Before dry cleaning, clothing was washed by dressing up a phalanx of backyard laundry scarecrows just before thunderstorms. Today's deal lets you do away with sopping strawmen and clean your clothes the new-fashioned way—with science. For $15, you get $35 worth of eco-friendly dry cleaning at Green Apple Cleaners in Park Slope. Green Apple uses CO2 dry cleaning, an EPA-certified green technology.
The green technology is a relatively new alternative to the older chemical-based dry-cleaning systems, some of which contained carcinogenic compounds and others of which contained baby drool. Protect yourself from these hazardous chemicals while simultaneously protecting clothing as the CO2 cleaning takes place at room temperature so it won't shrink or fade clothing, or heat-infuse stains into the fabric. The process also captures all of its own carbon emissions to be reused elsewhere.
Being conscious of the environment won't cost you an arm and a leg, unless you still operate on the limb-trade bartering system established by feudal lords. Prices start at $2.75 for shirts, $7.01 for sweaters, $14.88 for a two-piece suit, $14.03 for jackets, and $7.23 for skirts, so put your mind, your nose, and your filthy, filthy pants at ease with a trip to Green Apple Cleaners.
