Appreciation Day.

Today we celebrate the dedication, ingenuity and friendliness of our staff. We’re proud to employ the wonderful people who answer the phone, clean, finish and deliver your laundry, always with a smile.

If we can improve, be sure to let us know. If you’re delighted, let us know that too. We’re committed to 100% satisfaction – in your cleaning and in our service.

Valentine kisses.

Here’s hoping Cupid treats you well this Valentine’s day. We love all our customers, every day of the year. And if that lovin’ feeling gets a little rambunctious, remember we can almost always remove lipstick stains from nearly everything.

Stain first aid.

When you want to try removing a stain at home, remember that even everyday stains can be problematic. For any stain, blot with water.  Never club soda, never rub or scrub. Time is of the essence, fresher stains are easier to remove. If the garment is not washable, give it to us with a note describing the nature of the stain – our experts have products and techniques that can do wonders

Wedding budget.

With an average cost of $32,000, smart couples start saving early. The Knot magazine recommends finding out who will pay for what and what their expectations are. The bride’s parents often split most of the bill with the couple, but settle the details long before the cake is ordered. A detailed budget will list costs, like $575 for the average cake. Of course, our bridal department can help too — from restoring an antique gown to last-minute alterations, we’re here to make your wedding a dream.

Secrets of the loop.

Almost every top-quality button-down shirt has a tiny fabric loop sewn into the seam where the shoulder blades meet. The loop started way back in the Navy when sailors hung their clothing on hooks to save space. In the 1960s when the collegiate Ivy League look became popular, the Gant company reintroduced the little extra as a “locker loop.” The loop quickly became a status symbol. On some campuses, removing the loop signified that a man was taken and no longer free to date. We can make sure your button-down shirt is crisp and clean, with or without the loop.

Camel coat come-back.

The outwear classic is chic, flattering, timeless and versatile – definitely a good investment. Choose a tailored cut in a mid-length coat for serious wardrobe staying power. As with any investment garment, look for top-quality fabric from a trusted vendor. The best (and most expensive) camel’s hair has long, thin fibers for a warm and light garment that won’t pill.

Holiday cleanup.

Before you stow away remains of the holiday, make sure everything is clean and ready for another celebration next year. We clean sooty Santa suits, pitchy tree skirts, eggnogged lapels and almost everything else. We’ll even try to remove some of the ugly from holiday sweaters. We regret the ugly that’s woven into the design is beyond modern cleaning technology.  Here’s to a bright (and clean) New Year.

Back to work we go.

Looking your best on the job takes more than good sense. It’s a practical way to make your presence professional, capable and on top.  Your drycleaner does more than remove spots and press in creases where they belong. We contribute to your successful image with business attire that’s maintained at its best. So you always look at your best.

Welcome 2018.

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” Even the most extreme optimists will agree with Oprah Winfrey on this New Year’s toast – a fresh year with new opportunities and challenges, new rewards and surprises. New friends and new ideas. We wish you all the very best and plan to make this new year the best ever.

Holiday stain relief.

Candle wax, pumpkin pie, pine resin, turkey fat, red wine and lipstick stains (caused by mistletoe) are just a few of the risks of the holidays. Our stain experts know how to treat even the worst, using techniques and specialized products not available for home use. Bring the damaged item to us as soon as possible so we can get started before the stains oxidize.
