Since 1934, the staff at Macintosh Dry Cleaners has groomed textiles with dry-cleaning, laundry, and specialized services. Staffers clean dust, stains, and clingy housecats from draperies or tailor home hangings with their Adjust-a-Drape machine. Gentle, eco-friendly cleaning methods banish grime from everyday wardrobes and ready delicate wedding dresses for preservation.
Locally owned and operated since 1992, Sketchley Cleaners endeavours to enhance appearances and strengthen the fibres of customers throughout Kitchener and Waterloo. The specialists employ a progressive selection of laundering techniques ($2.50+) that include folding and starching shirts and hand-scrubbing collars and cuffs. Using gentle machine cycles and waterless solvents, staffers work to purify pants ($7.35+) and dresses ($12.10+); hand-pressing services pamper two-piece suits ($15.25+), eliminating wrinkles and evidence of lunch-hour snorkelling sessions. Depending on the services requested, clients pick up clothing items within 1–3 days of dropping them off. Sketchley’s King Street East location in Kitchener and Bridgeport Road and Weber Avenue locations in Waterloo also offer on-site tailoring, making it possible to finally stitch a favorite shirt-and-pant combo into a unitard.
Since 1950, Texmain's laundry specialists have kept wardrobes in mint condition with methods designed for the unique properties of each fabric. They dry clean an array of garments and meticulously remove cake, rice, and other stains from delicate wedding gowns. For structural issues, tailors can replace missing buttons or mend rips.
