World Cup Clothing Advice!

World Cup Clothing Advice!

All of us here at DeLuxe Dry Cleaners New Orleans (except for our resident Englishman Alex) are still super excited for the rest of the World Cup, especially now that the USA is on the verge of qualifying out of the “Group of Death!” If you watched the Ghana vs. USA game at a bar, without fail, beer and sweat ended up on your shirt!

We recommend not trying to remove a Beer/Wine/Alcoholic beverage stain yourselves as this could set it in permanently or reduce the chance of us removing it completely. We advise that you leave the spots alone and bring the garment to us at the first available opportunity to let our experts deal with it appropriately.

It’s more than likely that you happened to got a little too excited, and and noticed some pretty big sweat stains in the armpit area during the course of the game! The good news is that we can pre-treat and hopefully remove the Beer stain. The bad news is that if you have some particularly prominent body odor, it may require a longer process. However, we are able to remove Body Odor from clothing with our Ozoning process that we spoke about in a previous post on the blog 🙂

Will dry cleaning really get rid of body odor in clothes during the dry cleaning process?

Will dry cleaning really get rid of body odor in clothes during the dry cleaning process?

The answer is yes!

We often get new clients coming to us complaining that their other dry cleaners were unable get rid of body odor from their clothes, sometimes even adding a ‘kerosene like’ chemical smell to them. This strong chemical smell is actually from PERC which is used in the dry cleaning process to clean clothes. Sometimes, depending on the fabric of the garment, PERC does not evaporate fully, and remnants of it are left in the clothes, which creates a combined body odor and chemical smell (which is not a nice smell!)

To remove both of those smells, we can either Ozone or Dry Clean your clothes. Ozoning is a simple yet is highly efficient method used after a Fire to remove the smoke smell. Important for the impending humid and hot summer months in New Orleans, you need to know that DeLuxe Dry Cleaners has a reliable service that will leave your clothes truly odorless (no B.O. or PERC).
