Laundry Service & Shops in Manila
Ah, laundry. Most people claim there’s nothing that smells better than fresh laundry. Today’s fast-paced lifestyle wouldn’t normally allow someone to do their own laundry.
FRESH LAUNDRY. No one does it like this in the city.
Sure, there are a lot of affordable washing machines out on the market, but that can cost you anywhere from P2,500 for your low-end, single tub washer to at least P10,000 for a washer-dryer. You can also learn to hand wash your laundry, but even if you master it, it would still take you at least half the day to do all your laundry.
Options for doing laundry would include hiring someone to do it for you, which is okay; but the hassles of going through several people is not really something everyone is willing to do.
The best option nowadays would be going for laundry shops. They are highly accessible, often placed in business districts or malls. You can also go there on your own time, or not at all. Most small laundry services offer to pick-up and drop-off your laundry at your preferred time.
Here are some of the best in and around Makati:
One of the most trusted names in the metro, Lavandera Ko has branches all over Metro Manila. It’s a full-service laundromat, so you don’t have to worry about them not being able to dry clean that bespoke suit. For their branch in Bonifacio Global City, their rates are as follows:
• Wash/Dry/Fold: P39 per kilo (minimum of 5 kilos)
• Wash/Dry/Fold – Blankets/Curtains/Towels and Comforters: P90 per kilo (minimum of 3 kilos)
