Working at home doing laundry? Yes, you read that right!
Most of us really don't enjoy laundry, but we have to do it anyway. And while the prospect of doing laundry for other people may not sound that appealing, you can earn an income or even just a little extra money this way!
Today, I have a list of different companies that hire people to do laundry for their clients. And in addition to the companies that hire, this is also something you can go into business for yourself.
There are many people who hate laundry and have the money to outsource it. This is why there's always a demand for laundry service.
So if you think you can stand doing laundry enough to turn it into a money-making opportunity, keep reading.
5 Ways to Work at Home Doing Laundry
1 – Laundry Care
Laundry Care is one of the biggest names nationwide in laundry services. They are regularly looking for people to work under their brand name doing laundry for clients in their own homes.
There is an app you can download that makes it easy to accept or decline laundry requests. You can cash out your earnings any day of the week via direct deposit, so you're getting paid when you want.
You earn around $20 per bag of laundry.
Note that because this opportunity is more you starting your own business under the Laundry Care name rather than working directly for them, there is a cost to get started.
The fee required from Laundry Care is so you can get your starter kit from them (between $20 and $100). It's not every expensive and the FAQ on their website explains more about it.
You must have reliable laundry equipment and transportation since you will be responsible for picking up your client's laundry and delivering it back to them.
2 – Hampr
Hampr is always looking for washers to do laundry for their clients. You are free to set your own schedule with this opportunity.
You must be at least 18 to apply, and you must be able to pass a background check.
Washers are required to have up to date smartphones (Android or iPhone), driver's license, and a washing machine that is at least 4.2 cubic feet in size.
For pay, you'll receive 70 percent of what Hampr charges clients, plus you get to keep all your tips.
Payments are made weekly via direct deposit into your bank.
