JANUARY GARMENT CARE TIPS:
What is dry cleaning?
Dry cleaning uses fluids to remove soil and stains from fabric. In fact, the term “dry cleaning” is misleading, it is called dry cleaning because the fluid contains no water and does not penetrate the fibers like water does.
Does frequent dry cleaning shorten the life of a garment?
On the contrary, frequent dry cleaning prolongs the life of a garment. Not only do stains set with age, making the garment unwearable, but ground in dirt and soil act as an abrasive, like sandpaper, causing rapid wear of fibers. Also, insects are attracted to soiled clothes and will cause further damage.
What other steps can I take to care for my clothes?
Avoid having your fabrics come in contact with perfumes, lotions, hair spray, and hair gel. Allow deodorants and antiperspirants to dry before you dress. These substances dry invisible, but over time will stain the garment and weaken the fibers. also, protect your clothing from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or strong artificial light. Bright colors tend to oxidize and fade over time.
What should I do about stains?
Bring the item in for professional care as soon as possible. Do not use over the counter stain treatments on garments that are “dry clean only”. Most over the counter treatments are not intended for garments that must be dry cleaned and will cause irreversible fabric damage. Also, point out any light colored or invisible spills from soft drinks or white wine. These stains contain sugar, that will turn brown in the dry cleaning process if not pretreated.
