Founded by brothers Atillio and Aldo Carbone, EZ-Way Cleaners has been taking care of customers and winning awards for more than 60 years. Like volunteer bounty hunters, technicians offer free pick-up and delivery on all items, gently laundering heavy winter coats and silken summer dresses with equal care. After double-checking each garment's cleaning instructions, the staff presses shirts into crisp shape, and uses specialized products and techniques to treat delicate leather, suede, tablecloths, or carpet. Customers are encouraged to bring back their wire hangers both to help protect the environment as well as feed the pet trash compactor kept out back.
A Sanitone-certified dry cleaning service, John Anton's Cleaners carefully cleanses each soiled garment with environmentally friendly chemicals while distilling and recycling its dry-cleaning fluid on location. Whether faced with a rumpled blouse, a wine-stained tie, or a pair of khakis that got sneezed on by an elephant, these adroit cleaners tackle each challenge with vigor and return your finery spotless and pressed. John Anton's also reshevels disheveled formal wear: both gowns ($25.35) and two-piece tuxes ($16.25) emerge free of such common stains as blood, blood, and so much blood, and the gowns are all hand-finished. Services for leather and suede jackets start at $50. John Anton's also picks up and delivers laundry to your home or office for free, even if you're not around. See a full list of pricing here.
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.

Kate also volunteered her services at a charity event raising funds and awareness for multiple sclerosis.
