Leather Launderette is the sixteenth album by Scottish folk musician Bert Jansch, recorded together with fellow musician Rod Clements. The album was released in March 1989. Jansch had health problems during the recording, and in 1987, after being rushed to hospital, he quit drinking alcohol. Colin Harper says in his Bert Jansch biography, Dazzling Stranger, "There can be no doubt that Bert's creativity, reliability, energy, commitment and quality of performance were all rescued dramatically by the decision to quit boozing".
