A bit about Total Laundry


We are now in our 10th year! Providing the best laundry service in Chichester since 2009.

We started because the owner, Sarah Lancaster ran a holiday letting company and needed a reliable laundry, so we really do know how important bed linen is to your business!

Don’t let the washing pile grow, let us take care of it.

Here at Total laundry, we offer all of our clients the personal, flexible and reliable laundry service they require, to help them get on with running their businesses and homes.

We follow your laundry needs and by offering our no-nonsense, no-contract service, it means you only have to use us as you need us.

We have invested in the latest commercial machines and operate a computerised detergent system, which combined with our experienced and trained team, ensures a perfect result on time, every time.

We ‘Dry Clean’ too.  Using the Eco friendly Wet Care system, incidentally we are one of the first laundries in the area to do so. This method is solvent free and leaves your garments fresh, clean and feeling amazing.

We are members of the major industry trade bodies and as such, keep up with the latest laundry techniques and innovations - we may be a small company but we think and act big.

So, from your family laundry or a suit you need cleaning, to the regular laundering of your holiday let, B&B or restaurant’s linen - we can help - Total Laundry really is total laundry!


We are passionate about laundry and take our responsibilities very seriously.  We are proud to be members of the following professional bodies.

The Important Stuff (Part of our Terms & Conditions) - please read!


  • Separate light colours from dark – Loads are charged for separately when washed separately.
  • Let us know of any strong colour items which may run. 
  • It is your responsibility to only bring in items that can be washed, tumbled dried and ironed.  If in doubt please ask.
  • Please ensure all your pockets are empty.
  • Keep separate any delicate garments that require any special handling, such as woollens, silk etc as we can clean them using our wet care technique.
  • Please undo shirt buttons.
  • We simply cannot check each item for stains before laundering - keep stained items separate and let us know on drop off or pop a note in your bag, so we can treat them* Most general stains will come out in the wash. However, it has to be acknowledged that some stains such as old blood and grease are difficult to remove without damaging the item. If we cannot remove your stain we put a sticker on it to bring it to your attention. *there may be an extra charge for intensive stain treatment.
  • Don't pack wet items with dry as it can make your items go mouldy
  • Shake tablecloths to remove any party debris.
  • If required, we can supply you with an itemised laundry pad.  However, we always count your items after processing and only send back what you send in.  The laundry count is final.
  • Items not collected within 6 weeks of completion will be either destroyed or sent to a Charity Shop.
  • Check your order is complete BEFORE leaving the shop.  We offer no liability for any missing items once you leave - 48 hours for bed linen & towels, so do check and unpack your linens as soon as you get home.This does not affect your statutory rights. 


Bed linen, towels and tablecloths are laundered at 60 degrees with a commercial detergent. We then iron your items using a commercial roller iron which gives your linens a lovely finish. However, buttons on duvet covers can become brittle over time and may break in the iron or polyurethane poppers can melt. We have no control over this as each button or popper is different. We take no responsibility for damage to any fform of fasteners, regardless of age. 


Collection & Delivery

To book a collection, please give the laundry a call on 01243 756182

Delivery customers are invoiced once the month has 'closed' and payment is due on receipt. You can pay via BACs, Cheque or Card over the phone.

We will come to collect every week – if you do not require a collection or you wish to change it, you must tell the laundry with at least 24 hour notice.

If we are unable to collect/deliver you will be charged a ‘failed delivery’ charge of £5.

Please put a list of items you are sending in for cleaning in your bag.  In the unlikely  event of a discrepancy, the laundry count is final. 


We aim to collect/deliver around the same time each week.  However, this may not always be possible, due to but not limited to, traffic, Goodwood events, weather and fluctuations in delivery schedules etc.  We will get to you on the scheduled day.


Every effort will be made to look after your items and to offer you the best possible service.  However, any laundering/drying & ironing and 'dry cleaning/Wet Care' is done entirely at your own risk. Things can shrink, fade or degrade during the washing/cleaning process.  Stains or marks that have previously been hidden can re-appear. we have no way of knowing this until it has been cleaned.  Quite often the incorrect care label or no care label has been applied by the manufacturer.

We use the Wet Care method of cleaning your specialist garments.  Google it and read all about it.   It's quite the best way to clean your suits, wedding dresses etc.Wet Cleaning and is considered by the garment industry to be one of the best ways to clean items.  You will notice that most care labels still state Dry Clean Only.  Wet Care is perfectly suitable for Dry Clean Only and more and more care labels now have the wet cleaning symbol. 

We always take every professional care.  Our liability is limited to twice the cleaning cost, only if it has been proved that we have been negligent, once items have been examined by a professional,  independent 3rd party as per the code set by the Guild of Cleaners & Launderers/TSA.
