Top 5 Reasons to Use Professional Dry Cleaning

I tend to get emotionally involved with my clothes.  I know it’s crazy, but I somehow remember important events and happenings based on what I am wearing.  For instance, a few months ago I pulled out a dress similar to this one because, well.......I really paid too much for it and hadn’t worn it in quite a while.  We were going out for Italian food, and I said to Matt, “The last time I wore this dress, we went to that awful 1980’s Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre.”  We then spent the next few minutes laughing and talking about how the food was not so great, the murder mystery part was goofy, and yet we had lots of fun that evening.

Now I have another story for that lovey dress; I wore it again, and this time I spilled spaghetti and meatballs all down the front of it.  On occasion I do listen to my own advice, so I simply scraped off the excess and left it alone.  It was late when we got home, so I just laid it across the dryer to deal with later.  Looking at it the next morning, I knew I had a big job ahead of me – the combination of tomato sauce along with the grease and oil in the meatballs and cheese would mean multiple attempts.  Or I could simply take it to A Cleaner World, which is what I did, and here’s why:
  1. Grocery store pre-treaters typically cannot break down oil-based stains but dry cleaning can break them down easily.  One of the biggest advantages of dry cleaning over laundering is its knack for dissolving grease and oil stains.
  2. Because dry cleaning uses fluids instead of water, natural fibers won’t swell so there is less of a risk for shrinkage, distortion, dulling of colors, and change in feel.
  3. Dry cleaning is much gentler than cleaning your clothes in a traditional washing machine, especially on delicate garments.  Clothes experience less wear and tear when being dry cleaned, keeping them looking newer, longer.
  4. There’s less risk than if you try to remove a stain yourself.  I cannot begin to tell you how many times I’ve ruined a garment thinking I could remove the stain only to pull the color from the fabric.   
  5. It’s easier.  Ironing is one of my least favorite tasks, and it seems I’m not alone.  I checked a number of sites and found relatively close numbers on all, stating that 70-76% of the population claims to hate ironing.  When I take my clothes to A Cleaner World, I drop them off dirty and then pick them up in impeccable condition – no more ironing!

  1. I was looking for an online college writing services and i accidentally found your site from my search results. As i can recall, i remember ruining a dress after machine washing it. I would never regard dry cleaning the same again. Thank you for that insightful advice.
