San Francisco’s Punniest Laundromat Names, Ranked—Plus Two that Are Just Plain Fun to Say!



As noted in my recent post on idiom-based laundromat names, I also found quite a few laundromats that use pun-based names to attract attention.

This is a risky strategy because some people just hate puns, period. Even those of us who delight in them are more likely to groan than laugh at puns. But a punny business name has a way of sticking in your head—just ask any of the owners of Vietnamese restaurants who choose . Pho-king pho-nomenal!



The punning possibilities of pho are hard to beat, but laundromats manage to give pho shops a run for their punny. (Sorry, but I truly could not help myself.)

As proof, here’s a ranking of the best pun-based laundromat names in San Francisco:



6. Greenwich Clean Time

5. Clothes Encounters

4. The Washing Well

3. Laundropalooza

2. Haight to Wash

1. Get the Funk Out

Bonus: Two Fun Non-Pun Names

These laundromat names aren’t puns, but they’re too delightful to leave off the list.

1. Coiniop Washidry

2. Spwash
