When deciding rates for a laundry service, it's a good idea to include additional expenses beyond basic laundry items. For instance, expenditures for gasoline, mileage and vehicle maintenance can be factored into the rate. Cleaning products, such as laundry detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, are priced between $0.9 and $0.11 per pound. Rates for specialty items like comforters, blankets, pillows, coats, mattress pads and rugs range from $10 to $29. Some laundry services charge up to $0.21 per pound for a super wash.
