Cleaning clothes without water and walking on the moon both sound impossible, and yet seeing Buzz Aldrin's space suit at the dry cleaner's provides evidence of both. Defy skeptics with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $22 worth of dry-cleaning services at Modern Dry Cleaners.
Since 1948, the fabric gurus at Modern Dry Cleaners have whisked away stains and odours from garments, draperies, and linens. Sports jackets ($13.25) can regain their crisp collars and cuffs, and two-piece suits ($23.75) can shed the outer layer of grime that results from conference meetings devolving into pie-eating contests. Shirts ($3.70) emerge with renewed wearability and duvet covers ($29.99) wrap sleepers in a fresh-scented cocoon. After duds undergo a thorough washing and scrubbing, quality inspectors ensure fibres have shed their stains, and mend any missing buttons. Additionally, this Groupon entitles customers to $100 off a wedding-dress preservation.
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.
