Life is one great balancing act. Between long, seemingly never-ending work hours and ever decreasing ‘quality time’ spent with the family – your time is a precious resource. Quite simply, it’s impossible to do it all on your own and the first tasks to be outsourced are the everyday chores – cooking, cleaning, washing.. the list is just endless!

Most often, we have are left with little choice but to go with the time tested ‘trial and error’ method in choosing the service providers we patronize. So, when it comes to patronizing a laundry service, it’s good to have a basic criterion of expectations to evaluate the whether your laundry service works for you.

Every minute counts, so we’ve put together a master list 10 factors that make a good laundry service. Here goes!

Relief

Long term client servicing and management is everything. The service should unfold in a manner that is seamless, giving you one less thing to worry about as opposed to adding to your stress. Basically, when you handover your clothes to the service, you should feel relief in knowing that the job will be taken care of, that they’ve got you covered.

Trust

Your clothes make your appearance and their maintenance directly impacts how you are socially perceived. For this and many other reasons, you should be able to completely trust the efficiency and integrity of the laundry service you are using.

Time Management and Efficiency

A bad service will have you wondering when exactly your clothes will be returned or worse, return clothes that aren’t yours! Time management is essential because the very purpose of a laundry service is convenience, if you have to re-center your life around pick-ups and drop-offs – it’s not going to work. Precision and efficiency is crucial for the service to actually be a solution, rather than a problem by itself.

Flexibility

You want a laundry service that is flexible so it easily fits into your hectic schedule, and not the other way around. Again, it should be solution-oriented and preferably one that is willing to customize its service to suit your needs.

Loss or Damage Policy

The laundry service needs to have a fair and speedy loss or refund policy in case of damage or carelessness. Inform yourself of the policy beforehand so you can take the correct recourse in due time.

Value-added Service

Thoroughly understand the ins and outs of the service. Can you set up a schedule that is long-term? Cancel or change as you deem fit? What about that emergency, extra pick up? Be aware of the value added services offered so you can access them when you need it most.

Privacy

Privacy is non-negotiable, patronize a service that respects this value. You should feel safe knowing that your laundry service doesn’t, quite literally, ‘wash your dirty linen in public’ or share information about your choices with external entities, whoever that may be.

Be Heard

You have needs and requests, be it special care for that delicate dress or a detergent preference. Whatever your need – the laundry service needs to listen closely and act in accordance to your instructions, big or small, they must take your issues seriously.

Tracking

It is good to have the facility to track the progress of your order as well as receive updates on the same so you know what to expect and can plan accordingly.

No Hidden Costs

This is rather straight-forward. Hidden costs in any form are not only a rude shock but a major deal breaker.

In a Nutshell

You want a service that is upfront, committed to customer satisfaction, aim for a job well done, value and sustain long term patronage.

Christmas with Fun Frolic and Fashion

Fashion looks best on you when you feel great inside. Christmas brings along happiness and a lot of socializing. It is the season to eat, drink and make merry. Apart from decorating your home and Christmas tree, partying and hosting is on the cards, hence looking your best is your first priority.

‘A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous’- Coco Chanel. One is never overdressed or underdressed with lovely long, soft and flowy outfits in gorgeous georgettes. Lacy or netted fabrics are all set to steal the show. Dazzling tunics worn with palazzos, tights, churidars or pencil pants also look great when worn with the right accessories. Bright colours like purple, orange, magenta, red, royal blue and golden yellow brings out the festive vibes.

Slim-fitting trousers and body hugging clothes give a nymph-like appearance but wearing them for dinner parties may give you a feeling of having a tight gastric band around you after an eight-course meal. Apart from the vibrant colours, metallic hues are making quiet a statement with their sparkle and sheen. Bring the party alive with dazzling metallic hues, but too much of metallica can make you look and feel like a robot. If you are the gorgeous kind, you would not need any accessories to go with a gold sequined off-shoulder maxi dress. A draped bronze skirt or feathered skirt will turn heads when paired with a simple cashmere top and boots. With an elegant floor-length backless black silk dress you will look like you’ve just stepped off the red-carpet.

As the saying goes ‘Santa has to be a man, as no women would wear the same suit every year!’ Break free of the same colour and design of suits every year. Invest on a slim fitting black suit. Look for shades of green or grey that matches you best as these shades exude a classy look in men.

Men must always dress well but still keep it simple. Turn heads and make the stares linger with a jet black suit. Remember, all men look best in black and white. Wear a black sophisticated tie or a bold-coloured silk tie or just throw a matching scarf to turn the heat on. The rule is to make it simple but yet significant!

Irrespective of the sexes, if your fashion compliments your upbeat mood you are ready to conquer the festive season!

Beat the Monsoon Laundry Woes

Laundry woes tend to go from bad to worse in monsoon. For most of us, taking care of our laundry needs in monsoon becomes quite a headache. Especially when it comes to drying clothes, we run out of places to dry our clothes in monsoon. While one or two garments drying indoors is alright, a whole bucket load of wet, dripping clothes is definitely not good for your health. The wet clothes not only increase the humidity of the room but also form a perfect base for the growth of fungus, moulds and other infectious organisms.

We, at FabricSpa, consider your health and hygiene to be of paramount importance. Therefore, we bring you a simple list of techniques to battle your way out of the little laundry woes in monsoon. But, remember, for expert fabric care services, you can also trust us.

1. Use hangers to dry your clothes:

Place the clothes on a hanger, as you would while hanging the garment in your cupboard. Now place the hanger on your cloth line. This helps the clothes dry faster as they are spread out and come into greater contact with the breeze.

  1. Let them drip dry first:

Let the clothes drip dry in the bathroom first. By doing this, you can ensure that your clothes will be partially dry before you bring them into the room. This will help your clothes dry faster.

  1. Beat the smell naturally:

Beat the damp and musty smell in your clothes by drying them indoors, you can try using a light fragrance incense sticks. The fumes will help dry the clothes and give them a lovely fragrance.

  1. Keep the moisture levels in the room low:

Place a sack of sea salt or unrefined salt in the corner of the room to absorb the moisture in the room, reducing the risk of mould and fungus taking hold in your home.

Finally, during the hours that the sun actually does come out, make sure you keep all your windows and doors open. This will allow sunlight to enter your home and disinfect it.

  • You can immediately soak garments in cold water for 20-30 minutes.
  • Put your clothes with liquid detergent and wash in warm water.
