Dry Cleaning Costs Set Your Teeth on Edge? Tips from the Girlfriend Corner

Tips That Save You Money and Time

Tips you can use.
Let’s face it. Some things are just meant to be dry cleaned.

Everyday I see people cringe with regret when they see that dreaded Dry Clean Only label. They sigh and put the desired item back on the rack. These are tips I use time at reFresh.

Dry cleaning is an expensive and inconvenient necessity, it’s true. But, it isn’t necessary every time.

I make use of two different products here at the boutique Dryel and Woolite Dryer Sheets. The Dryel Starter Kit  is about $10 at Walmart.com and includes the dryer bag, four cleaning cloths and one booster spray.

I think the steaming bag is a critical part of the process, but I favor the scent of the WooliteSo, I start with the Dryel Kit then switch to using the Dryel booster spray and bag with the Woolite Dryer Sheets

 

 

 

 

Tips to Protect Your Dry Cleanable Clothing

  • Act Fast – Don’t let stains and spills sit. Take care of them as soon as possible. Test your fabric in a hidden area to see if it is color safe. You’ll know it is safe when no color comes off on a clean, damp, white cloth. If your fabric is color safe, clean up any spills with a damp cloth before putting the garment away to be cleaned.
  • Deodorant – Deodorant is a big problem with dry cleanables and many fabrics. Avoid white stick deodorants on your evening dresses as they will leave a white, waxy film that is nearly impossible to remove without professional dry cleaning. I’ve found that Secret spray deodorant does a great job for controlling wetness, which of itself can stain your gowns. It is clear and won’t mark your clothing. Be aware that some spray deodorants will discolor your clothing over time, leaving an unpleasant yellow stain that renders them unsaleable. So, if you notice that yellow staining on your clothing, look to a change of deodorant. I’ve had some success in removing white deodorant stains with a wet cloth and gentle rubbing prior to dry cleaning in the dryer.
