Tablecloths, linens and household item laundering Our state-of-the-art equipment allows us to clean most large household items on-site – including tablecloths, linens, draperies, bedding, feather comforters, sleeping bags and small rugs. We send down pillows to be renewed by an off-site specialist who will clean, sterilize, and fluff the feathers. The refreshed feathers are then stuffed into a new, complimentary slipcover.

rug, fur, leather & suede cleaning We have found that these items demand specialized attention, so we send them to off-site specialists who share our commitment to quality. Please remember to bring in any care information that came with the garment – it will help us provide the best possible outcome for your leather, suede and fur. Stains that are old and set cannot always be removed safely, so be sure to point out all stains. To ensure all your matching pieces continue to match after cleaning, have them cleaned at the same time.

wet cleaning Considered a safe alternative by the EPA, wet cleaning is a water and detergent based process that greatly reduces the use of dry cleaning solvents. Many fabrics that are typically dry cleaned by other cleaners — cottons, linens, polyesters, some rayons and silks, are good candidates for wet cleaning. We carefully color-test each garment. If it qualifies for wet cleaning, it is inspected for stains and carefully pre-spotted. The garment is then processed with specially formulated soap and professionally steam-pressed.
