Three words strike fear into the heart of every mom: dry clean only.
Here to save the day: a sweet deal from Green Apple Cleaners. For just $50, you’ll get $125 worth of ecofriendly dry cleaning. While most Laundromats use a chemical called “perc” (the gross carcinogen that makes your cashmere smell), Green Apple uses only liquid CO2 and water, which keeps threads nontoxic and flushes out the perc left from previous cleanings.
Wary about effectiveness? Consumer Reports gave the eco-process top marks, saying it yielded better results without shrinking or stretching fabric.
You can drop off your clothes at locations in either Park Slope or the West Village. For more time-strapped moms (all of you), Green Apple offers pickup service anywhere in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Who knows what you could do with all the time and money you’ll save?
The possibilities are frightening.
