Layne's Careful Cleaners treat soiled duds with dry cleaning that respects fine attire's many sensitivities. Customers can freshen up blouses and shirts after interdepartmental mud-wresting matches at work ($5.44+), or prep sweaters for another long summer in the attic ($5.91+). Ketchup splatters and spilled water disappear from pants ($5.80+) and two-piece fatigues ($12+) after a stain-annihilating therapy session with Layne's blemish-ridding experts, who'll also cleanse labcoats to undo the messy effects of hours of toiling with a children's chemistry set without reading the instructions ($9.90+). Layne's Careful Cleaners' blotch-eroding prowess extends to erasing smoke and fire damage for birthday suits that have ventured too close to the birthday cake. Same-day service is available if articles are dropped off by 8 a.m. (Monday–Friday).
Before Glyndon Cleaners and Lord Baltimore Cleaners merged in 2005 to create the no-suds-needed superpower known as Glyndon Lord Baltimore Cleaners, both family-owned companies had been servicing the Baltimore metro area since the 1920s. Now doubled in size, strength, and genetic diversity, the joint company proudly provides skilled service to more than 4,000 customers. For convenient pick-up and delivery dry cleaning, call to schedule your service and then leave your spoken-for sullies in a weather-safe place (preferably at the front door or in the cellar during tornadoes). Pick-ups generally happen twice a week, and you don't need to be present when the truck stops by. For special cleaning instructions, simply leave a detailed note in the bag.
The staff at Star Brite Dry Cleaners restores sullied wardrobes to wearable condition with dry cleaning, wet cleaning, and tailoring services. Although they specialize in couture clothing, they treat all garments with the same care they show Prada dresses, Burberry suits, and the Monopoly man's top hat collection. They can even repair garments damaged by fire, water, or mold. Besides dry cleaning, they also use gentle and eco-friendly wet cleaning methods to cleanse delicate fabrics such as silk, wool, suede, and leather.
More than 85 years of gazing into wrinkled and stained threads hasn't disheartened the employees at National Cleaners & Yorgey's Fine Cleaning. They snap to attention with every delivery of soiled attire, ready to assess each garment’s fabric type and instructions for proper care. After dry cleaning or wet cleaning shirts, trousers, and jackets, the professionals replace shirt buttons free of charge. They offer same-day turnaround at no extra charge, as well as a 24-hour drop-off service that allows nighttime paratroopers to deposit their sullied parachutes upon landing.
National Cleaners & Yorgey's Fine Cleaning keeps Mother Earth's ozone fresh with recycled hangers that minimize carbon footprint. The business also gives back to the community by supporting initiatives such as Process Pink’s fight against breast cancer.
With winter on the way, it's time to pull your heavier fabrics out of storage to air out the trapped sweat from last winter and the must of dead attic bears. Instead of dousing your wool suit in perfume, Febreeze, or deer scent, send it to the cleaners for the fresh scent and superior fit of a newly dry-cleaned suit. With today's Groupon, $25 gets you $50 worth of dry cleaning from Hourglass Dry Cleaning. If you're skeptical, consider the testimony of a man of science, John Hopkins University’s own Professor Philip Warsaw:
Crest Cleaners uses its exclusive CleanCare System to unsoil shirts and slacks while leaving the environment virtually unblemished. By using only biodegradable and organic cleaning agents, Crest Cleaners avoids the carcinogenic dangers of traditional tetrachloroethylene-based agents that lie in wait to sabotage suit jackets and the bodies that fill them. Enjoy eco-friendly edulcorating, with most cleaning—including pants and sports coats—running at $7.25 per item. Laundered shirts run $2.40 a piece and get to keep a souvenir hanger from their ride on the motorized clothes carousel. Dresses run around $14.50 each. For nocturnalites who do their errands in the still of the night—when the sun isn’t listening in on conversations—Crest Cleaners offers 24-hour drop off, and busy bees can take advantage of the cleaner's same-day policy, as items dropped off by 11 a.m. are ready for pick-up by 5 p.m. Get garments ready for demolition derbies and anti-costume Halloween parties with the spiffying-up services of Crest Cleaners.
