A new mobile shower van will take to Melbourne's streets to help the homeless population.

Orange Sky, a free laundry and shower service, will launch in the city on Friday.

Founders Nic Marchesi and Lucas Patchett, who were named 2016 Young Australians of the Year, have partnered with The Shine On foundation to deliver the initiative.

"People doing it tough in Melbourne can now shower for free but more importantly have an opportunity to spend time with our volunteers and have a conversation," Mr Marchesi said.
