This laundry is like no other anywhere in the world. I took a very beautiful and badly damaged, intricately embroidered tablecloth to this establishment. The cloth came back pristine-looking. The many large and difficult repairs were impossible to find and as always the cloth was laundered and packaged perfectly. Charges are nothing for what they do to restore and preserve the textiles that come to them.

My family always used these people to launder and dry clean. People send things from all over the world here for good reason. I now live in Washington, DC and anything truly fine is sent back to this modest-looking establishment on Lake. The finest linen shops in New York City recommend their clients send their good linens "out West" to the French Hand Laundry.

It is so refreshing to find a company that knows the forgotten art of actually cleaning properly! I've been a customer for 10 yrs and have sent them family heirlooms, items with fur trim, and my favorite clothes, and every time it comes back perfectly. I think we're all so used to cheap 'dry cleaners' that don't do anything more than a service equal to 10 minutes in your dryer with a fabric softener sheet and are, accordingly, as cheap! AND act like having your clothes damaged when they are cleaned is an accepted risk(!)If you care for it, take it to FHL, if you don't, take it anywhere else.

I've been trying various dry cleaners in Pasadena, and I thought I'd give this place a try since I live near by. This place was nice, but its a bit inconvenient and really expensive. They said they needed a week to get my 5 items cleaned, none of which required any special care. On top of the long wait, they have strange business hours (they close at 4:45 pm on week nights) so it took me a few extra days to find the time to come in during their business hours. When I finally got my clothes back, I was shocked that the bill came to nearly $80. The clothes looked beautiful, but for the price I paid, I hope they repel dirt and stains. I would take special items here (suades, antiques, etc..) but I don't plan to make them my regular cleaner.

The ladies at French Hand Laundry know the chemistry behind their craft and formulate specifically for various fabrics and materials. They can also mend and clean things you didn't think could be fixed although my experience is with getting a water spot out of satin which they said had not been successful - but looked 100% better to me so I could wear the top again. They also care for the clothing of the Autrey Museum and the day I went in, several of Madonna's costumes were hanging to be cleaned and archived in her collection. Park on the street. Not inexpensive enough for all my cleaning.

PROS: knowledge and skill with unique situations, choice of museums
CONS: not the cheapest.

I managed to buy a mint-condition 1950's mink-collared coat for $5, but had to get it cleaned. I just didn't feel right about turning this gorgeous garment over to my 99-cent local dry-cleaners, so I started calling around. French Hand Laundry it turns out knows what to do with a mink! They even have contracts with museums to properly launder fabric and clothing exhibits. If you care about a garment, spring for getting it cleaned here: It won't come cheap, but you'll rest easy knowing your clothes are in the most capable hands.
