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 straw men and clean your clothes the new-fashioned way—with science: for $15, you get $30 worth of dry cleaning at Glenridge Cleaners, located in Waterloo on Lincoln Road.
Registered with the Ministry of Environment, Glenridge Cleaners refurbishes filthy fibres with the utmost professionalism and ecological responsibility. An experienced staff of amiable apparel polishers cleans, inspects, and crisply packages each article of clothing or household fabric before offering it tea and sending it off with a tearful goodbye. Crisp up a pair of pants ($7.60), or salvage a designer blouse not designed to sustain your niece's reckless ice cream-eating techniques ($7.60). The shop opens its doors six days a week to licentious two-piece suits ($18.95) and alfredo-dipped shirts ($2.95).
