I should change the word ‘you’ in the title to the word ‘we’, because I am guilty of many of these habits too. Sometimes it’s because I am limited on the proper storage space and other times it is out of sheer laziness. After all, if you have 2 red tops, a pair of jeans, a bra, and a coupl...

Once upon a time, I hated the feel of Spandex, and when manufacturers started weaving small amounts into pants and jeans, I went through a shopping slump. My sister finally convinced me to give it a try, and today I am a huge fan of a small amount of Spandex in garments because it provides a nicer f...

There’s a scene in the movie Aliens when the Marines first encounter the aliens and head into their nest. One of them says “it’s hot in here” and another replies “yeah, but it’s a dry heat.” We’ve all heard that saying so many times that I wondered where it originated. While the Inte...

For as long as I can remember, a navy sports coat has been a part of Gray’s wardrobe -- since he was a wee lad. My mom started the tradition one Easter, and now as soon as he outgrows one, we purchase another. And it’s a good thing he’s gotten used to wearing a sport coat because........  Con...

To keep your rugs looking nice, leave your shoes at the door – but don’t remove your socks. Bare feet leave natural oils that can attract dirt.

Our Story

A Cleaner World was founded in 1969 and was owned by a group of local investors who believed in a concept of creating a regional dry cleaning company very similar to the One Hour Martinizing franchises that had been successful in the 1960's. But the company almost didn't make it. In the mid 1970's polyester wash and wear was introduced and the impact was substantial. A Cleaner World went through a four year period where a number of stores were closed and only one new one was opened.

In 1981 Butch Bearden and Ray Edwards purchased A Cleaner World from the 27 stockholders. At that time there were 23 locations. Mr. Edwards took steps to improve employee morale and to develop a customer focused business plan. Once that plan was in place, A Cleaner World began to again add locations in the Triad area of North Carolina. In 1982 Chris Edwards joined the company and served in various capacities before moving to the corporate office in High Point.

In 1995 A Cleaner World embarked on an aggressive expansion project by expanding into the Triangle area of North Carolina. Today they have 9 locations in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area. Together Ray and Chris Edwards have worked to build A Cleaner World into the place it is today - a caring, customer focused, family owned, civic minded business. While Ray semi-retired in 1996 and Chris became President and COO, they continue to work together to ensure A Cleaner World lives up to its promise.
