Bagging gold in our Expat Living’s Reader’s Choice Awards is a real honour. So it’s no surprise that For the Love of Laundry – which won Gold for Best Dry Cleaning and Laundry in 2023 – is not your average laundry service! With its iconic green storefronts and branded fleet of vans, the trusted dry cleaner processes over 1,000 pieces of clothing a day. And that’s without using a single harsh chemical in the process. We find out about their non-toxic dry cleaning services in Singapore.
A spotlight on solvents used for dry cleaning and laundry services in Singapore
Most traditional dry cleaners use a petroleum-based solvent (known as perc) that can damage clothes over time and pose serious health and environmental risks – from headaches, skin irritations and dizziness, to an increased risk of cancer. Not surprisingly, perc has been banned in some countries. It’s also classified as a toxic air pollutant and potential carcinogen by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
On the flip side, For the Love of Laundry uses the latest technology for safe and gentle chemical-free laundry services. And it’s the only laundry service in Singapore to do so. GreenEarth is non-allergenic, safe for sensitive skin, toxin-free, odourless and planet-friendly, all the while being better for your clothes, too. Derived from sand, the all-natural liquid silicone penetrates even the most delicate fabrics and lubricates away any residue.
Booming business: Unique laundry services
For the Love of Laundry was founded in 2011 by four family friends – Wee Teng Chuen, Wee Teng Wen, Russell Yu and Keiri Okabayashi. They were equally passionate about the environment and delivering eco-friendly laundry and non-toxic dry cleaning services in Singapore. Fast forward 12 years and the company has six branches island-wide at United Square, One Nassim Road, i12 Katong, Asia Square Tower 2, RV Point and the upcoming One Holland.
At the heart of their success is a team of dedicated laundry heroes. Each and every garment they receive is handled with the utmost care, leaving it refreshed, renewed and ready to wear time and time again.
