Ask Stu: Your questions answered

Q.

Ask Stu"I took a dress with some beading at the top to dry cleaner and they told me that they can't clean it without ruining the bead work. They said that the last time they cleaned something similar it ruined the garment and melted the beads. They asked me to sign a waiver and I told them no I don't want my new dress ruined! What should I do?"

Silver sequened topSuggestion: you should try a true quality cleaner.

A true quality cleaner should be able to clean almost any garment or gown with trim or embellishments. Expertly. Safely. And effectively. Whether it's beads, sequins or rhinestones; plastic, vinyl or rubber; paint, glitter or silkscreen; appliques or embroidery; suede, leather or fur; multi-media comprising fabrics and skins; feathers; high-tech fabrics. Or a St. John Knit blazer heavily embellished with pailettes and/or rhinestones.

First, their core business -- caring for bespoke, made-to-measure, designer, high fashion and couture garments and gowns -- has exposed them to many unusual and wonderful garments and gowns with trim and embellishments. This exposure has allowed them to become highly skilled in cleaning and finishing these garments and gowns -- garments and gowns that would be routinely rejected as "uncleanable" or "extremely risky" by the vast majority of ordinary cleaners.

Second, they'll treat all your garments and gowns with extraordinary care and clean them in dry cleaning fluid that's extremely gentle, non-dye bleeding, dermatologically friendly and odorless, such as siloxane.

You can trust a true quality cleaner with garments and gowns that have trims and embellishments -- garments and gowns that would be routinely rejected as "uncleanable" or "extremely risky" by the vast majority of ordinary cleaners.
