Photos: Laundry Day in L.A.

Support your source for local news!
The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

For thousands and thousands of Angelenos the words "laundry day" conjure up images of drudgery and the pain-in-the-buttitude that is hauling your bags of dirty clothes to the neighborhood laundromat (not to mention the piles of quarters and the waiting). At the laundromat patrons bide their time studying, reading, people-watching, gabbing with the kind soul who came along, and perhaps dreaming of a future home address that has a washer and dryer on the premises.

We noticed some pretty cool images from different laundromats in Los Angeles in the mix of our LAist Featured Photos pool, and rather than just letting them soak, we thought we'd put 'em together and share them with you. Maybe looking at these photos will help you pass the time while you wait for the spin cycle to finish. Oh, and don't forget the fabric softener!
