Cleaning garments and gowns with trim and embellishments

Jewelled jacketOrdinary cleaners hate garments with trim or embellishments. So they follow a multitude of strategies:

  • Most reject them out of hand, telling you that the garment is not cleanable.
     
  • Some warn you of the "risks", make you sign a waiver of liability and, when the garment is reduced to unwearable status, wave the signed release like a flag blowing in the wind.
     
  • Others, unwilling to expose their lack of skill and experience, and knowing that they have a 50:50 chance of "getting it right", go ahead and experiment on them.
     
  • A few "clean" them by reducing the time on the wash cycle of their drycleaning machine to a fraction of the required time and then tell you that "they've been cleaned." When, in fact, they haven't been properly cleaned.Jewelled vest
     
  • Many just spot clean them, spray them with a "freshening" product (say hello to Fabreze), steam them and then tell you that "they've been cleaned". When, in fact, they haven't been cleaned at all.

Why do ordinary cleaners resort to these approaches? Because they don't have the skills and experience necessary to expertly, safely and effectively clean garments and gowns with trims and embellishments.

By contrast, 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.

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 drycleaning 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.
