Best Dry Cleaners (2012)
1193 10th St., Monterey
Since its 1921 founding Vapor Cleaners has been on the forefront of personalized service. Now the third-generation, family-owned business is leading the way toward environmentally friendly cleaning practices. Vapor Cleaners was only the 20th dry-cleaning business in the country to partner with Green Earth, an environmentally friendly process that replaces petroleum-based solvents with liquid silicone, which is made from sand. And recently, Vapor’s laundry detergents were officially certified green. Along with standard laundry services, Vapor also offers alterations for men’s and women’s clothing, zipper replacement, hemming, tailoring, insignias, embroidery, monogramming, wedding gown restoration and dying. Vapor cleaners will give your clothing the best treatment possible in a conscious way.
