The cleaning crew at Total Laundry Services’ dueling outposts champion textilian purity with a gauntlet of washing and dry-cleaning services. Total Laundry Services’ ablution authorities will bathe comforters of all sizes in waterless solvents before folding them into cuddly origami teddy bears. Like other dry-cleaned goods, comforters can pass through the shops' speedy washworks and onto superheroes’ napes within 24 hours Monday–Thursday, or emerge fresh-faced from weekend getaways by 6:00 p.m. on Monday.
Organization is in Keegan's DNA. As a kid, her room was always clean, and her closet had a system for shoes, sweaters, shirts, skirts, and dresses. Her friends looked to her for help organizing their own things, and they still do today. For Keegan, turning her love for organization into a career was a no-brainer. And so, in an orderly fashion, of course, she got Neat Freak Professional Organizing up and running. Her services tackle both residential and business tasks and even include holiday decorating and moving assistance. She can arrange anything from cabinets and photo albums to garages, paperwork, and office work zones. To get things started, she provides free 30-minute consultations that identify goals and pinpoint systems that suit individual needs.

Although the WOD is never the same, it might incorporate a combination of various moves such as weightlifting, rowing, running, performing body-weight exercises such as pushups and pull-ups, or doing dips on suspended rings.
