My husband has gotten pants repaired at the dry cleaner, and was satisfied with the work.

The laundromat next door to the dry cleaner was a welcome addition when it arrived just a few years ago. Previously, residents in this area -- replete with apartments and mobile homes -- had to travel to Ellicott City or downtown Elkridge to use a coin laundry.

The machines are already showing the inevitable results of abuse. The 50-lb. triple loader didn't want to take my quarters, and the intake was so caked with powdered detergent that even my RINSE cycle was sudsy! And the adjoining 30-lb triple loader stubbornly LOCKED SHUT at the end of the cycle! Fortunately, my burly hubby was there to "persuade" the door open and retrieve my clothes.

We didn't try to use the dryers on this visit, but on previous visits, several of the dryers were out of order and not labeled as such. It was up to the customers to discuss among themselves (and warn the newcomers) which machines were working or not. We lost a few coins in one before somebody stopped us.

Vending machines are available for laundry supplies and cold drinks. Those items could also be obtained from the Food Lion on the other side of the parking lot.

There is a single-seat unisex rest room at the rear of the store. It is a bit spartan, and shares space with some of the water heating equipment.

There are numerous ceiling fans (and an inexplicably unused floor fan), but without air conditioning to blow around, some days that's just not enough. Most folks were starting their loads, then quickly moving outside, or to one of the other shops in the strip (a Chinese restaurant and a sort of Mexican variety mart).

I guess this is about par for the course for a laundromat, and it's certainly more convenient than the options we used to have.
