Dry cleaning refers to cleaning clothes and fabrics using a chemical solvent rather than water. The cleaning is done with a liquid but the solvent contains little or no water and does not penetrate the fibres like water does in a washer. The dry cleaning process is typically used on clothes and fabrics that cannot withstand the rigors of a standard home washer and dryer and eliminates the need for more time-consuming hand washing.
Yes. Dry cleaning provides care solution to garments that can't be washed without a risk of damage to them. Grit, dust and grease can damage fabric if a garment remains untreated. Dry cleaning serves to extend the life of your garment by making them look as good as they can
Items such as leather, fur, and suede count as special care items. These may take up to two to three (2-3) weeks to clean. Other large items such as comforters and curtains may require up to three to five (3-5) days to clean.

At one of our top notch facilities!

The facility your clothes are taken to will depend on your exact location.
Cleaning women’s shirts and blouses costs slightly. This is because they typically have a more tailored fit and variable style than a man’s shirt. This means they must be hand-finished and require more time and attention in order to ensure a high-quality finish.
We clean most fabrics but leather, suede, velvet or fur items as well as other household items like curtail are cleaned at owner’s discretion. (See our policy on high risk fabric). In the rare event that we receive your clothes and cannot clean them, we will notify you as soon as possible.

Dry Cleaning

Your clothes are in safe hands and incidents of damage are extremely rare – but we understand it’s a natural point of concern. That’s why we’re fully insured!
In the very rare event your item is damaged, we’ll reimburse you in accordance with our compensation policy. Please refer to the T&Cs for more details.
In the unlikely event of loss or damage to an item, Pickndrop will pay compensation in line with the Fair Compensation Guidelines as provided by the Textile Services Association

Please don’t add silk, leather, fur, velvet or cashmere or any dry clean only items to your Wash, Tumble Dry & Fold order as they aren’t typically suitable for machine washing or tumble drying.
Bedding and towelling should also be removed and ordered separately; as such large items can prevent a good quality of cleaning.
If you can, well and good, otherwise, don’t worry about sorting clothes – we’ll do that for you. All you need to do is make sure you don’t include dry clean items with a Wash, Tumble Dry & Fold order.

Pre-paid Bundles

Pre-paid bundles such as 50x Pre-paid Shirts include a large number of items at a greatly discounted rate. You can include as many items as you like in your first collection, and then we’ll email you a reusable voucher code so you can send us the rest whenever you’re ready.
For example, if you order a 50x Pre-paid Shirts bundle then you send us 5 shirts with your initial collection. We’ll then email you a special code which you can use this to redeem your remaining 45 pre-paid shirts whenever you want.
Pre-paid bundle vouchers codes can be reused as many times as you want, over as many orders as you want. Relevant items included in your initial collection are automatically included in the bundle.

When ordering with your pre-paid voucher you can decide how many items to hand over when we collect. We’ll update you once we’ve itemised everything at our facility.
All pre-paid vouchers expire 12 months after purchase and have a minimum order of £15. Pre-paid vouchers cannot be used for items included in already discounted bundles, such as The 9 to 5 or High Five.
Vouchers cannot be used to purchase pre-paid bundles due to the fact that they are already heavily discounted. Any vouchers used to purchase pre-paid bundles will be automatically removed at checkout

Some banks may show the capture as a recent transaction, but we only collect when we start cleaning your items.
We accept Visa/MasterCard/American Express cards, both online and at drop off points
You’re welcome to tip your Pickndrop Agent if you wish to and all tips go directly to the Agents, but we cannot currently accept payments in cash.
