Mrs Dawson of Woodthorpe in Nottingham knows that "many a marriage may have foundered over the folding of a man's shirt". To avoid this pitfall she uses the 'quick, efficient laundry' of Daybrook. And, right on cue, one of the firm's smart blue vans arrives to whisk away her sheets and Mr Dawson's trousers for their spruce up. So it's true, a laundry really can bring marital harmony!
