By far the most common question we get asked is “Did I do the right thing?”

For example, “I spilled wine on my blouse and put soda water on it…did I do the right thing?” Or “I got a pen mark on my shirt but I left it for you to work on…did I do the right thing?”

The answer is yes…if you did nothing and left the stain for us to handle.  Although there are a many supposed home remedies out there for stains, unless you really know what you are doing and have immediate access to the right materials, you are probably going to make things worse, or at least make it harder for us to remove the stain. Generally it will be better to bring the garment into us as soon as possible and we will take it from there!

Please send us your general dry cleaning and fabric care questions, and we will pick one to answer here each month.

We are conducting an ongoing survey which is still open for your comments.
