Coin laundries are known in the United Kingdom as launderettes or laundrettes.

In the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand  coin laundries are known as laundromats. George Edward Pendray created the word "laundromat" for Westinghouse.

In Texas the word "Washateria" is used.


The evolution of self-serve laundry services have been seen in "wash n fold" services such as Daisy's Launderland and Daisy's SuperWash provide for their customers. These services provide the customer with wash, dry, and folding services on a per pound basis.

Daisy's even offers pickup and delivery as part of their customer appreciation.
