Laundry Moms delivers a weekly reprieve from the most infamous household chore by abducting dirty clothes and linens and promptly returning them washed, dried, and neatly folded. After designating a convenient pickup location and delivery time, Laundry Moms arrives on schedule, ready to whisk shirts, pants, and bed sheets to the land of detergents and cleansing carousels. Before folding clothes into neat piles of origami cranes, Laundry Moms either tumble dries them or, as one of several extra services, hangs them on a clothesline ($1/piece) to dry in the open air and properly display “Hang in There!” motivational T-shirts. The typical turnaround is 48 hours, but Laundry Moms offers expedited service for an additional fee ($10).
