Celebrate the solstice.

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

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 gift that’s always welcome.

Velvet everywhere.

This season, we’re seeing more lush, plush fabrics than ever. Velour, velveteen and velvet all rely on cut pile for luxurious feel. Velvet is woven, cut and crushed while velveteen is simply woven and velour is knit. All the V fabrics are comfortable, warm and susceptible to wrinkles, creases and pilling. Always hang velvet on padded hangers, steam to remove wrinkles. Professional cleaning is always recommended for velvet.

Corduroy comeback.

The experts at GQ recommend choosing classic colors for a blazer, like hunter green or rich marine blue, in a thin to medium-wide wale. Avoid baggy fit or too-worn cuffs and elbows — a crisp new corduroy blazer with updated fit won’t break the bank. A sporty corduroy blazer pairs as well with dark slacks as with jeans.

Thanksgiving leftovers.

If candles dripped on the tablecloth, let everything cool and peel the wax off with your fingers.  If it’s stubborn, freeze the tablecloth, then scrape off the wax with a credit card. Wash in hot water to remove the remaining embedded wax. Better yet, and a lot easier, bring your table linens to us for expert stain removal, professional laundering or dry cleaning. They’ll come back clean and wrinkle-free, ready for the next celebration.
