I only had one wish this Christmas, to have some help with the laundry. Keep up with the washing and ironing is such a huge task in a family of five and it seems to get in the way of all the things I’d rather be doing. There are so many extra tasks in the run-up to Christmas that I found myself wishing for someone to do the ironing for me. My wish came true when I got to review the ironing service from Laundry Heap.
LaundryHeap is so easy to use. The company is an on-demand service that collects and delivers customer orders within 24 hours. You can book your washing online or with the app. There are lots of different slots available for your washing to be picked up. I liked the fact there are evening slots, which makes it very convenient. There is a really quick turnaround for completing the washing or ironing. Our ironing was collected one evening and brought back the next.
We put our ironing in a large bag to take away but were given a large bag for the next time we use the service. There is a map on the app which shows the progress of your driver so you can see exactly when to expect them. The drivers were really friendly and courteous. They knocked on the window rather than ringing the bell which was helpful as the girls had gone to bed.
The ironing was delivered on wire hangers with plastic over it. It is easy to hang it up straight away and the whole job is complete. Every item was crisply ironed including good attention to detail on the collars and around the buttons. I had a range of different clothes in the order, including shirts, cardigans, dresses and T-shirts. They all arrived looking pristine. You can order a Standard wash for just £14 which is a 6 kg of laundry – 30° machine wash and tumble dry. Our entire washing basket would have cost around £30. I was really happy with the service.
You can easily arrange to have your clothes washing and ironed or dry cleaned with only a few clicks. You can even arrange to have it collected on the same day
Now I’ve had a Christmas wish I’m ready for my New Year’s wish – my washing machine has broken down but at least I don’t need to worry about carrying loads of washing to the dry cleaners. Now I just need someone to load the dishwasher for me and I’m set.
