We’ll be closed on Labor day (next Monday) and we just wanted to remind y’all that when applying Sun Screen, it’s vital to wait an adequate amount of time to allow it to dry before we put on your clothing! Otherwise, this often leads to stains and discoloration in your bathing suits and favorite summer outfits.
So, the best advice we can give you to avoid getting the stains is to make sure that what you’ve applied is dry before putting on any swimwear or your favorite clothing! But if you follow these instructions, and still get stains or discoloration in your clothes (not swimwear) bring the item(s) to us here at DeLuxe Dry Cleaners New Orleans as soon as your can!
Have you ever pulled out your favorite sweater and see that it has a pull or snag in it? Well its important to know that depending on the fabric, it can completely ruin the piece if not addressed! It is caused when something rough or sharp pulls at the fibers of your garment, these fibers are being stretched or removed from their normal fabric pattern. With woven knits, these pulls can actually be repaired invisibly, but make sure not to cut or pull them further, as that can create a hole.
When washing your sweaters, its incredibly important to pay attention to the tag on the garments. For finer sweaters like cashmere, angora or alpaca; they will all probably need to be dry cleaned. For those that are wool, cotton, linen, or acrylic; they should be hand washed and dried flat.
There’s a lot that can go wrong when trying to maintain your sweaters, so hopefully these tips help in keeping them looking their best!
