Overwhelmed with everyday household laundry?

Try us.

Hi, we're Family Laundry, the wash & fold service for households. We come to you.
Same-day service is standard. Hand us your everyday dirty laundry in the morning and we'll return it to you fresh and folded that same evening. No  harsh chemicals or fragrances involved. Just radiantly clean and neatly folded laundry - the way it should be.
We proudly do all the washing and folding in our own facilities in Oakland using natural and perfume-free detergents.
Available in: Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley, Alameda, Piedmont (7 days a week). San Leandro, Hayward, Castro Valley (Wednesdays and Fridays service only)
*Same day service: Laundry picked up by 10 am will be returned to you by 10 pm on at no extra charge. Laundry picked up between 6-10 pm will be returned the next day between 6 and 10 pm.

Our Family Laundry adventure began in early 2018, the day we closed on our first laundromat in Fruitvale. Our backgrounds in education and tech didn't make us commercial laundry experts from the get-go but we got our hands dirty and learned very quickly.


We run Family Laundry the way we think all companies should be run: with an eye to engaging with the communities we operate in, and to reducing our impact on the environment.

We're at the very beginning of our journey, and we thank you for joining us.
