Thanksgiving is around the corner and we wanted to give you a quick heads up! Our production and delivery teams will be taking time off for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. While you’re spending time with friends and family, we’ll be doing the same! Please see our holiday hours below:
Laundry is tricky! Everyone has their own preferences. And, it’s our goal to make sure you know how to share these preferences with us. After all, saving time on laundry day isn’t worth much if it’s not exactly how you want it, right?
Here are some tips to consider before scheduling your next order:
Well, we have bad news for you. If you’ve found yourself here, it’s probably time to wash your sheets. While there’s a chance you’ve just washed your sheets and are about to get that ever-so-rewarding first night in new sheets feeling, it’s more likely that you’re hoping to delay the inevitable.
You should wash your sheets once a week.
It’s not a set-in-stone rule but it’s a quick fix to prevent yourself from building up levels of sheet contamination that would make even the heaviest sleepers toss and turn.
That’s just a general number, though. There are plenty of factors that determine if you should wash your sheets more often than once a week based on your lifestyle.
With other chores like grocery shopping, dog walking, and lawn care available at the click of a button, why not laundry?
Whether you’re a family-homeowner with a washer & dryer who needs a helping hand or a renting young professional without access to a washer and dryer, laundry services are proving that there is room at the table for laundry when considering chores to outsource online. But with the trend of pickup and delivery laundry service becoming more mainstream, there are some considerations you should make before sending your clothes out for cleaning.
So, how do you find a reliable laundry service near you? Here are some tips to consider as you begin searching.
Our flat-rate wash & fold pricing makes laundry predictable and affordable. We’ve eliminated the hassle and sticker shock of per pound pricing. Stuff your bags full; it doesn’t change the price!
Order upgrades like softener ($.50), bleach ($1), custom hanging preferences ($3), and hang-dry ($5) are available by request when scheduling your order.
We’ve been at this delivery laundry service thing for a while now. We saw it grow from a side business for laundromat owners to a mainstream industry with venture capital interest. We were there for the emergence of delivery routes, no longer just a simple neighborhood drive-by. We’ve seen the high-efficiency and energy-saving machines come, go, then come again. And, we’ve watched laundry turn from a commodity to a luxury service.
In such a rapidly changing space, it’s hard not to get pulled into an ongoing analysis of where we are, where we’ve been, and where we’re headed next. In this most recent round of thought, a handful of trends have caught our attention. And, unlike the Marie Kondo craze of 2018, we feel pretty confident about these trends. Let’s take a closer look at how laundry service expectations are changing – for the better.
“I hate laundry. Y’all – I hate it so much that I avoid it at every cost!”
