Before dry cleaning, clothing was washed by dressing up a phalanx of backyard laundry scarecrows just before thunderstorms. Today's Groupon lets you do away with sopping straw men and clean your clothes the new-fashioned way—with science: for $9, you get $20 worth of drop-off and pickup services from Palomar Cleaners, in Carlsbad, or Town Center Cleaners, in Encinitas.
Backed by decades of squeaky-clean tradition, both locations boast services for a range of fabrics and garments. Drop off a shirt ($1.95+), a slick pair of pants ($4.95+), a manly matching tie ($3.95+), or a womanly dress aching for a breezy spin on the dry-cleaning carousel ($9.95+).

Prices listed are for basic garments; additional charges may apply.
