At Absolute Laundry Systems, we study and discuss issues like over-consumption and lack of efficiency, and then we seek real and sustainable solutions through human relationships and technology. We understand that building sustainability in the laundry industry helps millions have access to the basic human needs of cleaniness and hygiene, while respecting our environment. These practices are the basic building blocks of life.

"Anne Buffum transferred her damp clothes from the front-load washer to the dryer's large, gleaming drum at Belmont Eco Laundry, newly remodeled and painted in creamy hues that light up the room even on an overcast morning.
She inserted coins and turned the dryer's knob, starting the clothes tumbling as the machine hummed so quietly that it didn't interfere with her conversation.
"I really love this place," said Buffum, who lives near the laundry at 4725 S.E. Belmont St., which Connie Ihrke recently purchased and turned into an energy-saving, water-conserving business."
"Living a more energy efficient, sustainable lifestyle is not only good for the environment, it also makes great business sense. Just ask Aanen Trelstad, owner of Hyland Eco Laundromat in Portland, Oregon, who believes there is a misconception in the business community that going green is not economical.
“Early on, we made the decision to take any and all steps necessary to maximize the energy efficiency of our new store,” explained Aanen. “By going green, we significantly decrease our consumption of natural resources, which in turn helps our bottom line and gives us the opportunity to pass along savings to our customers.”
"First-time store owner Connie Ihrke was looking for a new career with flexibility and found it in the coin laundry business. She also discovered that the versatility and flexibility of Electrolux Professional machines met her environmental conservation requirements for her new business venture.
“Due to a corporate buyout, my position in the banking industry was eliminated,” shared Connie. “I had been experiencing corporate burnout and knew it was time to evaluate how to balance my work with other important areas of my life. I began researching small business opportunities and the coin laundry business made it to my short list of businesses to explore. I spent the next six months studying the industry to determine if it would meet my requirements for what matters most – flexibility in...”
"As you leisurely indulge yourself in a microbrew and a Panini, made with goat cheese from Portland Creamery, you receive a text message announcing your laundry is done. Glancing around the retro-mod lounge you just might have to remind yourself, “Oh right, I’m in a Laundromat.” Obviously this is not your typical college-town Laundromat – this is Spin Laundry Lounge.
Located in Portland, Oregon’s Historic Mississippi District, Spin Laundry Lounge encompasses everything owner and founder, Morgan Gary, originally had in mind when it came to putting her, well, unique spin on the laundry business. “My goal was to redefine the Laundromat,” explained Morgan. “And a big part of that was creating...”
"PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN 6) — When it comes to chores, hanging out and relaxing isn’t the first thing that comes to mind — but one local business may have just figured it out.
Spin Laundry Lounge is as much lounge as it is laundry.
The laundromat has a bar and cafe, shuffleboard and vintage arcade games, along with eco-friendly washing machines.
The steel building once housed a foundry, but is quickly becoming a public space in the Mississippi neighborhood."

Due to extremely tight living spaces and strict water-restriction laws, the majority of New Yorkers are forced to schlep their washing to the nearest Scrub ’n’ Bubble—hardly what you might call chic. In a city that boasts everything from ninja-theme restaurants to cryotherapy spas to boutique vitamin bars, it’s surprising that there isn’t a happening new laundromat—at least there hasn’t been until now.
