Recognized by the county and city of San Mateo as a Bay Area Green Business, Press On Cleaners utilizes green practices that rid duds of dirt and odors without causing harm to humans or the environment. Its Professional Wet Cleaning system needs no toxic chemicals or solvents to get the job done, and the company’s commitment to biodegradable detergents and recycled hangers and poly bags decreases its carbon footprint. Customers can also schedule pickup and delivery for services that they use regularly, eliminating the hassle of driving to retrieve their formalwear, household linens, or leather.
Committed to truly green practices, Blu White Cleaners freshens up soiled duds with chemical-free wet-cleaning processes that deodorize and clean finicky fabrics. Using biodegradable detergents, staffers soak shirts ($1.85–$2.15), pants ($6.50–$7.50), suits ($12.95–$14.95), dresses ($11.95–$14.95) and other garments in a water-based cleaning solution that provides a CEPA-approved alternative to harsh dry-cleaning chemicals that is safe for fabrics too delicate for machine washings or wind scrubbings from busy skydivers. De-soiled duds can be picked up within 72 hours, allowing patrons to keep wardrobes stocked with outfits as sparkling and fresh as a germaphobe's disco ball.
In business for more than 40 years, Green & Fresh Cleaners plants itself as an eco-friendly dry cleaning service that’s responsible with garments, clients, and the planet. Its non-toxic cleaning solution, GreenEarth, is made from sand and does not contaminate soil, groundwater, or the air, making it the preferred dry cleaner of well-dressed geese everywhere. Because it is chemically inert, it is unlikely it would damage the texture or color of garments, and actually helps to preserve quality and prevent shrinkage. GreenEarth can calm even the most irritable fabrics, including silks, suede, beads, sequins, and painted garments. Green & Fresh Cleaners also cleans and preserves dresses ($13.50), down coats ($15), blouses ($6.50), sports jackets ($9), and sweaters ($6.50).
Pledging effective, gentle, and environmentally friendly dry-cleaning technologies, Aqua Cleaners tenderly galvanizes garb to arrive soft to the touch and brilliant to ogling onlookers. Entrust your soiled apparel—from polo shirts ($7.47) and pashminas ($9.97) to shirts ($6.97) and ski jackets ($15.97)—to the personable dirt detesters, who treat clothing with a combination of clean and safe liquid carbon dioxide. The liquid's low surface tension and viscosity render it resilient against malignant stains, penetrating and tidying with a cool temperature that is easy on delicate clothing. This mild yet efficient process does not emit harmful gases nor does it employ toxic solvents, which can transform otherwise placid Oxford shirts into mutant polka-dot straightjackets.
Green Leaf Cleaners restores sullied suits and blemished blouses to sparkling form using environmentally friendly methods. The diligent cleaning crew at Green Leaf Cleaners is trained to seek out and eliminate stains, while dodging vulnerable buttons and ticklish zippers. Basic dry cleaning services start at $5.50 for garments such as skirts, pants, and vests and are $18.95 and up for full coats. For special garments, opt for the gentle cleaning process, which uses a computer-controlled cleaning process and computer-controlled dryers to return clothes in high-def 3-D.
In 2002, owner Peter Xu realized that the chemicals of traditional dry cleaning had caused damage to his hand, so he began a complete overhaul to eliminate those chemicals from his business and the lives of his customers. Today, Nature's Best Cleaners uses a chemical-free cleaning system known as "wet cleaning" that uses a water-based solution with natural cleansing agents. The process leaves no residue and evicts chemical-pollutant stowaways hiding in clean clothing. For those who have always wanted to defy the "dry clean only" warning, wet cleaning satisfies rebellious desires without threat of shrinking or spontaneous combustion.
The staff members at Classique Dry Cleaners maintain their customers' clothing with water-free, eco-friendly solutions. Although dry cleaning is their signature service—including care for larger items such as comforters and bed spreads—the technicians also alter, repair, and restore garments such as wedding gowns, shoes, leather, and purple pants that have been recently exposed to gamma-ray-induced rage.
