Top 10 Ways You Can Help Us Care For Your Clothes...
1. Have your clothes cleaned frequently. This actually prolongs their life...as soil and stains left too long are sometimes impossible to
remove and will cause abrasion of the fabric and can wear out the fibers.

2. Discuss ANY stains with your dry cleaner. Be sure to point out light-colored or invisible spills from soft drinks or white wine. These
stains contain sugar, which can carmelize and turn brown with the heat of drying unless flushed out before dry cleaning.

3. Bring your garments in for professional care as soon as possible after staining occurs.

4. Avoid letting your garments come in contact with products containing alcohol such as perfumes, hair spray, colognes and lotions.
When these products dry they are invisible and will leave spots after being cleaned. Always apply these products before getting
dressed and allow them to dry.

5. Allow deodorants and antiperspirants to dry before dressing.

6. Protect your clothing from excessive perspiration. The chloride salts in perspiration can weaken delicate fabrics and can cause dyes to
change colors.

7. Protect your clothing from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or strong artificial light. Bright colors, especially blues and greens
tend to oxidize and fade.

8. NEVER iron stained or soiled clothing...this only sets the stain.

9. Do not store your clothing in plastic bags. Fabrics, especially natural ones like cotton and linen need to breathe. Keep the paper
shoulder covers on clothing if you are storing them for the season. This will keep dust and damaging light off your garment.

10. If possible, try to have matching garments cleaned together. This applies to clothing as well as to household items such as
bedspreads, pillow shams and draperies.
