💸 Get your washing machine to work for you
This company will pay you up to $300 a week (plus tips) to wash clothes
GM. This is Work "After" Work, the business newsletter that’s like the bacon in a BLT; without us, there’s no sandwich.
It’s Friday, let’s boogie:
🧼 Making money with your washing machine
😂 Meme of the Day
GET YOUR TIDE PODS READY
Okay, if you're like me, you hate doing laundry. And folding - don't even get me started.
But, if I was getting paid for it... well it might just become a little bit more enjoyable.
And that's what I'm going to teach you how to do today. Making money that is, this isn't going to be a laundry tutorial because frankly, I would need one too.
The service that pays you to wash is called Hampr. And get this…
Hampr was founded by someone whose passion is doing laundry. Call her the Tide-in-Chief!
How much will I earn as a washr?
70% of what Hampr charges ($10-$15 per load) is yours to keep - plus 100% of all tips.
So, at 2-3 loads every day after work, you’re looking at anything between $250-$300 every week.
What do you have to do?
Pick up the laundry, wash it, fold it, then deliver it back. A pretty simple side hustle!
SO HERE'S HOW TO BE A WASHR ON HAMPR
1. Create a Hampr Washr account
To become a washr, go here. Or download the "Washr by Hampr" app.
You'll first fill out the usual info - home address, name, email, phone number, and device type.
Then you'll be asked to fill out another form with details about your washer and dryer, such as make, model, and year of manufacture. *it should be at least 4.2 cubic feet or else you'll have to do multiple washes for one load*
You also must meet these requirements to be a washr:
18 years of age
Pass a background check
Have a valid U.S. driver’s license and auto insurance
Have access to a reliable vehicle
Have a washing machine (can be shared) that’s at least 4.2 cubic feet
Buy Dropps - the Hampr approved detergent (Washrs get a 20% discount)
2. Account set up
This is the part where you add your bank information so you can get paid for your services.
Speaking of services, be sure to personalize yours by uploading a clear photo of yourself and putting some decent effort into your bio. Anything to make you more personable and trustworthy.
You will also need to set your radius so the app knows how far you want to go to pick up laundry.
And, remember to turn on notifications for “Available Orders” so you never miss out on a gig.
3. Wash, earn, repeat
You'll be notified when there's available orders within your radius, which you can then claim by double tapping the “CLAIM” button on the app.
Whip over there, pick up the laundry during the specified window, do it some justice, and then drop it off in the same window the following day leaving your customers like:
You always return the clothes within the same window, so if you claim an order during the evening window (5pm to 7pm), you’ll need to drop it off between 5pm and 7pm the following day.
Pro tip: Scale this side hustle if a laundromat near you has washing machines that are 4.2 cubic feet or larger. Use those and do multiple loads at one time to maximize profits. Not to mention, you won’t put the wear and tear on your own washer.
BENEFITS OF HAMPR
Hampr’s competitors, the likes of Push Laundry and Rinse, pay per pound. Hampr’s per-load approach makes more sense
Laundry like sofa covers, shoes, rugs, curtains, comforters, and costumes are prohibited
Even better, you won't deal with bed bugs or lice, grease, muddy clothes, or excessive pet hair because hamprs must pre-treat their laundry and remove any existing stains before putting it in the hampr bag
You don't need to sort any of the laundry - simply take it out of the hampr bag and throw it in your washing machine
MEME OF THE DAY
The British version of the Dollar Store being called “Pound Town” is among the funniest unintentional corporate comedy ever.
