I try to never check bags, which means that I can't take more than four or five days of clothes. For longer stays, this means I need to do laundry at some point. As we all know, hotel laundry prices are outrageous. Some people resort to washing things out in the sink, but for me this is difficult, messy, and ineffective. I've been lucky enough to find a few places that do laundry and charge by the pound or even better by the bag. Sometimes, they even pick up and drop off at the hotel. I'm thinking it might be useful to share tips on the best places to do laundry. To get things started, here are my two favorites: Sydney, Australia: City Laundry. Charge by the bag. Pick-up/drop-off. Same-day service. Sydney Hilton will add to folio. Hong Kong: Snow White. Charge by the pound. Pick-up/drop-off. Same-day service. Conrad will add to folio.
