Preaching that “the longest journey stains with a single step” and “you can clean a horse with water, but you can’t make it drink,” history’s dry cleaners were a leery bunch. Today’s Groupon gets you a more-audacious clean. For $9, you get $20 worth of pick-up or drop-off dry cleaning from Kona Cleaners' six locations in the Orange County area.
Providing full-service dry cleaning to the Orange County area since 1950, Kona Cleaners has tidied more than a semi-century worth of suits, space suits, jeans, space jeans, pope robes, dresses, and sticky gorilla costumes. Prices vary by location; pants, on average, cost $5.35, a dress is $9.96, and shirts run around $2.65. Specializing in cleaning unusual materials such as caviar sequins and bread-bowl hats, Kona also expertly performs alterations ($10 average for a pant hem) and employs environmentally conscious cleaning methods. Their use of wet cleaning when possible and high-tech cleaning equipment is buttressed by a sophisticated sorting system and a well-trained staff that ensures each garment is restored to its fresh-off-the-particle-assembler condition.
Free pick-up services are offered, and the 17th Street Costa Mesa location is open seven days a week so that front-row seats to ketchup-popsicle eating bouts don’t leave customers with a red-polka-dotted shirt. Looking prim and dapper is difficult to do with a sausage-biscuit silhouette etched into one’s tuxedo T-shirt. Thanks to Kona's effective and convenient cleaning services, customers can expect to make a striking entrance crashing their next wedding, White House state dinner, or wedding-themed divorce pre-party.
