Perhaps the most grueling chore in New York City is laundry. If you don't have it in your building, it's 10 blocks away—if it is in your building, the dryers are located in the deepest, darkest basement and are almost always out of order. WashClub is great, because they come to your house, grab your soiled shirts and pants, and deliver them back folded for free within 24-48 hours of pick up.
This sounds ridiculous to the people not living here, we know, but trust us, this is a God-send. (Price: $1.15 per pound for wash and fold laundry.)
