About Malinowski Laundries
Our mission is creating space for
Love to be experienced in the world.
Can one really create space
for love to be experienced by doing laundry?
It has been our experience that
Love is. It is all around us, all inside us, in everything that we
are and everything that we are not. It is like water to a fish. A
fish may not necessarily know that it is in water, it may in fact be
concealed from it's view. Love may be that way for us. We create
space. Within that space Love is present and experienced. Today, we do this by doing laundry.
How does one create space
for love to occur?
There is no true answer to this
question - it may occur differently for you. Through our experience
we have found that by letting what is, be, and by letting what is
not, be not, space or a clearing arises. In that clearing or space
something can be experienced. We have come to call that
What does that have to do
We purchased the Chestnut Laundry in the fall of 2008. My
wife, an avid audiobook "reader" was reading the book "The Secret"
while she went for her daily run. Thinking about what she
really wanted in her life, she thought about time - more time for
family, more time for the things she considered important to her.
Laundry is not something that is important to her.
She thought, "If I could save the time I spend doing laundry
every week, that would add five hours a week to my life. There
should be a service where you can schedule a pick-up of your laundry
and have somebody wash it and bring it back to you folded."
Somehow, that ended up in us purchasing the Chestnut Laundry, and
then the Middle Avenue Laundry (with attendants). We do offer
drop off and pick up laundry and we also seem to have less available
time now than ever.
We intend to allow you, the customer, to book your pickups on our
calendar and we'll come to your house, pick it up, wash it, and
bring it back to you folded. Our web interface isn't quite
there yet, so you'll have to call to schedule that service as of
