The load is washed at a 30-degree cycle and tumble dried on a medium heat. As We process a high volume, we will not be able to cater to personal requirements (e.g. temperature, washing powders, etc.). Please note that the Items are not ironed.
We will separate the clothes into lights and darks for you. Although We will take the utmost care in doing this, we will accept no responsibility if there is any bleeding or colour transfer during the cleaning process.

We will not be liable for damage to Items as We wash by the load and do not inspect the care labels of each garment. For Items that need to be specially treated e.g. leather, silk, cashmere, fur, velvet and other delicate garments, please ensure that these Items can be machine washed and tumble dried. We will not be liable for Items damaged that have been processed in a tumble dryer although the Items state they are suitable for this
