How to Wash Your Laundry in 4 Minutes

Recently, when I found that I was so busy living life that my laundry hamper was about to explode, I began to panic. Wondering how am I going to get my laundry done while I work, pick my son up from school and cook dinner. Since I don’t have the luxury of having a washing machine and dryer at home, I remembered seeing a sign at the laundromat that I frequent stating the 4 minute wash.
I decided to inquire about the 4 minute wash. What do I have to lose at worst it could be a crock or there really could be a way to get your clothes washed in 4 minutes, if only I would inquire about. So I did. Brace yourself, it is a wash and fold laundry service. The premise is that you drop off your unsorted, soiled laundry and assuming their is no line, you get your clothes weighed and a pick up slip in 4 minutes.

Since this was my first time using the service, I had several questions. How much does it cost per pound? Will I be able to get my clothes the same-day? This is called same-day service. What kind of detergent do you use? Most wash and fold launderer don’t use regular laundry detergent, they use an industrial formula which removes stains and is non-hypoallergenic. Can you hang my jeans and shirts on hangers, then fold the rest. I figured if they hung up the things I usually hang anyway this will save me even more time because I would only have to put everything away when I got home without the inconvenience of washing the clothes.

After my mind was put to ease that my clothes would be washed together and not mixed with some strangers, I decided to try the service because I had nothing to lose and everything to gain such as clean laundry .

I am glad I tried the service. They told me I could pick up my clothes after 6pm so I arranged my schedule so that after dinner, I could pick my clothes up. After dinner, I went to pick up my clothes. I returned so quickly that my husband was surprised that I was back. I had my clean clothes in tow. The folded clothes were ready for the dresser and the clothes on the hanger were prepared for the closet. I was floored. It took me all of 15 minutes to put the clothes away.

You should try using a wash and fold service especially one that offers pick up and delivery because they will pick up the clothes from your house and deliver them when clean.
