Where to get your laundry done.

Miscellaneous: Dutch people do their own laundry. I've not seen a household where there is no washing machine. So laundromats are few and far between. However, if you do need to have your laundry done, I found this info right here on VT by using the search box and the words 'laundry amsterdam':

Under the map on the right you see a link 'vergroot de kaart'. Click on that and you get the same list with a map of Amsterdam.

The central area is just under the letters 'erd' of AmstERDam.
