Serving the area for more than 35 years, Davig's Custom Cleaners has recently begun using eco-friendly solvents to freshen-up smelly blouses and clean dirt-speckled suits. Submit grubby clothing to the expertise of a Davig's dirt-busting engineer, who’ll happily remove spaghetti stains, coffee spots, or molten-lava marks. Through the use of non-hazardous DrySolv cleaning solution and tender hands, each item of clothing is ensured the utmost care. Stock your wardrobe with nicely pressed skirts ($3.50), stain-free shirts ($4.25), and corsage-less prom vests and jackets ($4). For clients with wardrobe issues beyond cleanliness, Davig's also performs a bevy of other garment-beautifying services, including cleaning draperies, area rugs, and other household items.
Stateline Family YMCA promotes youth and family health with community fitness and education programs, cardio and strength equipment, and a positive, encouraging atmosphere. Membership bequeaths a host of benefits, including access to both locations during their posted facility hours, as well as free use of drop-in childcare for toddlers who otherwise use resident weightlifters as human jungle gyms. Both the Beloit and Roscoe locations furnish an indoor running-and-walking track, cardio and strength-training rooms, and a gymnasium. In addition to a second gym, the Beloit YMCA encourages members to diversify their workout routines with three racquetball courts, a free-weight room, and a six-lane indoor pool certified to be free of sea monsters. Physique-sculptors can waltz free into any general adult land- or water-fitness classes, such as Cardio Kick or Aqua Zumba, and enjoy reduced entry fees into other specialty classes such as Yoga.
