Take A Load Off

There’s no way around it—laundry sucks. But a new Chicago dry cleaning app, Starchup, is here to do the dirty work for you. Download it for free, and choose to have your clothes dry-cleaned or washed/folded, then schedule a convenient pick-up time. Most of Starchup’s partners (including Greener Cleaner) use chemical-free, non-toxic cleaning products and many are environmentally friendly. Each cleaner sets their own pricing, but wash/fold can run from $1.25 - $2.50 per pound and pick-up and delivery are free. You’ll receive notifications via the app throughout the process and payment is charged to your credit card on file. The cleaner will return your clothes spit-up free, and you’ll receive a canvas bag for laundry and a hanger bag for dry cleaning, both of which are reusable.
