Must-try services for Dubai mums

Unlimited laundry and on-the-go tailoring to make family errands a breeze

Bumps and Babies

We’re always thankful for all the services in Dubai that make it easier for us to manage our daily errands and hectic lifestyles.

Tackling one chore that tops the “most-hated” list, laundry and dry-cleaning services, Washmen now has a Wash Everything option, where you can fill a bag with anything that needs washing and have it done for just Dhs49.

So you stuff the sweaty gym clothes, impossible-to-fold shirts and delicate undergarments into the big laundry bag, schedule pick-up within a 30 to 90 minute time slot on the free app, and get it all back within a couple of days.

Finding the right tailor also seems to be quite the task in Dubai, but now, we finally have our very first tailor truck – and we’re sure it’ll be a hit with the gents.

Custom-made suit couturier The Custom Shop New York has launched an on-the-go tailoring service.

It looks like a traditional tailor shop, but has 3D body scan technology, along with high-end suit/shirt fabrics and accessories for the perfect fit.

After you get the measurements and materials sorted, all you need to do is visit the store for your first fitting, then collect the suit from the store or truck of your choice.

The Truck will soon be touring popular events and community centres across Dubai, too. That’s one more truck on Dubai roads…
Washmen: Dhs49 per Wash Everything bag. Available daily 9am-11.30pm. (04 558 8191); to find out the Tailor Truck’s current location or to book an appointment, visit
