Over the past few years, a number of on-demand laundry services have sprouted up. Another such new service Edaixi (“E-washing”) has attracted investment from Tencent.

Unlike many laundry startups such as 24tidy, Ganxike (“dry cleaner”), Xiyigj (“laundry’s helper”), Ayibang (“maid’s help”), WeWash to name a few, Edaixi was born out of Rong Chain Laundry, a time-honored laundry brand founded in 1990. Rong Chain’s established offline laundry chain and its 4 million users definitely give Edaixi the upper hand in the O2O laundry competition.

Users need simply dump clothes into the laundry bag provided by Edaixi, select pickup time and pay on Edaixi’s WeChat-based app, sit back and wait for clean clothes to be delivered at door in the next 72 hours. Edaixi charges 99 yuan per laundry bag instead of the conventional way of charging by piece. Aside from clothes, Edaixi also provides on-demand cleaning for air conditioners, furniture covers, leather goods and shoes.
