Recognized by the Drycleaning & Laundry Institute and Sanitone, Colonial Cleaners is a family-owned operation that's been banishing grime from clients' duds for more than 60 years. With dry-cleaning services, business suits ($9.35) and slacks ($4.70) shed all evidence of office ink-cartridge fights, and dresses ($9.35) emerge ready to drape gams in stainless folds. Patrons can stretch unsullied arms in laundered shirts ($1.99) and sweaters ($4.90), or drop off such specialty fabrics as silk, cashmere, and rugs, which have recently become a hot item in the world of couture fashion. The helpful hands at Colonial Cleaners can also remove the icing from post-wedding cake fights and return wedding gowns pressed and clean. While prices vary depending on the gown, cleaning services usually range from $50 to $250 and may cost more. Items typically await retrieval after three days.
