Technicians clean, starch, and press clothing at six different locations, customizing services to suit special requests, and offer same-day turnaround for dry-cleaned items brought in before 9 a.m. Beyond offering basic cleaning of delicate clothing items, comforters, curtains, and leather, on-staff tailors can also perform basic alterations, taking in too-big suits or stretching leg warmers into sweaters for pet snakes.
The suds specialists at Bright Cleaners liberate garments from their layers of grime in a variety of laundry and dry-cleaning services. Starting with a careful examination of each textile, staffers treat dress shirts ($1.69), pants ($2.89), blazers ($3.99), and dresses ($12+) with a process that is tenacious enough to remove stains, but gentle enough to leave apparel mildly ticklish. Customers can also opt to have nuptial artifacts ushered safely into the future with wedding gown preservation services. In four to six weeks, dresses will be dry cleaned, hand-pressed, and folded into a container designed to maintain the gown's form. Acid-free tissue paper ensures no discoloration over time, and a sturdy outer casing protects delicate threads during transportation or use as the sail of a makeshift raft.
