    Whenever Mom had to have something dry cleaned, she would place an orange cardboard placard in the living room window. It was like Commissioner Gordon using the bat signal to call Batman.
    An employee of the dry cleaning business constantly drove his van in neighborhoods to drop off clothes and would stop by any house that had a placard up. Seeing one, he knew someone was in need of the special dry cleaning superpower of the business.
