Cosmobutler makes the internet personal

We support the local economy by working with the best local shops and providers. Our customers get their errands done by placing an order through the Cosmobutler app. At the example of a laundry order, Cosmobutler picks up your clothes during a 2-hour time window of your choice and delivers them to our local laundry partner. Our partner carefully counts and processes all items according to the textile care symbol and packages your clean clothes in one of our re-usable garment covers. Before returning your fresh clothes during your 2-hour delivery window you receive an itemized invoice by e-mail and your account is automatically charged. Your Cosmobutler will then be back at your door to deliver your clothes with a friendly smile.

How your personal Cosmobutler Service works:

To get your flat cleaned, you conveniently select the start date and your recurring cleaning day and time. Cosmobutler will then organize the cleaning at your address with one of our vetted home cleaning partners, taking care of any personal preferences such as cleaning the inside of the fridge, or cleaning the inside of your stove.

To get your clothes cleaned, Cosmobutler picks up your garments at the address of your choice, during a convenient 2-hour window you have selected previously, and brings them to one of our vetted local dry cleaning partners. The dry cleaner will carefully count and sort all items, clean them according to the textile care symbol and pack them in one of our re-usable and 100% recyclable garment bags. Before the delivery you will get an e-mail with an itemized invoice of the submitted items. You may conveniently provide your credit card and the overall amount will be charged automatically, or you can pay the Cosmobutler at the door. Your friendly Cosmobutler will then return your clothes back to the address of your choice during your preferred 2-hour delivery time window.
