Do’s & Don’ts of Dry Cleaning
If you want to hear some really funny stories, you need to ask a dry cleaner about some of their stories. They are hysterical. For example, we know a dry cleaner who had to clean stains from a fight out of a wedding dress. Needless to say, the couple–and their families– ended up in jail before the reception ended.
One way to avoid being in a dry cleaner’s story is to understand the do’s and don’ts of dry cleaning. Here are some things to do–and not to do–when you are bringing your items to be dry cleaned.
What to Do and What Not to Do When You Need to Dry Clean
One of the most important things you can do is take care of your clothes. That way, you’ll be happy with the results of your dry cleaning. If you wear suits, you need to be sure you brush them regularly. If possible, you’ll want to brush them after each time you wear them. If you get a stain on your clothes, you need to take them to the dry cleaner immediately, along with the garment care tag. If you allow the stain to set, your dry cleaner may not be able to remove it. Be sure that you tell the dry cleaner what the stain is, so they can properly treat it.
If your garment is stained, don’t press it, because pressing your garment will allow the stain to set. Also, don’t try and remove the stain yourself with a home remedy. Need a formal gown or bridal gown cleaned after a formal occasion? Be sure that you have it cleaned before you store it. When you get it back, store it in a cool dry place.
