Cincinnati, Ohio, February 21, 2021 — Families across the state of Texas are hurting following an unprecedented string of harsh weather that cut off millions from access to electricity, heat, water and much more.

Texas residents can locate a nearby Tide Cleaners and get their personal clothes washed for free beginning Monday, February 22 through the end of operating hours on Friday, February 26. Tide Cleaners believes in the importance of life over laundry. With families all across the state facing challenges unlike any other, this is more true now than ever before.

Lobby - We utilize bins to help minimize person to person contact. If you visit our lobby, please practice CDC guidance and maintain safe distance from employees and other guests.

  • Our stores continue to have high standards for hygiene and sanitation. We have increased the frequency of cleaning our stores, countertops and other surfaces as precautionary measures. We've increased the frequency of employees washing their hands with soap and water and drying their hands with paper towels. Additionally, we use rubber gloves to handle garments. We are continuing to follow guidelines and recommendations set in place by the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for all Tide Cleaners locations.
  • At Tide Cleaners, we are committed to using an extensive cleaning process for all garments to ensure an effective and professional clean. Our dry cleaning process involves high temperatures and uses environmentally friendly technology. We have scientists working around the clock to ensure our guests receive a thorough clean on all garments that are brought to Tide Cleaners.

Free services are available to all one time between February 22 and February 26. Each family can have one 13-gallon bag of clothes cleaned free of charge. When Tide Cleaners reaches capacity for the day, we will let guests know that we are unable to accept any further loads that day, and they can return the following day to have their laundry done. COVID-19 exposed clothing, clothing worn while treating patients with COVID-19, leathers and wedding dresses are not eligible.
