Founded in 1857, Zengeler Cleaners thoroughly and carefully spruces up a wide variety of fabrics, garments, drapes, and more. Every woven wearable undergoes a 14-point inspection and receives free minor repairs. Degrime a favorite pair of slacks ($8.35) or slacks' favorite blouse ($7.55), or launder a two-piece suit ($16.70) in time to wear it to a black-tie dinner, a rival high school's prom, or a climactic showdown inside a volcano. Zengeler Cleaners' washing wizards shun PERC solvents, employing filtered, crystal-clear formulas to remove stains, spots, and miniature black holes.
Skokie Valley Laundry and Dry Cleaners breathes neat new life into grubby threads using eco-friendly methods. Changing solvents with each load to preserve efficacy, the outlet's skilled launderers can remove pesky mayo splotches from shirts ($2.20) or poorly executed ketchup self-portraits from bed sheets, tablecloths, and other flatwork ($16.75 for the first 5 pounds, $2.30/lb. thereafter). Skokie Valley's dry-cleaning service forgoes the widely used but potentially hazardous chemical perc, relying instead on safer and greener substances to waterlessly wash shirts ($7.95–$8.50), blazers ($7.95), full suits ($14.50), and more. With the cleaner's convenient pickup and delivery service, customers needn't be home for clothes to be picked up or dropped off.
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.
Spots and stains sail into the sunset at The Greener One-Price-Cleaner, a full-service and environmentally conscious haven for waterless washing. Plants breathe a collective sigh of contentment as professional cleaners make soiled vestments sparkle with organic solvents before storing them for pickup in biodegradable garment bags. For a set price of $1.99, pants and ties worn during pie-eating contests and too-powerful power lunches undergo a thorough cleaning and pressing, and shirts hung on the dry moving rack shiver with excitement knowing their last horrifying home bath need never be repeated, as each dry cleanse costs a friendly $0.99. Patrons already boasting meticulous torso tents can finally jump on beds with reckless abandon before sending complete sets of bed linens in for cleaning that leaves them feeling softer than a baby-powdered puppy. The Greener One-Price-Cleaner also freshens up precious leather and furs and preserves wedding dresses with an in-house service for future brides-to-be.
Customers can be reunited with their beloved garments the same day if they drop them off at Chicago's Discount Dry Cleaner or Kenny the Kleener in the morning on Monday–Saturday. The staff responsible for this quick turnaround has been at it since 1981, dry-cleaning delicate fabrics and laundering more resilient clothing such as knit shirts or hats that double as tea cozies. Besides cleaning clothes, they can alter garments to better fit customers' silhouettes and preserve wedding gowns.
