The Do’s and Don’ts of Dry Cleaning

November 12, 2021

For many of us, dry cleaning seems like a foreign thought when we’ve grown up with traditional washers and dryers. However, dry cleaning in West Palm Beach is a very useful cleaning method under the right circumstances. With Go Green Dry Cleaners, never have any questions about dry cleaning again!

Beware of Home Dry Cleaning Kits 

Know the Fabric

Not everyone knows that certain fabrics can be dry cleaned safely while others can be ruined. A professional dry cleaner has the knowledge, experience, and training to spot the different fabrics, saving you from damaged wardrobes. The bottom line, know your fabrics. 

Never dry clean fabrics that contain: 

  • Plastic 
  • PVC 
  • Polyurethane 

Tops and bottoms that contain these materials are prone to deteriorating when dry cleaned. 

Some fabrics perform poorly when introduced to water. The following materials we suggest you only dry clean: 

  • Silk
  • Suede 
  • Wool 
  • Rayon 
  • Leather 
  • Linen 
  • Denim  

Your Clothes May Shrink

Sometimes, mistakes can be easily made, resulting in clothes you can no longer wear. We’ve heard several new customers complain that their favorite shirts shrunk so much they no longer fit.  

Fortunately, this is not an issue with our team. We take our time with each article of clothing brought to us to ensure that no harm comes to them. Since clothing keeps getting more expensive, why blow your budget because of a simple dry cleaning mistake? Instead, drop your clothing off with us, and pick them up in even better condition! 

Avoid Uncomfortable Smells

There’s nothing better for many folks than taking their work clothes off after a long, tough day. Shedding a day’s worth of sweat and odor feels like such a relief. Imagine how demoralizing it would be to find that your clean clothes still had a pungent smell? 

Unfortunately, this is the case far too often with DIY kits and at no fault to the users. Fowl smells linger due to the ineffectiveness of the kits in freshening up garments while cleaning them.  While we can’t speak for other dry cleaners, our service always returns clothes with a scent akin to a new car smell.  

What better way to start the morning off than by slipping into a fresh, clean shirt? 

Stain Removal: Dry Vs. Wet Wash

Suppose you spilled oil or grease on your favorite suit. You may be asking what you need to do. While you should always act swiftly, avoid submerging the garment in water; this goes for all fabrics that encounter these substances. 

Mixing water and oil on any fabric will tarnish it, explaining why washing it right after the oil change didn’t remove the stain.  

Dry cleaners remove stains by dissolving the residue, which water cannot. Our process dismantles the stain at its roots, allowing us to return your shirt in peak condition. Our customers are always surprised by the robustness of our stain removal as opposed to traditional methods.  

For the best results possible, when you drop off your stained garments, tell us: 

  • What stained your clothes 
  • Where the stains are 
  • How long ago it happened 

Visit us the next time you stain your shirt. You’ll be glad you did.
