Why you should never ignore a stain.

Stains and soil left too long can be impossible to remove. Studies by the Dry cleaning & Laundry Institute show that after aging for only one week, 20% of stains cannot be removed satisfactorily. After three weeks, this increases to 47%. If staining occurs, bring it to us as soon as possible.

Don’t press stained or soiled clothes. Heat is another factor that makes stains more difficult to remove. Don’t iron stained or soiled clothes trying to get just one more wearing out of them. Ironing dirty clothes will set stains and drive soil deeper into the fabric. Not good.

Bring a stained garment to us as soon as possible to prevent the stains from setting.Show us the location of clothing stains and tell us any removal procedures you may have attempted before turning to us for help.

Never put a garment away for the season without it being cleaned. Every year we see garments that weren’t dirty “when I put it away for summer,” only to be taken out in the fall full of little holes and stains. The smallest unseen food crumb or spillage invites insect damage.
