Dry cleaning is the best way to launder elegant garments, delicate linens, and water-soluble dungarees. Wash your wondrous wears with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of laundry, dry-cleaning, alterations, and restoration services at any of Tripp’s Fine Cleaners' 12 locations.
The International Fabricare Institute’s only Certified Professional Drycleaner in the Midlands and winner of Columbia Metro’s Best in Columbia title for eight years running, Tripp’s Fine Cleaners has pampered the delicate dermises of fine fabrics and garments for 43 years. Spare your sweater ($7.20) the wrath of spaghetti sauce, unsully suits ($14.40) and polo shirts ($6.05), and purge your pleats of last night’s lap-plate pudding party ($7.20). Tripp’s staff of master drycleaners can alter last week’s wedding dress for tomorrow’s return to the altar, and a seamstress is on-site at many locations to fix popped buttons, ripped stitches, and other casualties of live-ammo square dancing. Tripp’s can also stow your summer or winter clothes for an entire season and offers boutique services for designer items.
If you’re just too busy to leave the house or fear the colony of indignant ground squirrels living at the end of your driveway, take advantage of Tripp's pick-up and delivery service. Leave coarse, guttural garments at your doorstep, and Tripp’s will return them, dappered up and talking fancy. Pick-up and delivery areas are limited, so check to make sure that you're in the laundry loop.

Tripp’s Fine Cleaners
"We use the best soaps, solvents and equipment available to the industry. We do not take short cuts," Tripp Penninger told Columbia Metropolitan in 2011, one year after the magazine's readers voted Tripp's Fine Cleaners as the best dry cleaners in Columbia. Grandson of the couple that founded the business in 1987, Tripp and his staff of nearly 100 employees have earned their prestige; as Sanitone-certified master dry cleaners, they've carefully cleaned thousands of garments and have been trusted with preserving the wedding gowns of brides in South Carolina and beyond.
They clean regular laundry with low-temperature water, ensuring that nothing shrinks or becomes misshapen, and they use special procedures for high-end garments, making sure to wine and dine Chanel suits before removing wine or dinner stains. Tripp’s seamstresses are on hand to remedy ill-fitting garments, usually returning alterations in about three days. The staff picks up and drops off items free of charge in specified areas and offers complimentary seasonal storage with the purchase of cleaning.
