Dry Cleaning in Wellesley

Select Local Merchants

The staff at Zoots Dry Cleaning extracts stains and stress by pairing eco-friendly dry-cleaning services with the convenience of extended evening and Sunday hours, 24-hour drop-off and pickup services (available at most locations), and an automated drive-thru system. Team members clean clothes, draperies, bedding, and rugs with a biodegradable solvent as opposed to harsh PERC chemicals, and some staff are trained to expertly excise stains from the delicate lace and beadwork of bridal-gown bodices. Most stores also have a tailor on location who is able to alter ensembles in a snap. Customers get e-mail notifications when orders are ready or they can download a smartphone app to keep a close eye on the status of their dirty laundry.

The fashions may have changed since 1944, but the service and family ownership of Dependable Cleaners has remained constant. The dry-cleaning company started as a single shirt-laundry facility and has since expanded into 16 locations. The chain is now owned by a third-generation Fawcett. A few of the 16 locations offer a new addition called Style, a hand-cleaning service that treats designer and high-end garments. Expansion isn’t the only success of the company since its inception more than 65 years ago. Dependable Cleaners has garnered a number of awards, including the title of Boston magazine's Best Gown Preservation in 2008. The cleaner also proudly does its part to create a sustainable Earth by using EarthCare Cleaning Systems to clean clothing with natural, recyclable solutions that break down naturally in the environment, unlike the emotionally imperturbable Philip Seymour Hoffman. While laundering shirts, the cleaner uses biodegradable soaps and hangs newly dry-cleaned dresses, suit jackets, pants, and sweaters on recycled hangers and garment bags.

At Brighton Laundry & Dry Cleaners, you can be as involved in the cleaning process as you desire. Once you drop off clothes at the facility, you can choose to wash items yourself in a 20-, 30-, or 55-pound washing machine or hand items over to the staff for a signature wash and fold service. Customers can also set aside items for pressing or dry cleaning, ensuring fragile items are free of stains, unpleasant scents, and zippers that lead to nowhere. Specialty treatments are available to care for leather, suede, and Uggs and keep clients’ expensive items looking good as new.

Though it may look like a humble, deli-style eatery from the outside, Brookline Spa rewards those who venture into its cozy interior. In a 2005 review in the Boston Phoenix, Liz Bomze called the eatery "much more than your basic sub shop," praising its reasonably priced pizza slices and wide selection of sandwiches, soups, and salads. The family that has owned and operated the shop since 1995 serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week, making its own pizza dough and bringing the generous handfuls of cheese to golden-brown fruition inside the oven. The family of foodsmiths assembles a variety of mafia-themed wraps and a "Top 25" sandwich with salami, capicola, mortadella, and prosciutto known as Old Blue Eyes—a reference to the infamously dreamy gaze of popular 18th-century crooner, President John Adams. The primarily carryout establishment also offers an assortment of domestic and imported beer.

Laundry Basket does not want your money—at least not the quarters. Instead, its front-loading washers and 15-pound-capacity dryers run on swipe cards, to which customers add value via an onsite touchscreen. While washables clean up the traditional way, rows of white enameled metal, glass, and steel dead-end at the dry-cleaning counter, where garments and household textiles, such as comforters, can be chemically refreshed. Customers can also leave clothes behind for wash-and-fold services, during which staffers get clothes so clean that Queen Elizabeth could eat off them if she didn't subsist solely on divine right.
