Do you take things to the cleaners?

We always take DH's suits and his dress shirts. I don't have the patience or skill to get his shirts ironed or starched the way he likes them. I will do them if we're in a bind, but they look a lot better when they're done professionally.

Anyhow. We were using a place close to our old church, but it's way too far to drive anymore. And they went up on their price, so it's really not worth it now to drive all the way out there.

Just out of curiosity, if you take things to the cleaner on a regular basis (either drycleaning or just laundering), how much do you pay?

I have NO idea!!! Now that I no longer work in an office, I do not have any drycleaning!!

DH however does- he brings his suits, ties, and shirts - I have NO idea what he pays -

I used to work at a drycleaners in high school though - back then it was $9.49 for a mens 2 piece suit, $4.99 for a tie, and $0.99 cents for the 1st shirt, $0.49 for each additional ( WOW- I cant believe I remember all that!!) I am SURE inflation has increased it!!!

We have a 1.75 dry cleaner here in town and I love it! That's the name of the place too. It used to be called 1.50 but it went up in price as well. But still 1.75 for any garment.

DH takes his dress pants and dress shirts to the drycleaners every week. (He dresses up for work every day)

Nope, never. The only thing we get dry cleaned is Richs suit, like once a year.
