There are few tasks as monotonous as weekly laundry routines.
Every week you have to budget 50 minutes to an hour for a wash cycle, remove the soaking wet lumps of clothing, and put it into the dryer, always dropping at least one errant sock onto the dusty floor along the way.
From there, you wait another 45 minutes to an hour of waiting around for the cruel reward of folding and putting away the entire load.
We haven’t even mentioned the headache of finding all of the spread-out clothes from your and your family members’ respective laundry bins.
I could go on for hours about the grueling cycle of laundry, but we are all too familiar with the hours of lost time and the miserable routine. Fortunately, we can now break free from the relentless task!

How much do professional laundry services cost?
It’s natural to want to make sure your family is being cared for in the most efficient way possible, and that includes operating within your family’s budget. The cost of getting your household laundry taken care of professionally is about the same as doing the laundry yourself, unless you consider all the additional time this saves you, which is priceless from the perspective of any person, of every income level, who plays and works hard.
You can afford to give it a try: Cost Breakdown
Professional wash dry fold laundry runs $2.00 per lb, with free pick up and delivery twice weekly. The average cost a consumer pays for wash fold depends on the size of the household. A typical single-person household pays about $37 per month, while a family of 6 will pay about $252. Obviously the price can vary quite heavily,
On average, consumers spend about $15-$25 once or twice a month on laundry detergent, or about $180 -$600 per year. Dryer sheets, fabric softener, and aroma boosters can add an additional cost of $2-$35 per month. You cannot forget the hidden costs of water, which costs about $.88 per load; and energy prices range from $.14- $.45 per load. If the average consumer does four loads of laundry per week, they can expect to pay around $300-$720 a year.
Depending on the size of your household, professional laundry can range dramatically from comparable prices to a convenient expense to a straight up bargain. So give it a try and see how much the convenience is worth to you. I can say for myself that it has been invaluable in saving me time throughout the week, and I am never worried about whether or not an outfit will come out of the washer in time or if I got to folding it before it wrinkled anymore.
How does this choice affect the community?
Choosing to take household laundry off your list of chores supports stronger bonds with family, and friends, and provides community opportunities because additional time is available, not only to spend with others and at tasks but also because more time for rest and self-care is available. When your neighbors hear about the enormous weight that has been lifted off your shoulders, they too will be able to take advantage of this great service. This choice also supports local small business owners and long-term local residents who are employees.
