Your clothes are valuable, and have usually cost you money, so keeping them in good condition is important. Here are a few tips on maintaining their quality:

Use wooden or thicker plastic hangars to hang your clothing
Use wooden or thicker plastic hangars to hang your clothing – avoid wire hangers because they tend to crease pants and tops
If you have spilled something on your clothes
you should often treat the stains as soon as possible and not just leave them for us. Once a stain dries, it’s harder to remove. But don’t just use soap or detergent and expect it to come clean. Follow the manufacturer’s label, and then bring your clothes to us to finish cleaning them. The following are the three stains that we see the most often:

  • Dirty collar or cuff – use a small amount of a mild hair shampoo
  • Ink stains – apply some rubbing alcohol on the stain
  • Deodorant stains – rub some white vinegar and water onto the stain, then rinse it off 30 minutes later

Items that are labeled 'Dry Clean Only' usually mean that
Items that are labeled ‘Dry Clean Only’ usually mean that, and even hand washing might not produce good results – so bring these to us and we’ll take care of them for you
When preparing your clothes for pick up or drop off
When preparing your clothes for pick up or drop off, make certain you don’t have any delicates or dry cleaning items mixed in with the regular laundry pile
Check all your pockets before you bring your clothes to us
Check all your pockets before you bring your clothes to us – we’ll do this but it’s best if you remove your tissues and loose change
Take off all your removable belts and accessories before giving us your clothes
Take off all your removable belts and accessories before giving us your clothes – we don’t try to lose anything but sometimes it can be separated from your clothes
Bedding sheets and comforters
Bedding sheets and comforters should be brought to us in a separate bag than your clothing, as we charge differently for it
Bringing your laundry in a sturdy, waterproof bag
Bringing your laundry in a sturdy, waterproof bag will prevent it from getting dirtier along the route or wet during the rainy season
Keep a laundry bag to collect your laundry
Keep a laundry bag to collect your laundry separate from the clothes you’re planning to wear – this makes it easier to remember every piece of clothing you want to bring to us
