Dry cleaners for a down comforter
Any recos? Thx!
Green would be ideal - has anybody used Green Hangers on 7th Av / 8th St?
Subject: wash your down comforterDown can be washed with water, unless the outside fabric cannot withstand laundering. I had to clean my down comforters and found the local dry cleaner charged about $30 - $40, depending on size. The local laundry with super-size machines charged about $15-18. As long as they dry the down sufficiently -- it's best to fluff with a clean tennis ball in the dryer -- you're golden.
Unfortunately, most of the dry cleaners in Park Slope and Prospect Heights suck ass. Granted, I haven't been to Green and I really hope they are the exception. I schlep all of my stuff to Hallek (sp?) on 2nd Ave by E.67th St. They're pricey and take some time but they do the job right. I wish they'd open a branch in Kings County."Clamato! Straight Up! No chasah!
