We recently rounded up a list of essential services still operating in Metro Manila malls while the enhanced community quarantine is in place. This includes groceries, banks, pharmacies, and food establishments that offer takeout and delivery. Another concern many of you might still have (especially those living in apartments and condominiums) is where to do your laundry. Below, we list down some laundromats around Metro Manila still operating during the quarantine.
Here's where you can avail of laundry services in Metro Manila during the enhanced community quarantine:
Lavada PH has several branches around the Metro but for now, only their stores in Katipunan and Taft remain open. You can drop by from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. They note that "our crew will maintain safety precautions and we ask for your full cooperation to prevent the spread of the virus."

The Lavendry Lounge
The Lavendry Lounge normally operates 24/7, but while the quarantine is in place, they will be closed from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. in compliance with the implemented curfew hours. They currently only accept drop-off, full-service laundry (meaning no self-service). They note as well that they "are conducting periodic sanitation activities throughout the day" and "practicing self-hygiene and self-disinfection."
The Lavendry Lounge is at 486 Arayat Street, Barangay Malamig, Mandaluyong City.
LaundryMan Express in Muntinlupa City continues to operate, but with rules for social distancing like requiring customers to wear masks. Only one customer is allowed inside the store at any given time while proceeding customers are requested to line up outside while waiting. Take note that folding of clothes and waiting inside the store is prohibited.

CityCycle encourages customers to only avail of drop-off or service options to prevent people from crowding inside the store. Self-service is still available, but they request for customers to disinfect and wear a mask before entering the premises. They posted the announcement on their Cubao branch's Facebook page, and the post was shared by their branches in Parañaque, Pasay, Mandaluyong, Kapitolyo, Katipunan, and Manila City.

LabaTronic in Parañaque will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and they encourage customers to practice social distancing.
