|Dear Dry Clean City Valued Customer,
HERE ARE 3 USEFUL GARMENT CARE TIPS:
Q. "How often should I dry clean my clothes?"
A. Freshly cleaned and pressed clothing looks great and helps make a good impression. With proper dry cleaning, your clothes will look better longer. How often you should dry clean really depends on how often you wear the garment and how well you take care of it.
Here are a few suggestions. If a garment is soiled or stained by perspiration, it should be dry cleaned as soon as possible. Light color garments and frequently worn clothes are especially susceptible to dirt and require more frequent cleaning. It is recommended to have all matching pieces such as suits cleaned at the same time. This prevents any color differences from occurring between the matching garments. Always clean your garments before storing away for the season.
It's also a good idea to give your clothes a "rest." Do not wear the same suit or sport coat two days in a row. By allowing time between wearings, fabric fibers can regain their memory. Use proper hangers and don't stuff your closets too full - provide enough room for your clothes to avoid wrinkling and benefit from air circulation.
Q. "Does frequent cleaning shorten the life of a garment?"
A. No. Actually, frequent cleaning prolongs the life of a garment. Not only do stains set with age, making a piece of clothing less attractive, but ground in dirt and soil act as an abrasive--just like sandpaper--causing rapid wear of fibers. Also, insects are attracted to soil and can cause further damage.
Q. "What can I do to help prevent moth damage to my clothing?"
A. The best way to prevent moth damage is to have clothes cleaned before storing them for the season. This will remove the traces of food, drink, cosmetics, etc that may attract moths, as well as kill any remaining larvae. Also, cedar chips, mothballs, and moth traps can be placed in the storage area to help repel moths. You also should clean your closet frequently so moths and carpet beetles can't nest & lay eggs. Moths don't like to be disturbed, so moving your clothes around in the closet when you clean also helps control these pests. You may also notice some of these insects on your clothing as you move things around so you can prevent further damage to your clothing.
