How much do you pay for your ironing to be done?

I'm going back to work soon after DS2 and have decided to get someone to do my ironing as I don't really see there are enough hours in the week to do everything!

I am trying to gauge what is the going rate for ironing services (including collection and drop off).

We live in Bedfordshire

Cheers

was paying 17pounds for 35 items and no limit on what they were so would save up and send all shirts and sheets.

But quality of ironing was dire. most things looked barely ironed at all. I ended up doing half of it again so have sacked whole idea and have a cleaner for 3 hours at #9 per hour and do my own ironing in front of the telly at night!

£8 an hour and she's quick. Whole week's worth of washing, including bedding, was £16 last week.

my cleaner does it. We pay £24 for 3 hours and get a fully clean house and about 10-15 items ironed for that.

75p per shirt. Done in the launderette over the road so collection/drop off no problem.

Used to get it done somewhere even cheaper but then we had a few stains so stopped using them.

We live just outside London.

I opened this thread thinking I was getting really good value for money, but am clearly not shock

We're in Warwickshire and its about 90p an item at the dry cleaners. And the cleaner is shock £10 per hour.

When I was having my ironing done weekly, it was £7 an hour. My friend's Nan did it and she was the absolute business.

My cleaner does it.

She spends approx an hour ironing and does all our week's clothes. Although not sure how many items, there is loads!

I pay her £9/hour.

I think an ironing service would be much more expensive than that.

Didn't realise it varies so much! I used to have a cleaner (who I was gonna have back when I go back to work) but she won't do it.

Might be time to find a new cleaner...that seems to be the cheapest route.

Thanks all

I pay 50p an item, a bit more for shirts and sheets.

I pay about £10 for a big bag full, I tend to take DH's uniform, shirts and the bedding.

I use a local launderette, which is cheaper, I drop off and pick up which suits me.

SW London here, and my cleaner does the ironing. Pay her £8 an hour.
