Laundry In The Time Of COVID-19

Except for ironing and minor alterations, I won’t be taking on any private laundry jobs, due to the extra lengths now required, before May 18 (and that date is subject to change).

I’ll be taking on each job on a case by case basis and my service window will likely be extended from 2-days to 4-days.

I’ll be open for limited service starting on May 4. If you are interested in my limited available services, as listed above, please message or text me and we’ll try to get you squared away.

Be safe and stay healthy 🦋

COLORADO SPRINGS, April 12, 2020 — LAUNDRY AND OTHER MYSTERIES, a new podcast (https://anchor.fm/desiree-hickson), about laundry, laundry tips, and tricks and focuses on business owners and creators, social impact businesses, and how business owners and creators support their communities and is geared toward business and creative entrepreneurs of all ages.

The fourth full episode features Amy Cook Porter, Managing Editor of Terra Essentials, a business directory based in Colorado Springs and the host of Laundry and Other Mysteries, Desiree Hickson, also known as “The Laundry Diva” having a discussion of how new and seasoned entrepreneurs can reinvent their businesses despite “The Great Pause” that has come in light of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.

Desiree Hickson says, “My conversation with Amy was so informative and inspiring. We discussed how entrepreneurs will now have to re-establish trust with their customers and that means they will have to rethink their business and marketing plans, rewrite their mission statements, overcome their established branding and their businesses will have to be more flexible into the future as they navigate this new paradigm.”
