Ridding your laundry basket of the dry cleaning languishing at the bottom at the touch of a button has never been easier.
Once home to a wealth of dry cleaning apps, the number has dwindled in the past few years due to consolidation in the industry. Still. we’ve identified several of the remaining services that promise to turn around your clothes in 24-hours, wash your bedding and even repair your shoes.
Here’s our pick of the best...
I hate ironing
Aptly titled Ihateironing.com operates from 7am-8.30pm Monday to Saturday and serves the whole of Greater London as well as St Albans.
