Not a problem. Just leave the laundry somewhere we can access it and then log into your account and edit your Pick—up/Delivery instructions. Many customers like to leave their laundry at their back door or on front porch if they are not home. Please select a location that is protected from the elements if possible.

Yes, we do. Please place all stained clothing in a separate bag and let us know by leaving a note in your bag or in your laundry profile and we’ll do our best to get it out. While we are usually successful on removing stains, we can not guarantee a complete success. Always remember it will increase the odds if you pre-treat the stain prior our pick-up.
