*Testimonial of the Week*
"As I was opening my recently delivered, clean sweaters, it occurred to me how much I appreciate Lake Mills Cleaners. [...]  Thankfully, a dear friend referred me to you.  Pick up and delivery has made my life easier [...] and I really, really appreciate the care that you take with my items.  Everything is clean with no chemical smell and the items are folded and packaged with great care.  You provide a quality service and I can't thank you enough.
Best, Alex A."

Our Mission To "Going Green"

* Our free pick-up and delivery trucks run on LP instead of regular gasoline.

* We recycle our hangers and plastic. 

* The Stoddard dry cleaning method is reclaimable through the dryers.  This way it does not go out into the environment and pollute the air.

We have introduced the new Green Garmento Bags.  It allows you to save the use of plastic and instead use reusable bags.  You put your dirty garments inside the bag for us to pick up, it then turns around and covers the clean garments; therefore, no need for reproducing plastic.  Please contact us today if you would like to be environmentally friendly and take part in this service.


Our History

Lake Mills Cleaners has a long history of dedicated customer service. Since its conception in 1938, the Tarnutzer family has owned and operated the business. Casey Tarnutzer was in the dairy business and saw an opportunity to build a family future in the dry cleaning business. In 1951 his son, Dick, joined him in the business, and it soon expanded far beyond the shores of beautiful Rock Lake. With the creative marketing concept of FREE PICK UP AND DELIVERY* the business grew to service most of the south/central Wisconsin area. Today Dick's son, Lance and daughter-in-law Ellie, own and operate the business. Today, a fourth generation is in line to continue the great family tradition of customer service and satisfaction at Lake Mills Cleaners.

Cooler Weather Savings

September has arrived and (good or bad?) we are are already noticing the change in weather.

With the change in seasons fast approaching comes the change in our wardrobe, the change in flavors, the change in our home decor.  We all put away the light and bright items and replace them with the warm and fuzzy.  We all enjoy the ambiance of our own homes and currently, many of us are staying home a lot more as of late.  Take this time to go through closets and get all of your household items cleaned & sanitized--think drapes/curtains, blankets/comforters, rugs, pillows-the items needing cleaning are endless!  (Especially before those holiday gatherings that will be here before you know it!)  Let us help you worry about one less thing to prepare for with our September coupon!
