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

So your dry cleaner couldn’t help you?

Every week we receive a number of garments rejected by local dry cleaners as "uncleanable".

We also receive many garments from new clients that can only be tactfully described as "improperly processed by a dry cleaner."

Case in point: A St. John Caviar cotton and spandex blouse with ...

  • black dye transfer around the waist (probably from a leather belt)
  • lipstick stains on the front
  • makeup stains around the inside of the collar
  • rust stains at the buttonholes of french cuffs
  • dirty lines at the fold of both french cuffs
  • a white color that can best be described as "dishwater dingy"
  • pressing that looked like someone had slept in it the night before.

So what's a client to do?

She brought it to RAVE FabriCARE.

And the results?

A cotton and spandex blouse worthy of a David Copperfield magic act:

  • black dye transfer gone
  • red lipstick gone
  • makeup stains around the collar gone
  • rust marks on the french cuffs gone
  • dingy lines in the french cuff gone.

What's more the dingy white had been transformed to brilliant white. And the "slept" in look was now as soft and smooth as a newborn's rear end.
