Wednesday June 27 2012 - King & Queen Cleaners Open House

91 Medway Road
Kohl's Plaza
Milford, MA 01757 King & Queen Cleaners Open House Wednesday, June 27, 4-6 PM Interested in making a simple "green" choice for your family? Did you know that most dry cleaners use a toxic chemical known as perchloroethylene (or "perc") to clean your clothes? Some of the solvent can travel with you into your home. Come see how a local cleaner has made a change to protect health and the environment. 5 Reasons You Should Attend See a behind-the-scenes tour of the machines and the shop. Receive a 10% coupon off your next cleaning bill Enter a drawing to win a basket of green products Congratulate King & Queen for making good business and environmental decisions We're friendly - join us for snacks and conversation. Water you say? Yes. But this is not your home laundry machine. Professional wet cleaning allows "dry-clean-only" clothes to be effectively washed with water in computer-controlled machines and then finished with tensioning and pressing equipment. With the help of a grant from the Toxics Use Reduction Institute (TURI) at UMass Lowell, King and Queen Cleaners in Milford was able to make the switch from using perc to professional wet cleaning. Come smell the difference. For more information, contact Maria Scholl at maria_s@turi.org, 978-934-4964.
