Laundry

Our silicone based starching system is the industry standard. We use starches that don't change the look of the garment, but still give that hard finish our customers are looking for. Our wet-cleaning system is a non-aggressive process that utilizes chemicals that enables us to maintain the color of our denims and cottons. This also extends the life of your washable items and preserves the original look over time. We are committed to keeping all your laundry items clean, crisp, and renewed.

Dry Cleaning

TailoRite is committed to using environmentally safe solvents to clean and maintain your precious garments. Our "green-machine" utilizes a "Eco-friendly" solvent that has no toxins or adverse chemicals. This ensures that you and your family are not being exposed to any hazardous or harmful solvents that may still be lingering in your garments when you receive them. Our petroleum based solvent used in our dry-cleaning process gives us the ability to remove day-to-day dirt and grime from your clothing. Our wet-cleaning system allows special enzymes and stain removing agents to remove tough stains from your cottons, linens, denim, etc. while still maintaining the look and luster of your clothing.
