Who does their own laundry these days anyway?

Modern life’s busy. And, for the most part, we like it like that. We put our all into our work, committing to the long hours and deep headspace it takes to do a job well.

It takes time and effort just to keep up.

Many families have two breadwinners juggling schedules to share the load of work and home. Something’s got to give.

Every day we make choices about what we outsource – childcare, dog walking, car washing, house cleaning, grocery shopping, gardening, travel planning, gift shopping, driving, meal preparation and more.

These days, you can outsource just about anything. And you get to choose. So, why on earth are you still doing your own laundry?

Outsourced laundry services and ironing services are in good company.

With the tap of an app, you can summon an Uber car to your door, a Deliveroo meal to your workplace and an AirTasker handyperson to paint your side fence. And, now, with Laundry Point, you can outsource your washing, folding and ironing with the same ease.

Why wouldn’t you? There’s no guilt. It’s affordable. You have nothing to lose and just time to win back. Time to do the things you love and enjoy, rather than dealing with laundry tasks.

No need to keep carting your sweaty gym clothes and towels to and from the city every day – simply fill a basket and have the lot picked up from your workplace and delivered back all done. It’s like magic.

No need to learn the intricacies of washing machine cycles and the latest laundry products. Who’s got time for that when there are very capable, reliable people happy to do it for you?

And no need to stare down relentless waves of folding and ironing (and more folding), week in, week out. Not when the solution is just a tap away.
No wonder, fewer and fewer people are doing their own laundry.

The hokey pokey of household chores.

Do a couple of loads of washing, and you won’t have time to go to the gym. Iron next week’s business shirts tonight, and you won’t get to that wine tasting or the kids’ soccer. You could hide a large dog under the mountain of washing that needs folding, but you’ve got your sights on Netflix and chill.

It’s the hokey pokey of household chores – you put one thing in your schedule, you put another thing out. You can shake it all about and turn around, but you’re still not going to get everything done. That’s not what it’s all about. Something’s got to give.

Guilt-free and worry-free.

We live in an age when entrusting the care of your children (or your fur baby) to a third party is a part of every day life for many people. Which makes handing your clothes and linen over to a laundry service seem like a walk in the park. Especially when you know Laundry Point launderers love laundry … it’s their passion.

Are laundry services and ironing services life changers?

Anything that frees you up to do the things you love is life changing. What things are important in your life? What do you enjoy doing most? What brings you joy? We’re guessing washing and ironing don’t top your list. Maybe you yearn for more time with family, more dinners with your significant other, more time on the treadmill or more time working on that one big idea that will change everything.

The point is this: it’s your time and freeing yourself to enjoy it is your choice.
