The colder months are rolling in. As the temperature begins to drop here are a few tips and considerations to help you roll with the seasons.
Cleaning Out the Closet
After a long slumber, your winter clothes will need to be awakened and taken out of storage. Hopefully you didn’t have any unwanted visitors over the summer months but it’s a good idea to check your garments for signs of insect damage.
Insects such as crickets, ants, moths, beetles, and cockroaches can feed on clothes that were not cleaned properly before storing. Look for small holes, worn areas, and discolored lines on the portions of the garment that had spills or stains that were never removed.
Moth ball odor can be difficult to remove. Try airing the garments by hanging them outside in the shade. If this does not completely remove the odor, cleaning the garments may help.
Winter Cleaning Tips
When it comes to cleaning, the first and easiest way to ensure the best cleaning is to follow the manufacturer’s care label instructions. Many of your garments may be hand or machine washable. Minimize agitation to prevent matting and pilling of napped fabrics. We have pressing equipment that can reshape knits back to their original size if something gets out of shape. Follow recommended drying temperatures. Other materials such as wool, fur, and leather require professional care due to special cleaning and pressing procedures. Make sure to point out any known stains when you send them our way.
Many stains caused by cosmetics, oily foods, and beverages will get best results when pre-treated. Many festive dishes, unfortunately, contain ingredients that are not easily removed using household stain removal techniques and may require solvent-based treatments. Let us know if you are not sure what the best procedure would be.
Thank you for the opportunity to care for your wardrobe.
Always friendly and always diverse. Love going there and seeing them
Jason who helped me is the man! Needed clothes in two days and he made it happen. On top of being efficient, his welcoming personality makes for a solid customer experience.
I’ll be back more often!
Best dry cleaner I’ve been to. Staff was extremely friendly and personable. I had two jerseys covered in years of blood, food, dirt, and whatever else that now look brand new. They were super quick and cheap. They have a parking lot as well.
I pulled one of my long time favorite satin dresses out of my closet to wear for my birthday. Unbeknownst to me, there was a 10 year old white wine stain on it! I brought the dress in, sheepishly, and asked if anything could be done. I got a call a few days later and apparently dry cleaning it wasn’t cutting it so they asked for my permission to wet clean it. To my joy, they were able to take the stain out and the dress looks brand new! I’m extremely happy with the communication and professionalism. I highly recommend coming here!
