Minimum Order Size
Minimum order amount for Wash & Fold laundry service is $25 (applicable to Pay per Use customers only) and for Dry Cleaning service is $30. However if your minimum order value for Wash & Fold service of $25 is met, you may include your Dry Cleaning order in which case the minimum order value of $30 for Dry Cleaning does not apply. Washbistro does not combine your order with any other customer and therefore processes each order separately and charges accordingly. If minimum price level is not reached, Washbistro will apply a charge for the minimum order amount.
Lost or Damaged Items
Washbistro exercises the utmost care in cleaning and processing garments entrusted to us and uses processes, which in our opinion are best suited to the nature and conditions of each individual garment. Nevertheless, we cannot assume responsibility for inherent weaknesses or defects in materials which may result in tears or development of small holes in fabric that are not readily apparent prior to processing. We cannot guarantee against color loss, color bleeding, and shrinkage; or against damage to weak and tender fabrics; or against damage to ancillary items such as belts, buttons, beads, ties or zipper pulls. Washbistro’s liability with respect to any damaged items shall not exceed 10% of the retail value of the garment regardless of brand/condition and only upon presentation of the purchase receipt.
Any damaged items must be reported and returned to Washbistro for inspection within 48 hours of pick up or delivery of the item(s). Any lost items must be reported within 48 hours of pick up or delivery of the item(s). Washbistro makes reasonable effort to track every item that we process and will review all lost items claims on a case-by-case basis. For any items that are determined to be lost by Washbistro, customers will be reimbursed in accordance with the International Fabricare Fair Claims Guide and shall not exceed 10% of the retail value of the garment regardless of brand/condition and only upon presentation of the purchase receipt, or a collective sum of a maximum of $500. Washbistro assumes no responsibility for item(s) left with Washbistro over 30 days and you are authorizing Washbistro to donate them to a local registered charity without liability.
Washbistro is not responsible for loose items such as jewelry, watches, cash, detachable buttons, cuff-links, belts, brooches, strings, laces, hoods or loose items on or in garments.
