Cleaning your winter clothes and accessories correctly before you pack them away is essential.  You’ve been wearing your coats and boots in the snow and sludge, so you’ll need to sanitize and clean them before boxing them up to avoid mold and mildew!  There’s nothing worse than unpacking your clothes as the temperatures start to drop and realizing that you need to replace a lot of them because it wasn’t cared for properly before being packed away.  If you aren’t sure what exactly should be dry-cleaned, we’ve made a list. Sweaters, leather, and suede clothing, UGGs boots, Canada Goose jackets, and coats should all be dry cleaned at the end of the season.

As you shake the cobwebs out of your spring wardrobe, you may feel that some things look dingy or wrinkled.  Bringing them into Oak Neck so that we can clean them properly will extend their lives and make them look brand new!  T-shirts and golf shirts can appear to have lost a lot of life after being folded away for months.  We can crisp up your collars and reshape tees to make them look brand new.  

Baseball caps and light hats can also be dry-cleaned!  They can be hard to store in a way that keeps their shape.  We can also get out any stains or scuffs before you take them out on the town.  Raincoats should also be properly maintained so that they last for years to come with no discoloration or damage.  Another thing most people think should only be washed at home short.  It simply isn’t the case!  A good dry cleaning will cut down on wrinkles, enhance pleats, and make the fit of your shorts look great! 

Oak Neck Cleaners is also offering free garment storage for your off-season clothing!  After we dry clean them, we will ensure that they are moth-proof and stored properly to help save space in your home!  Get in touch with us by phone at (631) 422-4339.  We are conveniently located at 945-4 Montauk Highway in West Islip, New York!
