Budget Dry Cleaner South Bay
May 2, 2007 10:08 PM   Subscribe

Is there a budget dry cleaner in the South Bay? When I lived in Washington, DC there was a dry clean depot (which later became Zips) which would dry clean any item for $1.50. Since moving to the South Bay (Sunnyvale -San Jose area), I've not found anything similar and my dry cleaning bill is wrecking my budget! Anyone know of a $1.50 or $2.00 per item dry cleaner?

Best answer: There's an "any item for $X" over on Mary (and Washington) in Sunnyvale next to a Starbucks. I'm not sure of the name or what X is these days, but they do a passable job.. cash only upfront, of course.

Ugh, I hope you get a good answer to this. The "budget" dry cleaner I went to once in Palo Alto made me wonder what prices were like at a non-budget place. I took what I figured would for sure be enough cash and ended up having to bust out the Visa.

I think there is one in Cupertino at the corner of Stevens Creek and DeAnza, in the strip mall with the Starbucks. Never used it, though.

Actually, I've had the exact same issue since I moved from LA. I live in San Mateo if anyone knows of one near here!

I hope someone can offer a good place near San Mateo, too. The one I go to is good, but VERY pricey. I have a pile of stuff but can't bring myself to fork over the 40 bucks just to have it cleaned.

I seem to recall there being a place called "2.50 cleaners" at Saratoga and Stevens Creek. I don't know if every item is $2.50, and I don't know the quality of their work, and I can't seem to find any info on the internet.
