Cleaning Tips

How to make your clothing last longer

We know the quality of your clothes is important to you, so knowing the cleaning tips and tricks to keep your clothes lasting longer is paramount!

 

Firstly, professional cleaning involves many different operations, all performed by skilled Pilgrim Dry Cleaners and Launderers staff and designed to give your garments a fresh and clean appearance.

 

Our procedures involve:
  • Checking the labels for adequate care instructions and fiber content.
  • Classifying the garment according to fabric type, color, degree of soiling, and cleaning process: dry-cleaning, wet-cleaning or laundering.
  • Removing spots and stains using special equipment, special stain removal agents, and water.
  • Reapplying any sizing, water repellent, and other finishes when necessary and possible.
  • Professional pressing equipment is then used to restore its original shape and appearance.
  • Replacing missing or damaged buttons and performing minor repairs whenever possible.
  • Packaging the garment neatly in a protective wrapping.
Get the most from your cleaning dollar:
  • Bring a garment in for professional cleaning as soon as possible after staining occurs. Stains and soil left too long can be impossible to remove and will shorten the life of your garment.
  • Discuss any stains with your cleaner. Be especially sure to point out light-colored or invisible spills, such as those from soft drinks, fruit juices or white wine.
  • Allow perfumes, lotions, deodorants, antiperspirants, and other toiletries to dry before you get dressed since these products can contain ingredients that affect dyes.
  • Protect garments from excessive perspiration, especially silks because it can cause many dyes to discolor.
  • Have matching pieces cleaned together, including bedspreads and drapes so that any possible color loss will be uniform and pieces will still match.
  • Protect your garments from prolonged exposure to direct sunlight or strong artificial light. Keep in mind that even indoor lightning can affect some dyes.
  • Don’t press stained or soiled clothes. The heat may set some stains.
  • Plastic bags are provided to protect your garments until you get home. Once there, it is best to store your garments uncovered or in fabric garment bags.
