Welcome summer.

Treat yourself to fresh laundered and pressed summer wear. We finish knits like polo shirts to perfection. Most summer stains are no match for our professional-strength laundry products and machinery, especially on whites. We add crisp and clean to every wardrobe.

Wash or clean?

When to dryclean, when to throw it in the wash machine?  Convenience and quality aside, there are situations when dry cleaning simply is the best choice: Acetate, rayon or silk, leather or fur garments or trim, tricky to iron, structured or tailored with interfacing, specially finished, stiffened garments. The number one reason to trust it to us – your garment is expensive, fragile or special. We do it all, from dungarees to designer.

Stain no-nos.

Beware D.I.Y stain remover tips – they often do more harm than good.  Remember three basics: 1. Never pick or scratch at the stain, it breaks the fabric and causes permanent damage. 2. Don’t rub anything into the stain – you are pushing the stain into the fabric, not taking it out. 3. Do not put anything on the stain, it can cause color loss.  Trust our cleaning experts.  Save your favorite garment and bring it to us immediately – and be sure to tell us what you spilled. We’re trained to get stains out, professionally.

Wash before wearing.

New clothing comes with more than just a new look. Almost all fabric is treated with a cocktail of chemicals that can cause irritation. Clothes are treated with preservatives to prevent mold or mildew during shipping. Formaldehyde resins, dyes and chemicals used in manufacturing can lead to contact dermatitis, eczema outbreaks or respiratory problems from simply breathing the fumes.  Happily, laundering or cleaning removes much of the chemical residue.
