The 4 Steps To 1 Stop Wash’s Shirt Laundry Excellence
1 – Read The Care Label
Every shirt comes with a care label and this will tell us all we need to know about the best washing and drying methods, this information will help us preserve and extend the life cycle of your shirts.
2 – Spotting/Pre Inspection
At this stage, we thoroughly inspect the cuffs, collars, sleeves and pockets for built up grime, dirt, sweat marks and other stains. This part is crucial because cuffs and collars tend to attract the most sweat, dust and oil through day to day use.
3 – Cleaning
Depending on the care label instructions, we either machine wash or dry clean your shirts. We are in fact wet cleaners so do not use traditional dry cleaning equipment, find out more about eco friendly dry cleaning here. We use water based technology which produces far better cleaning results and is also much more gentle on the environment.
4 – Shirt Ironing
In 2018, we invested in a state of the art shirt pressing machine, in partnership with Barbanti, an Italian company who have made shirt press machines since 1957. Shirts are put onto the machine damp, straight from the washer and secured by strong clamps which help to keep the shirts in shape once hot steam is blown throughout. We can iron up to 300 shirts per hour with fantastic results every single time.

FAQ for our Shirt Laundry Service
Why is the price of washing and pressing shirts the same as pressing only?
Our state of the art shirt plant machine that carries out 95% of the pressing process requires items to be slightly damp. If they have already been washed, they will be dry by the time they come to our cleaning HQ, therefore they would have to be washed again ready to be put on shirt pressing machine.
Can I include dry clean only/delicate shirts (like silk) in the 5 shirt deal?
No, as the 5 shirt deal is only for shirts that can be laundered in a regular washing machine. Dry clean only and other delicate shirts like Tuxcedo shirts for example require more time and expertise and therefore are priced separately. Don’t worry, once your shirts reach us we can process this and let you know how much your order shirt will cost in total.
Can you repair shirts too?
Yes, we undertake most repairs which includes minor tears, rips, button repairs etc. Please let us know if you need this service in the Notes section when you place your order.
Where are my shirts cleaned?
At our very own in-house facility in Kings Cross, London. We don’t outsource our cleaning like other online laundry & dry cleaning companies, this allows us to optimize our processes and gives us the flexibility to offer an top class shirt laundry service at scale.
Are the hangers used by you recyclable?
Our hangers are indeed recyclable, we encourage all our customers to return their hangers when they reorder for reuse – we steam clean the hangers before making them available for use again.
What do I do before my first pick up?
Simply put your shirts that need to be cleaned in a bag, if you have regular machine wash shirts and dry clean only shirts in your order then please put these into separate bags. If possible, please point out any areas on your items where stains are by using some clear Sellotape or let us know in the Order Notes section when placing your booking. Then just have your phone nearby and wait for our driver notification to let you know of his arrival for pick up and we will return your newly cleaned shirts within the next 48-72 hours.
