Masbagti is an on-de­mand laun­dry app. Broth­ers Athbi Alenzi and Nouri Alenezi founded Masbagti af­ter mov­ing to Kuwait from the UK and strug­gling with late pick-ups and vague pric­ing when deal­ing with lo­cal laun­dry shops. Masbagti con­nects laun­dry shops to cus­tomers, of­fer­ing fast and trans­par­ent laun­dry ser­vices.

Through the app, users can search for nearby laun­dry ser­vices, re­quest service from one of the 22 listed laun­dry shops in Kuwait, and select a pickup time and day and check­out. Pay­ment is ei­ther via Knet upon check­out, or cash on de­liv­ery. The av­er­age time for de­liv­ery is 24 hours, but Masbagti also of­fers fast service as quick as 4 hours. Cus­tomers then can track their laun­dry un­til de­liv­ery. For each trans­ac­tion, Masbagti takes a service charge.

Masbagti pitched at Arab­net Kuwait 2016 in the Startup Demo com­pe­ti­tion, as well as Nu8.1 Pitch­ing Edi­tion or­ga­nized by Nuwait. Masbagti faces com­peti­ton from Uae-based Wash­men, Get­laun­dry and Wash­plus, and com­petes by of­fer­ing dis­counts and ben­e­fits to its cus­tomers.
