Why Should You Bring Household Items to a Dry Cleaner?

We all come in contact with fabrics around our house every day. From the moment you wake up and throw off your comforter to the evening when you snuggle up with your favorite throw.

These everyday fabrics are what are considered “household items.”

While some household items, like fabric napkins or table cloths, can easily be washed in a washing machine, some require more special attention. Delicate or vintage fabrics, hand-sewn pieces and bulky comforters or sleeping bags can all benefit from a trip to the dry cleaner.

Vintage and Delicate Pieces

You may not use a tablecloth or quilt on a daily basis but in some families these are treasured items, passed down to help celebrate and recognize when the family comes together. These fragile items are full of family memories.

If any of your household items have been shared for generations, you want to do your best to preserve them and continue to enjoy them for generations to come. The safest way to clean these items is trusting a pro who does cleaning every day.

Dry cleaners know how to care for special fabrics and have unique tools and products to help remove stains without causing too much friction. 

If any of your household items are vintage or made with a delicate fabric, don’t risk throwing them in the washing machine!

Bulky Items

One of the biggest reasons you may want to bring your household items to a professional is because of their size.

Many household items are bulky and household washing machines are simply not equipped to give them the cleaning they deserve. It’s possible that even trying to clean a bulky item in your household machine may cause damage to your washer! 

Your local dry cleaner has the equipment and capacity to get the job done right. We can make sure even your bulkiest items are fully cleaned, dried and ready for your next use.
