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 to Village Cleaners, valid at locations in Georgetown, Leander, and Round Rock. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of dry cleaning.
- For $45, you get $90 toward bridal-gown cleaning.
Village Cleaners spiffs soiled garments in an eco-friendly process that employs sanitary technology to leave clothes clean and odorless. Each shirt ($2.25), blouse ($5.70), and two-piece suit ($9.95) first undergoes a six-point inspection, which seeks out any loose buttons or stains shaped like the Louisiana Territory. Next, cleaners peruse each item’s included care instructions to ensure that the shop’s cleaning regimen will not harm cherished clothes-stuffs. The staff then hand-finishes each piece, re-inspects it for lingering spots, and bags newly cleaned garments in order to keep them as fresh as a newborn daisy.
The Village Cleaners team also restores wedding gowns to their original luster and places finished products in archival storage boxes ($90+). The staff hand-finishes each detail of every gown, from stain to missing sequin to dingy hemline, aided by a gentle application of earth-friendly solvents. When finished, gowns rest amid acid-free tissue paper, which protects frocks from the effects of time and sabotage by jealous bridesmaids’ gowns.
Though Village Cleaners sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The textile technicians at Village Cleaners purify wardrobes using a biodegradable solvent called DF-2000 Fluid. This hypoallergenic, eco-friendly solution is sensitive to the needs of fragile fabrics but still has the muscle to break down dirt, grime, and salad dressing around the collar. A fresh dose of solvent goes into each load, along with fresh soap and a brand new filter, to ensure that clothes emerge from the machine as clean as technologically possible and free of static, odor, and allergens.
But the process doesn’t stop there. Once clothes are clean, the staff will starch shirts if requested and replace any broken or missing buttons at no charge. A final inspection sees to it that no spot or stain escapes back into the world, and alteration, repair, and leather care tends to especially needy garments.
