Since 1921, Art Cleaners' meticulous wardrobe washers have been giving stains and blemishes the boot with a full roster of dry-cleaning, laundry, and alterations services. Today, they harness the cleansing power of the GreenEarth cleaning system, which eschews harmful petroleum-based solvents in favor of liquid silicone derived from pure, natural sand. This eco-friendly solution thoroughly but gently expunges stains and grime from all types of clothing and furniture fabric before dissolving back into its natural states—water, carbon dioxide, and sand. Like a skunk that's studied Emily Post's Etiquette, it leaves behind no odor. The staff at Art Cleaners also picks up and delivers clients' laundry for free within Boulder County.
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 over 30 years, 3 Day Blinds' technicians have sift through samples and unreel measuring tapes during in-home consultations, custom-fitting abodes with blinds, shutters, and shades. They handcraft and cut treatments such as faux wood blinds, vertical blinds, and flexcell honeycomb blinds that reduce light and are energy efficient. As they tailor-make each order, the staffers dress windows of all shapes and sizes, from an arch above a doorway to a misshapen wormhole in the attic. All of 3 Day Blinds’ products come with a limited lifetime warranty. After clients have made a selection, the team shows up just two days later to install the new window dressings or let customers do it themselves.
At Therapeutic Hands Massage and Bodywork, licensed massage therapist Summer Mahana views the body as a single, unified entity. This perspective defines her approach to massages: for her, if one part hurts, it all hurts. That’s why she incorporates strokes from nine types of massages and applies them across the entire body. This approach promotes the deeper mind-body connections sought in Eastern techniques while observing Western medicine’s emphasis on blood circulation and wearing a cowboy hat during massages.
