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 $10, you get $22 worth of dry-cleaning services at Modern Dry Cleaners.
For more than 60 years, Modern Dry Cleaners' fabric finessers have vanquished stains and odours from garments, draperies, and linens. Customers can imbue sports jackets with a lustrous finish ($13.25) or prepare two-piece suits for regal debuts ($23.25). Shirts ($3.70) also return spot-free after a trip to Modern Dry Cleaners, rendering the wearing of stain-concealing lobster bibs unnecessary. During the cleaning process, crews wash and starch shirts in a soapy serum in an effort to remove stains that don't come out in water, such as those caused by blood, oil, or falling asleep atop a Rorschach test. Shirt collar and cuffs are then meticulously pressed, resulting in a crisp, clean fit.
After their scrubdown, shirts undergo scrutiny from Modern Dry Cleaners' quality-control inspector, who ensures all stains have been evicted from the premises. Dry cleaning also extends to household fabrics, allowing a thorough scrubbing to save duvet covers ($29.99) from being repurposed into Halloween costumes. Additionally, this Groupon entitles customers to $100 off a wedding-dress preservation.
Though Modern Dry Cleaners sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Modern Dry Cleaners
Charles Potter opened Modern Dry Cleaners in 1948, when he first helped customers tidy up clothes using the most modern methods available. His son Ron now helms the shop's back room, where he puts his degree from the International Fabricare Institute and certification as an environmental dry cleaner to good use on clients’ most delicate fabrics. The store's technicians are also experts at preserving wedding dresses and other specialty garments, which they groom according to their care labels and responses to a standard Rorschach test.
