For more than 30 years, dedicated staffers at All Seasons Cleaners' four locations have cleansed garments with green processes such as wet cleaning, which yields a 100% biodegradable discharge. At this Certified Environmental Dry Cleaner, the diligent workers ready threads for same-day store pickup, or retrieve clothes from homes with their twice-weekly deliveries.

The cleaning extends to laundry services, washing towels, clothes, and household fabrics such as quilts and drapery with environmentally friendly detergents. At the Crystal store's laundromat, washers and dryers handle up to 60 and 80 pounds respectively, and a soap machine doles out soap, bleach, dryer sheets, and rubber duckies to calm down nervous pants. The cleaning pros also tend to specialty items such as costumes, leathers, and wedding gowns, keeping delicate garments safe with hand-cleaning, hand-pressing, and acid-free products.

Ivy Cleaners keeps clothing clean and crisp with wet and dry cleaning services. The professionals analyze each garment prior to their wet cleaning treatments, determining each fabric’s composition and the degree of anger it bears for the loom it came from, in order to customize an appropriate water temperature, blend of detergents and conditioners, and agitation setting. Alongside traditional dry cleaning, the staff also handles leather, suede, wedding dresses, and bedding, and it offers pickup and delivery services so that pants don’t need to learn how to walk themselves home.

Though many students come to Mathnasium having fallen behind their classmates, a mathematically advanced child sparked the learning program’s creation. As founder Larry Martinek’s young son, Nic, developed an appetite for higher-level math concepts, Larry found himself developing an entirely new teaching language to explain them in an age-appropriate way. The kind of instincts he sought to build up couldn’t be nurtured by drills and rote memorization. Instead, they required a deeper understanding of the principles at the root of mathematical operations, delivered in a way that grade-school kids could apply throughout their academic careers.

In just a decade’s time, Larry and his team have established Mathnasium centers in most U.S. states and more than a dozen in other countries. At each, highly trained tutors develop custom learning plans for students in grades K–12 based on The Mathnasium Method. The system combines an education strategy of conceptual, tactile, and visual techniques with a curriculum structure that ensures kids can count, think proportionally, and tell the difference between a multiplication sign and a plus sign by scent alone. Tutors allow some time each session to help students with the concepts in their math homework, and the centers regularly check report cards and standardized tests as further measures of progress.

Most inflatable stand-up paddleboards are 4 inches thick, but Metro Lakes Marina and Rentals’ stand-up paddleboards measure a military-grade 6 inches thick, riding ride high in the water and never sagging in the middle. The team’s eye for details like this extends to their watercrafts, too. Their jet skis, for example, are all 2013 models from Yamaha and Sea Doo, and cushioned pontoons ferry you and up to 11 friends or mannequins posed as friends across Lake Minnetonka. To ensure safe navigation of the waters, pontoon drivers receive operating instructions and a map of the lake before shoving off.

Anglers can also hunt fish species from large-mouth bass to muskies aboard the company’s fishing boats. Fishermen and women shouldn’t get too attached to their hauls; however, because Metro Lakes Marina and Rentals adheres to catch-and-release practices.

Though VHS tapes may be of sentimental value, their usefulness is fading in the modern world. National Video Transfer’s employees ensure the memories stored within VHS and all forms of outdated or rare media devices remain intact and compatible with current technology. They can transfer and update the content of any kind of video—from VHS to Betamax—and relocate it to DVD without losing quality or the only known recording of dad dancing. The media specialists can even transfer film using the trusted Elmo TRV, transfer audiocassette tunes onto CDs, or simply duplicate existing CD and DVD content.
