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.

More Savings For YOU!

As summer begins to unwind, so does the children coming in and out, the messes from the sandbox, the mud from the rain, the dirty shoes from the garden, the grass clippings from yard work...the list could go on and on, but the reality is that we are about to welcome snow a lot sooner than we hope to be!  When is the last time you cleaned that rug protecting your floors under your dining room table?  What about the entry way rug that sees the shoes on a daily basis?  Vacuuming is a great house tool to have, but it doesn't complete a deep clean of the rug.  We are here to help keep not only your garments looking their best, but your home also!
