About Us

Wash Me Iron Me is a bespoke personal ironing service that was set up in Barkway in April 2003 by New Zealander Michelle Bonfield.

By a combination of determination, hard work, commitment to the highest levels of customer service, and constant innovation Wash Me Iron Me has grown year by year, moved into bigger premises and been nominated for numerous local business awards.

We cover the SG8 area - which basically means a 10 to 15 mile radius of the market town of Royston in Hertfordhire.

We specialise in ironing, laundry, and also offer a repair service for current customers and operate a standard 48 hour turnaround but can also offer a 12 hour turnaround if necessary (subject to availability and a short-notice surcharge).

Please have a look around our website, it explains how we operate and what you can expect from Wash me Iron me.

We found out about Wash Me Iron me through our local village shop and have used the service for over a year now. The reason I began using the service was that it had been very hard to find help of a good, reliable, and practical kind at a reasonable cost...being in the latter stages of my second pregnancy I had all but given up hope of finding a workable solution and lo !!! As if by magic we saw the advertisement and it has absolutely transformed my life!!! I use the service once a week for all our ironing and dry cleaning and it is a joy to have the same items returned pristine, ready for use, and delivered to our door !!

The business proprietor Michelle and her husband Robert are a delightful hard-working couple who it is fantastic to see are seeing major growth of the business thanks to their brilliant customer service and attention to detail... no missing button goes unnoticed and repairs appear done as if by fairies!!!

We have been delighted with their help and have recommended them to several people who have been equally happy.

Michelle has a down-to-earth approach and warm manner that endears her to all and this makes Michelle, Robert, and Wash Me Iron Me indispensable
Rebecca Fordham, Barley.

I have been using Wash Me Iron Me every 2 weeks for over two years now after their replying to an advertisement I placed in my local post office for help. Being full-time working professionals with 2 small children, Wash Me Iron Me has provided my husband and I with a vital ironing service, as not only do we hate ironing, but have a plethora of work shirts and blouses which we need to be ironed to a high standard. Wash Me Iron Me has consistently supplied a high quality, reliable, and friendly service which is very affordable and has never let us down. In times of urgency Michelle has turned our clothes around rapidly and on occasion has helped us out with some interesting repairs and washing requests. We thoroughly recommend Wash Me Iron Me's value for money services.
