Check your labels!

Check your labels!

Before you buy clothing, read the care label attached to it and any hang tags or care instructions on garment packaging. The Federal Trade Commission requires apparel manufacturers to attach permanent labels to garments supplying instructions for drycleaning or laundering. Look for this label when you are considering a purchase. The care necessary to keep a garment clean and attractive may be important in deciding whether to buy it in the first place.

Most garments that are labeled with washing instructions are also drycleanable, but some may contain dyes or trim that are not resistant to drycleaning solvent. If you have a difficult stain on such a garment, or if you want the convenience or the enhanced appearance of professional cleaning and finishing, discuss the article with your drycleaner. According to the amended federal care label rule of January 1984, no warning about an alternative cleaning method is required, so your cleaner may ask you to sign a release before drycleaning a garment with washing instructions only.

Following on from yesterdays post, this is why your dry cleaning whites, remain so white!

 Here at DeLuxe Dry Cleaners New Orleans, we thought we would further explain why our dry cleaning fluid always remains crystal clear, and why our customers shirts always remain white!

 Here at DeLuxe cleaners, we have a 2 bath system that stop our customers clothes from discoloring. Our 2 bath system of cleaning is unique in a world of mediocre dry cleaning. We process all our dry clean clothes by first cleaning in a bath of mineral spirits and 3.5% soap. Then the clothes are extracted and a clean rinse bath is pumped in to make up the second bath. Each bath continuously pumps mineral spirits into the machine during its bath and is filtered by two canisters which contain papered filters. The rinse mineral spirits is distilled every four days to maintain purity. This is the best dry cleaning available with the result that your clothes are fully cleaned and then finely rinsed.

  Most dry cleaners have opted for a one bath system of 1% soap. This is much cheaper and much less effective. While this may save money, it lacks the cleaning ability of a stronger soap and this method doesn’t give a clear, clean rinse. The result of poor cleaning is; grey looking white clothes and odors.

  We are proud to be one of the few remaining cleaners with a two bath system. The results are clear. Your clothes are bright and fresh, even after repeated dry cleaning.
