Ironic question since Dhoby Ghaut means washing place or something like that. Tons of places pick up and deliver. I'd try the yellow pages.

it is ironic that i can't find a dry cleaner in Dhoby Ghaut. Apparently the dry cleaner in the basement of the Dhoby Ghaut train station has closed down...

maybe you can try the park mall? the deep red building? not sure if there is any in there. i would recommend the laundry lodge, very affordable prices but i think the nearest one is in raffles place mrt..

I work around that area. The nearest one seems to the The Laundry Lodge that is recently opened in Somerset MRT. :D

The address is B1-04, (turn left after the exit gantries at the control station, is just a few steps from the atm machines). I use them sometimes as they are more affordable than presto, they have free pick up and delivery services on Saturday. Think you can call their hotline at 6100-4526.

In fact, i am still seriously considering whether want to take up their deal for singles like me. [-o< Think is $165 dollars for 4 weeks, they will delivery and pick up clothes each sat. each week can enjoy laundry or dryclean for 4 sets of blouse/skirts/pants and 3kg of load wash, think should take care of my towels etc. still thinking, cos lazy to wash myself :oops:

Do you think this is worthwhile? or should i be more hardworking and wash myself :lol:

not sure if that laundry service for $165/month makes sense...

I'm getting a maid for about that per month to clean my apartment, do my laundry and iron my shirts...the only problem is that i need to go to a dry cleaner for my suits and pants...

I think it's probably better to spend that much on the maid, so you get your apartment cleaned too...

The Laundry Lodge

If you are sending clothes to The Laundry Lodge , do be careful as they have a clause saying that they will only pay up to 10 times the amount you paid for the laundry . The last time they damage my dress that cost $300 and refused to pay any damages. They used some harsh chemicals and denied responsibility.

Bump, I am now living in Singapore near the Dhoby Ghaut MRT stop and was wondering which dry cleaner you would recommend that does pick-up. Also, what are the general rates for washing and ironing a shirt or pant and the cost for dry cleaning a shirt or pant.

dry cleaner

I had my lunch at dhoby ghaut mrt Xchange yesterday, and i think there is a new laundry shop which just opened opposite the clothes alteration shop. Chirpy shop design with a sun on the facade.

maybe you can check it out. Laundry lodge is no longer around though. At times i go abit further to selegie area. but it is kinda far for me. So this new outlet will be easy for me in future. Hope they are good.
