The technicians at Natural Cleaners revivify garments while respecting the earth's delicate ecosystem, eschewing traditional petroleum-based solvents for GreenEarth, a nontoxic formula made of silicone derived naturally from sand. Five Milwaukee-area storefronts bustle free from fumes and pollutants as suits, dresses, and coats shake off dirt during dry or professional-grade wet cleanings. Wedding-dress cleaning and preservation primes gowns for years of heirloom storage or Miss Havisham costume contests, and an in-house seamstress alters hemlines and cuffs to create dashing silhouettes. Household textiles also kowtow to Natural Cleaners' expertise as draperies, bedspreads, and feather pillows return home spic and span.
Klinke Cleaners’ dependable service and lasting commitment to the trade hasn’t gone unnoticed. In the last 30 years, they have won a gold medal in Madison Magazine’s Best of Madison category 29 times. However, before founders Maurice and Trudy Klinke had ever conceived of opening a cleaners, they were the proud owners of Klinke Hatchery, which raised more than 125,000 baby chicks a week. Perhaps the smell given off by thousands of chickens inspired them to seek a less malodorous occupation, because in 1958, they opened the first location of Klinke Cleaners.
In its early days, Klinke Cleaners used Econ-O-Crest dry-cleaning machines—early forerunners of modern dry-cleaning machines—but as the business grew, so did its thirst for new technologies. Soon, the company was installing new equipment nearly as quickly as it could be created, including shirt-finishing stands, drapery-pleating machines, and pants leggers, used to set precise creases in slacks. In 2000, the Klinke family began to consider expansion beyond Madison, leading to a rapid period of growth that culminated in 21 locations across southern Wisconsin and one experimental site at the bottom of Lake Michigan. Its EarthSmart Systems dry-cleaning process uses solvents and machines that are less damaging to the environment, as well as reusable garment bags and hangars to help decrease landfill waste. Most locations also offer a speedy turnaround with drive-thru windows and same-day pickup.
The Laundry Shop simplifies the apparel-cleansing process with 32 washers and 28 dryers capable of holding 60 and 80 pounds, respectively, and drop-off cleaning for everything from clothing to bedding. In an air-conditioned facility with pristine floors, mint-green countertops, and a flat-screen TV, experts scour sullied garments with a variety of thread-pampering services, such as dry cleaning, leather cleaning, and alterations. While little ones play with toys in the children's area, adults dominate a large table layered with books and free WiFi with caffeinated beverages in-hand supplied by nearby vending machines.
In addition to using traditional dry-cleaning methods, Lake City Cleaners’ laundering outlets set themselves apart with environmentally friendly technology installed at each of their four Chicagoland locations in Lake Forest, Highland Park, Evanston, and Chicago. Lake City Cleaners offers three levels of cleaning: Classic Care for everyday clothing, Fleur de Lis Care for fine items that require hand finishing, as well as Monarch Care, which uses the carbon dioxide-based Solvair system with a biodegradable cleaning solution. Pickup and delivery services are available throughout the North Shore, Gold Coast, Magnificent Mile, and much of the northern suburbs, and the cleaners’ GPS-tracking verifies the time and location of order of pickup and drop-off.

Happy Maids' housecleaners pride themselves on always arriving promptly, armed with all the products needed to do their job and vans stocked with rows of brand-name cleaners and industrial-powered vacuums. The professionally trained and fully insured crews have cleansed businesses and houses throughout Chicago's northern suburbs for the past 27 years. During that time, the company adopted the use of eco-friendly products and practices to help both their clients and the environment. Maids wield vacuums with HEPA filters to keep particles from polluting airspace, and utilize Murphy's Oil Soap instead of vinegar on hardwood floors to preserve their finish and save condiments for the traditional postcleaning fish and chips. Happy Maids also ensures consistency by sending the same team of maids to clean the same locations week after week.
