Our ethical approach
“Make Mom Proud” has always been a guiding principle at Rinse. To that end, our Valets are W-2 employees of Rinse.
Unlike independent contractors, Valets receive benefits such as paid sick time, paid rest breaks, mileage reimbursement, workers’ compensation insurance, and employer-paid tax benefits.
Empowering local businesses
We take pride in partnering with the best local cleaners and providing them with tools and training to help them grow their business and deliver a consistent, high-quality cleaning experience with every order.
Industry leaders in sustainability
Why we started Rinse
Our co-founder and COO, James, grew up in dry cleaning. He helped his parents’ in their dry cleaning storefront in South San Francisco and developed an obsession for cleaning quality and a deep appreciation for how hard local cleaners work to serve their customers.
In 2013, Rinse was founded to provide a world-class, stress-free laundry and dry cleaning experience for customers, while also empowering and growing top-flight local cleaners.
We are building the first national brand in clothing care so that you can spend more time doing the things you love while still taking care of such an important chore.
