    1. do you wear an undershirt? try to iron shirts between dry cleaning (save you money)

    2. also do not always just dry clean then try launderung instead (ONLY DRY CLEAN IF SOILED)
    Many shirts, especially the cotton dress and casual shirts most of us wear regularly, should be laundered. A good laundry will press your shirts properly, and you can have them folded or put on hangers, as the dry cleaner probably does. Now, when you say dry cleaning is relatively cheap, do you mean you have a relative who is a dry cleaner? Because dry cleaning is an arm and a leg and maybe a crotch more expensive than laundering. My cleaner charges $5.50 to dry-clean a man’s shirt (this is Manhattan, guys) and $2 for a laundered shirt on a hanger. Dry cleaning costs 175 percent more, and according to my esteemed cleaner

    Dry cleaning should be done only when the garment is soiled. If it’s crispness you’re looking for, have your pants pressed (considerably cheaper than a full cleaning), get a home steamer and steam them yourself on a hanger (that takes a minute)

    3. if possible do the dry cleaning/laundering in the ghetto (they do just as good as a job and 50% cheaper ive found) I get my items dry cleaned/laundered in the barrio of phoenix, AZ

    Does anyone do this? I need to lean out some expenses this year and dry cleaning seems to be a big culprit. Currently I'm paying about $30-40 a week for laundering of my clothes. At $120-160 a month and $1,440 - $1,920 a year it could be advantageous to explore other avenues.

    Anyone do their own dry cleaning?
