Calling upon more than 50 years of waterless-washing tradition, Jet Cleaners brightens dirty threads with dry-cleaning services fit for a variety of garments. The specialists regularly cleanse the theatrical costumes of the Yale Repertory Theater and the Yale Drama School, and provide equal care to customers’ blouses ($6.25+), jeans ($6.70+), ties ($4+), sweaters ($5.95), and shirts ($6.25+). With free weekly pickup and delivery services, Jet Cleaners accommodates busy schedules and ensures that pants do not get lost when walking home on their own. In addition to purifying sensitive fabrics and exuberant colors in a spacious, high-ceilinged facility, the team cleanses and preserves wedding gowns to ensure they’ll still be pretty and wearable when future archaeologists decide to get married.
Since Jim and Mike Amore opened Jet Cleaners in 1956, the place has become a rite of passage not only for Mike Amore Jr., who worked there as a teen and now represents the third generation of his family's business. The company's Facebook page fondly catalogs photos of staff through the decades, occasionally noting the growth of their careers and families, or marking their passing. The good feelings are mutual, as the community voted Jet Cleaners Elm City's Best Dry Cleaner and Tailor in 2011. Voting with their dollars, the Yale Repertory Theater and Yale Medical School entrust Amore and his team with their costumes and lab coats, a practice begun after hearing the school's dean relied on them to starch his upper lip. A light touch with these delicate materials extends to refreshing heirloom quilts and wedding gowns, as well as tailoring suits.
