Well, don't go there after 5 pm, I got there about 5 pm and due to not reading the directions on the HE washers used too much soap and had to rewash my comforters x 3 to the tune of 2.50/ a load. This caused me to be there till about 7pm and what a show ensued. An obviously high woman was singing at the top of her lungs, badly and at one point a man who was intoxicated to the point of barely being able to walk joined in. He was not doing laundry. Then on my way out to my car, I was lucky enough to encounter the Ghetto Dianna Ross zipping up after taking a toilet break in the parking lot, au natural , and yelling at the aforementioned intoxicated guy who she seemed to think wanted to have sexual congress with her. She zipped up and walked back into the laundry mat without so much as missing a beat. And the "attendant" was a wizened old man who had the time to glare at me when he saw my mistake with the HE washers, remained behind his glass cubicle for the rest of my visit, so why he is paid to be an attendant is beyond me as he never censured the behaviior of the customers.Oh and they advertise that the laundry is under 24 hour survialance..why? what could be worse than a high person singing at the top of her lungs, and then urinating in the parking lot? Oh, breaking into the coin machines...Yeah, god forbid they don't make a profit while you do your laundry with one eye over your shoulder. I would not advise any woman to go alone, and I would'nt advise anyone to go after 5pm.

"last wash @ 11pm"

people come in, stick their clothes in, and start studying. I guess it's nice they offer lots of benches for the poor students who is cramming for finals. I often came in here just because it was on my way home from school and the prices were marginally better than my landlord's washer/dryer. They have metal baskets that you can wheel your damp clothes around it, and the usual array of dispensable detergent and fabric softeners.

It's a laundromat, people come in, stick their clothes in, and start studying. I guess it's nice they offer lots of benches for the poor students who is cramming for finals.

It's also somewhat safe to go in at night, even tho no one is monitoring the joint.

...I might go here. So, maybe it's a little ghetto. Heck, this is south berkeley, north oakland, one shouldn't have too high expectations. I probably wouldn't go at night though, but that's just me...and maybe most other people.

So what if Milt's Coin-Op burnt to the ground under suspicious circumstances? You can still go to the Clothes Spin. Don't like the bar scene? Linger around the Spin long enough and you might find a girl washing a Bauhaus shirt. Then you could ask her what laundry detergent she uses so as not to fade the black. Then you can show her your faded Joy Division shirt. Oh wait, that's my fantasy. Do your laundry in the middle of the night in a public place before it becomes something you can just do online.
