Frequently Asked Questions

Your First Collection

I’ve booked the evening slot and I might not be home by 7.00pm, what should I do?
Don't worry, just reply to your reminder text message asking us to deliver after 8:00pm or another day.
Can I trust you with my clothes?
You certainly can, and over a thousand people do. All of our drivers and cleaners are subject to extensive testing and training and we have robust systems in place to track every item that is collected by ihateironing.
What should I put my clothes in to?
You can just put your clothes in to any bag for the first collection. We’ll then give you one of our nice laundry bags for future collections.
What do I do if I have any special requests?
You can discuss them by calling the office or talk to one of the drivers who are all experts in dry cleaning and laundry.
Do I need to separate my laundry?
If you want more than one service, please separate items by category (dry clean, wash and press, wash and fold, press only).

Our Service

Why are women’s shirts more expensive than men’s shirts?
We’ve invested in the latest technology for pressing men’s shirts in most of our cleaning centres as they are our most popular items which means we can do them 50% quicker than ladies' shirts.

We have offices in Brixton and Putney and a network of cleaning centres across the country.
