10. Laundry -Wash and Dry (6kg) Orders
Checking Items :
Please ensure to thoroughly check all the garments for hazardous items, e.g. coins, pens, keys, etc. as we accept no responsibility for any items lost or damaged as a result of the cleaning process
Washing and Drying/ironing Process :
The load is washed at a 30 degree cycle and tumble dried on a medium heat. As we process a high volume we will not be able to cater to personal requirements (e.g. temperature, washing powders, etc.). Please note that some items are not ironed.
Colour Separation :
We will separate the clothes into lights and darks for you. Although we will take the utmost care in doing this we will accept no responsibility if there is any bleeding or colour transfer during the cleaning process.
Bag Size and Weight :
We will measure the laundry by weight. The minimum weight is 6kg and every kg over 6kg we will charge accordingly. We will update this after we have weighed it at the facility or at collection point and you will receive a confirmation email if necessary . Any order slightly under the minimum weight will be rounded up to 6kg and there is an extra charge per kg once the limit is exceeded
Damaged Items :
We will not be liable for damage to items as we wash by the load and do not inspect the care labels of each garment. For garments that need to be specially treated, i.e. leather, silk, cashmere, fur, velvet and other delicate garments, please ensure that these items can be machine washed and tumble dried.
Excluded Items :
The Wash and Fold will not include any Duvets, blankets or bed spreads. If these are included, then it will be added as an individual product under a new order and your bill will be amended accordingly.
Laundry items are tagged by the load and not individually tagged. Therefore, we cannot accept any liability for missing items.
We employ a special cleaning programme for all curtains, however, there are some inherent risks such as:
- Shrinkage of up to 4% may occur. This is roughly equivalent to 4″ on curtains 8’6″ long.
- Sunlight, age, general wear and tear and certain atmospheric conditions will have weakened the fabrics which would cause them to shred during the cleaning process.
- Some glazed fabrics will become fully or partially de-lustered.
- Cleaning will remove soiling which may reveal: sunlight, yellowing of fabric through smoke damage, colour loss caused by wear, condensation ‘tide’ marks, hidden staining.
Curtains with rubberized linings / blackout linings / therma linings :
Even though your curtains may have a dry clean only label on, there still may be problems during cleaning.
This material may have been tested for suitability for dry cleaning or laundry when new and passed the test.
After being exposed to sunlight the material may start to break down and when cleaned may de-laminate. We cannot foresee this before cleaning.
Linings are used to preserve your curtain material from sunlight. So linings usually wear out before your curtains. This can also cause your linings to tear in the cleaning process. The cost of replacing linings is far less than the cost of replacement the curtains themselves.We shall not be held liable for any damage as such .
12. Bulk Ironing Service
We offer a Bulk Ironing Service. Once items are received, they will be re-weighed and the customer invoice will be updated if required. Customers are encouraged to check their updated invoice to ensure they are aware of any price changes
13. Monthly Membership Plans
We offer a Monthly Membership contract which includes 4 pickups per 30 days. Once the 4 pickups or 30 days has expired, the membership will cease and a new monthly contract needs to be purchased for the next period. Any package cannot be brought forward to the next month and must be used in the four-week period.

Garment Damage Policy: Whilst every care is taken handling your clothes, if you believe that we have damaged your garments in an anyway please contact as within 24 hours. We will do our best to resolve the situation. We will investigate thoroughly and if we feel that we were at negligent, we shall pay fair compensation based upon the current value of the garment. This is usually around 5-10 times the cost of the dry cleaning.
Our damage policy is in line with the Office of Fair Trading recommendations.
