Default Laundromat (coin laundry) near Brier Creek?

Hi,
I'm pretty new to the area, and moved in to one of those (many) apartment complexes due-west of RDU in Brier Creek.

I'm looking for a coin laundry, laundromat nearby, to wash blankets, pillows and such. My apartment-sized washer/dryer can't handle them.

The two closest I've found were both pretty trashy, (just off I-70 on Millbrook and near US-54 at US-55).

I know that most dry-cleaners can do laundry, but they are mostly just for normal clothing, and I'd rather do the big stuff myself.

There doesn't seem to be many listed in the internet searches (Google, yahoo, etc), so I'm hoping someone who knows the area can help.

Thanks!

Depending on how costly it is, it may be easier to give it to a dry cleaner. There is one on Brier Creek Parkway - next to the fire station - that I've used for the last 18 months. They're called Sherrills, and they're great - good, friendly service and not too pricey!

Are any coin-op laundry facilities NOT trashy?

The first two I found ... well, I'd not be able to wash my bullet-proof vest as I'd feel uncomfortable not wearing it! And if I dropped a sock on the floor, I might not be able to find it as bad as the floor was.

I did find one that's OK. Clean, open, well kept up and lit. Machines actually work. My problem is that it's a pretty long drive.

Can you clean blankets, pillows, and comforters at a dry cleaners? I always thought you had to take them to a laundromat with those huge machines.
