Dirty clothes are traditionally worn only by grungy rock stars, vagabonds, and royals pretending to be "regular people" for the purpose of understanding life outside castle walls. If you don't fit into one of these categories, pick up today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of dry cleaning and laundry services from Image Dry Cleaners. Customers can choose to have their laundry picked up and then delivered, or they can drop it off at one of three area locations.
The spiffy, stain-distaining staff of Image Dry Cleaners spares tarnished threads the shame of being seen in public with zippy dry-cleaning and laundry pick-up and delivery services in the Chicagoland area. After calling for an appointment, a driver will arrive at the home or office of the bedraggled duds, foisting them away to finishing school. Grubby garments are examined under a hawk-like retina for tears, stains, missing buttons, and invisible ink treasure maps before being escorted to the chamber of clean. Image Dry Cleaners unsoils a variety of items, restoring silk, satin, and velvet dresses ($12.95 and up) back to their window-dressing glory. Trounced trousers ($5.30) and squalid suits ($10.55) get rebooted, and down comforters ($29.99) recover from late-night condiment altercations. Once the rehabilitated civvies are deemed fit to reenter society, Image Dry Cleaners promptly returns them to your home or office.
For those who opt to drop off their accoutrements at any of Image Dry Cleaners’ three locations, same-day and two-hour service is offered if the panoply is handed over before 11 a.m. Alteration services ($4–$15) are available for patching pants, adding buttons to blouses, and sewing Starship Enterprise insignias on turtlenecks. Leftover balances on your Groupon can be used for return visits.
