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 $10, you get $20 worth of dry-cleaning services at any of Lyerly's Cleaners’ eight locations: Coleman Boulevard, Anna Knapp Plaza, Riviera Drive, Long Point Road, and Park West Boulevard in Mount Pleasant, or Savanna Highway, Sam Rittenberg Boulevard, and Folly Road in Charleston. This Groupon can also be used toward free pick-up and delivery.
Each year, more than 100,000 people trust the grime vanquishers at Lyerly's Cleaners to erase unsightly stains in a timely, convenient manner. The affable staff can cleanse barbecue-sauce-stained dresses ($11.25), wash donut jelly from suits ($11.85), remove clingy suitors from sweaters ($6.45), and spiff up garments of all varieties. After their laundered raiment is delivered, customers can flaunt crisp pants ($5.65) and fresh-smelling ties ($11.25) on the red carpet at a nearby rug store. Prices may vary for clothing that is made of unusual material or has been stored in a hollowed-out gourd.
