Each night, your comforter dry cleaning becomes more filthy, unseen by the naked eye. The body naturally loses dead skin cells, along with sweat and other fluids, as you sleep.
Every night, when you sleep, you lose between a quarter and a half a litre of water. After being soaked, your comforter’s fabric expands, making it unusable until it dries. Moisture evaporates during the day, causing the material to contract once more. Over time, this wears down the blanket to the point that it is less effective at keeping you warm.
You also lose between 0.5–1.5 grammes of skin per night. Skin flakes are a favourite food of house dust mites. Despite being undetectable by the human eye, house dust mites can trigger unpleasant allergic reactions like wheezing, itchy eyes, and shortness of breath. The thought of a half a million crawling animals making their home in your blanket is enough to give anyone the creeps, even if they aren’t allergic.
Although you may change your sheets and pillowcases weekly, how often do you change the comforter?
Once or twice a year, Dhobi London suggests taking your comforter in for a professional cleaning.
Do you recommend washing or dry cleaning your comforter?
The material of your comforter will determine whether it is better to wash it or dry clean it. Wool, down, and synthetic comforters are the three most popular options. There’s a unique upkeep procedure for each substance. To guarantee that your blanket retains its heat and fluffiness through multiple washes, it is important to carefully follow the care recommendations provided.
Duvets made of wool need to be dry cleaned.
Wool possesses a covering of lanolin that is soft, protective, and water resistant; yet, wool also shrinks when exposed to water.
Comforters, both down and synthetic, need to be laundered often.
Unlike down comforters, synthetic ones may be laundered in the washing machine. However, simply shoving your blanket into a regular or small washing machine won’t do the trick. Also, a sizable clothes dryer is required.
As a result, you should either take your duvet to the laundromat or get it cleaned professionally.

To get you started, we’ve compiled some answers to some frequently asked questions below.
What is the price?
It’s easy to use our wash-and-fold service because we charge per bag rather than per load. Your bill will be determined by how many Dhobi London you request us to ship to you. Our normal wash-and-fold service has a flat rate, and if you sign up for a monthly subscription, you can save a lot of money. Dry cleaning at our shop is charged on a per-item basis.
Strap the bag shut such that the neck is too small for a coffee mug to fit through and you won’t have to pay the $7 more for overloading the bag.
What capacity does an Dhobi London have for dirty clothes?
It measures 22 inches by 28 inches.
So, how is Dhobi London special?
We exclusively use non-toxic, environmentally friendly cleaning products, safe for you and your family. While doing laundry, you may reuse our laundry bags and our machines are made to save up to 30% on energy costs. More significantly, we promise you will always be happy when you’re with us.
I was wondering if Dhobi London offered a laundry service.
Yes. Dhobi London is a subscription service that washes and folds your laundry once a month. Choose a convenient plan and tell us when you’d like your orders delivered and picked up, and we’ll take care of the rest.
What happens if I use more than the allotted number of bags each month?
If you need more wash and fold bags than your monthly allotment, they will cost you at the standard per-bag rate. There are no hidden costs or surcharges with any of our subscription options.
Do you have a minimum for wash-and-fold orders?
No. Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we have decided to temporarily lift all order minimums.
In what time frame can I expect a response?
Normal turnaround time for Wash & Fold orders is between 24 and 48 hours after pickup. All dry cleaning and wash and fold orders of four (4) bags or more are guaranteed to be delivered within 72 hours of collection.
Orders for dry cleaning placed on the weekend need an extra day to be cleaned.
There will be an exception made for custom and bulk orders.
