10. Sending Your Garments to a Dry
Cleaners saves you time!
Who's got the time these days to hand wash each individual garment, hang it to
dry, hope it didn't shrink, pill, or change texture and then hand iron it?
9. Dry Cleaning and Pressing Give Your Clothes Life And Body!
The entire package or dry cleaning, pressing and packaging helps to give your
item the best look! For higher quality clothes always look for a dry cleaner
that has a superior, high quality service so that your fragile, designer and
favorite items are returned to you looking better than ever!
8. After Dry Cleaning Comes The Expert Pressing, Steaming and Finishing!
Dry Cleaners have special pressing machines for different fabrics, i.e. silk,
cotton, wool, etc. There are also different machines for different garments,
i.e. shirts, pants, sweaters, etc. Pressing is truly an art form and takes a
lot of patience and experience to press a garment correctly.
7. Dry Cleaning Garments In Cycles Of Low Agitation Can Prevent Pilling.
Pilling are fibers from the garment that form into little balls at points where
there are high agitation, i.e. underarms, seat area, between legs, etc. If you
have any pilling, expert dry cleaners can also attempt to remove the pilling
without damaging your clothes.
6. By Dry Cleaning Soiled Garments Regularly, You Can Prevent Them From
Yellowing Or Oxidizing In The Areas They Were Soiled.
Honestly, why would you risk ruining your clothes with over-the-counter “all
purpose” stain removal products or trying “home remedies” if the stain can most
likely be removed very easily by going to a professional dry cleaner?
5. Dry Cleaning Allows The Garment To Retain Its Luminosity And
A professional and expert dry cleaner can also try to salvage a piece that has
grown very dull and faded and give it a youthful vibrancy again. (Key word here
is “professional and expert”-Not all dry cleaners know how to do this well-Not
to fear! Hour Glass Cleaners is here!)
4. Dry Cleaning Prevents Your Clothes From Shrinking.
Natural Fibers, i.e. silk and wool, respond exceptionally well to dry cleaning.
If these fibers are cleaned in a conventional manner at home, there is a very
high chance of shrinkage, texture change, and perhaps dullness of color.
Shrinkage occurs when a garment undergoes high mechanical action after being
washed in water and then dried for an extended period of time.
3. Dry Cleaning Removes Grease Stains, Among Other Stains, Visible and
Invisible To The Eye. The dry side cleaning to garment care can dissolve grease
and oil stains that water just cannot.
2. Dry Cleaning Prolongs The Wear Life Of Your Clothes!
By caring for your garments through professional expertise and technology, you
will be able to wear your clothes much longer than if you were to attempt to
clean or refresh your clothes at home.
1. Keeping You Looking Great!
Dressing in professional dry cleaned clothing (business suits, shirts, blouses
or casual shorts and polo shirts) makes you feel better and look better!
If you think about it dry cleaning will actually save you time, money and
frustration trying to do all of the work yourself using “home cleaning
remedies.” You will be saving and extending the life of your clothes, you will
save on buying “at home remedies” that may not work, and you will save the time
it would have taken you to clean your clothing yourself. Let's face it, your
time is just way more valuable. You should bring all of your clothes (pants,
shirts, sweaters, jackets…) to a professional dry cleaner!
