For 15 years, Max Q Cleaners has laundered most anything that guests can slide over its counter, from suits to rugs to handbags. The staff emphasizes thorough treatment in the interest of both apparel and the environment—they use a biodegradable green cleaning solvent to eradicate grunge, mindfully dispose of soil and chemicals, and recycle any returned hangers and plastic bags. Pickup and delivery services accommodate varied schedules, planning visits based on the frequency of each client's hands-free taco nights. The cleaners also welcome challenging specialty jobs. Certified restoration experts remedy smoke, fire, and water damage, and onsite tailoring and alterations adjust clothing to fit comfortably.
While the beauty professionals at Nu Aura Medical Spa concede that they cannot stop aging altogether, they perform aesthetic services that counter and abate its effects. A squad of doctors, physician's assistants, and licensed aestheticians wields ultramodern technology wands as it neutralizes spider veins, ousts unwanted hair, and smoothes the face. The specialists customize each treatment to the client, and bilingual staff members can consult with them in both English and Spanish.
National Drycleaners, which was founded by returning serviceman John Nordlund in 1944, is still going strong 70 years later. It has adapted to modern times, using environmentally friendly cleaning solutions to de-grime everything from garments to bedroom linens, removing dirt from Ugg Boots, and pressing the uniforms of robot butlers. With National Drycleaners' wedding-gown-preservation service, technicians hand clean and treat gowns, as well as preserve them so they don't yellow with time, a process that has earned National Drycleaners accolades from Wedding Wire for five consecutive years.
Executive Dry Cleaners' professional garment purifiers free nice attire of grime at their Belltown outpost. Their hands-on, water-free treatment erases stains and signs of everyday wear from the fibers of tops, bottoms, and dresses, and their wash-and-fold services clean up piles of laundry while clients run errands or mud wrestle in their favorite overcoat.
The stain-eliminating staff at Aloha Cleaners eschews the harsh chemicals of conventional dry cleaning to extricate grime and stains from clothing and fabrics in a nontoxic manner. Every soiled blouse ($9.95), slept-in sock ($2.50/lb.), or anthropomorphic pair of slacks ($9.95) that wanders through the door tastes a helping of “green” nontoxic hydrocarbon dry-cleaning agent that gently sloughs away stains to render garments as fragrant as rose water distilled from angel's wings. Other items that can awaken from their crud comas include comforters ($30–$50), overcoats ($20.95), and tablecloths ($30). The courteous cleaners at Aloha generally finish orders by the next day, though same-day service is available. A free pickup and delivery service for all locations saves patrons the trouble of navigating the city's maze of municipal garden mazes, with a staff member whisking away and returning laundry to home doors.
