Even as it celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2014, the family-owned Colton's Cleaners still trades on the customer service and eager-to-please attitude that it did when it was just an upstart. Across that span of time, the cleaners have handled sartorial staining issues in every era, from wine stains on war-rationed nylons to ketchup stains on Zubaz pants. Their services also extend to tailoring and alterations, and customers who join the company's route service enjoy free pick up and delivery of clothing items, each labelled in a clothing bag with the name and special instructions.
Village Laundromat delivers fresh-folded laundry seven days per week within a 25-mile radius of Newark. Schedule a pick-up over the phone or send soiled socks up your flagpole and Village Laundromat liaisons will whisk away washables. Blouses, bed sheets, and breeches are given a sudsy bath, complete with fabric softener and bleach if necessary. Each article is then folded neatly and delivered to your doorstep faster than the speed at which electricity flows through copper wiring. Businesses in need of unsullied uniforms and spotless tablecloths can also put this Groupon to good use.
Suits, wedding dresses, and household items are all given a second chance at Dobson Mills Valet Dry Cleaners. The dedicated team of cleaners helps to extend the life of everyday wardrobe items such as shirts and pants along with high-maintenance fabrics such as leather, fur, and designer life jackets. The dry cleaners can also take in stained garments and return them looking crisp and clean. Tailoring services take ill-fitting clothing and widen or alter them to fit beautifully, and the tailors can also fit customers for suits, hem pants and skirts, and patch up holes or fibers thinned out by muscular shoulders or knees that have been playing tag with doctors' reflex hammers.
Since 2005, TCS Organic Dry Cleaners has armed itself with a 100% biodegradable, nontoxic solvent in its ongoing quest to dry-clean clothes without leaving so much as a smudge on the environment. Their services produce such sweet-smelling results that patrons might start charging friends to smell their fresh-as-a-daisy suits or eat off their clean-as-a-whistle leather jackets. The outfit’s scouring skills even extend to home items such as comforters, rugs, and draperies, as well as alteration and repair projects performed with an industrial machine that can reproduce a garment’s original appearance.
