Kittens are known for their cleanliness despite their aversion to water, and the same is true for nice clothing. But unlike kittens, the staff members at Curley's Cleaners don't lick garments clean. They remove stains and wrinkles with speedy dry-cleaning services for dresses, suits, comforters, and sundry garments.
Staff members process thousands of items per day, meticulously preparing each suit, dress, or newspaper hat for next-day pickup. The economical venture even earned a visit from Scott Jones of Fox 59, who spoke with employees and several satisfied customers in a brief news clip.

After graduating from England's Southampton University, Jacqueline Bols began her culinary career in the French and Italian rivieras, serving her creations on private yachts in Cannes, Monaco, and Saint-Tropez. Later, she catered American events, earning the Charles Heidsieck Award for Culinary Excellence and serving her feasts to such famed diners as Oprah Winfrey, Sean Connery, Tommy Hilfiger, and Kevin Costner.
In 2001, Jacqueline opened Jacquie’s Café & Gourmet Catering, drawing on modern French cuisine and local and organic ingredients to craft in-house breakfasts and lunches as well as catered meals. In quarters ornamented with photographs and oil paintings, guests can dine on handcrafted yogurt parfaits, homemade soups, or smoked turkey, brie, and apple sandwiches. The catering arm of the outfit fashions hors d'oeuvres, à la carte items, and boxed lunches for private events, as well as corporate breakfast and lunch dishes, which distract employees from the daily grind of prank faxing competitor companies.
Under new ownership, the friendly clothing cleansers at Martinizing Dry Cleaning understand the importance of a crisp, well-laundered wardrobe as well a crisp, well-laundered planet. They’ve been freshening up clients' delicate fabrics with traditional and eco-friendly cleaning techniques and sanitizing stares since 1949. Martinizing Dry Cleaning does not use perchloroethylene or a variety of other, harmful chemicals. Their GreenEarth system, which is appropriate for all fabrics, leaves clothing with a lighter odor than traditional dry-cleaning methods. Along with treating garments, they also alter ill-fitting duds and repair wear and tear. Their expert techniques include the safe cleansing of valuable apparel, such as leather, suede, and wedding dresses, and they will pickup and drop-off duds at homes, offices, or backyard tree forts.
The sheer volume of garments that Widmer's Cleaners has dry-cleaned over the past 100 years is astronomical, but there are a few special items that will never be forgotten. Widmer's processed many vintage garments on display at the Smithsonian, such as Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders outfit, and the suit that Abraham Lincoln was wearing when he was assassinated. Today, the service menu has expanded—technicians will clean carpets, tile and grout, and upholstery, as well as perform a slew of other services. Widmer's is actively involved in the community, contributing to charities such as Goodwill and the American Red Cross.
