Laundry101’s staff picks up soiled clothing and household fabrics from customers’ homes, and returns them sans dirt and stains about 48 hours later. They dry-clean items and wash each client’s load of laundry separately so that clothes don’t get mixed up or misplaced, and afterwards place dry-cleaning on hangers and fold laundry. The staff also honors special instructions, from letting jeans hang-dry, repairing broken zippers, or adding extra starch to shirts with poor posture.
The wardrobe washers at Jackline Soap & Suds take the grunt work out of garb de-griming by taking in tarnished threads and returning them looking as clean and crisp as the day their owners gave birth to them. Drop off 10 soiled shirts for a spin in a suds-filled washing machine, where they'll be subjected to a thorough rinsing before curling up in a toasty dryer with a cup of hot cocoa and a paperback. The careful laundry laborers remove dehydrated shirts from the dryer and eradicate obstinate wrinkles with a steaming iron, returning them faster than the speed at which electricity flows through Jell-O.

For customers who prefer performing the wash themselves, Splash 'Em Out's four locations keep customers' minds off the wait with entertainment including cable TV, video games, WiFi, and a children's play area. Stained clothes get special attention from Splash 'Em Out's staff, who can remove remnants of smoke, soot, or water stains from damaged clothing and thoroughly clean horse blankets without riding the horse through a car wash.
A 360-turn around Kid's Place Adventure Playground reveals obstacles and structures for kids to climb over, dive into, and jump on. They can careen down slides and into a plastic ball abyss before testing their agility at the rock climbing wall or writing "Dear John" letters to gravity in the bounce house. The arcade entertains with skeeball and air hockey, and even toddlers get in on the action in their own private area. Parents, in turn, barely have to lift a finger except to point at the snack bar menu when refueling their brood.
