Laundry is a time-taking task and has become a problem for people, especially the working population. The working-class population has significantly increased over the last few years, thereby contributing to the demand for online laundry services due to their convenience. Time constraints due to increasing work pressure & hours restrict people from doing their laundry, which has given rise to on-demand laundry service. This business is mainly driven by the increasing number of working women worldwide.Clean and fresh laundry is an important part of making a hygienic and healthy lifestyle. Cleaning dirty and used clothes and other laundry items daily requires a huge amount of clean water, washing appliances, detergents & soaps, and a proper washing area.

In addition to washing and dry cleaning, they offer ironing, folding, and delivery of all linen products. These extended services are attracting more customers from the hotel industry.
