Ask Me Anything > Do you handle dry cleaning as well?

Will you do dry cleaning as well or just laundry? Also, do you check the tags on nice clothes in case I accidentally add some dry clean only garments?

Hi Anthony!
We currently do not handle dry cleaning, we only offer full service (and self service!) laundry. We do check tags, but FYI we generally wash all items regardless of whether the tag says "Dry Clean Only." This is due to the fact that "Dry Clean Only" is a myth and everything except some ties and all leather garments can be washed! Dry cleaners actually launder most items the way we would(and charge you 5x as much)!! I actually washed an all leather purse for a customer because it had been damaged by smoke & soot from a fire in her apartment. The dry cleaner wanted to charge her loads to clean it, so as a last ditch effort we washed it! The purse came out beautifully-EVEN THOUGH IT WAS LEATHER! Believe it or not even silk and wool can be washed! Wool must be washed in COLD water hand ALWAYS hung to air dry. Our machines have special settings for Woolen or Delicate Items and they work wonderfully. The only advantage to dry cleaning is getting your items professionally starched and pressed, which we do not offer. If you do have items you are unsure about, we ask that you bag them separately so we can make sure to pay extra care to those garments and hang dry them if necessary. Hope this answers your question!
