It is an add on to the booked service. We will count loads as prepared by you, if for any reason we assume that number of loads is incorrect, you will be informed about the change and additional charges on the booking before we move forward with laundry service.



Suitability for Laundering


By using our service, you agree that your clothes are suitable to be washed in water, on a normal cycle, and dried using heat in a tumble dryer. We cannot be responsible for any damage to clothing that is not suitable for this standard laundering process.


 Laundry Detergent


We do not provide laundry detergent. We kindly ask you to provide laundry detergents of you choice and leave instructions to how to use them. Otherwise, we will be using it with standard instructions we find on the container.


 Damaged Laundry


We will do everything we can to avoid damaging your laundry. Unfortunately there are limitations to what we can do. For example, we don’t have time to check your pockets to see if you have left anything in them. Therefore, we can’t be held responsible if something left in your laundry (like lipstick, chewing gum, or a pen) causes any damage.

All laundering processes, regardless of how gentle, cause normal wear and tear on clothing. As a result, we cannot be responsible for any wear and tear of laundry, including loss of buttons, fading, fatiguing, holes, or abrasions.

Cleaning and drying laundry also creates other risks. We do not individually examine every garment prior to placing it in the laundry. Therefore, if something is “dry-clean only,” or otherwise unsuitable for common washing and drying techniques, please do not include it in the laundry you want us to wash.

We kindly ask you that you do the separation of fabrics and take responsibility for what’s in each load. Along the same lines, we can’t be held responsible for the re-disposition of colors (aka bleeding) or dimensional changes (aka shrinking or stretching).
