Prepare Your Leathers and Suedes for The Fall Season

Although it’s still summer, it is never too early to begin preparing for the fall season. Leather and suedes are some of the most popular clothing worn in the fall. They are light weight and practical for everyday wear. However, taking care of them is very important for the longevity of your leather and suedes.

If you’ve stored your leathers and suedes yourself, it may be best to take them to a professional dry cleaner. They can assess if any repairs need to be done. Leathers and suedes can suffer from minor scratches and discoloration due to snow and rain from the last time you’ve worn them. Also, if you didn’t take them to the dry cleaners before storing them yourself, they most certainly need to be dry cleaned before you wear them.

Some dry cleaners offer free pick-up and delivery around their area so please make sure to ask about this service when calling.

Caring for Your Patio Furniture Cushions

The weather has certainly gotten warmer over these past few weeks which means that inviting your friends and guests to your house only to stay indoors, isn’t going to cut it anymore. They want to have fun, outside – more specifically, in your backyard. Whether you need to prepare your yard before they come or need to clean up after a party, the most important thing that needs to be taken cared of are your patio furniture cushions.

If you’ve stored your patio furniture cushions to protect them from the elements during the winter, then you need to ensure they are ready to be protected from the elements throughout the summer. One of the most common issues are mold and mildew stains. These need to be taken cared of right away and the idea of using bleach on your luxury cushions just isn’t worth the risk. You’ll need a professional dry cleaner who can come to your location and take care of them for you. They’ll know how to use the proper cleaning solutions and equipment to ensure clean and protected furniture without any damaging them.

If you’ve already hosted your party, then regular vacuuming and simple wiping are good measures for general protection. However, if you see any stains, it is highly recommended that you call a professional dry cleaner to come and take care of your patio furniture cushions. Determining which cleaning solution is best for your cushions, temperature of the water you’ll mix the cleaning solution in, wiping or blotting – all should be handled by a professional who can determine everything with a quick glance.

If you’re the type who doesn’t like public beaches and prefer to sun bathe in the comfort of your own backyard, then oil stains from suncreens and lotions need to be taken cared of.

Although this is inevitable, a professional dry cleaner can help extend the life of your cushions for several years so you don’t have to worry about buying new furniture for the next couple of years.

Patio furniture are a symbol of relaxation and having a good time. Therefore, leave the stress of cleaning them to a professional dry cleaner.

5 Tips to Keep Your Wedding Dress in Pristine Condition

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. Family and friends come from many locations to see you and your significant other get married. Everything from the venue to the flowers need to be perfect, including your wedding dress.

Not all wedding dresses are the same. Each wedding dress matches the personality of its beautiful bride. The bodice, train, and fabric vary in many different shapes, styles, and sizes. However, finding a cleaner and tailor that have the expertise required to keep your wedding dress in pristine condition can be a challenge, and searching, “tailor near me” or “dry-cleaners near me” might not necessarily be the best solution.

Your wedding dress is your most treasured item of clothing, so here are some important tips you should consider when searching for a tailor or dry-cleaner.

  1. What type of chemicals does the dry-cleaner use?

Some dry-cleaners use chemicals that are harmful to certain types of fabric. A solvent called “perc” is sometimes used by dry-cleaners. Perc can be harmful to your wedding dress and can ruin the fabric. Make sure the company you choose to dry-clean your dress uses other solvents and chemicals.

 

  1. Choose an experienced tailor.

Finding a tailor who has professional skills and experience is important. Choose someone who knows about all different types of fabric and can neatly fix lace or other wedding dress materials. Searching “tailor near me” can bring up a lot of options, but do your research to make sure the service you choose is experienced and professional.

 

  1. In-house cleaning?

Ask your dry-cleaners if they do the cleaning themselves or if they send the clothes out to a different company. If the dress is being sent out, then you will most likely be paying added costs which could be avoided by using in-house cleaners.

 

  1. Ask about preserving your dress.

If you want to preserve your wedding dress after your big day, ask your dry-cleaners about the preservation process. What chemicals are they using? Make sure the storage box and fibers used are acid-free, this will keep your dress preserved for a longer amount of time.

 

  1. Check for other reviews and portfolios.

Ask the dry-cleaners if they have any references or portfolios for you to look at—this way you can see the quality of their work. You can even check for company reviews to see how the business really treats customer clothing. This can help you choose the best company to preserve the beautiful souvenir of your big day.

As you remember these tips, you’ll be better equipped to choose the best dry-cleaner for your dress’s particular needs, and your wedding day memories will be beautifully preserved.

How to Store Your Leathers Properly

Leather jackets are a very expensive part of everyone’s wardrobe. Mishandling your leathers can damage them over time. Therefore, prevention is key to a long-lasting leather jacket. The following are a few tips to help keep your leathers in crisp, like-new condition:

  • Keep your leather jackets clean! Any spots or stains should be treated as soon as possible. A reliable dry cleaner can help with existing stains.
  • To retain the shape of your leather jacket, it is recommended you purchase a solid hanger with good shoulder support.
  • Wrap your leathers in acid-free garment bags. These bags are breathable and are meant to protect your leathers from elements harmful to your jacket. Most professional dry cleaners will supply you with one after they clean leather jackets.
  • Long exposure to light can discolor your leather jackets. Storing them in dark cabinets or closets is recommended.

One of the most difficult things to control is the level of humidity in your house or apartment. Humidity can damage your leathers if they are exposed to it. There is just no permanent way of reducing humidity levels to an environment suitable to storing your leathers. Dry cleaners usually do a good job of storing your leathers and some will even offer to do it for free if you clean them at their location. Some will even apply a leather protectant or conditioner to ensure its durability.

No matter how you store your leathers, prevention is key to a life-long leather jacket.
