Couture Designer Dress

We are often asked to recommend a cleaner in another city to those moving out of the area or as a reference for a friend or family member. We would love to be your cleaner even if you live outside our service area. That is why we came up with our CleanByMail service, particularly for your specialty garments (ties, knits, etc.). However, for your everyday clothes there are some other excellent cleaners scattered throughout the country. The best are those identified as a member of the Leading Cleaners Internationale, of which we are one of the five founding members. Please visit the Leading Cleaners Internationale website for further information. However, along with the Leading Cleaners we have included below some other cleaners of recognition as well. If you live in an area that we have not provided a recommendation, talk to the manager of the designer or couture department of the finest garment retailers in your area. Ask a few and see if there is a consensus. Please click below if you have a favorite dry cleaner you would like us to consider adding to our list!
