T&T are recommending these dry cleaning and clothes washing services; but we have to be honest, if we have something really specialist to dry clean, we might not send the item here. The service providers mentioned below are all good for your standard clothing and fabrics. We have also included a couple of launderette services in case you don’t have a washing machine yet or it is on strike!
Washapp is an app where they will collect your clothes and deliver either in 24 hours or 3 days- great in an emergency, for washing, ironing and dry cleaning. Presently, Washapp serves most of Colombo but its range is expanding.
2. Hilton Colombo
2 Sir Chittampalam A. Gardiner, Mawatha, 02 | 0112 492 492
The Hilton Colombo’s launderette is very reliable, particularly for your expensive clothes. Also, they’re at the Hilton which makes a laundry trip an excuse to go hang out somewhere nice and have a drink.
3. Creases N’ Pleats (Cinnamon Lakeside)
117 Sir Chittampalam A Gardiner Mawatha, Colombo 02 | 0112 491 000
Housed at the Cinnamon Lakeside, Creases N’ Pleats, again is very reliable for your laundry and dry-cleaning needs. They’ve also got a branch at Crescat Boulevard in Colpetty, where you can drop off and collect your things from when done.
126 Philip Gunawardena Mawatha (Reid Avenue), Colombo 04 |Opening Hours Monday- Saturday 7am – 8pm, closed on a Poya and Sundays| 0117 774 400
Not affiliated to any hotels, Laundromat is Colombo’s biggest professional chain of launderettes. They’ve got a couple of branches around (their main one is listed above). They’re clean and reliable. They tend to write on your labels though so watch out for that.
