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.
Eco-friendly dry cleaning, 35 years of experience, and free pickup and delivery are just a few of the marks on Mayfair Cleaners’ resumé. Using hydrocarbon solvents, the cleaners happily clean all manner of garments ranging from shirts, blouses, and slacks to dresses and suits. They also offer advanced services such as custom alterations, complimentary clothing storage in mothproof bags, wedding gown preservation, and specialty cleaning for items such as tablecloths, suede, or juice boxes.
Since 1982, family-operated Lorraine Village Cleaners has rejuvenated garments to pristine form with meticulous cleaning services, all of which are performed on the premises to guarantee superior quality. The company’s stain slayers dry clean away blemishes across the garb gamut, giving a second chance to pants ($7+), blazers ($8.75), shirts ($6.75+), dresses ($14+), and sweaters ($6.75) too dirty for the cleaning solution of water, tears, and wishes used by many other cleaners.
Lapels Dry Cleaning's professional staff purifies prized fabrics with environmentally friendly practices that have earned the cleaners certification as an EnviroStars business. Prices vary from location to location, but customers can drop off sullied sweaters ($6.25+), pants ($6.35+), two-piece suits ($13.45+), or down comforters ($30+) for a cleansing encounter with an odorless, nontoxic solvent. As a further commitment to eco-friendly commerce, Lapels recycles all hangers and bags, and uses only low-energy LED signage rather than coal-powered billboards or easily weaponized nuclear marquees.
Commended by Boston magazine in 2008 for wedding-gown preservation, Dependable Cleaners offers a basketful of laundering and dry-cleaning services.

Brookline Grooming & Pet Supplies provides a fully equipped self-service cleaning zone for hound handlers to scrub four-pawed pals without sullying home bathrooms or kitchen sinks. A self-service dog wash provides guests with all materials needed to de-dirt Rover, from shampoo and water to towels and tail-waxing tools. An arsenal of brushes and combs detangle knotted coats, and high-velocity dryers dry fur more efficiently then forcing your pooch to car surf on the way home. Today's Groupon gets owners 45 minutes of washing time, which is available on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday through Saturday after grooming hours are over (usually around 3 p.m.). No appointment is necessary, but Brookline Grooming recommends that pet owners call ahead to check availability.
