Maybe I’m just getting old, but as time goes on, I’m finding it harder and harder to pluck up the motivation to do monotonous chores like washing and hanging up clothes. Yawn.
If you happen to live in Edinburgh or London, and you have a spare few quid lying around, you can have some dude come and collect your dirty pants and that, wash them and bring them back. Enter: Laundrapp.
Available as a free download for iOS and Android from the App Store and Google Play respectively, Laundrapp has actually been around for a few months, and in that time it’s racked up a fair amount of positive feedback from customers and reviewers alike.
Here’s what the press is saying:
- "Just as Airbnb disrupted hotels, Laundrapp disrupts laundry!" – The Metro
- "Dirty laundry is a new boom area for entrepreneurs" – The Evening Standard
- "Laundrapp is putting the laundry industry in a spin!" – Techworld
- "I recommend you download Laundrapp" – That Gay Backpacker
- “If I had to give a lecture in effective app design, I would use Laundrapp as an example” – Stuff
The Laundrapp service is available 7 days a week, 7am till late, with door-to-door collection at a time of your convenience.
Prices start at £1.50, with packages including (let’s go for easy-to-digest bullet points again):
- High Five (5 shirts washed, ironed and hung) – £8
- The 9 to 5 (1 suit and 5 shirts hung) – £18
- Office Chic (2 trousers/skirts and 3 blouses) – £20
- Single Bed Set – £8
- Double Bed Set – £11
Probably not the kind of thing you’d want to rely on on a regular basis, but those prices seem pretty reasonable.
Again, Laundrapp is only available in Edinburgh and London at the moment, but the guys promise there are “new cities launching soon”. Splendid.
