Entry from British & World English dictionary
A laundry at which clothes are washed but not pressed.
- We never had much - I know all about going to bagwash (the launderette), living with the constant smell of paraffin and living in rat-infested rooms.
- Every Saturday I had to push the week's washing in an old pram to the laundrette (the bagwash) up on the Lozells Rd., then fetch 20 lbs potatoes, 5 lbs carrots, 5 lbs parsnips and a large spring cabbage from Henney's on Potters Hill.
- Im goin to the Bagwash with me mum today.
