March 3 was National Dry Cleaning Day and we honored the inventor of the dry cleaning process, “dry scouring”, Thomas Jennings. We also honored this founding father of dry cleaning during Black History Month too.

Why Dry Clean?

We deserve to enjoy our cherished items of clothing and dry cleaning is a way to make them last longer. Dry cleaning protects the fabrics which can be damaged by the water and heat used by traditional washers and dryers.

Dry Clean Only

Look out for the “dry clean only” description in your garments. Other items of clothing can be washed traditionally, even if they say “dry clean”, (depending on material and your confidence in cleaning these items). However, starting at $5 per item, you can’t go wrong by bringing in your garments for Dri Clean Depot to take care of with our Wash and Fold service.

Women's History Month Dry Cleaning Specials

Women’s History Month Specials

March is Women’s History Month and we want to celebrate by bringing you some dry cleaning, shoe repair, tailoring and maid services specials!


Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.
