Today’s idea is a clothing rental service that delivers clean, “like-new” clothes right to your door. Users could sign up for the service, browse through a large selection of clothing online, and add clothes to their queue. The clothes would be delivered within a few days, and when you are done wearing them, you would return it via a pre-paid envelope. Once the company receives the clothes, they would ship out the next clothes in your queue.
Why is this cool?
#1 – You would never have to do laundry again. Seriously…I freakin’ hate laundry. OK, you might have to do a little (underwear rental probably isn’t going to fly), but still, it would be much easier.
#2 – Clothes are a big investment, and after a few months they go out of style, they get worn out, you outgrow them, etc… Why spend all that money on something that you probably won’t be able to use (or don’t want to use) in such a short period of time?
#3 – It would be great for travelers or situations where you temporarily need a whole new wardrobe in a short period of time. This would be ideal for someone who just changed jobs, or for someone who travels for work (they could have their “rental” clothes shipped to their hotel, so they wouldn’t have to pack and carry a big suitcase).
#4 – OK, it’s not that cool – but come on, coming up with a viable startup idea each day is actually kind of hard, so you gotta cut me a little slack from time to time. 🙂
