True Quality CleaningStraight talk about caring for fine garments & household textiles from an expert who calls it like it is. In plain English.

Restoring the white to your white and color combination garments

Gucci labelSo you have this shirt or blouse that you absolutely love. Let's say it has a dark colored body and sleeves with contrasting white collar and cuffs.

Except that it's been hanging at the back of your closet for a few months because the collar and cuffs -- once a bright white -- turned dingy and gray after paying a visit to your dry cleaner.

Ever wondered why your whites, creams and pastels turn dingy or gray?

Here's why...

Garments and household textiles should always be cleaned in dry cleaning fluid that's both continuously purified and continuously filtered. Every single drop. This way your garments and household textiles are cleaned in dry cleaning solvent or fluid that's absolutely crystal clear. As clear as bottled mountain spring water.

Continuous purification is much like boiling your tap water at home to obtain pure water; continuous filtration is much like filtering your tap water to remove any additional impurities.

Fact is, crystal clear, freshly purified and filtered dry cleaning fluid is your only guarantee against grayish and dingy whites, creams and pastels; dull and faded colors; and that all-to-familiar " dry cleaning solvent smell."

Unfortunately, very few ordinary cleaners both continuously purify every single drop of their dry cleaning solvent or fluid before and after each load, and continuously filter every single drop of their dry cleaning solvent or fluid during each load.

So soluble impurities, such as bacteria, residual dyes, food fats and body oils, accumulate in the dry cleaning solvent or fluid. And insoluble impurities, such as sand, skin flakes and hair, float around in the dry cleaning solvent or fluid.

These soluble impurities are then absorbed by the fibers of your garments and household textiles during the dry cleaning "wash" cycle. In particular, natural fibers, such as silk, wool, linen and cotton, absorb these impurities like a sponge absorbs liquid.

Instead of your cleaner both continuously purifying and continuously filtering his dry cleaning solvent or fluid, your garments and household textiles are functioning as your cleaner's "cleaning filter."

In effect, your garments and household textiles are being cleaned in "dirty dry cleaning solvent." It's just like washing your clothes at home and reusing the same dirty water over and over again.

So what to do?

Before you consign that shirt or blouse to the charity bin, consider having your garment restored by a true quality cleaner. Most garments with contrasting white and color combinations can be restored to their original splendor.

Here's an example of a Gucci silk blouse with a white and black geometric design and contrasting white cotton collar and cuffs that we just restored to it's original brightness.
