Mission Statement 
​& Our History

“Our goal is to create a united dry cleaning industry, to educate and to inform our members and their consumers.”  


The Southern California Cleaners Association (SoCal Cleaners Association), formerly Greater Los Angeles Dry Cleaners Association (GLADCA), is the oldest local dry cleaners association in the State of California. Founded in the early 60s, GLADCA strived to bring the latest education and a network among dry cleaners in the Los Angeles area. Members included not only dry cleaners from all of the Southern California area but also from the Allied Trade industries.  


At one time, there were 7 local cleaners associations throughout the State. Over the years, the Associations disbanded leaving only 2: Greater Los Angeles Dry Cleaners Association and Peninsula Dry Cleaners Association. The PDCA covers Northern California. In 2007, the Board of Directors voted to broaden our educational outreach to the entire Southern California, hence the name, Southern California Cleaners Association. Our members now reach from San Diego to Central California.
