About Clean Laundry

Our Story

Clean Laundry was co-founded by a father and son duo with years of experience operating laundromats. Store Co-Founder and Business Unit Fanatic Ethan Akin grew up in the neighborhood where the 1st store is located, and he can usually be found in or near one of the many Clean Laundry stores. When you see Ethan say "hi", and let him know if you need any assistance or have any questions.


Our Promise

Clean Laundry is a simple idea. If you go to a place to get your clothes cleaned, it should be clean. It should be fast, comfortable, and do the best job ever washing and drying your clothes. It should be a pleasant, comfortable place that’s safe, secure, and that provides great value.

We then added some additional requirements to our list. We wanted to use Iowa-made and we wanted a “Green” store that reduced the use of water, gas, and electricity compared to older, less efficient facilities.

What we ended up with is the new Clean Laundry, and It’s About Time!
