Clothing Care

 

Fresh Dry Cleaned WhitesWhether it’s a new or well-worn, treasured garment, everyone hates to stain their clothing. We understand, and will always use our best efforts to make stains go away. Sometimes it’s pretty easy – sometimes not. Either way, we have the professional expertise to do the job.

Successful stain removal depends largely on the nature of the stain, the type of fabric, and the colorfastness of the dye. Some fabrics and dyes simply will not withstand the use of cleaning or stain removal agents. Some stains, like ink and dried paint for example, can be impossible to remove.

“Miracle” stain removers – guaranteed to remove stains – are pretty much just that. It would be a miracle if they did the job.

Help Us Help You
Bring a stained garment to us as soon as possible to prevent the stain from setting. Show us the location of stains and tell us any removal procedures you may have attempted before turning to us for help.

Clothing Storage
Never put a garment away for the season without it being cleaned. Every year we see garments stored dirty only to find the garments full of little holes and stains after taking them out of storage. The smallest unseen food crumb or spillage invites insect damage.

Ironing
Don’t iron stained or soiled clothes in an attempt to get just one more wearing out of them. Ironing dirty clothes will set stains and drive soil deeper into the fabric. Not good.

If You Must Do Something Before We Get It
Never rub a stain. Blot the stained area. This may help remove some of the staining substance while avoiding damage to the fabric.
