She decided not to steam clothes. Alley and her husband, Hebert, own and operate Su- perior Cleaners, a dry cleaning shop in Superior. At noon Monday, it was 94 degrees inside the shop even without the steam press equipment running. "One morning earlier this summer, on a similar day, I started the steam equipment and it was 100 degrees by 6 a.m.," Alley said. "Hebert and I have tried to work here when it was over a 100 degrees, but we both felt sick. The heat drains one's energy." When the highs started being con- sistently in the upper 90s, Alley moved to a summer schedule. She rose early and opened the shop around 4 a.m., shut down steam equipment around noon and on the hottest days closed shop in the afternoon. She commonly works with steam, pressing garments for customers with temperatures in the mid to upper 90s in the pressing area. "I talked with a solvent delivery man earlier this week and he said most cleaners are closing in the afternoon because of the summer heat. "People come in and say 'Don't you have air conditioning?'" Alley continued, "I guess they don't realize that most dry cleaners do not run air conditioners. Occasionally they air condition the part where they wait on customers, but even in the big cities the steam pressing areas are not air condi- tioned. "Air conditioning the customer ser- vice part of our shop would only in- crease our labor costs, because I'd not be able to see the front counter as I work." Summer is generally an intensive work season for a dry cleaning facility: winter clothing, school uniforms and wedding apparel must be cleaned. "The work has slowed with the sum- mer. Lots of older folks aren't getting out as much because of the heat so I've been able to keep up." Alley said. Alleys have chosen not to air condi- tion their home. "We are able to sleep with wet linens covering us and fans. It is too much of an adjustment to live in air conditioning and work in the heat," she concluded. I1.
