    Wedding Dress Cleaning

    Angela at Pratt Abbott took such great care of my dress. She updated me throughout the whole process and somehow got all the stains out! We even got a card from her congratulating us on our marriage. Very sweet!

    So amazing!

    Pratt Abbott Cleaners did such a great job caring for my dress after the wedding, and preserving it for years to come. From the first virtual consultation to final pick up, working with Pratt Abbott was easy, convenient, and top quality. I couldn't imagine trusting any other company with the most important dress of my life!
