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 $15, you get $30 worth of dry cleaning and pick-up/drop-off services from Dressed in Blue Dry Cleaners. Call with any questions about the covered area or the nearest pick-up/drop-off point.
Dressed in Blue deals in heaping abstergent attention on apparel and attire, with an array of dry-cleaning services. Get a shirt laundered and hung ($3.25), or jolt a jacket ($11.95+) awake from a slumber of stains and sludge. Skirts ($8.25+) and dresses ($14.50+) can taste the soothing splash of solvents, while tuxedos ($20.80) can be touched up in time for next week's high-society jewel theft. Other items that can be dry cleaned include sweaters ($8.35+), full-length overcoats ($21.50), two-piece suits ($18.95), and blouses ($8.95 for basic, $7.65 for cotton). And unlike many other dry cleaners, Dressed in Blue doesn't price its services based on a garment's gender, origins, or preference for Freud over Lacan.
The friendly cleaners will pick up and drop off garments at designated downtown locations, saving clients the trouble of having to navigate the city's maze of alligator pits and lava fountains. Arrange for items to be picked up from your office, or leave clothes with concierges at residences if your workplace enforces a strict "no dry-cleaning transactions" policy. Orders are generally ready within two to three days. Schedule dirty duds to be picked up, and enjoy the convenient and cleansing services of Dressed in Blue Dry Cleaners.
The garment-bag deposit normally charged for new clients is included in this Groupon.
