What is Classic Cleaners’ Wash, Dry, Fold?
Our Wash, Dry, Fold service simplifies the chore of laundry for our customers. Whether you drop off your laundry in large laundry bags we provide, or whether we pick it up for you, free of charge, your laundry is cleaned by a Classic Cleaners trained professional, folded and returned back to you in recyclable boxes.
What clothing is considered Wash, Dry, Fold clothing?
Wash, Dry, Fold clothing is clothing you would normally wash yourself in a washer and dryer. Generally this is clothing such as jeans, t-shirts, socks, undergarments, sleepwear, etc. that has a care label indicating that the item is safe for the washer and dryer.
Where are my clothes cleaned?
Many of our neighborhood store locations have washers and dryers on site for our employees to launder your items. If a store location does not have the ability to launder items on site, and if you are a route customer, your items are cleaned at our plant at 8071 Knue Road.
Do I need to schedule an appointment to have my laundry cleaned?
No – simply bring your items into the nearest Classic Cleaners location and we will detail your order into our system just like we do dry cleaned items. Wash, Dry, Fold items are laundered in the order in which they are received and are usually completed by the next business day. If you are part of our route service, your items will be returned to you the next time your route driver is in your neighborhood. Our route drivers are in the area twice a week – either Monday and Thursday, or Tuesday and Friday – days vary by location.
Do I need to provide my own laundry detergent?
No, we use gentle, highly effective laundering methods and the highest-quality detergents, however if you have a preference we can use the detergent and fabric softener of your choice (we retain these for you and inform you when supplies are low).
Do I separate my clothes?
There is no need for you to separate your clothing. Simply place everything in the bag we provide. We will look at every item’s care label and follow the instructions on how the item should be laundered. If a “dry clean only” item or men’s laundered and machine pressed shirt is in your “wash, dry, fold” bag, we will detail them into our system as such and clean them according to their care label.
What if an item has a stain?
When you drop off your items, please let our trained customer service representative know there is an item that needs special care.
