If your clothing or household items require basic repairs, for instance replacing a zipper or repairing a seam, you can simply drop off the item at either of our Boulder County locations with a description of the repair.

If you need a basic alteration such as hemming a pant leg or skirt, you can pin the item to the length you desire and drop off at either location.

If you need more customized alterations or fitting for a specialty item such as a prom dress or wedding dress, please call our Niwot store at 303.652.2133

What fabrics should be dry cleaned?
Fabrics such as silk, wool, cashmere, lace and other sheer fabrics, velvet, and other fine materials should be dry cleaned.
Garments and other items made with water soluble dyes, embellishments, embroidery, sequins, beading, applique, and netting are best cleaned through dry cleaning, as well.

Specialty items and heirlooms such as wedding and prom dresses and vintage heirlooms are also cleaned through dry cleaning to preserve their original condition.  

What is your dry cleaning and laundry process?
After you drop off your items or schedule a free pick up service, we will inspect your items for stains and damage. If we can easily repair the damage, for instance sewing on a broken or missing button, we will provide this service free of charge. For more significant damage, we will contact you to discuss options.

From there, we will pre-treat any stains.
Next, we will carefully inspect the care label to ensure that your item is dry cleaned or laundered according to the manufacturer's instructions.

After the item is cleaned, it will be steamed and pressed. Each item will be inspected for stains, creases, and other flaws before being packaged and made available to you.
For our environmentally conscious clients, we offer free reusable garment covers to avoid single-use plastics. Just ask our customer service representatives for a garment cover. The cover serves as a laundry bag, as well, so you can bring it with you each time.

Wear & repeat. : ) 

What kind of stains can you remove?
Spilled your coffee on your favorite dress? Pen leaked on your favorite shirt? There is hope!

Stains fall into four basic categories:  water-based stains, oil-based stains, protein-based stains, and dye stains.

Water-based stains are generally from tannins such as coffee, wine, tea, and alcohol. Sugar and dairy can exacerbate these stains.

Oil-based stains typically leave the fabric looking wet. Butter, cooking oils, cosmetic and hair care products are often the culprit for these stains. Motor oil is also a common fabric stains which leaves a black stain on the clothing.

Protein stains come from organic sources like food, blood, and sweat.

Dye stains are the result of that broken ink pen, grass, and fabrics “bleeding” in the wash.

Depending on the combination of stains, we will pre-treat your fabric with a multi-step process to remove the stains prior to dry cleaning or washing. The more information you can provide about the stain (e.g., where it came from and anything you’ve already tried), the more success we’ll have in returning your clothes to their original condition.
