COVID-19 Update: Learn about what we have been doing to protect our customers and employees.

When you’re raising children with someone it’s easy to get caught up in ‘who made dinner?’ or ‘who unloaded the dishwasher’ or ‘who gave the kids a bath last?’ back-and-forth.

But having a partner in parenting doesn’t mean that everything is always a 50/50 split.

Sometimes, you do more and sometimes they do more and, usually, it all evens out. There are some days though that are made for saying thank-you and, on those days, one of the simple acts of kindness we can give our partners is to take a few of their typical chores off of their plate.

This Father’s Day, consider working with your kids to let dad live chore-free for the day.

Check out this list of chores you can take on to make sure he’s able to relax, unwind, and feel how appreciated he is!

1. Take in his dry cleaning

While he’s probably used to taking in or picking up his own dry cleaning on the way to or from work, treat him to a chore free commute by looking up dry cleaners and dry cleaning prices in your area and dropping off and picking up his dry cleaning for the week.

Of course, if you don’t want to just transfer the chore from him to you and make it easier on the whole family, you can use 2ULaundry‘s dry cleaning services. 

2. Do the laundry

In most families, laundry is an everyone chore: there’s always a load to be tossed in, switched over, folded or put away. This Father’s Day, treat him to a week off of laundry duty by taking it on as your personal chore, enlisting the help of the kids or simply ordering laundry service. (Hint, hint: 2ULaundry)

3. Take out the trash

If your partner is the one who typically takes out the trash, let him relax and make sure the inside trash goes out all on your own. If you’re not in the mood to take out the garbage, remember that this is a pretty simple chore that most elementary school aged kids can do on their own. So consider passing it on to one of the kids. 

4. Clean out the garage

The garage is an oft neglected space when it comes to cleaning since you can literally close it off and not have to see the mess with the click of a button. Having a clean and organized garage is a real treat though that will help you and your partner feel happy at home.

Before Father’s Day hits, consider spending a day with your kids getting the garage in shape!

5. Mow the lawn

Mowing the lawn isn’t how most people envision spending their weekend afternoons but, for many dads, that’s exactly what they end up doing. This year, treat your partner to a fresh cut lawn while they relax or spend time with the kids in the cool, air-conditioned inside.

Father’s day offers families an opportunity to shake up their chore chart and give dad a break from his usual must-do’s. Whether you take on his chores as your own for the day, rope the kids in to help or order some outside help, he’ll be more than happy to have a chore-free day!

  • How do the bags work?

    We use colored bags to differentiate services and make it easy for you to let us know what services you need. Set the bags out separately on your scheduled pickup day, and make sure they’re fully closed for transit to our facility. Please note that any overflow will be transferred into another 2ULaundry bag at the time of pickup and billed separately.

  • Can I request additional bags?

    Yes, to ensure your cleaning preferences are met, please place items in the correct bag for that service.

    If you do not have the correct bags or enough bags for your upcoming pickup, please contact Customer Care or request the additional bag through your Online Account. We’ll deliver one to your location free of charge. If we’re unable to deliver an additional bag in advance of your pickup, simply leave the items in a personal bag labeled with your name and the requested service(s).

  • How do I schedule a pickup?

    Your first pickup will be scheduled during the signup process.

    The easiest way to schedule additional pickups and modify an existing pickup schedule is through our mobile app, which you can download here.

    Not quite sure about the app? You can also schedule your next pickup by texting “PICKUP” to 588-15. We will send you a personalized scheduling calendar to easily schedule a pickup without logging in to your Account.

    For additional scheduling options, you can always contact Customer Care with your preferred date or schedule pickups through your Account online at www.2ULaundry.com.

    A few things to note: When using the App or Online Account, pickup requests, cleaning notes, and location updates, must be made by midnight the night before pickup. Our Customer Care Team can accommodate same-day requests up until 7am the morning of the requested pickup.

    Customers have the option to schedule one-time pickups on an as-needed basis or recurring weekly schedules for more consistent service. You will always receive a reminder text the night before your pickup, giving you the option to cancel or reschedule your pickup if needed. Please make sure the primary phone number on your account receives texts!
