Schaffhausen - dry cleaning and house cleaning recommendations

Hi,

I'm still on a quest to find a dry cleaner/laundry near Schaffhausen where it's not just as cost effective to buy new clothes instead of getting them dry cleaned. Ideally, just over the border to bring the price down. There is one in Busingen (DE) but they take only CHF and charge Swiss prices. Also a couple in Singen but that's a pain to get to, ideal would be Jestetten where I regularly visit the incomparable Edeka supermarket, but every lead does not work out. Any suggestions?

Plus anyone got a good regular home cleaner/cleaning service in Schaffhausen they can recommend? Older recommendations I've found also seem to be dead now.

Cheers!

Re: Schaffhausen - dry cleaning and house cleaning recommendations

Hi,

I agree, it's a problem. Before I always took my dry cleaning to any other country that I would go to just to avoid dealing with it here. Last week I finally found and tried one here; the Coop store (not the Manor one) with several floors has on the top floor. You could go there to get a price list.

As a try I did one pair of pants. They charged me 10.90 and they were done the day after. Unfortunately it's just expensive with dry cleaning in CH.... I'm scared about the time I need to do some suits..

By the way, they charge more than double for a shirt if it's a female shirt!! It doesn't matter that the shirt looks the same as a man's but smaller. One of the annoyances.....

I finally found the one in Jestetten - I've been given directions there several times but only this time saw it was down more of an alleyway than a street. It is on Bachstrasse off the main Schaffhauserstrasse But it seems the owner is on an extended holiday until November, but looking forwards to much reduced prices.

BTW there is another in Schaffhausen opposite the Kantonal Bank offices, but eye-wateringly expensive.

I have heard about the one next to the KantonalBank and try to avoid it at all cost...

Let me know if you were happy with the one in Jestetten when they come back from the holiday!

My last batch of a dozen or so items was 180 CHF from Busingen, which is only 'medium rip-off' I would say but still makes me resent it each time...
