Boxing Day defined.

Last century, English servants were given a gift box and the day after Christmas off. Today, it’s celebrated as a day of charity, hospitality and feasting on leftovers with family and friends. It’s a holiday for some, with closed offices, schools and many businesses. And it’s an enormous travel day for returns home from holiday celebrations.

Last-minute preparations.

Be sure to pick up your cleaning before we close for Christmas to spend time with friends and family. Check our holiday schedule if you have last-minute rush orders, we’ll do everything we can to take care of your cleaning needs. Next week, we’ll be home, celebrating and relaxing. To quote from classic favorite “Miracle on 34th Street,” Christmas isn’t just a day, it’s a frame of mind. Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or the solstice, join us in a day of peace and goodwill for all.

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 entertaining.  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.

Holiday travel plans.

Make your trip easier by packing smarter. Choose a travel wardrobe that will do double or triple duty for extended options. Use 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.

Crisp, clean and professional.

That’s what you’re giving with a gift certificate from us. Your grateful recipient will enjoy expert dry cleaning and laundry with your compliments. We’ll create a certificate in any denomination, from stocking stuffer to magnificent. It’s a thoughtful, practical and one-size-fits all gift that’s always welcome.
