    Chris, while what you say is true, most shop owners don’t/won’t have the energy, motivation, or drive to go down to the laundromat every week. However, shortly before I sold our shop, washing shop towels and uniforms ourselves is exactly what we did. I guess I could say that money being tight gave me enough energy, motivation, or drive to go down to the laundromat every week. 🙂

    We only purchased enough linen supplies to last us only 3 days. That had us going down to the laundromat twice a week. Once we got the hang of it, it really wasn’t that bad. I learned cheap detergent is a non-starter. We bought Tide which was the highest-priced at the grocery store. Having 2 guys handle it at the laundromat made it go faster. If I had not found a buyer for our shop so quickly, I was toying with the idea of buying a washer and dryer for the shop, along with more linen supplies. But I sold the shop before we did.

    Thanks for the tip!
