Scared by care tags.

Hand washing may not always be the answer — “dry clean only” may seem like a scare tactic, but the manufacturer has tested the fabric, patterns and styles prior to production; hand washing may cause colors to bleed, styles to alter or the fabric to break down. Ask us to recommend professional dry or wet cleaning to extend the life and looks of your garment.

Extend the life of your investments.

Quality clothing does cost more, but with the right care, the cost-per-wear is lower than cheaper choices. Dry cleaning prolongs the life by removing stains before they oxidize. Soil and dust actually grind into the fabric, acting as an abrasive on the fibers. Our expert finishing team gently presses your garment for a crisp, new look – without danger of glazing from overpressing. Bring us your best and we’ll keep you looking your best.

Make your bed.

After summer’s hot and sweaty nights, it’s time to freshen your nighttime environment. Begin by stripping the bed down to the mattress. If you use a mattress pad, launder (or bring to us) and dry thoroughly, hanging on the line, if you have one. Flip and rotate the mattress. Is it time to replace your pillows? Unless they are very high quality down, it’s usually less expensive to buy new than clean old. Sniff test the winter comforter, blankets or quilts. We can clean them to like-new freshness – even king size is no problem for our machines. Be ready to snuggle up when winter chills arrive.

YKK?

Ever notice those three letters on almost every zipper? Turns out, they stand for Yoshida Kogyo Kabushikikaisha, the Japanese company that makes 90% of the world’s zippers in 206 factories in 52 countries. They even make the machines that make the zippers. Their largest factory, in Georgia, makes over 7 million zippers every day. Their goal of making the best zippers quickly made them the world leader, following the founder’s philosophy  “No one prospers unless he renders benefit to others.”  Come to think of it, we follow the same rule in our business. We are, however, a lot smaller.
