New UK start-up, VClean, is betting on city dwellers’ busy lifestyle for the success of its dry cleaning on-the-go concept. The company is installing laundry vending machines, called VDrop, at different convenient spots that fit into every day life schedules, like parking lots and subway stations. After depositing laundry, for £2.50 a shirt and £3 for any other standard item, costumers can pick up their items, 24 hours later.

The Verge reports that VClean has already started trialling its concept with 200 VDrop machines it different London underground stations. Registration is required prior to using the service, and the clothes are dropped off using a user QR code. The laundry service uses eco-friendly soaps, without the potentially harmful chemicals traditionally used in dry cleaning.
