We are very proud to be partnered for the 2018/19 with one of the most exciting new start-ups to emerge in Oxford in recent years - OxWash.

OxWash is a laundry service designed for the modern era - make your order through your mobile phone and have your laundry picked up and returned to you sparkling clean. At the heart of the OxWash ethos is a commitment to reducing the environmental footprint of the laundry process. Consequently the entire business is run off the back of bicycles which transport the loads from washer to doorstep. Equally the detergents used are all designed to have minimal impact on the environment, meaning that all in all using OxWash is not only an opportunity to save yourself some time but also contribute towards building a more sustainable future.
