Tip Top Dry Cleaners opened their first shop in Gray Street Adelaide, 1953 by brothers Antone and Les Nemer. These two brothers pioneered same-day service when most other dry cleaners were a 7-day-turnaround service. Tip Top is firmly established as South Australia's leading dry cleaners with nine stores instantly recognisable by the logo out the front.Laundry Museum
The museum is the result of a small collection of laundry items that the Tip Top Dry Cleaners' company has brought together. It is in effect a history of the laundry industry which begins with a washing machine know as "Black Rose" which was first built late last century.
There is also a large collection of irons beginning with those that were used in the 1700's by heating them in the fire - through to coal, gas and steam powered models. There are also trouser presses, washing boards, hat blocks and paraphernalia of the dry cleaning industry at 195 Richmond Road, Richmond.
