history section. The first launderette must have postdated the invention of the washing machine obviously. Nowadays, they're on the decline, as most households have their own washing machines. Some sourced material, say info about how many launderettes there are in given years, would be useful. Also geography/demography - probably launderettes are more common in poorer areas, but again, sources needed. 94.194.66.92 (talk) 19:43, 31 August 2009 (UTC)
