DID YOU KNOW?  – No Coins only cards, phone or fit bit payment Apps


The Lonely Sock™ is equipped with 12 front loading washing machines in four sizes: 9kg, 14kg, 18kg and 25kg. The 15 dryers in store are a mix of three sizes: 14kg, 21kg and 28kg. Each machine has been designed to be eco-friendly through minimising the utilities (water, electricity and gas) required to complete a cycle without compromising performance.

The large store space can easily accommodate 15-20 people using machines at once. The store is fitted with a 1000 litre mains pressure system, so washing with hot water is always possible. All of our machines are also fitted with electronic payment options. 


The store space is well lit and monitored by 24 hour security cameras. The space is also cleaned daily to ensure customers are comfortable utilising our available chairs, workstation and library whilst in store. Soap powder, liquid, fabric softener, cold drinks and snacks are all available to purchase for low prices from our vending machine.
