―Toni Cipriani about the Triads.

Taking Out the Laundry is a mission in Grand Theft Auto III given to protagonist Claude by Toni Cipriani from his mother's restaurant in the Saint Mark's district of Portland Island, Liberty City.


Toni tells Claude that he wants him to destroy three of vans used by Mr. Wong's Laundromat, after the Triads had attempted to ambush him before. Toni tells Claude to drop by 8-Ball's Eightballs Autoyard in Saint Mark's to collect some grenades. After leaving Toni, Claude locates and destroys the three vans, avoiding pursuing Triads after destroying the first van.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go pick up the grenades
  • Destroy the three laundry vans


  • Although the mission ask you to destroy the vans using the grenades, is not really necessary do this. In truth, it is much easier fulfill the mission stealing the three vans and destroy them at the same time pushing them to the ocean. If you want to use this technique, it is also important that you know: You must steal the vans stopping a car in front of them carefully, because if you hit your car or shot in the vans, the drivers perceive that they are being pursued and will run of you quickly, making it impossible rob them.
  • Use the grenades to destroy the vans is a very bad idea because it draw police attention quickly, the technique above is recommended if you want to economize the grenades to use them later and avoid the agressive Triads. Just as they start to attack you only if destroy one of the vans, merely steal them will not make them to attack you.


The reward for completing the mission is $20,000. The mission The Pick-Up is unlocked by completing the mission.
