Review: MINK Laundry09:27:00
MINK Laundry, enter stage left. So right before I left for Kolkata, the guys at MINK got in touch with me asking me if I'd like to review their services. Back then, still a dewey eyed newcomer in the crazy working world, I just wasn't sure if the rates they charged were worth it. I mean, couldn't I simply find someone in my neighbourhood to do it? Well, cut back to present day when I've completed a short stint working crazy hours and still of course dressing like I'm about to conquer the world, one meeting at a time. (yes, not as crazy as the Masters days but then, you could wear the back of your closet old tshirt to work and nobody would object). I came back and when they asked me if I was ready to review it since I was back in the city, I readily agreed.
MINK is a pre-eminent laundry service that aims to remove all the hassle associated with finding someone take care of your (usually crazy expensive) clothes alongwith of course all the stains and grime. They're a startup by a few guys from IIT-B and they're just a few months old. They promise to provide personalised care to all your garments and honestly, are the easiest way to get everything perfectly laundered with just a quick call/a few clicks. I was offered to launder 3 garments so I decided to send my silk top that was ruined when I lent it to a friend and she partied a little to hard, my blazer that's been worn uncountable number of times and my extra precious woolen top that was a life-saver during winters.
So do they deliver?? Well, yes and no. Honestly, they weren't able to get the white silk top completely clean which was a shame. However, the stain I was most worried about is much lighter and here's hoping another couple of washes and it'll disappear. Having said that, they did a fabulous job with my blazer and wollen top which is still ultra soft and comfy so big points for that!
My verdict? If you want a premium laundry service without any hassle and excellent customer care (and of course don't mind paying the ultra high rates for it), choose MINK. Or if you're just like me and simply can't find the time to select a good laundry, I'd say give them a try. Not the cheapest but definitely the nicest experience I've had with a laundry till date!
