Launder Lust

New York: the city that never sleeps. But not the dry cleaners who never sleep. Because they start snoozing by 8pm. Or even 7pm. Or really any time that’d be convenient to pick up a suit.

For a ruthlessly efficient laundry service that never sleeps, try Dashlocker.

Just launched on the UES with plans to expand across the city, Dashlocker’s an always-open drop-off laundry that eschews flesh-and-blood clerks for the cold efficiency of unmanned lockers.

To use Dashlocker, simply sign up with a credit card online. You can then use that card to access Dashlocker’s UES location at any time 24/7, much like an ATM vestibule.

Grab a barcoded laundry bag, then lock your dirty duds in one or more of the empty PIN-coded lockers — Dashlocker doesn’t charge per locker. Their team will pick up your laundry, thoroughly de-louse it, and return it within 24-36 hours.

When your clothes are ready, you’ll receive a text or email — pick up your fresh threads at your leisure.

Dashlocker also photographs and meticulously catalogues each item, so you can view it online and enter special-care requests – e.g., “no starch” or “completely legitimate lipstick stain on collar.”
