Drum volumes are very different between front-loaders and top-loaders that
will wash the same loads.

In any case,  since I have laundry equipment at home, what I'm usually
searching for is "laundromat with a large-capacity front-loading machine" -
since that's what I'll need for a sleeping bag or a down-filled duvet. The
idea that the "large capacity" machine may be rated for a nominal "12 kg"
is ridiculous, since my summer sleeping bags weighs less than a kg dry, and
the winter one about 1.5 kg, but the volumes of a top-loading "standard
capacity" (6 kg?) machine and a front-loading "large capacity" machine
don't compare directly either. I'm not sure, given our data model, how I'd
state such a query. (Today, I ask Google. :P)

By the way, it must be a front-loader. Never, ever wash a lightweight down
sleeping bag in a top-loader - that's just begging to tear the baffles.
