Why Your Laundry Might Be Delayed

Ubud, like many parts of Bali, has a rich cultural tapestry filled with local ceremonies and festivals. These events can sometimes disrupt normal business hours, including laundry services. Ceremonies such as Galungan, Kuningan, and Nyepi are significant in Balinese culture and can result in businesses closing or operating with reduced hours. It’s always a good idea to check the local calendar or ask the shop directly if any upcoming events might affect your laundry schedule.

If you’re looking for an urgent wash I would suggest going to a self-service laundry shop (the first tree I listed).

When to Use Laundry Services

  • During the Rainy Season: Bali’s rainy season typically runs from November to March. During this time, humidity is high, and drying clothes can be challenging. Utilizing laundry services ensures your clothes are properly cleaned and dried, preventing any musty smells. I would highly recommend taking your clothes to the laundry store at this time of the year, otherwise, your clothes can take over a week to get dry and they would smell awful!
  • During the Dry Season: From April to October, Bali experiences its dry season. While you can wash your clothes and dry them outside, using a laundry service can save you time and effort, allowing you to enjoy your holiday more fully. I would suggest this travel soup if you are opting for washing your clothes by yourself.

What About Hotel Laundry Services?

While convenient, hotel laundry services in Ubud are generally more expensive compared to local laundry shops. Hotels often charge per item, with prices ranging from IDR 10,000 to IDR 30,000 for smaller items like t-shirts and underwear, and up to IDR 50,000 or more for larger items like dresses or trousers. This can add up quickly, making local laundry shops a more cost-effective option. It’s also a nice way to interact with locals! If you are busy, ask the laundry shop to arrange a delivery for you, so you can receive everything in the comfort of your accommodation.

Conclusion

One last tip before heading to the laundry shop – make sure you bring some change. If you end up opting for a small local laundry shop leave them your bag and ask to return your clothes in that bag. This is because otherwise, they would give you a single-use plastic bag, which is something you want to avoid. If you use fabric period pads, they can wash them for you. Just make sure you pre-wash them lightly by your accommodation. If you want to know more about responsible tourism in Bali, check out this blog post.
