Dry cleaners need their customers to prepare clothing items a little before drop off to make the entire cleaning process smoother and faster:
- Schedule a drop off time as soon as possible after a substance stains a garment to prevent the stain from hardening into the fabric’s fibers.
- Remove loose items like coins, tissues, lipstick, gloss, candy, gum, plastic wrappers, pens, and electronics from any pockets.
- Note the location of stains with pins. If you know the substance that caused a specific stain, write it down on a piece of paper, and pin it prominently to the front of the item.
- Place all pieces in individual zippered dry cleaning or laundry bags to prevent garment loss.
Dry cleaners often offer additional services, such as general laundry cleaning, repairs related to missing buttons, broken zippers and tears, size alterations, and vintage material preservation. If you need these services, always create a “To Do” list to give the dry cleaner.
