About The Washboard Laundry

Delivering fresh clean laundry since 2010.

Tyler Blair, Owner
The Washboard Laundry San Diego

I stumbled into the laundry business – literally. In April 2009, I was recovering from an Achilles tendon repair surgery and having to share one washer and dryer with 14 other apartments (while on crutches!) made doing laundry difficult. I decided doing several loads at once at a Laundromat would be more efficient and after a few weeks of trying different San Diego Laundries, I realized the normal laundry experience was boring, in run down and neglected Laundromats with little-to-no customer service. It made no sense to me to get my clothes clean in a dirty Laundromat. I decided to investigate and get to know the laundry business. After months of researching Laundries in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Houston and Boston, I uncovered The Washboard Laundry. It was the perfect opportunity to try some pretty radical ideas and improve the laundry industry. My plan was simple, a Laundromat with modern décor, current magazines, amenities, some technology with a clean, fun and social vibe. This kind of Laundromat was not out there. Trust me! I looked at over 75 Laundromats. I honed in on my ideas and pitched it to my parents. They were all thumbs up and on April 28th, 2010, The Washboard Laundry was born.

Although, we no longer offer self-service laundry due to the increase in our commercial and fluff and fold laundry services, we still continue to pride ourselves on great customer service and cleanliness. Our well-trained staff will make sure your experience goes smoothly and that your laundry is fresh and clean and returned with a smile.

Thank you for considering the Washboard for your laundry needs and we look forward to hopefully working with you.
