A good friend of mine just sent me a surprising text.
I say “surprising,” because when I clicked the link, I learned her excitement was about dufl, which is a new service that will store a closet of your clothes for you, then pack up a selection of your choosing and send it to whatever destination you desire.
I have to say, I was mystified that my friend was interested. I’m not at all!
According to their website,
DUFL is a premium, luxury travel service- a personal valet that simplifies business travel by shipping, cleaning and storing your business attire.
DUFL stores your clothing in your personal DUFL closet, and allows you to virtually ‘pack’ by selecting your clothing items from within the app. Once you’ve scheduled your trip, you’ll travel – bag free, and your freshly cleaned and neatly packed clothing will meet you at your specified destination. When you’re ready to head home, schedule a pick up from the hotel and we’ll clean your clothes and have them waiting in your virtual closet, ready for your next trip!
Here’s a video, which didn’t change my mind at all.
First of all, I don’t have enough clothes for this: I can’t imagine just sending off a suitcase filled with clothes to be stored remotely, and then pay $10/month and $100/trip to get to wear them! Second, I definitely do not trust other people to wash my nice clothes (and yes – I admit that I am weird like that). Third…underwear. No thanks.
So, I have to ask, would you dufl? I’m so curious to know! Why or why not?
