Laundry in Lijiang China?

I have been here for two days trying to keep my eyes open for it, but haven't been able to find any laundry services outside my (and I'm sure other hotels too). The problem is, they charge 10RMB per "garment" and so for my 10 pairs of boxers, 5 shirts, 4 pair of socks and 2 pair of shorts.... well that works out to be like $30 just for laundry! That seems a bit crazy for a place where everything is pretty cheap otherwise.

Can anyone point me where to look? I have also of course looked online and found nothing helpful there. Ideal would be a GPS coordinate or something like that because finding things based on streets around here can be very tough for an english speaker.

I am living in the old town area, so the closer to that, the better. Thank you so much!

This area is too cool and moist for clothes to dry. I already tried that, and I have thing hanging up now for 36 hours that feel exactly like they did after I wronged them out and hung them. So please... The question was for laundry services, not ways to do my own laundry. Thanks..

This is why I buy quick dry clothes for travel. Also allows me to pack very light. Put the washed clothes in a towel and roll the towel tight. That will help dry them. If need be, in the morning, use the hair dryer to finish the job. But bringing the right clothes in the first places helps.
For a place for laundry I would ask the hotel, doorman or concierge.

Go down the streets or alleys to the smaller motels and see if they can do your laundry cheaper. The drying is an issue because they don't have dryers nor washers, probably handwashed, our clothes came back folded and damp, used the hair dryer to finish the job like JPDeM.
