baby


Baby Items

Baby items, such as bumpers, crib linens, baptism gowns, and some clothes need to be dry cleaned to keep them looking new.

For the safety of your baby, you should choose green dry cleaning to keep dangerous chemicals such as perchloroethylene (PERC) out of your baby’s home.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency have identified PERC as a probable cause of cancer. You do not want chemicals lingering in your baby’s bumper, crib linens, and clothes.

bed


Bedding

The main reason a dry cleaning label is typically found on bedspreads is because of color and fiber filling. Special care is needed because fiber filling may bunch up in a washer forming clumps in the batting as well as pulling and breaking threads. 

Color-fastness in bedspreads is another concern. In some bedspreads, dyes are not stable and a washing machine could case bleeding of color and/or fading or splotching.

Bedspreads should be cleaned at the same time with like bedding pieces. We suggest that matching bed skirts and shams be dry cleaned together. This way any color changes, however minimal, will be uniform.

leather

leather & suede

Suedes and leathers require special expertise for proper care.  Suedes and leathers need to be reconditioned periodically to ensure that suedes don’t fade and that surface wear doesn’t develop on finished leathers due to dryness. Smooth leathers in good condition can be cleaned and re-conditioned and refinish making them look like new again.

In many cases, even a badly stained leather or suede garment can be saved, but each one is different. There are many variables when you factor in the cause of the stain with the different types of leather. Most manufacturers recommend that leather garments be cleaned using professional leather cleaning methods. This ensures that the stain will be treated properly and that the suppleness, color, and finish of the garment are maintained and restored.

purse


Purses & Fine Shoes

There’s a common notion that a leather and/or suede purse must be washable because it’s a “natural” product. Yes, when the leather is on the animal, it is in its natural state. After that, nature takes a back seat to elements such as: fashion, style, color and the processing that is involved in the manufacturing of suede and leather.

linen


French Linens

When cleaning antique, french and vintage linens, it is very important to assess each piece before you clean it. Some old fabrics are strong and can survive a hand wash or spin in the washing machine. However, most are more fragile and require a gentle touch. Our green dry cleaning process is a gentle process that many use for their delicate and heirloom antique, french and vintage linens.

Historically, linen and flax were used in french linens as well as those linens from Belgium and other European countries. With the fine attention to quality and detail french and vintage lines possess, it is important to select the proper cleaning process and in many cases the green dry cleaning process is perfect for cleaning your most cherished linens.

BALL GOWNS

Ball gowns are made from a wide variety of fabrics. Your ball gown may be satin, taffeta, chiffon, organza, brocade, and lace, and accented with delicate trims, such as beads, crystals, sequins, embroidery, silk flowers, and appliqué, all of which require very very special care.

BEDSPREADS

The main reason a dry cleaning label is typically found on bedspreads is because of color and fiber filling. Unfortunately many assume it is because of size and feel that the washing machine is an option for cleaning their bedspread.

Special care is needed because fiber filling may bunch up in a washer forming clumps in the batting as well as pulling and breaking threads. The typical outcome is your bedspread shrinking. If at all possible bring your bedspread cleaning instructions to us. We highly recommend that our customers save the bedspread cleaning instructions included on original packaging in addition to attached care instructions sewn into the bedspread.

Color-fastness in bedspreads is another concern. In some bedspreads dyes are not stable and a washing machine could case bleeding of color and/or fading or splotching.

Bedspreads should be cleaned at the same time with like bedding pieces. We suggest that matching bed skirts and shams be dry cleaned together. This way any color changes however minimal will be uniform.

BOW TIE CLEANING

Bow ties diversify your wardrobe and complete a polished look.  Bow ties are made of rich fabrics such as silk.  Silk bow ties require special care to maintain their shape and sheen.  If you do get food or ink on your bow tie, resist the urge to rub the bow tie briskly with water or a napkin. This can chafe the bow tie and damage the color and fabric.

Dry cleaning your bow ties will remove stains and odors without compromising them.  Our green dry cleaning solvents are effective, yet gentle on your bow ties.  All bow ties are especially treated for food  stains, green stains, and drink stains. Each bow tie is cleaned in its own mesh bag in order to maintain the delicate shape.

How much do we care?  We will package your bridal gown using the same technique that museum conservators use to extend the lifetime of their textiles for 200 years or more.

Our bridal gown preservation process has three steps:  

  1. Cleaning the gown: This requires careful hand-spotting, gentle cleaning, and a thorough rinse.

  2. Packaging the gown: Conservators believe textiles should be stored in a breathable, protected environment.  Our packaging process utilizes archival materials, providing protective layers, which buffer the gown against excessive humidity and environmental contaminants.

  3. Monitoring the gown: Museum conservators check their textiles every two years.  We suggest every 2-3 years, open the box, examine the storage materials and your bridal gown. We will offer your advice and suggestions on how to monitor your bridal gown.
