The process behind a dry cleaner’s counter is a mystery to many. This causes the rumor spread of wrong information about dry cleaning. The risky part of these misconceptions can actually ruin your dresses or other clothes. To help shield your wardrobe, do not become the victim of these misconceptions ever.
Dry Cleaners do not Use Liquids
It is not called ‘dry cleaning’ because no liquid is used in the entire process, rather it is called so due to the absence of water in the entire process. There is use of liquid solvents in every dry cleaning process. And the solvent is mostly petroleum-based called “perchloroethylene” that is used by most of the dry cleaners and more commonly known as ‘Perc.’ It is popular among most cleaners, but we at Howdy Cleaners do not prefer to use that human carcinogen, evident from various researches, instead we use our green cleaning to clean your clothes.
Store Your Clothes for Longer in Bags
This is not done at our place at Howdy Cleaners. The bags are just to save your fabric on the trip back to your doorstep, whether you are picking your clothes or getting them delivered. Our bags are not intended for long-term storage. Long-term storage can be done by some poor service providers and the bag may trap remaining heat from clothes and make the air humid towards certain garments. So, we suggest you choose the best for your clothes.
Use Club Soda as It is Cheaper!
Club soda might be publicized as a wonder hack for treating stubborn clothing stains at home, but it cannot be a substitute for your dry cleaners in any way. In many cases, we have seen that it can often make a stubborn stain worse, many of our clients have faced it already. When you have a stain, gently remove the surplus away and hand over the item to the best dry cleaner as soon as possible. Explain them honestly to know the issue and what happened, so they will be able to find the best possible solution.
Taking Your Fabric to the Cleaners is Not a Good Idea
This misconception originates from the idea that the process of dry cleaning actually harms your fabric and that it should not be adopted as often as you do your routine laundry at home. This is a false assumption and delaying the time in between trips could be a mistake at high cost. This can make stains resistant as well as it can produce foul smell into your clothes, making the things difficult to deal out, even for the expert hands. You should not wait to bring your clothes to the experts.
Only Fabric Labeled “Dry Clean Only” Should be Handed over to The Dry Cleaners
No, this is not like that. Any fabric that you want to make durable and maintain in its original quality should be handed over to your cleaners.
There are many knowledge bits that originate from illogical assumptions. Do not fall into believing those false assumptions, otherwise your wardrobe could suffer. Trust our experts at Howdy Cleaners to benefit your clothes and keep you looking fresh and smart.
