On-Demand Laundry Washing? Yep, There’s an App For That!

Raise your hand if you like doing laundry. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Yeah, we’re pretty sure it falls under “least favorite chore” for most people. Well, now there’s an app for that. Meet Washio, a laundry and dry cleaning service that will clean your clothes in 24 hours and deliver them to your door. On-demand laundry? Um, yes please.

Here’s how it works. You place your order via the app by selecting your pickup and drop off times and location. A “ninja” (the term Washio uses to refer to its team members) will pick up your dirty clothes and deliver them the next day, totally clean. Your account is charged automatically—so seamless.

You can also live monitor the progress of your order on your phone. Plus, if your laundry needs a cold wash or a special detergent, you can add those details to the special care notes when you place your order. Did we mention Washio is eco-friendly and doesn’t use harsh chemicals or plastic bags?

It gets better. Washio also makes it easy to give away your old clothes. Add a donation bag to your order, and a ninja will pick up your items and donate them to a nearby charity. Doing good by doing your laundry? We’re hooked.

Washio is currently available in Los Angeles and San Francisco. You can find pricing details here. There is a $20 order minimum. Download the app for free here.
