Each lot of similar clothes is processed individually with care. We may process your clothes with other customers’ clothes, but we sort the clothes to make sure your whites don’t become red. Rest assured the cleaning process renders the garments dirt and germ free.
Can I ask someone else to hand off my laundry bag?
In case it is not possible for you make it on the scheduled pick-up time, we can accept your bag from someone else. However, in order to ensure the security of your items, we will not deliver your order to anyone other than yourself, unless you specifically contact us and instruct us otherwise.
What if I am missing an item of clothing from my returned bag?
We will always create an inventory sheet prior to pick-up that details all items found within your bag. You will keep the original sheet and we will keep a copy. If an item should come up missing that was listed on the inventory sheet, and it is reported within 48 hours from drop off; we will reimburse you an amount equal to your proof of purchase amount, limited to a maximum justifiable market value of the garment.

How should I pack my clothes for the initial pick-up?
You do not have to prepare any laundry bag for the pick-up. Our associate will bring you a bag to fill at the time of pick-up. If you will not be present, you can leave them in a clean trash bag, or comparable bag outside your door, we will gather them in our bags. In case you’re a monthly subscriber then we also provide you with a laundry bag in it. So you just have to give us the bag with dirty laundry and we will provide you a fresh bag.
