Sustain your wardrobe.

The added wearability you get from professional cleaning is actually a benefit to the environment. Every extra wearing you get from a garment reduces the need to buy a new one and keeps it out of the rag heap or landfill. Our gentle cleaning and laundry procedures add life and comfort to your wardrobe, preventing shrinking and fading and extending the value of your investment.

Hats and gloves.

Keeping warm is a lot more pleasant when winter wear items are clean and fresh. If you chose to home-launder, a few timely tips from Real Simple: Wash knit caps and gloves like sweaters; machine-wash knits on delicate cycle in cold water. Spot-clean structured newsboy and baseball caps to keep brims in shape. Handwash leather trimmed gloves. Or bring everything to the experts. We’re skilled at even the stickiest stains

Laundry myths.

Add more detergent for cleaner clothes?  Wrong, when there’s too much to rinse out you get dingy results and may damage your machine. Hotter water is better?  In fact, today’s laundry products are formulate to work as well with cold water. Hot water can actually set stains, and always costs more.

Cardigans, again.

The age-old classic sweater is a versatile, essential part of the well-dressed man’s wardrobe. A cross between a vest and sweater, it’s ideal for layered comfort in cooler temperatures and gives you a quick transition from casual to dressier. Wear a t-shirt under for a weekend or snazz it up with a dress shirt and tie for Sunday dinner at the inlaws. Cardigans can go almost anywhere — adding color, texture, and always comfort.

Pet laundry?

You can safely home launder pet bed covers, collars and leashes using the gentle cycle, cold water and an all-purpose laundry detergent. Throw in grimy washable toys. Use small loads with large-load settings to flush out hair and dirt. Tumble dry on lowest setting or air dry.

Chocolate stains.

Chocolate contains cocoa’s dark tannins and cocoa butter’s oiliness. On washable items, remove the grease with undiluted laundry detergent dabbed on the stain, let sit 5 minutes and rinse with warm water. Now apply color-safe bleach to the remaining water-soluble tannin stains. We can help with washable and with dry-clean only items, our stain experts can get the chocolate out of almost everything.
