Dry Cleaning is similar to washing, but without water. The Dry Cleaning process uses special solvents and soaps designed not to harm the fabric and dyes of clothing that cannot withstand the effects of ordinary soap and water. By removing the water from the cleaning process and replacing it with a liquid solvent it creates a gentler process that reduces the risk of shrinkage and color loss.
Bring you garment to us as soon as possible after the staining occurs. If you attempt to remove the stain before bringing it to your cleaners always BLOT the soiled area, never rub a spot. Delicate fabrics such as linen and silk can easily be damaged by rubbing. The longer the stain remains in the clothing it decreases the chance of removal. Heat can set stains in the fabric.
