Mumbai monsoons bring two things – fresh breeze and clothes that don’t dry in that breeze. We also understand the pain of living alone, and the tough task of washing clothes sans washing machine.

For the lazy bones {hi-five}, we’ve rounded up budget laundry services that offer free pick-up and drop. Now no more hanging clothes on chairs and doors for three days at a stretch.

Be Clean

With a self-explanatory name, Be Clean offers free pick up and drop of load of clothes after washing, ironing and folding your clothes. Look no further because they also offer dry cleaning services as well, along with shoe and bag dry cleaning. Just download their app ,and place your order, or do it on their website for a pick up. They have different rate cards and packages per month, for couples, family and individuals. However, the delivery only happens 3 days later. Heads up, they only offer services from Kandivali to Bandra, so sorry SoBo, bad luck.
