Dry cleaning is any cleaning process for clothing and textiles using an organic solvent other than water. Special solvents and soaps are used so as not to harm fabrics and dyes that will not withstand the effects of ordinary soap and water. This process is gentler than regular washing because it reduces the possibility of shrinkage and/or color loss.
Some buttons are made out of materials that can’t withstand normal dry-cleaning or washing procedures. Our policy is to identify and remove these types of buttons before cleaning. Over time, laundered shirt buttons may crack due to the heat & pressure used to properly press the shirt. When this happens, we replace them.
The most important thing to do is to clean your clothes before storing them. Moths are attracted to any food or stains that are left on your clothes. Moths are also attracted to natural fibers such as wool, silk, etc., so we suggest that they be stored in mothproof bags.
Some spots adhere to the fabric or dye in such a way that the spot removal process needed to break down the stain may also break down the fabric or dye, thereby ruining the garment. When we discover this type of stain, our policy is to stop attempting to remove it before any damage to the garment occurs.
Dry cleaning is similar to washing but without the water. Dry cleaned garments are cleaned in a machine that looks like a giant washer with one major difference – instead of using water or anything water based, a liquid is used that does not contain any water.
Three things cause shrinkage in garments, heat, mechanical action, and moisture. By removing moisture from the cleaning process and replacing it with a liquid that contains no water, garments like your wool pants can now be safely cleaned without shrinkage. Materials like wool and silk generally have to be dry cleaned. By eliminating moisture from the cleaning process we are able to get your garments clean while extending their life all without shrinking anything.
After your items are cleaned, they are pressed. Pressing is what takes the wrinkles out of your garments.
