If I could give Reward Laundry six stars or more, I absolutely would. They dry cleaned 2 wedding gowns for me. Both times, every single stain was completely removed, including fake tan, mud and alcohol. The tailoring on my dresses was immaculate after the cleaning and Reward Laundry even removed dirt from one of my wedding dresses which the previous dry cleaner had told me was impossible to remove. Price-wise, Reward Laundry are super competitive, especially when you factor in the collection and return of your items for home. The delivery is organised very quickly once you get in touch. They’re also very organised, sending photos of the dress before and after the cleaning as a record, along with any areas of damage. Highly, highly recommend this firm for your wedding gowns. A consistently fabulous job.

This place is really good. I was so scared to clean my wedding dress cause it is handmade just for me, and I checked a lot of places before but almost every place has bad reviews. I’m quite happy, I found Reward Laundry! Dry cleaning was not expensive and quite fast (6 days). Stong recommend!

My beautifully beaded dress with a 2-meter train was well-loved and needed some dry-cleaning, and Reward Laundry cleaned this dress in a speedy, effective, and yet professional manner! Pick-up, cleaning, and drop-off was all done over exactly 7 days, and they turned my dusty old-looking dress into a brand new dress. They first made sure to review the dress to check for damages, and then asked if I wanted repair before getting my approval to go ahead with dry-cleaning. When it came back, it was hung on a sturdy wooden hanger and kept neatly in a simple, clear plastic packaging that is sufficient for keeping dust out.

I am very pleased with their service and will recommend them to people!
