8 Awesome Facts On Dry Cleaning

All the people know that dry cleaning is a simple method of cleaning different kind of clothes and this cleaning method gives you very good result in terms of cleaning. But a lot of facts are there that many people do not know about dry cleaning and people either remain unaware about those facts or they make their own assumptions for same. Here, in this article I am going to share 8 awesome facts on dry cleaning that can be completely new for you.


It is not actually dry:
When we hear the term dry cleaning then most of us assume that dry cleaner will use some special method to clean the clothes without using any liquid. However, this is not fact because dry cleaners use some special solvent to remove the oils, grease, dirt, dust and other stain from the clothes. In this solvent they use small amount of water as well to clean the clothes. So, if you also have this assumption that dry cleaning is actually dry then you shall change your opinion now.

Many people forget their clothes:
You might not believe, but this is a big fact that many people give their blankets or quilts for dry cleaning and they never pick it back. Sometime people don’t pick their stuff because they forget to pick from dry cleaning and sometime they don’t because they don’t want to have in their home. Because of this sometime laundry shop looks like an emporium of old clothes and dry cleaners don’t like this kind of customers because they lose money on them.

Women’s clothes are hard to dry clean:
Many time women put their clothes on laundry for dry cleaning and then they claim dry cleaner charge more money for women’s cloths. Indeed, they charge more money for female clothes but they don’t charge more money because of the gender, but they charge money according to the fabric of the cloths. That means if you will give your silk or velvet clothe for dry cleaning then it will need special care and that’s why it will charge more money also to you. So, if you are about to complain for the price, make sure you check your clothes and its fabric as well.

You can ask your dry cleaner for re-cleaning:
This is a common opinion that if you get a clothe back from dry cleaner after the dry cleaning work is done, then you have to pay the money even if you are not satisfied with the cleaning result. Well, I cannot give a straight forward comment on it because some dry cleaners don’t accept their mistake, and many others accept it. So, if you notice smell of chemicals or a dirty spot, then you can ask for the reprocessing of the cloth without paying any extra money for that and your dry cleaner will need to do that.

Some cleaning agents can cause allergy to you:
This is not a positive fact but you need to know it and that’s why I am sharing it with you. Most of the dry cleaners use perchloroethylene as their cleaning agent, which can cause allergic reaction to some people. Although dry cleaners try to remove the smell before giving your cloth to you, but sometime this smell can remain there in your cloth. If you ever notice the smell of Perc in your dry cleaned clothes, then you should ask for the reprocessing instead of using it. If your dry cleaner is sensible and really care for his reputation and his loyal customers then he will surely do the reprocessing for all of your clothes without charging any money for same.

Instruction labels are really important:
 The biggest mistake that people make while dry cleaning their cloth is that they ignore the instruction labels. Mostly people assume that a 4 line small instruction label can give no information to them about dry cleaning and because of this ignorance sometime they end up having a damaged clothe. You need to understand that small label are designed with precise care and you get only the most essential information in that label. So, when you do the dry cleaning of your clothes by your own then make sure you read the label carefully and you follow the instructions suggested by the maker of your cloth on the instruction label.

Green dry cleaning is getting popularity:
 As a I said above, normally dry cleaners user Perc or perchloroethylene as their cleaning agent which is not safe for environment and cause some allergy to human as well. In order to avoid this complication many people are moving toward the green dry cleaning options and they are getting benefits as well. However, you need to understand that green dry cleaning is neither easy nor cheap. Also, the result of green dry cleaning might not be as good as you expect from traditional method. So, if you are also planning to go ahead for that option then you need to keep this simple thing in your mind.

Many people lose their clothes during dry cleaning:
This is one of the most unavoidable things that is related to dry cleaning and it happens very often with big dry cleaners. But if you think your dry cleaner actually lost it then you are wrong about it because this issue occur because dry cleaners send your clothes to someone else. That means it is a mistake made by dry cleaners and because of that you end up losing your favorite dress. Though you can reduce the risk of losing your clothes just by choosing the right dry cleaner for your dry cleaning work.

In addition to this thing few people also believe that dry cleaners make a lot of money by dry cleaning but that is not actually true. A dry cleaner needs to use special equipment for the dry cleaning process and those equipment do not come cheaper. Also, they need to hire specially skilled people for completing various dry cleaning work including cleaning, pressing and delivering it to your door step.
