    In the Dry Cleaning horror thread someone mentioned the idea of a recommended cleaners thread. I absolutely agree. Personally, I am looking for recommendations in Boston or the metrowest suburbs.

    In Philadelphia, Gem Cleaners is fantastic. The shop is at 546 W Carpenter Ln (in Mt Airy) and they do pick-up/delivery (215 848 6190). It's expensive but really worth it. Everything is done with the utmost care and attention. Tom also does business via FedEx.

    I recommend the ``Golden Touch'' on Mass. Avenue. They are slightly pricey but the service is excellent. They even hand-press shirts for around $5. They are much better than anybody else I have tried in the Boston/Cambridge area. I hope this will help.


    Golden Touch
    987 Massachusetts Ave - Cambridge, MA

    617-576-6840

    Outside of Philadelphia in Bucks County is Carriage Trade.

    1108 Bustleton Pike
    Feasterville Trevose, PA 19053-4130

    They offer "hand wash" dry cleaning, one garment at a time and it includes pick up and drop off. They pride themselves on offering the best laundry and dry cleaning service in the area.

    The way I get recommendations for dry cleaners in other cities is to call the local Saks/Bergdorf/NM/ or their local equivalent and ask which cleaners they use.

    Do they hand press shirts also, or only suits?

    French cleaners does hand press, they also wash cold water and hang to dry. The cost for shirts is $4.75 on a hanger and $5.00 folded.

    Does anyone have more recent recommendations for a dry cleaner in Philadelphia - ideally Center City?

    I am looking to have a decent lot of suits cleaned following the fall season and would like a good quality cleaner (I had previously used Parkway in DC).

    Thanks for advice from Philadelphians!
