  • Get the most from our cleaning.

    Our expert service starts when we tag and inspect your laundry –looking for stains, tears, broken buttons, snagged zippers. You can help by telling us about, or marking with masking tape, trouble spot. Our stain removal expertise is always enhanced when we know the cause so we can use the correct pretreatment. And remember, stains only get worse with time so make sure we get to work on it as soon as possible. […]

  • Bulky bedding.

    Get a jump-start on spring cleaning — bring us all your bulky bedding – we specialize in cleaning and preparing for safe storage. Our professional staff will make sure your downs, wools and silks are ready for next winter’s storms. […]

  • A little softener goes a long way.

    Soap-like fabric softeners coat laundry with a waxy lubricant that lets the fibers slide past each other, reducing wrinkling and smoothing scratchiness. They also make napped fibers stand on end for fluffiness and reduce static cling caused by tumbling in the dryer.  Over time, the waxy coating can create a dingy look and reduce absorbency in towels and sports fabrics designed to wick moisture. For whiter whites and brighter colors, use a high-performance laundry detergent (like we use every day) and skip the softener. […]

  • Too much color.

    Are your table linens suffering from spring’s brightly colored cakes, eggs, candy or crafts projects? It’s always best to trust the professionals – DIY stain removal can cause more harm than good. For best stain removal results, bring the boo-boos to us right away, and let us know what caused the stain. If anyone can save your linens from a dye-tastrophy, it’s our trained cleaning and stain removal experts. […]

  • Off the rack.

    Even clothes from top designers don’t always fit right off the rack.  When you find a must-have for this season, buy one size up and bring it to us. Our expert onsite alterations department will tailor your new “fashion must have” to custom perfection. […]

  • Let us do the wash

    Are you getting bogged down by a never-ending pile of household laundry? We offer fast and affordable fluff and fold service. Towels, sheets, kid’s clothes and more – spend your precious time where it counts – and let us do the dirty work in our large-capacity washers. And don’t forget to ask us for an easy reusable laundry bag – once it’s full, drop it off with your normal dry-cleaning! […]

  • Look out for lavender.

    Not the perennial border plant, the color. One of the hottest spring trend colors is soft, feminine lavender. You saw it in on the runway in knits, suiting and formal wear from Victoria Beckham and Michael Kors and you’ll find it on racks in retailers near you. This toned-down purple pastel is flattering, soft and fresh. […]

  • Spring cleaning early?

    Start with closets. Review your collection of winter wear and donate everything you didn’t use this year. Now inspect the keepers for damage, stains and wear. Mark problem areas with masking tape and we’ll repair, clean and press everything before it goes into storage for the season. Ask about seasonal storage in non-plastic packaging. […]

  • Sustain your wardrobe.

    The added wearability you get from professional cleaning is actually a benefit to the environment. Every extra wearing you get from a garment reduces the need to buy a new one and keeps it out of the rag heap or landfill. Our gentle cleaning and laundry procedures add life and comfort to your wardrobe, preventing shrinking and fading and extending the value of your investment. […]
