Miss Jenny's Dry Cleaning carts disheveled duds from doorstep to store and back again, returning crisp clothes that have been brightened by a human touch. The garment chauffeur swings by most of the 33 service areas on a regular, two-day-per-week schedule, picking up dingy shirts or cardboard suits in personalized bags issued to each household. Service days vary by area, but orders are consistently returned gleaming and fresh on the next regularly scheduled service day. Caretakers follow up each cleansing with a thorough inspection, carefully purging rogue stains, repairing small problems such as worn or broken buttons, polishing rusty chainmail, and hand finishing most items.
To remember her son’s childhood, Soraya Cartwright stockpiled pictures, video clips, and mementos. Irked that many types of videotape only have a 15-year lifespan; she looked for a way to safeguard her memories for generations, and as a result founded her own digitizing business, Life’s Sweet. Today, she and her technicians convert videotape and film formats to archival quality DVDs; they can also store audio footage on CDs, rather than player pianos. In addition, they scan pictures to save them in digital format, compile them into photo books, or showcase them on custom greeting cards.
