Between work, family, school, travel, and other social engagements life can get busy. That’s why when it comes to housekeeping, we are excited about any innovative solutions that can save us time. If you are like most of us, laundry is probably one your many dreaded household tasks that can be difficult to fit into your family’s busy schedule.
Fortunately, we live in modern times where automatic washing machines and dryers dramatically cut down on the time and labor that goes into doing laundry. However, many people are not lucky enough to have a washing machine and dryer in their apartments, which often times means fitting in a time-consuming trip to the laundromat during precious weekend hours when you should be relaxing.
If this is the case for your household, we have good news for you. Many laundromats offer a wash and fold laundry service, which means you can spend less time on laundry and more time focusing on your busy to-do list, spending time with your family, or just enjoying some hard-earned relaxation.
What is a wash and fold laundry service?
A wash and fold laundry service is probably exactly what you are picturing. Wash and fold laundry services, allow customers to drop off dirty laundry such as clothes, sheets, and towels. The professionals at the laundromat then wash, dry, and fold the laundry for pick up. All you have to do is drop off your dirty laundry and pick up your fresh, clean laundry at a time that is convenient for you. Sounds sort of like magic, right?
Will a wash and fold laundry service really save me time?
One question we often hear is, “How much time does a wash and fold laundry service really save?” This is because many customers do not realize that this specialty service truly requires no work or preparation by the customer. In fact, you do not need to worry about separating or preparing your clothing at all. Simply drop your dirty laundry off, and let the professionals take over sorting and deciding which wash cycle is best for delicates and other specialty items.
Another time-saving benefit of wash and fold laundry service is, that aside from washing your dirty laundry, the laundromat will also neatly fold and organize your laundry so that you can quickly and easily put it away when you get home. This benefit is key for any of us who have watched a pile of fresh laundry sit on the couch for days only to realize that our clothes are now wrinkled and unwearable.
Are wash and fold laundry services worth the cost?
Another comment that we often hear from potential customers is, “There is no way I can afford a wash and fold laundry service. That is for the rich and famous!” However, this simply is not true. In fact, wash and fold services typically ring in at $1.15 per pound.
Aside from being cost-effective, this service also saves customers many hours each week that would otherwise be spent sorting, washing, drying, and folding laundry. As the old adage goes, “time is money,” and we couldn’t agree more. So in a way, when you save hours of time by opting for a wash and fold laundry service, you are also saving some pretty major money.

Whether you need more time to get things done or simply want to enjoy your time off work by relaxing with friends and family, a wash and fold service is an easy and affordable way to free up the hours you would normally commit to doing laundry each week.
