Bensinger's Fine Cleaners handles dry-cleaning emergencies with a wide range of services. The skilled staff of dirt exorcists unsoils, unsullies, and unblemishes items such as men’s shirts ($2.55) and pants ($6.20), women’s slacks and skirts ($6.20 each), blouses ($6.30), and chainmail pantaloons. Fragile silk, linen garments, comforters, bedspreads, tablecloths, and newspaper hats are handled with fragile silk gloves, and shirts are hand-finished and pressed instead of being recklessly tossed under passing steamrollers.
