Fore more than 20 years, Green & White's garment cleansers have banished dirt, odors, and stains from clients' apparel and household items. Delivery trucks venture to homes to pick up clients' laundry bags, and then deposit the parcels at the 15,000-sq. ft. cleaning facility, where cleaners separate, tag, and cleanse each item. Refreshed items are then collected, and loaded onto another delivery truck to journey back to homes and into the hands of their owner. At a separate facility, customers can drop off and pick up their clothing, and watch as their two-piece suit leaves home for the first time.
