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 $18, you get $40 worth of dry cleaning at Sam Meyers Dry Cleaning and Laundry. Choose from 12 locations in the Louisville area.
Founded 106 years ago just after the invention of clothing, Sam Meyers Dry Cleaning and Laundry cleans clothing to rid garments of ground-in grime. Detail-oriented dry cleaners strike out stubborn stains from skirts ($7.80) and sweaters ($7.41) with the diligence of a lab chemist and the gentle touch of a newborn porpoise swaddled in cashmere. Use today's deal to look dapper in spotless sport coats ($7.41) and spick-and-span two-piece suits ($13.57). Sam Meyers also offers cleaning services for Uggs and other winter boots to erase evidence of slush-puddle jumping and winter salt-ball fights.
