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.

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.
