  • Lighting must be bright especially for 24-hour shops.



Always keep your coin laundry shop clean and tidy. Perform the following tasks daily, ideally before opening hours or during slow periods:

  • Wipe the windows – Clean windows allow customers to see inside your shop.

  • Wash the toilets – Dirty toilets are a big no-no for all businesses.
  • Clean and top up the soap dispensers – Soap dispensers left unclean for a long time may clog up the machine and stain your customer’s clothes.
  • Wipe the folding tables – Customers will not want to fold their clean clothes on dirty table tops.
  • Mop the floors – Dirty floors are a big turn-off. Wet floors are hazardous.

Easy Instructions

It is essential to provide simple and clear instructions on how to use each machine in your store. Stick large labels or notices on the wall at strategic locations. The step-by-step instructions should be clear and easy to follow to create a pleasant experience for customers doing laundry at your shop.
