Laundromat is a community lot assignment introduced in The Sims 3: Ambitions. Sims can go to these lots to wash their clothes, benefiting from the laundry system introduced in Ambitions.
To do laundry at a laundromat, zoom the camera there and interact with one of the washing machines. Your Sim will gather laundry and take it to the laundromat where they will be charged a fee. The higher quality machines charge more and aren't eco-friendly, but offer better moodlets and a small chance of finding the mysterious laundry gnome. Laundromats open 24 hours a day meaning Sims can use the laundromat even during the late night hours.

|Sudsy Time Laundromat|
|Number of floors||2|
|Game||The Sims 3: Town Life Stuff|
The Sudsy Time Laundromat is the laundromat from The Sims 3: Town Life Stuff Pack. It can be found in the lots and houses bin and is available to be placed in any neighborhood once Town Life Stuff has been installed. The lot has two floors - a ground (first) floor, containing numerous washers, dryers, and sinks, as well as laundry-themed décor, and a second floor, which contains a foosball table and some chairs, as well as a large balcony. It has a modern look and a 20x30 size.
Creating a laundromat[edit | edit source]
Players can create their own laundromat for other neighborhoods either by copying the Cleanesque Laundromat from Twinbrook or making their own. A laundromat lot needs only a washing machine and a dryer to function, but there must also be a laundry-related object at the home of the active family so that dirty clothes will be generated.
Laundromats can be created without Ambitions, provided that patch 12 is installed and that laundry equipment from either The Sims 3 Store or custom content is installed. University Life added a dryer and a washing machine, also allowing players to create laundromats.
