What a Difference an Iron makes!

One of the most frequent questions we are asked here at the Home & Dry HQ is “What is the point of ironing clothes?”. We know the wonderful ways an iron can help protect your clothing as well as making them look and feel good.  Don’t believe us? Discover more in this blog post!

Look Smart, Feel Smart!

Whether you are going to a job interview or off on a night out, when you look great you feel great! De-wrinkling your clothes will help to make you look smart and can leave your garments smelling clean and fresh.

Improves Quality

Ironing not only gets rid of unwanted clothing wrinkles but is great for improving clothing quality and ensures a longer life span. Ironing can also maintain the colour and texture of your clothing, keeping you looking good as new!

Eliminates Shrinkage

The one thing we all dread when washing clothes is shrinkage! The one way you can guarantee to keep shrinkage at bay is by ironing.

Kill Germs

It is easy to believe that once your clothes have been freshly washed in the washing machine they become germ free. Unfortunately, the cleaning process kills some of the bacteria that lurk on your clothing but not all. Ironing is the best way to kill the microorganisms that could still be living on your clothing!

We understand that ironing can be the last thing you look forward too during a busy week and not everyone has the time to dedicate to it. At Home and Dry we love the jobs you hate! If you are looking for a high-quality laundry service, then contact us today!

Hi Julia!


How long has Home and Dry been running?

I started Home and Dry in 2002- s0 we are now in our 16th year! It’s been a roller-coaster, but also incredibly rewarding. We’ve had the permanent laundry coming up for 4 years but I can still remember what it was like starting the laundry service from my garage!  Read more

Tailor Made Especially For You

One of the most popular requests we receive from customers is for “Invisible Mending.” The term “Invisible Mending” (which we can all assume means repairing a rip or a tear so well that you would never notice it had even been repaired) dates back more than 200 years and explains the highly skilled and time-consuming method of repairing damage to cloth by taking single threads from a hem, side seam or other concealed part of the clothes of the same type and re weaving them over the damaged area to make as near perfect repairs as is humanly possible.
