MIAMI — A spilled drink that threatened to ruin an important business meeting was the genesis of CleanTie, a new online service that assists users in finding and scheduling reliable dry cleaning and laundry pickup and delivery services.
Entrepreneurs Dariy Margaritov and Ryal Del Rosal started CleanTie after they found themselves scouring a hotel’s phone book in search of emergency dry cleaning in an unfamiliar city.
“We spent a lot of time searching, which caused great frustration,” Margaritov says. “Even once my clothes were off to the cleaners, I worried until they came back. How was I to know whether this establishment was a reputable cleaner? That is when we came up with the idea for CleanTie.”
Business or pleasure travelers can quickly and easily locate and schedule dry cleaning and laundry service. CleanTie offers ordering services for more than 150 dry cleaners across 20 states. Its soon-to-launch free app will be compatible with many mobile devices for greater access on the go.
