La Machine du Voisin is a new French site that connects those looking to wash their clothes with those who have an empty washer and dryer. The site is designed to help those suffering from the immense agony that comes from learning that their building laundry room, and the laundry mat down the street, are at full capacity.

The site is free to use for both laundry doers and laundry machine owners. Those doing laundry can search within their city to find available machines. Since laundry is heavy, and often smelly, the results are confined to a radius of 500 meters. A list of available machines are shown, along with details such as their capacity, brand and fee. Doing your laundry at a stranger's house may seem odd, but La Machine du Voisin has been well-received by the French, with over 1,000 machines already listed on the site.
