The modern world offers a cornucopia of fabrics and colors for formal and informal occasions. However, it costs to look great. Trips to the dry cleaner get expensive, yet perceptive consumers know how to look stylish while maintaining dollars in the wallet.
Before bringing your next load to the cleaners, un-bundle the following home cleaning suggestions.
Dry cleaning services perform small wonders, but for those of you who make a habit of getting clothes clean most likely do not think of replicating such feats at home. Yet, home kits help remove stains from blouses, silks, slacks, and more without the dreaded trip to the dry cleaners. A home clothing care system saves you money but takes time. We find it’s worth it though! Read instructions and clothing tags thoroughly before using your at-home cleaning solutions. Also, be sure to use name brands you can trust like Dryel.
Dryel is the best way to clean your special care clothes without SHRINKING or FADING, which is why I do all my dry cleaning right at home. Look for the Dryel At-Home Dry Cleaning Starter Kiton Amazon and in stores.
Heavier items, like blazers and sweaters, need dry cleaning, but not after each wear. Extend the length of time between dry cleaner visits. Save money on cleaning costs and maintain the longevity of materials. Delicate materials require dry cleaning, yet wear away with each wash.
Cleaning services are not operated equally. Search for cleaners who appreciate return customers and provide ongoing savings for advocacy. Cleaners understand there is no major difference in service; consumers want clothes cleaned. Other than distance, nothing stops consumers from using a variety of providers, unless prompted otherwise. ‘Make a deal’ with local vendors who offer discounts to regular customers.
You’re taking a chance when opting to clean expensive items at home, but consider washing ‘dry clean only’ items in cold water in a gentle cycle. Set the item flat and let it air dry. Some tags are suggestive rather than mandatory. You don’t have to take every ‘dry clean only’ article to the cleaners, but wash at home with a higher degree of caution.
Handheld and stationary steamers make clothes look fresh. For a small investment, make clothes look great with electric-powered steamers. Water-fueled products refresh wrinkled items and saves time from having to insert items in the dryer.
Pay more attention to preserving fabrics when washing at home and reduce the need to go to the dry cleaners by 50%. Eliminate pressing, ironing, and steaming while saving time. SWASH pods neutralize odors, de-wrinkle fabrics, and refresh clothing. Excessive cleaning and heavy-duty cycles actually damage fabrics. Invest in your wardrobe; make clothes look great and extend the life of fabrics while saving money and time.
Consider purchasing fewer clothes each season. Reducing items in a wardrobe means fewer trips to the cleaners and a lesser need for home cleaning products. If ‘dressing to impress’ is a priority, divide your wardrobe. Wear ‘house’ clothes when out of the public eye, preserving the life of more stylish and valuable clothing.
You shouldn’t have to pay additional money to maintain high-end clothing and formal wear. Save money by making infrequent visits to the cleaners and using a variety of home products to treat and preserve clothing.
