Most people in Amsterdam don’t have a wasmachine, either because it won’t fit in the apartment, or it’s just not worth buying one. But somehow you still need to wash your clothes! For many expats (those of you living in the dark ages not part of a laundry club) , biking with a basket of laundry might be a bit too advanced, so we compiled a list of laundry and dry cleaning services throughout Amsterdam – hopefully in a neighborhood near you!
Rembrandt Stomerij has been steaming, pressing, and washing laundry for 25 years in Amstelveen. They specialize in delicates, even washing by hand when necessary. In addition to clothing, Rembrandt also accepts curtains, bed linens, table cloths, and carpets.

Try a Laundry Club
If none of these locations are near you, or if it’s just not convenient to take your laundry to a stomerij because you’re too busy, then consider joining the Miele Laundry Club! Miele will do all the work for you: pick up your laundry, wash it, iron it, fold it, hang it, and then deliver it 48 hours later. Never stress about laundry again!
