    Default Ironing & Mending Question

    Hopefully someone here has some experience to hand down to me!!

    Recently a friend of mine asked me to do some mending, laundry &

    ironing for a friend of hers. She asked what I charge. I don't have a

    clue!!

    Does anyone have a guideline as to what or how to charge? By the

    piece, by the load, seams or zippers....HELP!



    Thanx in advance!

    Kathy, In my area, hemming a pair of pants goes for $7, if they have cuffs or lining $9 and to hem a moderately full skirt is also $9 HTH Lisa G. in GA

    call around to places of business in your town to find out what they charge

    and go from there. you want to be fair but not overcharge (like a lot of

    businesses do) or undercharge (you need to be paid what you're worth).

    Charge by the item.

    When I was doing this in the late 1990's, I charged by the piece, either with the ironing or the mending.

    It really depends on what the item is. I would charge more for the bigger items, men's shirt I usually charged between $1.25 to $1.50. Also if they want a lot of starch, charge extra.

    I had one lady that wanted everything really stiffly starched, even cordery, so I would hang the clothes outside, spray them wet with the starch and let them dry and then when ironing, spray again. Some items I would spray a couple of times.
    As for the mending, again charge by the piece and what is needed to be repaired. I would put patches on men's jeans and charge $5 for that. Replacing zippers can be tricky as you will need to do a lot of ripping.

    Good luck.
