(Updated at 10:40 a.m. Wednesday) A New York-based startup company has expanded its app-centric laundry and dry cleaning business to a large swath of Northwest and Northeast D.C.

Residents of Logan Circle, Shaw and some other District neighborhoods now can get their clothes cleaned through Cleanly’s app and website, which allow customers to schedule laundry pick-ups and give laundering instructions on a smartphone or a computer, the company announced today.

Regular laundry costs $1.99 per pound for washing and folding. Dry cleaning is $5.50 for shirts and $6 for pants and skirts. Delivery is free for orders that are more than $30. Otherwise, it is $4.99.

“We love D.C.’s energy and are excited to help relieve Washingtonian’s of one of the more time consuming everyday tasks,” Cleanly CEO and co-founder Tom Harari said in a statement. “We look forward to becoming part of the community and joining the ranks of fellow D.C. startups as we continue to grow.”

Started last year in Manhattan, Cleanly has made the District the first leg of its expansion outside of New York. The company also is looking to bring its service to more neighborhoods in D.C., according to a Cleanly spokeswoman.

  1. Seems expensive. I pay less than $2 per shirt and about $5 for slacks.

  2. My thoughts exactly. After Washio shut down operations earlier this year, it’s hard to see how these guys are going to make it but I wish them good luck nonetheless.
