What can I do if I'm too busy during the holidays to make trips to the dry cleaners?

Solution:  Check and see if your cleaners offers a FREE pick up and delivery route service to your home/office.  It's a strange concept to some, so I thought I'd answer a few common questions I receive about our route service.

1.  When do you come by for pick up/delivery?
Depending on your location, we follow a Monday & Thursday or Tuesday & Friday schedule.

2.  Do I have to be home for delivery?
No.  We provide you with 2 garment bags and a clear door hang for your front door. 

3.  Should I worry about my clothes being taken?
No.  This has not been an issue for us or thousands of cleaners across the country. 

4.  Do I need to call you for a pick up?
No.  We will always be by 2X a week whether you have soiled garments or not.

5.  How do I sign up for this free service?
You can sign up at www.nuyale.com or give us a call at (812) 285-7400.
At Nu Yale Cleaners, we are committed to saving you time and money with your dry cleaning.  Once you try our free route service, you'll never want to make another trip to the cleaners again.  So give us a call or sign up online and come see the Nu Yale difference today!

3 easy ways a dry cleaner can help you go green?

After recently receiving the 2010 GLI inc.credible award for the Greening/Sustainability category, I would like to share some simple ways to protect the environment with your dry cleaner.
The Dry Cleaning Process:  Is your cleaners still using a hazardous solvent called Perc or Hydrocarbon?  If so, seek a cleaners that has proactively switched to a CO2 based process or Solvair.  These are currently the only methods approved by the EPA and are more effective in removing a wider range of stains.
 Recycling Hangers:   Some cleaners may use a biodegradable hanger while others actively promote the recycling of hangers by providing free hanger caddies for their customers.
Free pick up & Delivery:  See if your dry cleaner offers free pick up & delivery to your home or office.  This not only saves time and money but also helps the environment.
At Nu Yale Cleaners, we are truly green in all three areas.  Our New Glacier Dry Cleaning developed by Solvair is the only in Kentuckiana.  We encourage our customers to return hangers in our free hanger caddies and any customer can utilize our free pick up & delivery service by simply signing up on our website.  Go green and come see the Nu Yale difference today!

A few things to consider before your big wedding day.

As a your local wedding gown cleaning and preservation specialist, I’ve been hearing many brides ask questions about how to best care for their gown to ensure it looks the best on their wedding day.   So here’s some tips from the professional.
Storage:  Take your bridal gown out of the garment bag if the bag is plastic and hang your bridal gown where it will be safe from children or pets. Wrap it in a clean sheet to protect it from light and dust.
Traveling:   The easiest method is to have a wedding gown specialist like us press, hand steam, and stuff your gown with tissue so it can travel safely, and we can make those little repairs to loose beads or hanging threads, too.
FREE!  When you pre-purchase your wedding gown preservation from us or any member of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialist you receive a free pressing!

The post wedding dilemma: A few things to consider when deciding where to have your gown cleaned and preserved.

Situation:  The wedding is over and just as you thought all the wedding decisions were done, you realize your gown needs to be cleaned to preserved. When deciding who you can trust with your gown here are a few quick things to find out.

Look for a cleaner who specializes in cleaning and preserving wedding gowns. Most cleaners DO NOT handle wedding gowns in house. They send them off to a specialist, often in another state. Not good. You want a cleaner who takes responsibility for your gown.

Ask if the cleaner has been specially trained and is a member of an Association. The last thing you need is someone who is going to practice or “learn on the job” with your beautiful gown.

What kind of guarantee does the cleaner provide? Today or twenty-five years from today, who is going to honor the guarantee that your gown will still be in perfect, ready-to-wear condition?
