How To Make The Most From Your Dry Cleaner

December 15th, 2015

For most of us taking care of our clothes is a vital role. For some it resembles how the world perceives us and that is an integral part of who we are. This is why most of us prefer to let a service handle most of our dry cleaning needs rather than making a bigger mess than the one already there. But here are a few tips on how to make the most of any dry cleaner.
First up, when you stain your clothes, food, paint or whatever, try to get the stain out as soon as possible. You obviously won’t be able to rush to a dry cleaner then and there, so try to get the stain out with water but take it to the cleaner as soon as you can. The faster you get the garment there, the better chance there is of getting the stain out with minimum damage. After all there is only so much even the best laundry service can do as well, so it’s on you as well if you want your clothes back to new.
The best laundry services are a bit on the expensive side, however, that is the price you pay for keeping your clothes as good as new. However, some cleaners are willing to offer discounts for loyal customers. So if you have a regular cleaner, then try and talk to them and try to work up some discount for your loyalty. Most places will appreciate the regular loads and will be willing to help you out. Most dry cleaners have off peaks seasons. This is the best time for you to take your big ticket items such as winter coats and those rarely worn suits in need of a good cleaning. Chances are that they will be in need of the business and will be more than happy to offer discounts for all the work sent their way.
Contrary to popular belief not all garments need to be dry cleaned. But there are some which cannot go near the washing machine. So next time before you take all your clothes to the cleaner, take a wet cotton swab and dab an unseen area of your garment. If the color gets on to the swab then take it to the cleaners otherwise you can save the money and wash it at home.
Any dry cleaning service will know a thing or two about keeping your clothes in good condition. That is why you pay them. However these little tips will not only save a bit at the cleaner but it will also help them keep your clothes clean.
