That Spotless Spot
Try to Say It One Hundred Times Very Fast
NO GARMENT SHOULD
BE PUT AWAY UNTIL
IT HAS BEEN THOR
Dirt grease wrinkles and
creases ruin a garment faster
than proper wear.
If you lay your winter clothes
away dirty they will look old
and dingy next fall, and may
be full ot moths.
t Dry cleaning not only re
moves all dirt, grease, germs,
moth eggs, etc., but if put
away In the box or bag In which
they aro returned there is ab
solutely no danger of moths,
and your clothes aro ready to
wear any minute you want I
them in the fall.
Tell our driver hoAv you want
them returned, whether in box
or bag. and thev will rnmn
home ready to lay or hang '
away, we win guarantee them
to open up satisfactorily In the
Phone for a wagon.
