Since one of our commenters asked for an update on my dry cleaning (and I always do what you people tell me to in the comments section), here it is!
I got my clothes back today from Georgetown Valet. All done, on time, and I must say - they look fantastic. I should probably do my dry cleaning more often because my skirts have never looked so good. Not even when they were new!
As for the prices... women always get hosed at the dry cleaners. I just don't know why, and I don't know why we don't stage a major protest on the issue... but seriously, if you're a dude reading this, I'd like to compare prices.
Here's what I had done:
1 pair of pants
If you count the suits as two pieces each, the total was 8 items. I paid $43, or just over $5 per single item (including tax).
That certainly seems like a lot to me, especially if dudes pay like... $2 per shirt. And do I get charged more if it's a suit versus a jacket and a skirt? I think I might...
But, for this area - it might be decent. Does anyone have an experience or prices to compare?
