DIY coin-op

Coin-op washing machines

Do it yourself

Our washing machines and tumble dryers are coin operated so there is no need for an attendant.

You are welcome to use our washing and drying machines anytime between 8.00am and 8.00pm (Last wash at 7.00pm). However, the launderette is only attended between the hours of 8.00am and 1.00pm, so outside of those hours you will need to bring the exact change in coins as nobody will be available to give you the right change.

Chalk board and notice board at Fairfax LaunderetteYou are welcome to stay while your wash is in process and we have some books and play things for kiddies to keep you occupied.

You can also set your machine going, then nip out and do your shopping and collect your items when you get back.

If you do not have any coins, our attendant can change cash and accept card payment between the hours of 8.00am – 1.00pm.

Our closing time is 8.00pm, so our last wash time is 7.00pm.
