Fabricspa turns 8!

Fabricspa turns 8 this year. Here’s a look back at how far we’ve come. Back in 2008, just before we launched our laundry and dry cleaning operations, we toured the world and took a look at how the world does laundry. From United States to Europe to fully automated facilities in Japan, we learnt lessons from them all. the idea was simple how do we provide the best in class laundry service in India. Our leadership team came back brimming with confidence after their tour and setup the 50,000 sq.ft. plant in Bengaluru, Karnataka incorporating all their learning in this fantastic plant. In an event that can be only described as first of its kind, we invited all the major manufacturers to this world class facility to showcase our large scale laundry operations in India. Our concept was unique then and is unique today. However, we didn’t stop there.

Our facility in Bengaluru was equipped with state of the art water conservation systems which helps us recycle over 50% of the water we consume in our processes. Add to that a top notch rainwater harvesting system and you’ve got a plant that is way ahead of its time, especially when it comes to laundry. With the current water crisis in and around areas near Bengaluru, it can be said that our company is among the few that are at the forefront of saving our city from water woes. Needless to say that this would not have been possible without the support of our 4 lac strong customer base, who with us, share the same affinity to the cities in which we live/operate in. We doubt any laundry or dry cleaning service in India can make a claim like that!

Long Live Wool!

Long Live Wool!

There’s an old adage that warns ‘don’t let them pull the wool over your eyes’, meaning beware, do not be easily fooled. Ironically, we say the same about caring for wool.

Originating from animal fur – usually sheep – wool is a natural and very delicate fabric. Maintaining wool in such a way that you prolong its life means meticulous care all through. Those who appreciate this aspect go a long way in keeping their woollens in top condition – carting sweaters around to dry cleaners, spending unimaginable amounts of money and what does all this lead to anyway? When you bring the item back from the cleaners, it carries with it hundreds of known and unknown chemicals that you want to avoid in the first place!

Luxury Made Easy: Caring for Linen

Luxury Made Easy: Caring for Linen

Whether you’re cool and casual in a summer dress or have had your bedroom draped in intricately patterned sheets – linen is light-hearted luxury at its best.

Sure, linen is high maintenance, and certainly doesn’t enjoy the same convenience as cotton or denim. While everything you know tells you that it’s a fabric that’s difficult to deal with, we make it worth the effort with these simple care tips that offer the protection it deserves.

No Guess Work: follow the specific washing and drying instructions on the clothing tag to a tee. If you’ve got an affinity for organisation, you could also create a file in which you record these specific instructions (before throwing away the tags) so they come in handy at just the right moment.

Caring for Performance Wear

Caring for Performance Wear

Have you been working your ‘workout look’? If you’re a fitness freak who likes to dress comfortable, then the good news is athleisure is here to stay!

There hasn’t been a better time for keeping it casual. While you invest more money in work out attire, remember that it is just as important to invest your energy in caring for the clothes. Performance fabrics, as they are known, no matter what type – sweat wicking, compression, antimicrobial or ultraviolet protection (UPF) – are all high maintenance.

The life of your active-wear is entirely dependent on your treatment of it, hence they need to be cared for properly.

Handle with Care: Maintaining Baby Clothes

Handle with Care: Maintaining Baby Clothes

From the second they are born to every other moment after that, humans care for their young like no other. In this modern day and age of chemical-everything, that intensive parental care comes with a hundred thousand times more responsibility than it did before.

Baby skin is sensitive and prone to all sorts of infections and allergies. Of course, there’s that eternally common nappy rash that happens to everyone but is – in truth – so easy to avoid. As the name already establishes, the culprit of that rash is the nappy. It isn’t the actual fabric of the nappy itself that causes it, but probably excessive detergent or improper disinfection.

Convenience without Compromise

Convenience without Compromise

We live in modern times, that means convenience is king and we expect nothing short of royal treatment. Life is customised for your comfort, information and entertainment available at the touch of a button, no limits on how far you can travel, even cooking and food has been simplified beyond what we once knew them to be!

It seems like a good deal, so why complain?

When you’re outsourcing every single task to an external entity, you inevitably compromise your control over what goes into it or how it gets done. For example, when you buy a burger at a fast food joint, can you know for sure the source of the ingredients or quality of oil used?

When you speak of life in a broad sense, it is the little moments that have made their mark.. right?

Laundry Like You Love It!

Laundry Like You Love It!

Life is one great balancing act. Between long, seemingly never-ending work hours and ever decreasing ‘quality time’ spent with the family – your time is a precious resource. Quite simply, it’s impossible to do it all on your own and the first tasks to be outsourced are the everyday chores – cooking, cleaning, washing.. the list is just endless!

Most often, we have are left with little choice but to go with the time tested ‘trial and error’ method in choosing the service providers we patronize. So, when it comes to patronizing a laundry service, it’s good to have a basic criterion of expectations to evaluate the whether your laundry service works for you.
