Dropping off clothes for professional cleaning

How You Can Help 

Here are some tips that can help you get the most from your dry cleaning dollar:

  • Bring a garment in for professional cleaning as soon as possible after staining occurs. Stains and soil left too long can be impossible to remove and will shorten the life of your garment.
  • Discuss any stains with us.  Please be sure to point out light-colored or invisible spills, such as those from soft drinks, fruit juices, or white wine.
  • Allow perfumes, lotions, deodorants, antiperspirants, and other toiletries to dry before you get dressed since these products contain ingredients that affect some dyes.
  • Have matching pieces cleaned together, including bedspreads and drapes, so that any color loss will be uniform and pieces will still match.
  • Don’t press stained or soiled clothes. The heat may set some stains.
  • Protect your garments, especially silks, from excessive perspiration, because it can cause many dyes to discolor.
  • Protect your garments from long exposure to direct sunlight or artificial light. Keep in mind that even indoor lighting can affect some dyes.
