Clean Up Your Act with Washio Laundry Service

A new app that washes, folds, and delivers


You go to dramatic lengths — soaking sweaters in the sink, repeating outfits, wearing your bathing suit as underwear — to avoid laundry day.

Skip the stunts and sign up for Washio instead. The new service fetches, cleans, folds, and returns your clothing within 24 hours.

Just download the free app, register, and select pickup and delivery times. When your laundry ninja arrives, you get two reusable bags (one for dry cleaning, one for stuff to wash) to bag up your dirty clothes — plus a chocolate chip cookie for your efforts.

The next day, your garments come back to you fresh and expertly folded. Not into scented detergents? Request fragrance-free or send along your own.

We appreciate Washio’s text message reminders and reasonable rates ($1.60 per pound of laundry, $6 per dry-cleaned blouse, free delivery with a $20 minimum).

Think of it as a clean break from the soap opera.

Available at itunes.apple.com, free. Receive $10 off your first order by entering code DailyCandy10 at checkout.
