When many people look at the tag that is on their clothes and see the “dry clean only” instructions, they begin to think that they are now going to have to pay an extremely high price for cleaning, and that it is now going to be incredibly inconvenient. They may regret buying a garment that needs dry cleaning, or think that they will now simply avoid cleaning it at all. These feelings are unfounded, as long as you have a local dry cleaner that is honest and considerate. Our business understands and knows that your time is valuable, so we go out of our way to make sure that you are provided with dry cleaning services that are not only affordable but also do not require you to take time out of your day. It is important to the clothing itself to dry clean it regularly, or it will be permanently ruined by the oils in your skin and the dirt and dust that settles on it. The clothes that you purchase that are made from more delicate fibers will require to be treated with more care than home washing can provide, and as a result will be stained or damaged if they are not professionally cleaned on a regular basis. We suggest dry cleaning any garment that does not directly contact your skin every other wearing, and anything that touches your skin in between each time you wear it. Coats and other garments that are worn over other clothes can be cleaned less frequently, maybe twice a year if they are not exposed to dirt. The main reason that you want to make sure that you regularly clean your fine clothing is that it is more expensive than casual clothes, and designed to look and wear a certain way. If you do not dry clean it, then it is going to begin to look and feel old and less sharp than it was designed to look, and if you go too long it will not be able to be restored even by dry cleaning. The oils in your skin can be quite damaging to the clothes.
Many people will think that they may be able to get away with not using a dry cleaning service, and possibly can just put the clothes in the washing machine at home to clean them. What you must understand is that this may get the dirt out of the clothes, but the fabrics were not designed to stand up to agitation or water that is used in the process. The sharp and crisp lines of the clothing will become more wrinkled and looser looking, due to the fact that the cleaning process is breaking down the structure of the fibers. The answer to the question is that if the manufacturer gives the “dry clean only” instruction, they feel that home washing will destroy the clothing, so it should be avoided at all costs. Use our free pickup and delivery service, and our low prices to regularly keep those garments marked “dry clean only” looking great.
