Get Impressed with a new Laundry app taking over Hong Kong

4 February, 2016

Laundry made easy!

Hands up if your laundry is piling up in your apartment as you’re working overtime in the office (us, us, us!). And you’re not going to do it tonight are you? Maybe in the morning? Nope, us neither! Who has time to do laundry when there is so much fun to be had in this crazy city of Hong Kong. Oh, wait, you don’t have a washing machine either? Maybe that could be a reason we aren’t getting our laundry done. Another reason may be that all the launderettes close before we’ve even had time to sign off from emails for the day. If only we could find a simple and easier way of airing our dirty laundry (wait, are we still talking about clothes here?!)… Enter Impressed, Hong Kong’s first on-demand, door-to-door dry cleaning and laundry service!

As nearly everything these days is controlled by our handheld device (which we just we can’t seem to live without), why not control your laundry with it too? Impressed have done just that. Founded by three ambitious entrepreneurs, Impressed is an easy-to-use app that aims to fundamentally change and improve how dry cleaning and laundry is done in our city. Make your life that little bit easier with the conveniently provided free pickup and delivery service, which comes with a minimum order of just $180. You also don’t have to worry about timing and fitting laundry around your busy schedule, as the extended service hours last until 12am, 7 days a week.

How does it work?

  1. Download the Impressed iOS or Android app and create an account
  2. Select the items that need to be washed
  3. Enter your address (will be saved for future orders) and select your preferred pickup and delivery time
  4. Enter any special cleaning or pickup/delivery instructions before placing order
  5. And just like that… an Impressed staff member will be at your door, at your selected pickup time, then your clothes will be dry-cleaned, washed, folded and delivered back to you at your selected delivery time. Easy!

What’s more, you can even track your cleaning process and pickup/delivery status with real-time in-app status updates. There are 5 stages to the process: Order Placed, Items Received, Wash Finished, On The Way, and Delivered. This laundry service platform couldn’t have come sooner, saving all us work-alcoholics time and money. We have to say, we are kind of, erm… Impressed!

Why not try it for yourself? Impressed are offering 30% off just for Sassy readers! Just use promo code “sassy30” when placing an order. Offer expires on Saturday, 30 April, 2016.
