Preparing Clothes for Dry Cleaning

Do you want the best results from your dry cleaner? Take a few minutes to prepare your clothes before bringing to the dry cleaner. A little preparation before sending your laundry to the dry cleaner helps make sure you get satisfactory results.  Here are a few tips for preparing your clothes for the dry cleaner.

Read the Care Tags

Make sure you send the right clothes to the cleaner. Their tags will tell you whether or not an item can be dry cleaned. If the label says “machine wash or dry clean” or “dry clean only,” you’re good to go. Notice whether items have any additional special instructions for handling, and separate them from the rest so the dry cleaner can easily identify clothing that requires special care.

Empty the Pockets

We all accumulate things in our pockets: pens, gum, makeup, and even small toys.  Things like lipstick, gum, and ink pens can damage clothes if you leave them in the pockets. Cleaners do check clothes before cleaning, but it’s easy to miss something. Be kind to your dry cleaner and empty the pockets.

Mark Stains

Make sure that stains can be easily identified.  Put a bit of masking tape around or on the stain so the cleaners can find it easily. You can also mark it with a safety pin and a piece of paper.  Be sure to let the cleaners know what caused the stain so they can choose the appropriate method for that type of stain.

Get the item to the dry cleaners as soon as possible after the stain occurred.

Check for Worn or Weak Areas

Let your dry cleaner know about any loose buttons, broken zippers, or other wear and tear so they can take special care of those areas.

Preparing your clothes properly for the dry cleaner will  help you look your best in clean clothes!
