Clothesline Cleaners saved the day! We were told our daughters borrowed dress could not be cleaned in time for prom three days before the big day … Clothesline was recommended to us by a dress store owner as we frantically searched for a new dress but I was doubtful. We dropped off the dress on Thursday and by 1:00 on Friday they had our dress cleaned and ready for pick up! Thank you so much for saving the dress and saving us so much money! The customer service we received was second to none!

Thanks again for everybody’s great work in restoring my leather bomber jacket. The lining was completely shot, and you and your staff replaced it with better lining than the original. I appreciate the extra care in finding the right kind of fiber batting to go under the lining. I’m glad to see the original labels were kept and restored to their original places after the lining was replaced, and the inside pocket was completely restored. The outer surface of the jacket had become dry and battered, and your team oiled the leather while allowing the jacket to still show its age.

It looks fantastic. I also appreciated the great care you took in packing it carefully in box that was designed for jackets to be shipped flat instead of folding it up. 
Great work. Thanks again.


Our heartfelt thanks for your contributions to our 4th Annual Bowlathon! Your support is vital to our ongoing success providing homes and new lives for hurting women. Chrysalis Women’s Transitional Living Inc.”

Keh, I just had to let you know that your crew at the Meridian store are AWESOME! On August 21st I got a very frantic call from my niece who had just picked up her wedding dress for her wedding on the 22nd. There was no way to bustle it up and the place she got it was of no help. She called me and headed to JoAnn Fabrics. In the mean time I phoned your Meridian store and told them her dilemma. Andrea said that Bethany was there so if I could get the dress there she would take a look. I had my niece meet me there and your gals (Andrea, Cindi, and Behany) were so great! They helped my niece relax, told her they would have it ready for pick up at 4pm. I could not thank them all enough! Not good to be the bride and stressed the day before your wedding. Again, please pass on our gratitude! I thanked them a ton already. Wanted you to know.”


I took 2 sleeping bags, an antique quilt and a couple of pull over shirts to your Orchard location last week. Great customer service. The associate called me a couple days ago about a stain issue. She checked with the customer before proceeding. She made the right call! Thank you Clothesline Cleaners. ~Happy Customers”

Great Customer Service!

Thank you so much for helping up find suits for our graduates for Graduation this past Friday! It was wonderful to celebrate their accomplishments with them and they all looked great! We have had many donations come in because of the email that you sent out to the community. Just yesterday, I picked up a trunk load of men’s clothing from someone who saw your email! All of those donations will be used to help the men, women and children staying at our shelters. We really appreciate your heart for those in our community in need! ~ Alicia Boise Rescue Mission Ministries”

I was recently making a home visit to an elderly client when a representative from Clothesline Cleaners knocked at her door. He said he was there to hang the draperies that she had recently had cleaned and picked up. He went about hanging her custom draperies and she questioned him if he was the one that always went around hanging draperies. From his reply i gathered that they don’t usually hang draperies but that he made a special trip to her house to hang them for her. She thanked him kindly mentioning that maybe she would also thank his supervisor. And then with a little gleam in his eye and a smile on his face he said, “Well ma’am, i am the owner and just wanted to make sure you were taken care of.”
