Best of Boston

1991 Best Laundromat

Mother’s Laundry Emporium

The worst problem in Laundromats is not soiled clothes—it’s boredom. Mother’s has licked it by providing sofas, a television, a Lifecycle, rowing machines, and a tanning salon. You can knock off a few errands while you’re there, too: Mother’s rents videos and tuxedos (in spring and during Christmas), takes dry cleaning, and provides a copy machine.
