Laundry Service Tips: Real Customers Share How to Balance Life, Budgets & Clean Clothes

Published Date:
February 29, 2024

Balancing the convenience of laundry service with budgets and schedules can be tricky. To help, we asked real 2ULaundry customers to share their best tips on seamlessly integrating a laundry routine into busy schedules. 

How often do most people use a laundry service?

1. Every Week

For weekly laundry service, just set it and forget it! 2ULaundry offers a weekly pickup option. Instead of logging into the 2U app to schedule a pickup every week, our recurring option allows you to pick a day and stick with it, every week. It’s similar to the recurring schedule that your pool cleaners, housekeeper, or landscapers offer for their services. You can create a recurring schedule with either our Pay-As-You-Go option or our Subscribe & Save option!

“2ULaundry takes care of three-quarters of my family’s laundry weekly. We have a washer & dryer at home for the small stuff that is always needed like the kid’s school uniforms and soccer jerseys. The weekly recurring pickups are scheduled out for us just like the maid service and pool cleaners.” –Jessica B., weekly customer

2. Every Once in a While

You never know when you might need laundry help. But, a recurring schedule or subscription doesn’t work for everyone.You don’t need to be on a recurring schedule to order laundry service with 2ULaundry. You can simply place an order as needed.

“I started using 2ULaundry to help out my to-do list when we have stressful things on the horizon. It’s usually just before we have house guests in town, when my husband is traveling for work, or right before we are going on vacation. Now that I think of it, when we get back from vacation is by far my favorite time to order!” –Erinn P., uses 2ULaundry every 1-2 months

3. Only with a Coupon

Do you love coupons? We do too!

When our driver’s routes aren’t quite full, we’ll send a message out to customers in that neighborhood letting you know. If you schedule a pickup via text message reply, your order is automatically discounted. These discounts range from $10-$20 based on both your neighborhood and the number of slots remaining on the route.

“I don’t mind doing laundry for our family! However, I always place an order when there are coupons. The Customer Support team will send texts a couple of times per month offering discounts because the delivery driver in my area needs more stops on a certain day. It is a quick way to save $10-$20 on the service. It’s a little surprise treat to myself. ” – Marriona A., uses 2ULaundry once a month

4. Only Sheets & Towels

 Many of our pickup and delivery laundry service customers use 2ULaundry as a way to manage sheets and towels. Sheets and towels are harder to wash in smaller, residential washing machines. Plus, when we  fold them beautifully, unwrapping them is a real treat!

“I keep three sets of sheets and towels for each bedroom and bathroom. When I’m on my last batch, I’ll schedule an order to restock my linen closet at the house. I’d like to think it’s once a season but it’s probably closer to once every six months. Oops!” – Tina W., uses 2ULaundry 5 times a year

5. Only Kids Clothes

Sending your kid’s clothes to a laundry service is a serious parenting hack! Kids' clothes are always hard to fold because they’re small and they take a ton of time!

Only sending in children’s clothing helps you save significantly when compared to sending all of your household laundry.

“I really like using this for my kid’s laundry. That may not be conventional but it’s nice getting a head start on laundry every so often to help me never fall too far behind. Too far may be the keyword there. With my kids, I am always behind on laundry. 2ULaundry really helps!” – Amy P., uses 2ULaundry twice a month
