To dry clean or not to dry clean?

We advise our clients to dry clean in moderation or not at all. Sound gross?

Instead of dry cleaning because of general freshness problems, have your suit steamed or better yet, buy a small handheld steamer that will kill the bacteria that cause odor. We recommend you resort to dry cleaning only when you have a soiled fabric from food stains etc.

Dry cleaning is hard on fabric and will slowly decrease its lifespan. Steam is clean, safe and refreshes a suit in minutes. Always ask your cleaner what processes they use to clean. Some dry cleaners have migrated to a more efficient, less harsh cleaning method that is also better for the environment. Interview your cleaner and if they can't answer your questions, move on to the next one.
