"Dry Clean Only" - What's All The Fuss About?
Many people are entirely accustomed to the routine of throwing all of their laundry into the washer and then the dryer, before perhaps waving an iron in the general direction of the pile.
My regular customers know the many benefits of our dry cleaning and laundry services, but we get new customers all the time who purchased something before realizing that the tag said those special words:
"Dry clean only"The words are on the tag for a reason and should be heeded. Manufacturers know that if you’re paying the money for a high quality item, you want it to remain in good shape. Certain fabrics will lose their color or shape if exposed to water and detergents, and trying to clean these items the “easy way” will often ruin the garment completely. Even if it is still wearable, you will have dramatically reduced the life of what was potentially a special and expensive item of clothing.
Of course, most things that say “dry clean only” don’t need to be cleaned every time you wear it. To preserve the life of your clothing, keep an eye on these items and bring them in to be cleaned when they need to be refreshed – to both the eyes and nose. You don’t want your clothing to smell bad or look wilted! And dirt embedded in clothing will actually shorten its useful life.
So why dry clean?
