11 M’sian Startups For People Who Hate Laundry But Love Clean Clothes


Laundry is one of the most annoying daily tasks we have to do as adults, so the idea of simplifying that task is a tried and true startup idea that has seen many versions over the years.

And because it is such an annoying task that should be simple, we thought of doing an update of a previous article, and list out all of the laundry startups in Malaysia, and what each of them does to help simplify this chore—usually for a price, of course.

We’re not including laundromats on this list (for the sake of brevity). Instead, we’re looking for solutions where you aren’t tied to opening hours, or even those that allow you to enjoy their services without having to leave the house.

Laundry Lockers

Perhaps one of the most interesting features to have come from the rise of startups, laundry lockers allow Malaysians to drop their dirty clothes into a locker, and come back to freshly laundered clothes.

eziPOD‘s laundry dropoff and pickup app utilises QR codes and an e-wallet on its platform. Its patented technology powered by Box24. The app will notify users once their laundry is ready to collect, though it will usually take approximately 2 days for laundry to be done.

The lockers are currently available in 16 locations, including malls, condominiums, and offices. Areas they service include Cyberjaya, Cheras, Puchong and mostly Kuala Lumpur.

The lockers are fully automatic, and the team barcodes and photographs each item to reduce instances of washing mixups.

Dobybox promises fresh laundry to Malaysians within 48 hours, after users lock it with any 4-digit code of their choice. Services start at RM6.00 per kilogram for normal washes.

The idea is to put up Dobybox lockers across buildings or residential apartments which, they think, would help increase the value to the tenants there, while also opening up opportunities for Dobybox to build a set of regular customers.

Now available in apartment buildings and condos across

For now, service areas include Cyberjaya and KL.

Mama Jo

To compete with the growing rise of coin-based laundromats, Mama Jo came up with the Ebox concept which took 1 year to perfect. Besides just clothes, carpets and drapery, Mama Jo also offers cleaning for handbags and leather as well.

Mama Jo also utilises a 4-digit code during input of laundry, and doesn’t require an app. Instead, the laundromat will communicate with you via SMS or email, including payment details.

Service Area: The Zest Point Puchong, First Subang Mall & Tropicana City Mall

Laundry Pickup

Pressto has been established in Spain since 1994, and has since come to Malaysia to offer deliveries since 2006. It uses ecologically freindly equipment imported from Europe.

Mr. White

This pickup service has a strong sense of convenience and hopes to stand apart by creating an app that will help with the whole process. It promises to get laundry delivered to your doorstep within 48 hours, using eco-friendly detergents and processes during the wash itself.

The app also allows you to schedule when you’d want your laundry to be delivered.

In fact, the app allows you to determine the type of detergent you want to use, or just decide whether on the heaviness of the detergent, and whether it’s scented.

The app is available on Google Play here.
