Campers' Laundry Aid
Kids away at summer camp is supposed
to be a time for parents to relax. But
once they return home, the hassle of
cleaning their clothes sets in.
Waterford-based Town Tub Coin
Laundry is relieving parents burden by
offering pickup and delivery of their
campers' laundry [(248) 303-4755].
For the past six years, Town Tub
owner Nick Philko has laundered the
clothes each summer for many of
Detroit's overnight camps.
"Parents love having their children
come home from camp, but they do not
love having to deal with all that dirty
laundry," said Philko.
"Camp laundry can contain things
like sand from the beach and occasion-
ally a few bugs from the forerst. So it is
best done at our commercial laundry?'
Adrianne Seligman Katz from West
Bloomfield says she uses Town Tub
because of the convenience.
"I have clean clothes back in drawers
in less than 24 hours," said Seligman
