St. Michael’s Laundry moves beyond suits, shirts and linens

Author: Carol C. Bradley

Last year, St. Michael’s Laundry became one of two facilities in the region to offer an environmentally friendly “wet cleaning” system as an alternative to dry cleaning—one of a number of new services available at the laundry.

Now, you can bring your Ugg boots and high-end athletic shoes for cleaning, as well as designer purses and handbags.

The laundry also offers bridal gown and tuxedo alteration, as well as cleaning and restoration. Gowns may be pressed only or fully wet-cleaned and boxed in acid-free paper for preservation. Gowns already yellowed through aging can be restored. The laundry’s bridal service also includes gloves, purses and veils.

St. Michael’s Laundry has two locations. The main plant is located off Juniper Road, north of the Notre Dame Federal Credit Union and west of Mason Services Center.

On campus, the Laundry Pickup Center/Mail Distribution Center building is off Holy Cross Drive in the west end of the A-15 parking lot (south of the Main Building and just west of St. Liam Hall).

Hours for both facilities are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; tailor shop hours are 8 to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 631-7422 or visit or
