Before dry cleaning, clothing was washed by dressing up a phalanx of backyard laundry scarecrows just before thunderstorms. Today's Groupon lets you do away with sopping strawmen and clean your clothes the new-fashioned way—with science: for $25, you get $50 worth of dry cleaning at any Best Cleaners, which has 11 locations throughout Connecticut.
The cordial clothes caretakers at the family-owned Best Cleaners have expunged and primped area vestments for 56 years. Drop off grimy plain pants ($8.50), plain skirts ($8.50), jumpsuits ($21.30), or capes ($17.85), and they’ll treat each guest garment to an efficient pampering and de-schmutzing, clearing away stains and leaving collars crisp for popping. Their natural GreenEarth cleaning process is free of harsh chemicals and residual odors, earning appreciative smiles from the sun and keeping your native habitat from smelling like melted plastic Army men. Entrust your garb by 11 a.m. and it’ll be ready for pickup by 4 p.m.
