Summer months make for extremely hot conditions for working at the dry cleaners

""They sit there and they perspire; We've had many employees work here a little while and then say 'Nope. not for me'-- even though they’re asked 'Can you stand hot heat?’” Those temperatures also affect business: "Right now, it’s been one of the worst. We use cool water to use our dry cleaning machine, and of course when it’s hot out, the water’s not as cool as it has to be.

"It’s a captivating story. Back in 1825, a careless maid in the employ of one Jean-Baptiste Jolly knocked over a turpentine lamp, spilling the liquid onto a stained tablecloth. Apparently, Jolly was a frugal man: turpentine, a liquid obtained by the distillation of pine tree resin, was a cheap alternative to whale oil, the common fuel for lamps. While Jolly may have been thrifty, he was astute. He noted that the stains vanished where the kerosene had soaked through the fabric. And at that moment the dry cleaning industry was born!
