For nearly two decades, the family behind The Washouse has tended to the clothes and linens of SMU students and the Dallas community. Cleaners cater to the needs to clients with hand washing for delicates, pretreatment for spots and stains, detergents free of dyes and perfumes that can irritate sensitive skin, and air-drying on request. Speedy dry cleaning rounds out the roster of services.
At GreenClean DryCleaner, the staff cares as much for the environment as they do their customer’s clothes. They use an odor-free, 100% biodegradable solvent that’s safe for people and pets. It’s also safe on all fabrics and colors, whether applied to pants and dresses or drapes and bedspreads. Plastics and hangers also get recycled, and their dry-cleaning machines use a non-water cooler system to reduce water usage. In addition to dry cleaning, they offer laundry services and alterations.
