Milt & Edie’s Drycleaners is a family owned and operated business attributing their successes to four generations of family involvement and many long-term employees. Together, they are committed to maintaining the highest standards, quality services and a welcoming atmosphere.
The business is now run by Michael and Beth Shader, the namesake’s daughter and son-in-law. The couple has been involved in the cleaning business for decades and they strive to uphold the founders legacy and longevity.
With a steadfast commitment to excellence, Michael is always in search of new and better cleaning methods, environmentally sound and safe products, meeting the challenges of keeping the business open 365 days a year, and always maintaining his sense of humor. To improve efficiency, Michael and his team have updated operational systems. Express bags are available for customers to drop off their cleaning with zero wait time. When items are ready, Milt & Edie’s will send the customer a text. Customers can also text that they are on their way to pick up their order and it will be ready and waiting for them.

Like many businesses, the cleaning industry was greatly affected by the pandemic. Milt & Edie’s remained open throughout this unprecedented time and did everything possible to maintain a healthy and safe environment for their employees, customers and community.
As residents of Toluca Lake, Michael and Beth are thrilled that their company has become more than a dry cleaning facility, it is also a community gathering spot. They continue to be very involved in Burbank and Toluca Lake; sponsoring many causes and also hosting events, including pet adoptions and clothing donations.
