I've been dropping off my laundry for the past several years now, but really only know about the drop and fold. My work wardrobe is more business attire these days (male), but can't seem to figure out the terms and services usually available. This may sound a little silly, but I run into language barriers and unclear signs in every laundromat in a 10 block radius.
So whats usually available besides the classic wash & fold (and dry cleaning)?
-I have button down shirts, what does pressed mean?
-Whats the correct term for wash and iron? Sometimes they look puzzled. (sometimes they don't have this service)
-If you have your shirts done itemized, the $1.75 each option, what are they doing?
-How do most men get there work shirts laundered at these places?
Thanks, and note: these laundromat persons around me are all pleasant, and hard workers, but I just can't figure out whats what.

I'm looking for a Wash & Fold and (very ideally) pickup/delivery service in Manhattan (UES). However, I'm concerned about one thing in particular: handling of delicates, specifically synthetics and elastics. [more inside]

What's the best way to remove stains from a shirt that has been washed over and over? (And anyone from NYC ever find that their shirts come out worse after washing?) [more inside]
