As early as 1921, Horrigan Cleaners established a reputation for restoring sullied shirts and pantsuits to store-fresh conditions; nearly a century later, the skilled technicians continue to purge dirt and stains from delicate clothing. Garments of all shapes and sizes pose little challenge to the cleaning staff, who can also handle household textiles such as comforters, area rugs, and quilts made from tea cozies. The team traverses to homes to clean carpeting and upholstery and protects the environment as well as wardrobes with green and organic cleaning solutions.

Eco Bubbles Laundry operates under the philosophy that laundry day can and should be every day. Clients take charge of their own fresh-smelling destiny with both pickup and drop-off laundry service, as well as with self-serve machines. Staff attendants keep customers’ items separate during the washing and drying process, then fold all items into origami crane shapes before placing them neatly in a plastic bag. Customers waiting for machines can take advantage of a kid-friendly area, flat-screen TV, wireless Internet, and fully stocked vending machines. A full-time attendant is on hand to dispense premium detergents and softeners. Eco Bubbles Laundry also tackles larger linen items, such as comforters and mattress pads.
Frank and Jen Allen, along with their canine companion, Buddy, strive to provide a nurturing home away from home for pets while families are away at work or on vacation. Pups romp freely around a fenced outdoor yard with other fuzzy friends before heading indoors, where spotless accommodations inspire restful dreams of taking over the postal service. Petopia Doggie Day Care also provides expert grooming services, delivering dogs and cats back to owners with a pleasant new-car smell.
Founded by a childbirth educator recently profiled in Worcester Mag, Mothers & Company’s natural-parenting community center supports expectant and new moms with relaxing yoga classes while its store supplies them with organic and natural baby products. The store's collection of cloth diapers, baby carriers and slings, pumps, and other accessories facilitates a natural and organic transition into parenthood. The store’s homeopathic, all-natural Hyland's Calms Forté sleep aid soothes parental nerves with chamomile, slipping them into restful sleep filled with dreams about even more sleep ($7.50); a pair of absorbent, washable Bummis training pants stretches with Lycra to fit around little legs and bellies as they trot toilet-ward ($11).
The staff at Zoots Dry Cleaning extracts stains and stress by pairing eco-friendly dry-cleaning services with the convenience of extended evening and Sunday hours, 24-hour drop-off and pickup services (available at most locations), and an automated drive-thru system. Team members clean clothes, draperies, bedding, and rugs with a biodegradable solvent as opposed to harsh PERC chemicals, and some staff are trained to expertly excise stains from the delicate lace and beadwork of bridal-gown bodices. Most stores also have a tailor on location who is able to alter ensembles in a snap. Customers get e-mail notifications when orders are ready or they can download a smartphone app to keep a close eye on the status of their dirty laundry.
