emu Cannot fcxiat wnere
Grease, Grime and Soil Have
Been Thoroughly Removed.
Not onlv should one have all clothes
cleaned very often, but one should
also see that the cleaner who cleans
them adheres to the rules of sanita
tion himself. . t :
For Instance, a cleaning concern
doing "cheap" work is very apt to use
dirty gasoline, which has been used
over and over atrain without being
sterilized. And then ajrain,. mftny so
called cleaners and, tailors work-in
one room and live in the next room.
One cannot tell what disease the
tailor's family my be subject to, and,
being riprht in the next room to your
clothes, the disease germs have an ex
cellent chance to climb into your togs.
Dresher Brothers, ; tfce immense
cleaners and dyers, with plants at
2211-2217 Farnam St., are sticklers
on cleanliness; if you can find a
cleaner or more sanitary plant than
Dresher's in the whole world. "where
will you find it? Where? When
Dreshers finish with your garment the
garments are not only cleaned, but
they will have lost whatever germs
they may have fostered.
If you would enjoy the privilege
of a sanitary cleaning service of that
sort, phone Tyler 345 and Dreshers
will send a man to your home. Or,
you might leave your work at the
nlant, at Dresher The Tailors. . 1515

2216 Harney St., or at one of the
Dresher branches in the Burgess-Nash
