Mission Dry Cleaners
105 Washington Street, Mission Hills
Dry-cleaning work is the same no matter where you go; the biggest difference is service, which is top-notch at Mission Dry Cleaners. Jan and her husband, immigrants from China by way of Vietnam, have owned and operated the shop, founded in 1912, since 1990 and bend over backwards to accommodate customers. Stain removals are a specialty, and the difference after cleaning is often surprising. Tailoring is also available. Pants $2.75; shirts $2.75 dry-cleaned, $1.75 laundered. Skirts and dresses from $3.75. Free parking in front and 15-minute parking zone on First Avenue nearby. Hours: 7:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m. weekdays; Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
