When all that’s left of the holidays are cigarette butts and wine stains, aesthetes will love you for a chance to have their wares restored by the expert. Madame Paulette (1255 Second Avenue, near 65th street; 212-838-6827), which cleans garments for Fendi, Gucci, Versace even Sotheby’s, offers gift certificates for its obsessive-compulsive services, including the Vera Wang and Badgley Mischka approved Bridal division which gets shipments from as far away as Turkey. “We invite brides to see their dress before we pack it up,” says owner John Mahdessian, “and if they live outside the city, we take a digital picture with the grass stain out and email it to them.” He’ll also dispatch a team of cleaners to your house (or jet, or yacht he notes) to scour balloon shades, headboards or antique rugs on the spot.
