The “big four” stain types

Dry Cleaning

When it comes to stains, there are four general categories which require unique removal processes at the dry cleaners:

  • Grease and Oil — Cooking oils, hair products, and motor oil are some of the most stubborn stains.
  • Tannins — These common stains come from everyday drinks like wine, coffee, and tea.
  • Proteins — Dairy, meat, blood, and even sweat can cause discoloration in fabrics.
  • Dye Stains — These include a variety of items, from mustard to ink to grass.
