DUFL: app allows travelers to clean and ship clothes to destination

If you travel a lot and don't like to worry about packing your luggage or doing laundry, there's now an app for that.

It's called "DUFL" and it's a valley based company that packs and ships your suitcase for you.

Traveling just got a little bit easier with DUFL.

CEO Bill Rinehart thought of the idea while he was back and forth on business trips.

"Coming back from London on Friday and needing to be in New York by Monday, I thought there has to be a better way than me going home and spending all weekend doing a lot of the same laundry, carrying the same bag, back to New York," said Bill Rinehart.

To start you sign up for the service using your smart phone and wait for your first suitcase to arrive.

"As soon as you do that, we will send it to you and you fill it up with the clothes that you wear," said Rinehart.

Then you send it back and it's off to get dry cleaned.

"We inventory them so we know what brands, what size, etc. that you have, we send them off to the cleaners, as you can see a bunch of cleaning just came back," he said.

"When the clothes are dry cleaned, they are dropped off, folded, photographed, and then put back in the closet and here on the app... you got your virtual closet there in our facility, and you can say I want that shirt, that shirt, those jeans, those socks, those shoes, and I want them in New York next Thursday," said Rinehart.

And wherever you are off to the company will make sure your bag meets you there.

"It's as simple as going on the app and picking out the clothes that you want, and where you want them, and what day," he said.

All the clothes are folded and wrapped, so when you open up your suitcase it looks just like a little gift.

The service costs $10.00 a month, and then $100.00 for each time you travel.

You are allowed as many suitcases as you want, each suitcase costs $100 to dry-clean, pack, and ship.
