Whether you are traveling for business or leisure, you likely don’t want to waste precious minutes on the road in a laundromat, especially not in a historic city such as Boston where there is so much to see and do. Nor with luggage fees what they are for flights do you want to have to pack a lot of extra clothes. The solution is to have a laundry service take care of your needs. The following three companies are well-known for their services in Boston. Each offers slightly different services and you can schedule services either on their websites or, in some cases, on their apps.


With a user-friendly app to help schedule and track your laundry, Rinse will pick up your laundry between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on the day of your choice and even provide personalized laundry bags.  Whether you prefer to schedule online, through their app or via text messages, Rinse pledges that each load is washed separately in its own machine, avoiding any mixing of garments. They’ll follow standard procedures unless you specify how you want something done, in which case they will do their best to accommodate requests. And just to eliminate any doubt, they’ll take a picture of your laundry being washed and send it to you. Standard turnaround is 3-4 days, but they do have rush options. Pricing for non-subscription services is $2.50 a pound with a $9.95 delivery fee and a $5 service fee.

They have an emissions-free fleet of electric vehicles and ones powered by pedal.  To provide their green services with a quick turn-around, they partner with reliable local laundry services and provide fair compensation to their partner drivers. the Boston neighborhoods they serve include the central areas such as Somerville, Cambridge and Quincy. Use their app to schedule both the pick up and return of your laundry. If you want, you can live track the delivery and your laundry status. They have a 24/7 customer service support in case you need to change anything about your order or want to talk to a representative.
