Before dry cleaning, clothing was washed by dressing up a phalanx of backyard laundry scarecrows just before thunderstorms. Eschew sopping strawmen for science with today’s Groupon to Fine Drycleaning’s three locations: on Dalhousie Drive Northwest, Tuscany Boulevard Northwest, or Elbow Drive Southwest. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $22 worth of clothing dry cleaning
- For $225, you get a bridal-gown cleaning and preservation (a $450 value).<p>
The friendly staff at Fine Drycleaning’s family-operated trio of waterless washing centres has been laundering local linens for more than 30 years, employing extreme attention to detail and careful handling techniques. Cleaners determine the proper cleaning methods for renewing wardrobes, adroitly handling even the most delicate sequined, beaded, or googly eyed ensemble. Two-piece suits gleam after thorough ablutions ($21) and dresses regain lost luster. Additionally, slacks, sweaters, and skirts ($10) susceptible to shrinking in water and bouts of motion sickness in the dryer can undergo a gentler scrub down.
Fabric-care technicians at each location also execute their professional de-griming on bridal gowns, capping the service with a gown pressing and thorough quality inspection. Then, wedding garments are wrapped in acid-free tissue paper before being placed inside a museum-quality container. Customers may view their gown dozing peacefully on the other side of the container’s polypropylene window, resistant to humidity and mildew, light, and paint-balloon fights.
