Green dry cleaning is preferable to red dry cleaning, which mostly involves bathing garments in ketchup to achieve one consistent, delicious stain. Opt for the unpolluted option with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of green dry-cleaning services at Press On Cleaners (formerly known as Snow White Cleaners) on Cary Avenue in San Mateo.
Formerly known as Snow White Cleaners, Press On was the first green-business-certified dry cleaner in San Mateo County, offering a plethora of environmentally safe services for eco-conscious wardrobes. Although spraying articles with aerosol cans of sulfur dioxide and setting them on fire may sound like a simple method, it leaves behind an enormous carbon footprint. Drop off begrimed blouses ($4.95+) or slovenly shirts ($1.95+) for a quick and odor-free fabric freshening using 100% biodegradable, nontoxic detergents. Professionals and businessman impersonators can drop off their two-piece suits for a sprucing ($13.95+) and pick them up later in the afternoon with Press On's convenient same-day service (if clothing is dropped off before 10 a.m., Monday–Friday).
Yelpers give Press on Cleaners (formerly Snow White Cleaners) an average of five stars:
