BBC Learning English: The English We Speak – Take to the cleaners: when we say we’re going to ‘take someone to the cleaners’, we mean we’re going to take a lot of money from them.

Rob’s bought a new washing machine and instead of cleaning his best shirt, it has actually made it dirtier. He’s very angry and wants to sue the company that made the machine. He meets Helen in a laundrette and she has some advice for him. Listen to the programme to find out what it is.
