App-based laundry service gives students back 2 ½ hours every week

Students at Texas A&M will now have the ability to spend more time studying and less time doing laundry with the launch of Tide Cleaners this fall.

The average college student spends 2 ½ hours every week doing laundry during the academic year. While sorting, washing and folding are valuable life skills, we know that students have a limited amount of time each day to study, work or engage in on-campus activities. Tide Cleaners gives back up to 80 hours a year by offering on-demand wash-and-fold and dry cleaning through an app-based locker service with locations across campus. The Tide standard of deep clean means that your student, while using laundry service, will experience the cleanest laundry solution possible. Tide Cleaners is a true laundry specialist. And, in light of COVID-19, Tide is committed to a completely contactless laundry experience. Nothing is more important to Tide than ensuring student safety.

Tide Cleaners is offered at 20+ universities across the US, helping thousands of students prioritize life over laundry. At Texas A&M, laundry trucks will be conveniently parked near The Corps, Northside, Southside, and White Creek residence halls. Along with laundry trucks, Tide will place 10 tech-enabled laundry lockers, with 24-hour access near the Garden Apartments for laundry drop off and pickup. Once a student drops of their dirty clothes, they can pick up 48 hours later clean and retail-style folded, or dry cleaned. Students can track their bag in the MyLaundry app, with notifications alerting them when their clothes are ready for pickup. The Tide Cleaners team will pick up and drop off orders daily from Monday – Friday.

The average student generates around 15-20 pounds of laundry a week, with some piling up more based on athletic participation, campus involvement, and work schedule. Texas A&M students will have several plan options to meet varying laundry needs, including:
