Just came across a link to this website and couldn't resist looking https://www.uniformtaxrebate.co.uk/
can you really claim money back for cleaning your work clothes?

yeah been posted before.
oh, never thought to search here, found the post, thanks
yes you can-if your work insists you wear certain clothes/uniform you are entitled to this. Nurses/asda/tesco workers for example.
The way this is usually defined is if the clothing has a logo on it which means you generally wouldn't wear out of work. If for example your uniform was a plain White shirt you would struggle to claim back
welcome to 2 years ago, yeah its real
You need to keep all receipts to support any claim that you make.

You can also claim back taxable element of Professional Body fees (see HMRC for list of acceptable organisations), also for items such as shoe polish & laces if your job requires you to wear smart shoes. The list is endless - you just have to be able to prove that there was a necessary expense incurred for you to carry out your job.

(Mind you, the tax refund on a pair of laces is not much!)

Yes it's real. I found this out last year and wrote to the very kind tax man with all the details of current and previous employers etc using the standard letter, and got no reply. Then this tax year, along with the nationwide ****-up, there it is, the £60 rebate thingy. Be aware it's not £60 for laundering your clothes, it's an increase in your tax free allowance of £60.
