You may be thinking who would
pay for such a service and would it even work?! I can't promise that it
will work but I can tell you I know someone that does do this business
and she is doing rather well with it too.
This business is just as it
sounds, they drop off their laundry, and you wash, dry, fold and iron
the clothes. They should supply you with the laundry detergent and fabric
softener of their choice and hangers for anything you will need to put
on a hanger rather than fold.
You can start this business
by posting flyers around your neighborhood, at daycares, the local grocery
mart and the like. I for one can tell you I would love a service just
as this if it was reasonably priced. If you were to do just a few loads
of wash a day, this could easily add up!
You can also add a twist to
this business and pick up any dry cleaning your customers may need so
they only have to make one trip to your home.
Positive: This can be done
while you are at home. You will have to keep track of how much your water
and electric bill go up so you can factor that into the fee you charge
Negative: It may take you some
time to get regular customers but word of mouth goes a long way! Be sure
to drop off some flyers at the local corporate offices where you know
they work fulltime and may not have the time to do their own laundry -
perfect for you!
