Cotton blankets.

Good old-fashioned cotton sheets add an easy-to-clean warming layer to your bed. Set your washing machine to gentle, with cold wash and rinse cycles to avoid shrinking. Dry on delicate with medium heat, or hang outdoors on the line. 

Bedding best practices.

Laundering bed linens often isn’t a top priority — most Americans change the sheets every three weeks. But if sleep with pets or have been ill, messy or “active,” strip the bed once a week. Every hour, your body sheds about 200 million skin cells, plus sweat, body oils, moisturizing lotions, and regular old dirt. Sheets and pillowcases should be laundered in the hottest water possible (check the care label) to thoroughly clean. Treat yourself to a good night’s sleep in a freshly-made bed.  

Hi ho 2020.

Back to work we go. Looking your best on the job is more than good sense. It’s the way to make your presence professional, capable and on top. Your drycleaner does more than remove spots and press the pleats where they belong. We contribute to your successful image with business attire that’s maintained at its best. So you look at yours.

Holiday cleanup.

Before you stow away remains of the holiday, make sure everything is clean and ready for another celebration. We clean messy Santa suits, pitchy tree skirts, eggnogged lapels and almost everything else. We’ll do our best to remove the ugly from holiday sweaters — sorry, ugly that’s woven into the design is beyond our even the latest cleaning technology.  Here’s to a bright, clean, and beautiful New Year.

Happy New Year!

“You are never too old to set a new goal or dream a new dream.” – C.S. Lewis.  May your new year be filled with smiles, love, luck and prosperity.

Resolutions.

New Year’s resolutions for Tuesday. First, Peace. Followed by the usuals: eat better, smile more, lose weight, learn something new, share, drink more water, walk. To that we’ll add “Say Hello” to someone new every day. We say hello a lot every day as part of our job. And the more we do it, the more we like it. Drop by soon and we’ll show you how good it feels to be greeted as a friend.  

Merry Christmas.

We’re closed today to be with family and friends, celebrating the holidays and preparing for a wonderful new year. As Charles Shultz, creator of Peanuts, said, “Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.” We hope you’ve enjoyed your share of “a little something extra” this year. We’ve built our business by providing it to every customer, every day. We wish you the best and thank you for your patronage.

Happy solstice!

Tomorrow’s the longest night of the year — days start getting longer Sunday morning! We can make your time in bed even more comfortable with cleaning and laundry services to keep everything from sheets to pillows and comforters fresh and cozy. 

Holiday travel.

Traveling for the holidays? Make your trip easier by packing smarter. Choose a travel wardrobe that will do double or triple duty for extended wear. Use the plastic wrap from your cleaning to separate items and prevent wrinkling. Stuff shoes with stockings and underwear. Pack complete children’s outfits, complete with socks and underwear, in zip plastic bags.  Have safe, easy travels and a great holiday.

Winter hazard warning.

Deicing products, like salt, are a welcome relief from slippery sidewalks and driveways. But when salty slush and water splash on your clothes, the chemicals can pull color, leave rings and create permanent stains on winter clothing and shoes. Before your snow-spattered trousers, skirt or outerwear show the signs of damage, bring them in for prompt cleaning or laundry.
