Dry Cleaning Facts
Drycleaning Prolongs Garment Life
Does drycleaning shorten the life of your clothes? On the contrary; not only do stains set in with age making clothing unwearable, but ground-in dirt and soil act as an abrasive, causing rapid wear of fibres. Many independent USA and European studies have confirmed that regular professional drycleaning has no negative effect on fabrics.
All Drycleaners Are Not the Same
Most drycleaners use a strong cleaning solvent called Perc (Perchloroethylene). This can be very aggressive on fabrics, dyes and trimmings. It may also have adverse environmental and health effects. Today’s progressive drycleaners use technologies which are both fabric-friendly and environmentally acceptable.
Spot & Stain Removal
Stain removal is a balancing act between the possibilities offered by time- chemistry-equipment-and the resistance and stability of colours and fibres. It therefore follows that in this area there is no substitute for knowledge acquired through experience.
Not all Drycleaners Use Fabric Conditioners
Fabric conditioners should be used by drycleaners to bring a bright, crisp “just purchased” look to garments. Most drycleaners do not use conditioning additives because they’re considered too expensive. Caring cleaners, however, consider fabric conditioners to be an essential part of the drycleaning process.
Machine Pressing or Hand Ironing?
Fine clothing demands special attention in pressing. Some drycleaners press entirely by machine – it’s obviously faster and cheaper. Caring cleaners, however, complete the pressing process with light hand ironing.
You Get The Level of Drycleaning You Pay For
If a price seems too good to be true, it probably is. For a dry cleaner – taking shortcuts is easy. Consumers should be more concerned about value for money. Quality cleaning definitely prolongs the life of the fibre and enhances appearance.
