Lady Macbeth tried to remove the legendary blood spot by sanding it, letting sweatbees lick it, and staring at it through binoculars before she finally gave up and stained the rest of her body to match. Avoid fatal spot-removing methods with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of eco-friendly dry cleaning plus free pick-up and delivery at Clothesline Cleaners' six San Antonio locations.
Clothesline Cleaners uses the environmentally safe Miele cleaning system to banish muck from button-up shirts (starting at $2), pants ($5.50), comforters (starting at $40), and more while maintaining dimension, color, capacity for speech, and brightness. Friendly cleaners will first examine garments for spots and stains and coat them in a dollop of banana-oil pre-spotter. A citrus and soy agent with dye blockers and fabric protectors follows before garments are treated with silk protein. All items are reshaped while wet and then dried, pressed, and given a final inspection for perfection, which may or may not involve donning a deerstalker hat and peering through an oversized magnifying glass.
This Groupon is good at any of Clothesline Cleaners' six locations, but you don't have to go, since it's good for either drop-off or pick-up and delivery. You'll notice the difference in how your clothes look, smell, and feel, and you'll breathe easier knowing your health and the environment are protected from the toxicity of laundrykind.
