So I gathered everything that needed washing. I hadn't had done any washing in over a week (and was nearing the end of my second rotation of underwear and socks), so I decided that I would do the people of Sweden a favour and clean the bulk of my clothes. I took them to the laundromat, which turned out to be a drycleaner with laundry services - apparently Sweden doesn't do laundromats. So I made the decision to go ahead and get my washing done, at the princely sum of 65kr a kilo (presumably dry); this price because I was in a rush for same day service.
See if you can guess if I bothered weighing my clothes.
Four hours later I returned expecting to pay around 100-120kr for my clothes. What I did pay was closer to 200kr ($40NZD), close to a third of the value of all of my clothing.
It's not exhorbitant, well not for Sweden. But when I returned to the hotel I realised that had I been more creative, I could have washed my clothes in the bathroom, and hung them up on my handy Kathmandu laundry line.
I'm not mad, just disappointed. But now I know for next time.
