A friendly neighbourhood laundromat with a low carbon footprint

Dryers in laundromatBeach Solar Laundromat is a self-serve laundromat with a very low carbon footprint.  Solar thermal panels heat our water, backed up by an efficient gas boiler for cloudy days. Washing machines cost from $3.25 per load, and dryers are $0.25 for six minutes. We have a change machine, soap machine and offer a warm, clean, safe, brightly-lit, affordable facility.

Free Wifi.

The Ladies of the Wash and Fold bring decades of experience in laundry, and will take care of your laundry for $1.80 per pound. The Ladies allocate the tasks among themselves and schedule themselves to accommodate vacations and time off.

We now offer a Laundry Pickup & Delivery service for the greater Beach area. See map.

Or enroll in our Quick Drop program (new, November 2021)!

We offer a pay-it-forward program, where members of our community have anonymously pre-paid for laundry for people who are in need. There’s no paperwork, and no means test – it’s all honour based.  The Ladies of the Wash and Fold implement the program.

We offer a 10% discount on all fabric care services except self-serve Laundromat to all active or retired military or first responder personnel.

Beach Solar Laundromat has been an active member of the Toronto Beach community since 2002, sponsoring children’s sports teams, volunteering and giving tours of our solar thermal equipment, and has won environmental awards municipally, provincially, nationally and internationally.

Beach Solar LaundromatHistory

The Beach Laundromat began operation in 1964, and has been the longest serving Laundromat in the Beach.  The current owner, Alex Winch, bought the Beach Laundromat in September 2002, and commenced a complete mechanical systems retrofit, dramatically improving the efficiency of the water heating, lighting and space heating systems.  He re-branded the business as The Beach Solar Laundromat.
