Drive Cleaning

Pick-up laundering service seems to becoming more and more common. Last August we featured Mudroom Laundry, which really brought in a mixed bag of reviews. In this week's Time Out, we read about Drive Cleaning, over a three year old service that seems to have a more significant (and positive) presence than Mudroom. What they do:

- dry cleaning, laundering, ironing, folding
- free delivery
- email invoices
- automatic monthly billing
- service neighborhoods from 95th (South Side) to Evanston (way North)

They say: Drive Cleaning was founded because we know what you've been going through. We've worked those long hours and weren't able to get to the cleaners in time. We've lived downtown without a vehicle and were forced to walk back and forth to the cleaners, and just like everyone else, we hated doing the laundry!

There is a 15-pound minumum (running $.95/lb for wash-n-fold service; compare that to Mudroom's intro rate of 50 lbs for $15 = Big difference). BUT, from the readers' reviews of Mudroom, the pricing, perks and experience of Drive Cleaning seems worth the switch.
