Like sleeping through an entire night or making a Thanksgiving turkey for lunch, laundry is a necessary but often time-consuming chore. Free up a few hours with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of dry cleaning, tailoring, and garment services at Express Cleaners, redeemable at locations on 158th Street, Lenox Avenue, and Lexington Avenue and at 2094A and 2714 8th Avenue.
Express Cleaners' expert staff cleanses apparel, enhances hemlines, and wallops wrinkles with a range of speedy and immaculate services. Drop off a shirt, blouse, or pair of pants ($3.50–$4.99) by 9 a.m., and the seasoned tog tidiers will have garments purified and polished before a jaw sees its 5 o'clock shadow. Office dwellers can cleanse a two-piece suit ($9.50–$10.99) between daily commutes, and a round of dry-cleaning for sweaters ($4.50–$5.99) and down coats ($20–$22) rids wardrobes of last winter's scent to avoid run-ins with jealous snowmen. Tailoring sessions enhance pants with alterations for lengthy hems ($8–$10) and broken zippers ($10–$12), and wash-and-fold services launder loads with efficiency ($0.95/lb). The company lavishes larger arsenals of apparel with complimentary pickup and delivery (15-piece minimum); every customer receives a free dry-cleaning bag ideal for future drop-offs and low-budget ghost costumes.
