Milt Chortkoff takes dry cleaning seriously. For more than seven decades, he's had his hand in dry-cleaning and laundry businesses in the area. The culmination of that experience is Milt and Edie's Drycleaners and Tailoring Center, which provides 24 hour service 7 days a week, 365 days a year, with 12 tailors on hand, as well as mobile tailoring to create a well-rounded cleaning service. Because they don't skimp on what they wash, from clothes and drapes to superhero capes, and they even do shoe repair, the washhouse's services hit every aspect of the home. Clients can chow down on complimentary popcorn and refreshments while they wait. Milt & Edie's lives by a 10-point policy, which involves replacing missing buttons and sewing seams. Going one step further, the cleaner offers free pickup and delivery within five miles.
Flair Cleaners expunges grime and beautifies wardrobes with a full array of textile-coddling services. The shop’s eco-sensitive dry cleaning safely freshens pants ($6.25 and up), skirts (from $6.25), suits (from $14.15), and cherished childhood Scarface snuggle blankets, leaving fabric friends sparkling and unharmed. Wedding dresses receive tender care at the hands of Flair Cleaners’ cloth cognoscenti, and an acid-free storage box ensures each gown's continued pristine condition. Skilled tailors stand at the ready to perform alterations and repairs. Flair Cleaners, with more than 50 years in business, further adheres to its green philosophy by offering recycling programs for customers’ hangers and plastic garment bags. Customers can opt to escort garments home inside the recyclable, washable Better Bag ($6 for one, $10 for two), ensuring protection from rain, asteroids, and roving mannequins on the hunt for new threads.
The professional dry cleaning experts at Rainbow Cleaners employ earth-friendly technology to uproot stains and odors from each article of clothing that comes through the door, revealing the clean, bright garment underneath. Clients have the option of same-day service should pajamas bear the aftermath of somnambulatory finger painting, and can even have pieces restored that have been damaged by fire, mold, or water. The team’s skills don’t end at the closet, however, as household linens such as comforters, duvet covers, and blankets also enjoy a vigorous deterging. An expert tailor remains on-hand six days out of the week to handle minor and major repairs alike, from button stitching to full suit alterations.
“Dry-clean only.” These words on a garment tag can make people pretty nervous, resulting in hundreds of neglected sweaters, slacks, and dresses. Around the Block Cleaners confronts this issue head-on by offering free after-hours pickup and delivery for its dry-cleaning, alteration, and laundry services. Without the hassle of working around narrow business hours, customers can also drop their garments off themselves, which is an ideal solution for people whose commutes take them by the family-owned shop or who have a debilitating fear of deliverymen.
