EWING, N.J., Nov. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On average, college students spend 64 hours a year doing laundry – time that could be better spent studying or enjoying all that campus life has to offer. Recognizing the opportunity for a more convenient, high-quality laundry solution ARM & HAMMER™ and OxiClean™ laundry brands of Church & Dwight Co., Inc. have teamed up with The Laundry Chute, an innovative 24/7 collegiate peer-to-peer laundry ecosystem. The Laundry Chute, powered by ARM & HAMMER™ and OxiClean™, provides a cutting-edge full-service laundry solution to on-campus as well as off-campus students, that lightens the load for both college students and their parents.
Using The Laundry Chute Arm & HammerTM mobile app, students can drop off their laundry bags at on-campus proprietary smart lockers which are accessible 24/7. Then a student processor will launder and fold the items using the on-campus laundry facility in as little as 4-8 hours. ARM & HAMMERTM and OxiCleanTM detergent plus stain remover and color boost paks work to ensure a powerful clean that students can rely on, without any of the wait for a dryer to become available and with assurance their clothes are neatly folded right out of the dryer cycle. Parents can also have peace of mind knowing that their children will always have fresh and clean clothes and linens, and fewer piles of laundry to do every time they come home.
"Through our collaboration with The Laundry Chute, we're excited to offer today's time-crunched, tech-savvy students a 24/7, on-demand laundry service powered by ARM & HAMMER™ and OxiClean™," said Tammy Talerico, Director of Licensing at Church & Dwight Co., Inc.
