We all know you can clean your sheets at home safely. But for expensive linens with high thread counts, duvets, shams, multi-colored and complex bedding, and any bedding that is not cotton or linen; a dry cleaner is the best option.
We can hear you asking “Why?!” Well the answer is because the biggest issues you will face attempting to wash them at home are; color change, color bleeding, shrinkage, the feel of the fabric may change, and it may also seal the stains in so we will be unable to remove the fully!
If you’re not feeling fully convinced, please read the following warnings!
1.Bleaching bed linens can cause a yellowing of the fabric and weaken it’s fibers therefore, don’t bleach.
2.Hang drying sheets is best, but if you insist on using a dryer, put it on low!
3.Fabric softeners break down the fibers of fabrics, so don’t use them on your linens.
Hopefully, we’ve answered all your questions! But if you still have any, please feel free to contact us and we’ll be more than glad to assist you further 🙂
Drycleaning is the use of solvents to remove soil and stains from fabric. It is called “drycleaning” because the solvents contain little or no water and do not penetrate the fibers as water does. Drycleaning solvent is not harmful to any fabric, and drycleaning is the only safe method for cleaning many types of garments.
Natural fibers such as wools and silks will shrink and perhaps lose their color when washed in water, but will dryclean beautifully. Cottons and linens, unless they are preshrunk in manufacture, will also shrink in home laundering. Drycleaning is particularly effective in removing greasy, oily stains from synthetic fibers, which have an affinity for oils.
But the professional drycleaner provides more than just drycleaning. This service also includes professional removal of problem stains that will not come out with simple drycleaning. It also includes professional pressing, careful packaging, and inspections at every step along the way to make sure that all stains have been attended to and the item has been properly pressed and finished.
