Pregnancy (huh, what's this have to do with a laundromat?) can be a challenging time, bringing about unusual imbalances in the body, etc. We were trying to deal with a problem that an allergist suggested "could possibly" be due to dust mites, and as part of our remediation process, we found ourselves wanting to wash our bedding in hotter-than-usual water. 140 degree water is thought to be sufficient to kill dust mites. However, with kids, our home hot water supply is substantially cooler than that, and we weren't going to putter with it. So we figured on a laundromat. And we started calling around.

Interestingly, most laundromats either have no idea how hot their hot water is, or they will say that they keep it cooler than this in order to "save energy" (I would have thought washing in cold or warm water would do that). Candy's replied - without having to "check with someone" - that their water was definitely at least 140.

Got there, and it's a completely unremarkable-looking storefront next to a few others. Nice large parking lot. We walked in and the gal was locking up the counter, which apparently closes around dinnertime. Still, she stopped to chat with us for a bit, suggested a washer size to use (I tend to overestimate), and we found out that the hot water question was fairly common due to the proximity to Alverno's school of Nursing.

The location looked kind of 70's-ish, definitely old, but was very well kept, neat, and while we were there, someone came in and began repairing a dryer near us. Everything looked like it was well-maintained, took coins easily, and most importantly, worked well.
