Your first task is to get some super spirit from inside the Laundry store. If you want the store’s specific location, go down the alley from Seamus’s home until you reach a white building with clothes and a red neon sign out front.
However, the door to the laundry door will be locked, meaning you will have to get it open somehow. You can try to scratch it, but your efforts will be meaningless, and you will be forced to look for another way.
