QDoes frequent dry cleaning shorten the life of a garment?

To the contrary, frequent cleaning prolongs the life of a garment. Not only do stains set with age, making the garment unwearable, but ground-in dirt and soil act as an abrasive, like sandpaper, causing rapid wear of fibers. Also, insects are attracted to soiled clothes and will cause further damage.

QIs dry cleaning really performed “dry”?

In spite of the name, dry cleaning is not completely dry. Fluids are used in the dry cleaning process. Dry cleaning is not the answer to all soil and stain removal problems. Sometimes, stains become permanently embedded in the fiber, or fabrics cannot withstand normal cleaning and stain removal procedures, or decorative trim is not compatible with dry cleaning solvent. It is important that consumers as well as dry cleaners read all care labels and follow the instructions.

QWhat equipment is used in dry cleaning?

There are various makes/models of dry cleaning machines. Despite the differences, all dry cleaning machines work on the same principle.

    A dry cleaning machine consists of four basic components:

  • Holding or base tank
  • Pump
  • Filter
  • Cylinder or wheel

The holding tank holds the dry cleaning solvent. A pump is used to circulate the solvent through the machine during the cleaning process. Filters are used to trap solid impurities. A cylinder or wheel is where the garments are placed to be cleaned. The cylinder has ribs to help lift and drop the garments. A lot of effort goes into the process, and there are many skilled technicians involved in caring for your garments.

QWhy was my shirt dry cleaned instead of being laundered?

Certain types of stains come out better when the garment is dry cleaned. Also, some fabrics can’t take the heat of the pressing form used to dry and press a laundered shirt.

Questions are great, but only if you know the answers.
