Since the results were so surprisingly good we looked further into what what makes the local cleaners stand apart. City suits seem to favour the out of the way Best Care for their shirts. The company boasts an exclusive pressing machine and is famous for not shrinking shirt collars. Dollarwise is known for their environmental and non-toxic stance against perchlorethylene, or perc, a carcinogenic chemical used in most dry cleaning processes. Delta Cleaners are famed for their stain removal, Perths for their convenience (with 21 locations in the city), and Metro has long been the go to cleaners for River Heights and Tuxedo residents.
