Keeping Your Business Immaculate

When we installed a suggestion box in the entryway of our business, I was amazed to see how many customers responded. After we started going through the suggestions, we realized that there was one request that we kept seeing--the need for a cleaner store. We decided to make a few changes to keep our place cleaner, including hiring a professional cleaning service. The results were incredible. Customers started to comment on how clean our place was, instead of the need for dramatic changes. We also noticed a boost in our sales because customers felt more comfortable in our store.

Get The Best Results: Helpful Tips For Dry Cleaning Your Clothes

by Lee Porter

If you're not using a dry cleaning service, now's the time to make some changes to your laundry routine. You might not realize this, but most clothing can be dry cleaned. One of the great things about dry cleaning your laundry is that your garments come out clean and neatly pressed. Best of all, you don't need to do any of the work. However, you do need to take steps to ensure the best outcome. If this will be your first trip to the dry cleaners, read the list provided below. You'll find four tips that will help you make the most of your dry cleaning experience. 

Follow Cleaning Instructions

If you're getting ready to head to the dry cleaners with your laundry, take the time to read the labels. As stated earlier, most clothing can be dry cleaned. However, there are some fabrics that should never be dry cleaned. This is especially true for clothing made from some synthetic fibers and for clothing that contains polyurethane, PVC, or plastic. Dry cleaning this type of material could cause serious damage to your clothing. Instead, this type of material should be machine-washed or hand-washed at home. 

Don't Pre-Treat the Clothing

If you've discovered a few stains on your clothing, don't try to handle the pre-treating on your own. First, you could be using the wrong type of stain remover for the type of stain you're dealing with. Second, the stain remover could react with the dry cleaning chemicals. Instead, take your stained clothing to the dry cleaners as quickly as possible. When you drop off your clothing, be sure to point out all of the stains that need to be treated. 

Be Clear With the Requests

If you're going to start using a dry cleaning service, you want to be clear with the cleaning requests. Most dry cleaners will provide you with additional services, but you need to provide instructions when you drop off your clothing. For instance, let the staff know if you want them to use extra starch on your dress shirts or if you don't want them to use any starch at all. It's also important that you let them know about loose buttons. The dry cleaning staff can take steps to safeguard the buttons. 

Don't Postpone the Drop-Off

If you've decided to use a dry cleaning service, don't delay the drop-off. You might think it's best to wait until you have a full load of laundry, but that's not necessarily the case. Waiting too long can allow stains and odors to set into the fibers. To avoid that, plan frequent trips to the dry cleaners.
