The Mother Lode Fluff & Fold keeps closets filled with clean clothes even when its customers are at their busiest. The easy process begins with an appointment and a confirmed pickup time, and ends with a professionally packaged batch of fresh shirts, pants, and parliamentary wigs. In between, launderers treat soiled clothing to premium detergents, a run through the drier, and fluffing and folding before returning them back to homes in professional packaging. Partnering with local Clothing Closets charities, The Mother Lode also offers free pickup for all donated clothing, cleaning the garments and delivering them to those in need.

Since kicking off its online app, Washio has raked in some impressive plaudits. Entrepreneur named Washio one of "100 Brilliant Companies" in 2013. Forbes also highlighted the company as one of "five great startups." The praise is mostly thanks to the company's easy-to-use app, which allows customers to schedule pick-up and drop-off dry-cleaning and laundry services like other apps let them schedule cab rides. Over the Internet, iPhone, or Android, customers simply select a 30-minute window for pickup. Then, they just fill up a reusable bag with their laundry and wait for Washio's staffers, affectionately named ninjas, to arrive. The ninjas?who bring along a complimentary cookie for good measure?whisk clothing, blankets, and other items away and return them fresh and clean 24 hours later. Washio automatically charges the customer's credit card after this delivery, freeing folks from having to carry cash, give a tip, or figure out how much one bag of laundry costs in hen's eggs.
At the cleaning location itself, staffers employ eco-friendly practices and cleaners free from harsh chemicals for premium dry-cleaning services. Just like real ninjas, Washio's staffers also accept special instructions for handling.
Certified yoga instructor Mary sees the same crisp alignment in a clean room that she does in a well-executed tree pose. Her philosophy links the two practices—neatness and yoga—by relating them to the idea of letting go of one's inefficiencies. She believes that purging the body and mind of disorganized energy can also help people clear their homes of clutter.
Mary's appointments typically begin with an asana yoga routine. After they've identified and rejected stagnant energies within themselves, she and her clients set to work tidying the area in question, whether it's a large living room, a small closet, or the kitchen pantry that houses your bronzed broom collection. At the end of the session, she conducts a visualization meditation exercise to further encourage the streamlining process. Mary applies similar methods when helping clients move or manage their time.
