Laundry, that bane of my existence. That chore that you always have to accomplish but is never finished. Bébé Chéri, the delight of my life, insists on « helping » me…what a little dear. Usually he unfolds whatever I have folded, but he does help carry the laundry to the machine, and quite proudly too. I made up a little song for when we are doing laundry that goes to the same tune as the theme song from Pippin the musical « We’ve Got Magic to Do ». It helps ease the loathing I have of laundry. I sing, « We’ve got laundry to do, me and you, we’ve got clothing to wash and fold; we’ve got shirts to dry and hang up high, so many things to iron why, do we have so much, laundry to do! ». Yes, we are silly at the Chéri household.
And then one day, a company came along and offered to have me test their service, ZipJet. A laundry service. But not just any laundry service, because those exist on every other street corner in Paris. This is a phone app laundry service that picks up and drops off right at your door. All we have to do is put it in the laundry bag that THEY provide. ZipJet is my new favorite delivery service. (Lately I am enjoying the new fad in Paris of delivered products and services, it just makes life so much easier!)
So I made my order on the app (FYI : you need the newest version of Android on your phone or tablet). If you have an issue with your order, like we did, you can email or call the service line which is very quick to contact you back. You can even modify your delivery time before the day of delivery right in the application. Or if you miss your delivery like I did (oops!) you can contact customer service again and set up a new time.
ZipJet will take care of your shirts, suits, clothes, sheets, blankets, coats, and any textiles you need cleaned.
There is nothing like being able to hand someone your laundry and not having to worry about it as it lies around your living room waiting to be dealt with. It is true freedom. Freedom from laundry. JipJet saved me from hours of ironing and I am so grateful! And when I just can’t deal with the laundry, I know all I have to do is open the app and in a few clicks, be free. It is like magic! « We’ve got magic to do, me and you… »
