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+).
For more than 100 years, United Parcel Service's recognizable brown trucks have been showing up on doorsteps in a timely fashion. Founded in 1907 as a messenger company, UPS has grown into a multibillion-dollar corporation by enabling commerce to travel the globe. Now the world's largest package-delivery company and a recognized name in specialized transportation and logistics services, UPS's legions manage the flow of goods, funds, and grandmas' cookies in more than 200 countries.
The UPS Store's obliging staff and reputation for reliable package conveyance attracts all types of packers, shippers, and printers. Packers regularly stop in for masking-tape rolls and other do-it-yourself supplies. Alternatively, senders can enlist the skillful packing of the store's staffers, who will deftly seal boxes and cushion contents with bubble wrap or styrofoam peanut-butter sandwiches. In addition to packaging services and supplies, UPS Stores proffer printing services for large-quantity flyer makers and mailbox rentals for lazy messenger pigeons. Each independently owned location abides by the company's rigorous cargo standards and solemn Pack & Ship Promise.
Who knows what kids need? Just ask a mom. Club 4 Kids is fully staffed by mothers. Back in 1992, Patty Stouffer couldn't find a reliable place to drop her kids off for a few hours, so she decided to create one. Today, parents drop their brood off at one of two locations. Here, kids get their hands covered in paint at the art center, exercise imaginations playing dress-up, and practice containing their road rage while driving play cars. Even older kids occupy themselves, by playing video or board games in the on-site clubhouse. Every two hours, the group breaks for a meal or snack, so kids are well-fed by the time their parents come to pick them up.

The staff at Reveal Zerona Laser Body Slimming harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During sessions, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistlines, backs, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time. The staff suggests that patients can boost results with healthful eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.
