2 Boys Laundromat


My go-to spot for all of my laundry needs is 2 Boys Laundromat. I started going there because of its convenient location, but I really like their services. Basically, I drop off my laundry in the morning and pick it up after work folded, pretty and fresh. I only just realized they offer pick-up and drop-off services (laundry done within 24 hours). That would seem kind of lazy for me as they are a block away, but I would consider it if I had way too much to carry and no help. (Available all day; call 201-984-2643.) They service all of Hudson County and offer dry-cleaning too, though they outsource it so it may take a few days longer.

I love this particular line of their site:  “We are committed to bring unique, reliable, stress free weekly or bi-weekly laundry services to your doorstep. As a result, we are dedicated to helping you maintain a healthy lifestyle balance by removing laundry from your to do list.” They even guarantee you will have at least 3 hours of more free time by using their services.

Felix, a.k.a. the Panty Man (my nickname), only employs the best. When something does go awry, Felix is quick to help out (besides the discalimer that they are not responsible for lost or damaged clothing)

Location: 85 Reservoir Ave. (corner of Lineau)

Hours: M-F 7:30am to 9pm; SAT: 7am to 9pm SUN: 7am to 7pm (Last wash M-S is 7:45pm)
