Locally owned for almost 90 years, Art Cleaners uses eco-friendly methods to press and launder shirts, pants, dresses, bedding, drapes, rugs, and more. The shop's GreenEarth Cleaning System gently de-dirts even the most delicate fabrics with liquid silicone—a natural, odorless by-product of sand that keeps finery looking new longer than most conventional cleaning methods, such as pickling dresses in brine. With the help of Art Cleaners' services, Oxford shirts can retain crisp collars (starting at $2.60 per shirt) and seasonal pieces like Santa suits and Santa astronaut suits can ditch the mothball fetor for $9 to $10 a piece. If you're far too busy to either drop off or put on clothes, Art Cleaners can arrange for free pick-up and delivery.
The garment-care specialists at this three-cleaner outfit adhere to the GreenEarth Cleaning system, which entails using a nontoxic, pure-silicon solution that is free of petrochemicals and aims to not pollute the air, water, or soil. Since the solution is chemically inert, it’s gentle on even the most delicate of pieces, such as sweaters knit from cashmere or socks woven from ostrich hair. Beyond completing dry-cleaning jobs in as quickly as two days, crews perform alterations, preserve wedding gowns, and clean and condition leather or suede. They also repair shoes, handbags, and luggage and can arrange pickup and delivery for clients in the metro area.
The scrub-a-dubbers at Paradise Cleaners gently whip besmirched threads into states of squeaky cleanness with the help of high-quality equipment and products. Fabric-fetchers first retrieve garments from domicile doorsteps, then whisk them away to Paradise’s central plant where purified solvents and delicate soaps destroy dirt, odor, and evidence that you ate the last pudding cup. Each piece of laundry is treated like a beloved family member and receives special attention, including hand-finishing services. Slip into a pair of recently bathed pants ($8.85+), or slap on a pristine shirt ($8.05+) to prepare for a video-chat date with the inventor of HD video-chatting. Paradise Cleaners also helps suits sparkle ($16.50+), dresses shed their spots ($14.90+), and comforters return to their beds sans sheep dander ($40+).
Nu-Way and Foothills Cleaners treat soiled closet denizens to a hearty buffet of eco-friendly dry-cleaning, laundry, and alteration services. Experienced garment groomers banish stains from dry-cleaned shirts ($7.29 each) and laundered shirts ($2.99 each), blazers ($7.99 each), dresses ($14.59 each), and slacks ($7.29 each) with EcoSolv, a nontoxic, biodegradable cleaning solution that rehabilitates habiliments without harming fabrics, leaving behind odors, or resorting to name-calling. The cleaners can also make wardrobe alterations or launder bedspreads ($31.99 for queen size) and comforters ($39.99 for queen size). Friendly staff members faithfully record customers‘ starch preferences to ensure custom crispness and always handle clothing with tenderness and care, often courting bashful blouses by winning them stuffed animals at the state fair.
