All of our 25 Pilgrim Cleaners locations have FREE collar stays on the counters for our customers! Many people have seen these plastic cards and may have wondered what they were for and how to properly use them. The purpose of collar stays is to insert them in the collar of your shirt to help hold the shape and keep your collar propped up and looking great all day. No more frumpy collar blues once your starch wears out! It is also a great alternative for those of you who prefer to go starch-free because of the itchy feeling it may give you around your neckline. Please watch our video to learn how to properly insert collar stays into the pockets of your shirt collar. Keep in mind that not all shirt collars come with pockets underneath the collar for collar stays! Please leave any questions for us to answer in the comments below.

Suits For Soldiers

suits-for-soldiers

 

Pilgrim Cleaners is proud to be a donor of Suits For Soldiers. We were able to donate a car full of suits, dress shirts, pants, and more to help men and women returning from the armed forces reenter the workforce. The event to distribute the garments takes place in early December and it was a huge success. We look forward to participating in the event again next year

Thanksgiving is a great time to not only be thankful for what you have, but also to give back to those that are less fortunate. Pilgrim Cleaners is honoring the memory of our very generous founder, Don Rosen, with another year of Donate For Don. Each of our employees are given a $10 bill with instructions to perform a small act of kindness with the money. We look forward to hearing how they helped others and we also encourage you to share this post and participate in the tradition with us as well. Happiness is contagious, so let’s spread some around this holiday!

A lot of people do every load of laundry the same. They add detergent into the wash and fabric softener or dryer sheets. While there are benefits of using fabric softener such as: reduced static, softer feeling fabrics, and an added scent if desired; many people may not know that fabric softener is actually harmful to certain fabrics.

 

Fabrics To Avoid Using Fabric Softener On:

 

Athletic Fabrics That Have Been Treated Using “Wicking” Technology:
Many athletic fabrics created by brands such as: Lululemon, Under Armour, Nike, & Athleta use a technology called “wicking” to absorb sweat from your body. These fabrics are typically made from polyester-blended fabrics that have a chemical treatment to allow the perspiration to be pushed through the fabrics surface and evaporate. Using fabric softeners on these types of fabrics will leave them coated and stop the “wicking” process from working to absorb sweat.

 

Microfiber & Microsuede Fabrics:
The appeal of microfiber & microsuede fabrics is their ability to resist stains, provide durability & softness. Using a fabric softener on these materials can eliminate the electric static that makes microfiber effective against stains.

 

Egyptian Cotton & Terry Cloth:
These fabrics may be the most common fabrics people misuse fabric softener with. Your instinct is to always want soft towels and sheets, however, if they are made of ultra soft materials, using fabric softener will reduce the ability for these fabrics to absorb liquids: which is an important use for towels made of these fabrics.

 

Flame-Retardant Fabrics:
Fabrics made to be fire-retardant should be dry cleaned at your local Pilgrim Cleaners, or laundered according to the care labels. Avoid using any fabric softeners on these fabrics, as it will reduce their ability to be flame resistant.
