5 Misconceptions About Dry Cleaning
Wednesday, December 23, 2020

1. Dry Cleaners Don’t Use Liquids

Even though it is called “dry cleaning,” the process is not actually dry. It’s called that because there is an absence of water. However, the cleaning solvent is still liquid. 

2. Use Club Soda Instead of Dry Cleaning

Club soda may be touted as a miracle hack for treating serious clothing stains at home, but it is in no way a substitute for your local dry cleaner. In many cases, it can often make a stain worse. If you encounter a stain, gently dab the excess away and bring the item in to the cleaner as soon as possible. Let them know what happened and they will be able to help.

3. Store Your Clothes in the Bag from the Cleaners

The bag is just to protect your clothes on the trip back to your closet, whether you’re picking them up or having them delivered. Your clothes will come back clean and dry, but the bag may trap residual heat, making the air humid and hostile towards certain garments.The bags are not meant for long-term storage.

4. Only Clothes Labeled “Dry Clean Only” Should Go to The Cleaners

Any garment that you want to last and maintain its quality should be taken to your cleaners. 

5. Wait as Long as Possible Before Taking Your Clothes to The Dry Cleaners

This misconception stems from the idea that dry cleaning harms your clothes and that it should not be done as frequently as you do your own washing at home. This assumption is false. Waiting to take your clothes in means wearing them multiple times, which can compound stains and smells that latch onto your clothes, making them more difficult to get out, even at the hands of an expert cleaner. Don’t wait to take your clothes to the cleaners. Trust Appearance Plus Cleaners to get out your stains and keep your garments looking new and smelling clean and fresh.
