The Clean Bean Launderette Cafe, Gloucester Road: Making life that little bit easier for parents


My laundry basket is like an overflowing magic porridge pot.

With four people’s clothes to wash, including my own, I never seem to get on top of the laundry. And, on the rare occasions that I do, within a day my laundry basket is near to overflowing again.

However, there is a launderette café on Gloucester Road which as well as being self-service, also offers a laundry service which makes life that little bit easier.

The Clean Bean Launderette Café is on 274 Gloucester Road, is staffed 7 days a week and offers a range of options to help you get on top of your laundry.

If you are a busy mum or dad, you can leave your laundry at The Clean Bean and staff can wash, dry and fold it ready for collection when you return in just a few hours – even your socks will be paired up!

The Clean Bean’s staff can also wash your duvets, pillows, curtains or cushion covers, using wonderful organic products on feather duvets and pillows to keep them fluffy.

There is also a dry cleaning and shirt service available. What I also like about The Clean Bean is that your laundry can be washed and dried to your specification.

For example, if you want one load of laundry washed at 40° and another at 30°, then this is no problem. Or, if you have a particular item of clothing that you don’t want tumble-dried, then this item can be separated.


If getting your laundry to and from the launderette is a problem, The Clean Bean also offers a collection and delivery service to all areas around Bristol.

Prices are affordable and there are also discounts and deals available on duvets, suits and shirts, plus there is a loyalty card for service washes which gives you 20% off every 5th wash.

And, if you introduce a friend,  you will both get 20% off a service wash, too.

There is a café at The Clean Bean which serves coffee from Extract Coffee roasters and there are a range of treats and soft drinks too. If you visit with your kids in tow, there are toys for younger children to play with, plus books and magazines to leaf through.


If you need to catch up with some work or catch up with your emails while you wait, there are also computers and a printer in the café.

There is also a small contained garden to sit outside in while you wait.


So, whatever your laundry need, whether you laundry basket is overflowing, you have a multitude of shirts that need to be washed and ironed, clothes that need dry cleaning or a duvet/curtains/pillows which need a good wash, The Clean Bean’s website gives details of all the services available.
