Out, out darned spot

Our dry cleaning service would be incomplete without our expert spotters.  They know how to treat stains without damaging the fabric, the color or the texture. Home cleaning might work on jeans or a golf shirt, but bring your valued garments to us for prompt treatment when there’s a spill.  Silk just can’t be treated with home products. Can’t. Wool pills with friction, so blot the stain –don’t rub— before bringing it to us. Ink stains are the worst: sometimes we can’t even lift the ink. Real Simple magazine recommends sprinkling salt on the stain, then wipe it up, repeat and apply vodka.  To the spot. Blot and repeat.  Then bring it to us and we’ll see if we can remove what’s left.
