LA Boxing’s fight-centric gyms ditch the polished look of wood-floored workout studios for gritty, competitive spaces filled with 150-pound punching bags and intense workouts. Like a baker molding gingerbread men, LA Boxing sculpts six-packs with boxing, kickboxing, and mixed-martial-arts classes. Although instructors and students agree that the gym’s atmosphere may enkindle intimidation in first-time attendees, most experience boosted self-confidence after conquering their first class. Private training sessions further stoke courage with workouts that leave patrons with the exhilaration of having survived 12 rounds in the ring or five minutes in a high-school lunchroom.
Sherrill’s Cleaners’ dedicated staff safeguards delicate garments with dry-cleaning services for items from pants, skirts, and blouses to sweaters, jackets, and wedding gowns, whisking away dirt, stains, and clingy poltergeists from difficult and finicky materials.
Midas Fabric & Blinds' large selection of fabrics supplies all manner of DIYers with the materials necessary for their projects. Designers of all skill levels can select from hundreds of fabrics, then reupholster a timeworn sofa or relative with a durable new covering or swathe drab living spaces in swanky animal-print tapestries. Custom window treatments ($129/valance) surround panes in style, and a made-to-order set of 48"x90" curtains ($309/pair)—including fabric, lining, fabrication, wood rods, and finials—furnishes hard-to-cover windows. During an in-home consultation ($50), one of the store's talented interior decorators makes expert recommendations as to which fabric patterns best complement furniture, architecture, and the ghost chandeliers of tenants past.
Pope's Cleaners emancipates duds from dirt and stains at each of its five Raleigh-area locations. Revive wrinkled men's pants with a laundry wash and fresh crease ($7.07) or enlist the cleaning connoisseurs to free dress shirts ($2.55) from lipsticked collars and blushing cuffs with a laundry cycle. The Pope's cleaners hand-press every garment, lavishing dry-cleaned skirts ($6.39), trousers ($6.39), and dresses ($12.74) with precise, individualized attention. Refresh fusty down comforters ($47.23) or console honeymoon-snubbed wedding dresses with a tender cleaning and preservation ($275). Dirty clothes that arrive by 9 a.m. are tidied and ready by 5 p.m. the same day and available for pickup at drive-through windows at all locations except the Pope’s on Medlin Drive.

Renaissance Carpet Cleaners’ deluxe treatment fusses over frowsy floors in two rooms (up to 200 square feet per room) and a hallway, using a Rotovac hot-water extraction to scrub out dust mites, pollen, and allergens hidden inside pest-ridden pile. After coddling carpets with disinfectants and brighteners, floor toupees will be deodorized, and then a pre-spot treatment can erase traces of red-wine-finger-painting spills or your pet squid's ink blots.
