Eric Clapton Deals With His Dirty Laundry in Public

Guitar icon Eric Clapton is on tour in the U.S., and he was spotted in Los Angeles rockin' an unusual house: A laundromat. And he was doing what pretty much everyone does there: His laundry.

Leave it to TMZ to catch Clapton in the act of fluffing and folding. Their intrepid eyes and ears behind the camera lauded the legendary rocker for doing his own dirty--err, clean?--work, saying it shows he's "down to earth."

The next time you find yourself plugging those quarters in the machine of your neighborhood laundromat and waiting for the spin cycle to finish, just remind yourself that if Clapton can do it, you can, too.
