How do most people use a laundry service?

It’s not always clear how to best use it in unison with the rest of your life: budgets, schedules, work, school, family, etc. There is no one size fits all solution – but here is some advice from our current customers.

How do most people use The Folde?

No matter how you use it, delivery laundry service helps everyone lighten the load. See where you find your sweet spot. Wherever it is, we’ve got a spot for you.

Tips for Using a Laundry Service

1. Every Week

For weekly laundry service, you just set it and forget it! We offer an option to make your schedule recurring. Instead of logging in to place an order every week, our recurring option allows you to set it and forget it. It’s similar to the recurring schedule that your pool cleaners, housekeeper, or landscapers offer their services.

Along with the weekly option, we also offer bi-weekly or monthly recurring options.

Customer Tips – Weekly Laundry Service

“The Folde takes care of three-quarters of my family’s laundry on a weekly basis. We have a washer & dryer at home for the small stuff that is always needed like the kid’s school uniforms and soccer jerseys. The weekly recurring pickups is scheduled out for us just like the maid service and pool cleaners.” –Jessica B, avg. 2-3 bags per week.

2. Every Once in a While

You never know when you might run into a laundry emergency. So, a recurring schedule might not work for you! That’s ok!

You don’t need to be on a recurring schedule to order laundry service with The Folde. Since there are no subscriptions or memberships, you can simply place an order whenever you need some help.

Customer Tips – Every Once in a While

“I started using The Folde to help out my to-do list when we have stressful things on the horizon. It’s usually just before we have house guests in town, when my husband is traveling for work, or right before we are going on vacation. Now that I think of it, when we get back from vacation is by far my favorite time to order!” –Erinn P, avg. 5 bags per year.

3. Only with a Coupon

Do you love coupons? We do too!

When our driver’s routes are not quite full, we send a message out to households in that neighborhood letting you know. If you place an order via text message reply, your order is automatically discounted. These discounts range from $10-$25 based on both your neighborhood and the number of slots remaining on the route.

Customer Tips – Only with a Coupon

“I don’t mind doing laundry for our family! However, I always place an order when there are coupons. The Customer Support team will send texts a couple of times per month offering discounts because the delivery driver in my area needs more stops on a certain day. It is a quick way to save $10-$20 on the service. It’s my little surprise treat to myself. ” – Marriona A, avg. 1-2 bags per month.

4. Only Sheets & Towels

Maybe you’re not quite comfortable sending all of your personal laundry out to be cleaned. Laundry is very personal! We understand that!

You’re not alone! A large segment of our laundry service customers use The Folde as a way to help out with those less personal sheets & towels. Sheets & towels are harder to wash in smaller, residential washing machines. Plus, when we beautifully fold them, unwrapping them is a real treat!

Customer Tips – Linen Laundry Service

“I keep three sets of sheets and towels for each bedroom and bathroom. When I’m on my last batch, I’ll schedule an order to restock my sheet & towel stock at the house. I’d like to think it’s once a season but it’s probably closer to once every six-months. Oops!” – Tina W, avg. 4-5 bags per year.

5. Only Kids Clothes

Sending your kids clothes to a laundry service is a serious parent hack! Kids clothes are always hard to fold! They’re so small and they take a ton of time!

Consider sending your kids clothes only. That helps you save significantly when compared to sending all of the laundry in the household.

Customer Tips – Only Kids Clothes

“I really like using for my kids laundry. That may not be conventional but it’s nice getting a head start on laundry every so often to help me never fall too far behind. Too far may be the keyword there. With my kids, I am always behind on laundry. The Folde really helps!” – Amy P, avg. 2 bags per month.

    Laundry Delivery Service FAQ

    How much does it cost?

    Our flat-rate wash & fold laundry pricing makes laundry predictable and easy. We’ve eliminated the hassle and sticker shock of per pound pricing. Stuff your bags full; it doesn’t change the price! With that, we have a $40 bag & a $50 bag for regular wash & fold laundry.

    We offer a Delicates Bag for $25. The Delicates Bag is for your wash & fold garments that need gentle wash and low-temperature or air dry. For some people, it’s a few pairs of their favorite jeans. For others, it’s workout gear and leggings.

    Dry cleaning & launder-press garments are priced per piece between $4-$7.

    What you should look for in a delivery laundry service?

    It’s important to know who is doing your laundry!

    While you might not care who is delivering your pizza, you should care who is doing your laundry. With the rise of middle-man apps that pair you with the closest or cheapest service provider, you have no idea who is picking up, cleaning, and delivering your clothes. And, this likely changes order-to-order – sometimes even being sent to individuals to wash at their home instead of a professional company operating in a professional laundry facility.

    At The Folde, we’re real people doing real laundry – really well. We’re a laundry service you can trust because we really care about your laundry.

    What should you expect from your first order?

    We get it; this whole pick-up and delivery laundry concept is new. We’re here to help bridge the gap between your traditional laundry practices and our new, digital take on it. We’ve put together a complete guide to your first order here.

    How do most people use The Folde?

    It’s not always clear how to best use it in unison with the rest of your life: budgets, schedules, work, school, family, etc. There is no one size fits all solution.

    We asked our customers how they use The Folde to better show you the flexibility that a residential laundry service can provide. Here is what we found.

    How do I customize my laundry preferences?

    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?

    We offer customizations for detergent, softener, and bleach. Here are some tips to help you customize your laundry preferences before scheduling your next order.

    How do the bags work?

    With your first order, you will be provided two specific wash and fold bags and one specific dry cleaning bag to easily separate your dry cleaning clothes from your wash and fold clothes. Additionally, you can request one of our new Delicates Bags for your delicate laundry.

    Please note that any items that you wish to be returned on hangers should be included in the dry cleaning bag. These garments will be priced individually. Learn more about our laundry bags here.

    Do you offer next-day service?

    Yes! We offer next-day delivery for wash & fold laundry orders for an additional $5.

    In your app, you first have the option to select which laundry services you need. The options here are 1) wash & fold laundry service and 2) dry cleaning service, or 3) both.

    If you only need wash & fold laundry service, you’re eligible for next-day laundry delivery. Not into that? Two-day service is still available at the same price and the same scheduling availability.

    A Laundry Service You Can Trust

    Unlike other delivery options, we own and operate our production facilities. We know laundry; we don’t just resell your order to a random laundromat.

    Our drivers and laundry pros are professional, full-time W2 employees. No contractors, no gig-workers, no unlivable wages, and no confusion about who is actually doing your laundry.
