What You'll Get
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 $9, you get $30 worth of dry-cleaning services from CleanDirect.com, which offers complimentary pick-up and delivery within the New York metro area.
Pledging effective, gentle, and environmentally friendly dry-cleaning technologies, CleanDirect.com's garment guardians aim to amplify the vibrancy of everyday, rare, and delicate fabrics. With flexible pick-up hours available for busy schedules, patrons can expect a quick turnaround within 24 hours, after which unsoiled wardrobes will be reunited with owners via home delivery. Check the website under "services," then "service price list" for a full list of dry-cleaning services, which include the de-sullying of suits ($14.95–$19.95), tuxedos ($18.95), full-length coats ($19.95), dresses ($12.95–$14.95), skirts ($7.95–$9.95), and undergarments ($4.95), but never battle armor or Technicolor dreamcoats.
