How Does Wash and Fold Laundry Work?

By

Laundry can either be a therapeutic exercise or a nuisance that you have to deal with in order to have clean clothes. But, between work, family, and your social life, life can get busy no matter where you fall on the great laundry debate. So, when it comes to housework, it can be tempting to want to outsource some of your chores to get more free time. 

Fortunately, there is a way to do that for just about any chore, but especially your laundry. Many dry cleaners, like Mulberrys Garment Care, offer wash and fold laundry services on top of their standard dry cleaning services. This type of laundry service is easy to use on a regular basis, incredibly affordable and is designed to give you your time back while we worry about cleaning your clothes.

In this blog, we’re going to go over what wash and fold is, its benefits and features, and how you can get started with wash and fold subscription service with your neighborhood dry cleaners (like Mulberrys in Minneapolis and San Francisco!). Keep reading to learn how you can spend less time worrying about your laundry and more time kicking back and relaxing.

What is Wash and Fold and How Does it Work? 

Wash and fold is the basic act of laundering clothes through a dry cleaner or laundry service where you drop off your clothing items to have them professionally cleaned. After you’ve dropped off your laundry, it is washed in a commercial washing machine and dried in a commercial dryer. It is then double-checked for supreme cleanliness and folded before being returned to you. While all of this is going on, you can focus on other things on your to-do list while having the peace of mind that your laundry is being safely and expertly cared for!

How is Wash and Fold Different From Dry Cleaning?

Unlike dry cleaning, wash and fold services use water and traditional laundry detergent to clean machine-washable clothing. Dry cleaning uses a liquid, non-water-based solvent to clean garments and they are never introduced to water.

What Are the Benefits of Wash and Fold?

There are plenty of benefits associated with wash and fold services. First and foremost, utilizing a one-time or subscription wash and fold laundry service can be an incredibly convenient way to ensure that your textiles and garments are washed in the best way possible. With this service, you’re able to pick up and drop off your clothes whenever it’s convenient for your schedule, and you don’t have to waste your time washing, drying, and folding your items.

Additionally, wash and fold can be quite affordable, especially if you frequently do your laundry at a laundromat. Wash and fold services charge by weight instead of by garment, and you’d be surprised how much laundry fits into specific weight limits.

Lastly, wash and fold service provides professional cleaning results that you just can’t get at home. Our team of garment specialists have trained for years to ensure that each item of clothing you bring into our stores is clean and fresh. Additionally, we work with top-of-the-line equipment that will leave your clothes looking good as new.

What is a Wash and Fold Subscription Plan?

A wash and fold subscription plan is a monthly opt-in service where returning customers can bring in their laundry for a discounted rate. At Mulberrys, we have three wash and fold subscription plans: Small, Large, and Family. These plans are separated by weight.

A single person will typically accumulate around 30lbs of laundry a month, so we recommend that they opt into the Small Plan. For two people, this amount doubles to 60lbs a month, so we recommend the Large Plan. For anything greater than these quantities, we recommend opting for the Family Plan.

If the wash and fold plan you initially selected does not suit your needs, you can change your plan at any time. The new plan will take effect as soon as your current plan expires.
