What is Twist & Shine?
We are the new sustainable launderette that cares about the world and the people who live in it.
Our washing powders and softeners are biodegradable: they are more efficient, need less water and are kinder to the environment. All our washers and dryers are state of the art, save water and energy and have a useful life of up to 20 years. We work with certified renewable energies and we collaborate with several local initiatives.

What is the capacity of your washing and drying machines?
All Twist & Shine washing and drying machines have a capacity of 16 kg. Say goodbye to having to wait until a large washer or dryer is free to handle that huge winter eiderdown.
What washing powders and fabric softeners does Twist & Shine use? How much does it cost?
All our washing powders and softeners are enzymatic and biodegradable: they are more efficient, use less water and are kinder to the environment. We have three types of powder: one for whites, one for colours and another that includes active oxygen to give your clothes the best possible hygienic clean in a natural way. We also have three softeners. Flower Power: with a subtle, attractive aroma of blue flowers, citrous and berries. Superfresh: with a sharp, light aroma of talcum powder and Pacific Breeze: with an appealing fresh aroma of white flowers and a sea breeze. All our powders and softeners cost €0.30 each. You can choose these products on the Twist Box, or use your own powder and softener if you prefer.
Can I use my own washing powder and softener?
Whether it’s because you are sensitive to ingredients or you simply don’t want to give up the softener that reminds you of your first summer love, at Twist & Shine you can always use your own powder and softener. All you have to do is put it into the drawer that you’ll find at the front of the washer and choose the option without powder and/or softener on the Twist Box when choosing your washing programme.
How long does it take?
All the washing programmes last 30 minutes. The drying machines have a preset time of 30 minutes, which is what we recommend as a good drying time, although you can always choose more or less time on the Twist Box. Therefore, washing and drying together takes around 60 minutes.
And if waiting isn’t for you, we have the Twist & Delivery service: for €19.90 we collect your clothes and return them to you washed, dried and folded the following day. Click here for more information about our collection and delivery service.

And if you invite your friends, you’ll earn more discounts for the next month depending on how much they use us. Each month you can enjoy a combined maximum discount of up to 30%.

What do I do if I have a query or if there is an incident when I’m using one of your self-service launderettes?
At our Twist & Shine launderettes you’ll find all the information you need about the washing and drying programmes, usage instructions, powders and softeners, and an explanation to help you understand the various symbols on clothes. However, if you have a query or if there is an incident, you will find a button on our Twist Box (the payment machine) that lets you talk directly to our customer support team. You can also call us on 722 23 97 92 or email us at email@example.com and we will get back to you as quickly as possible. Remember, our hours are from 8.00 am to 10.00 pm, seven days a week.
Look after your things!
We look after your clothes as if they were our own, but we do not accept any responsibility for personal items left inside garments. Please check all the pockets of your jackets and trousers carefully before washing or drying them.
You’d be amazed at what we find!
Are you environmentally friendly?
At Twist & Shine we take sustainability very seriously. That’s why we work with certified renewable energies and why our washing powders and softeners are biodegradable: they are more efficient, need less water and are kinder to the environment. In addition, all our washers and dryers are state of the art, save water and energy and have a useful life of up to 20 years. This is our commitment to sustainability.
Do you work with your local neighbourhood?
We believe in teamwork to build economies based on responsible consumption. We support shopping at local shops, markets and cooperatives and work with various local initiatives to generate synergies and to give something back to the community that gives us everything. We are more than just a sustainable launderette; we are a local neighbour who is concerned about the community and local trade.
How can I collaborate with you?
Thank you so much for asking this question! We work with people and organisations with which we share the same way of seeing and understanding the world. Inclusive and sustainable cooperatives, businesses and companies that, like us, support the circular economy and that care about the world and the people who live in it. Are you one of them and would you like to suggest a collaboration? Please write to us here.
