February 24, 2017 – Stamford, CT. Commuter Cleaners, a top home pickup and delivery dry cleaning service operating in Stamford Connecticut and environs, is proud to announce an important new blog post comparing “old-school” wash and fold service vs. “new school” home pickup and delivery dry cleaning and laundry services for busy persons in Stamford, Greenwich, New Canaan and other communities north of New York City.
“Wash and fold does not mean the same thing in the 21st century as it did in the 20th,” explained Paul McDonald, CEO of Commuter Cleaners. “We’re finding that consumers may not realize that they don’t have to use wash and fold, anymore. Instead, they can use a home pickup and delivery laundry and dry cleaning service to gain the benefits of wash and fold without the hassles of bringing their dirty clothes into a cleaners. Our post explains this incredible difference in detail.”

Wash and Fold: So 20th Century
In the 20th century, people had few choices when it comes to doing their laundry. The advent of the washing machine in the 1920s was heralded as a major innovation, saving women from the back-breaking task of washing clothes by hands. Not surprisingly, in the 1920s and especially after World War II nearly every American home purchased a washer and dryer. Apartment dwellers, however, were not so fortunate and many of them continued to have to go to a laundromat. Laundromat owners realized that they could offer “wash and fold” services, and more affluent consumers could “outsource” their laundry problems to the laundromat owner. The service known as “wash and fold” was born. Still, consumers had to bring their dirty laundry into the laundromat, and then pick it up later. By the late 20th century, many consumers were frustrated even with this level of service. By the year 2000 with the advent of the Internet, however, a new concept was born: home pickup and delivery dry cleaning and laundry. Industry leaders like Commuter Cleaners began to offer a service where their employees would pickup and deliver the clean / dirty clothes at the consumer’s home. With new mobile app technologies, this service is even easier. The consumer can literally use an app to communicate with the cleaner. Even with the amazing advances in wash and fold technology, many consumers are unaware that home pickup and delivery service even exists. Accordingly, Commuter Cleaners is doing blog, social media, and other forms of outreach to inform busy Stamford, Greenwich, and New Canaan residents that the future has arrived. “Wash and fold,” so to speak, is so “20th century,” and “home pickup and delivery” is so, “21st.”
