Travel tips for the unwrinkled

Traveling this summer and want to keep your clothes from wrinkling? Let us deliver your shirts folded, which makes packing a breeze and they won’t wrinkle during the trip. For the rest of your items, use the plastic from your cleaning to separate folds. The plastic reduces fabric friction and prevents wrinkling in your suitcase. The plastic is handy for dirty or wet clothes on your return trip.

Leave your sports stains to the pros

Summer sports are a great way for kids and adults alike to get out and enjoy the sun. But what happens when you get grass stains, mud splatters and tears to your favorite jersey? Washing at home can set the stains and permanently ruin your sports gear. Lucky for your gear, we are waiting at home plate to knock those stains out of the park. Our professional cleaning is made to get those nasty stains out before they set so bring them to us after the big game, so you will be ready to hit the field for that next fun game. We can mend little tears and rips or professionally apply patches for your team.

Avoid the summertime closet cram

Summer is a great time to organize your closet. Move bulky items to the back so you can easily find your summer must-have fashions. But remember, color coordinating is key –dark items will lose dye naturally as they sit in your closet, and lighter items next to them end up with the stain. It is called “fume fading” and it is the culprit for light coats looking discolored when you take them out of the closet after summer storage. Put your clothes in color order, dark to light, in order to prevent them from fume fade damage, and use dry cleaning bags to cover dark items for added protection until it is time to wear them again.

Confused by care instructions?

Are you finding more and more items that say “hand wash, dry flat, cool iron only” and are not sure if you can care for them properly? The manufacturer is only required to put one process for cleaning on the label, and many are concerned about putting “dry clean” on their label. When in doubt, bring them to us for cleaning – our process is safe even for the most delicate of items, and it will make your favorite garments last longer than hand washing at home. Our professional facility is equipped with the proper steam and pressing machines to keep them looking great without causing scorch marks or shiny damage from a home iron.
