VIP Cleaners restores threads with water-free solutions in the comfort of a small, independent shop. Pants, ties, comforters, and other everyday threads find themselves rejuvenated and ready to strut the closet red carpet, while the laundering of shirts leaves sleeves crisp and ready to embrace waiting arms. Bridal-gown-preservation services see the VIP staff carefully purifying dresses and placing them in specialized packaging that preserves them for future generations. The stain specialists also regularly refresh the theatrical costumes of the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, and make sure to provide commensurate care when cleansing the fanciful disguises of their everyday customers.
