“Olive Oil on her pantsuit. Someone who’d lived in New York longer would have heard of the Professional Stain Remover Kit from Upper East Side dry cleaner Madame Paulette. Each travel-sized kit contains three separate chemical formulas. You choose which to use depending on the stain (oil = solution number three) then play mad scientist, dabbing on the top-secret ingredients in sequence. Ten minutes later you’re stain-free and feeling inordinately pleased with yourself.”

“Let’s say you dropped $70K on some Lanvin couture. Then you spilled molten chocolate cake all over it. You’re not just going to run that baby down to the steamy dry cleaner on the corner, are you? No. Madame Paulette is your only option, really. If you have clothes delicate or expensive enough to warrant the four-star treatment, then you probably already know all about this local wonder. If you haven’t already been, what are you waiting for?”
