It is always smart to get your winter clothes, especially wools, cleaned for summer storage. The summer months are when insects, especially moths, are most active, eating away at leftover food, beverages, and perspiration stains. The damage won’t show up until next winter when you have your clothes dry cleaned. If you have questions, drop us an email.

Some buttons, beads or sequins are made of polystyrene, which softens or melts on exposure to dry cleaning solvent. Beads and sequins may be covered with a thin coating of color, which may come off during wear or cleaning. According to the Federal Trade Commission care label rule, trims must be able to withstand the recommended care process, therefore, if there is a problem you should return the garment to the retailer.

Dye Fading from Light

#355 – Dye Fading from Light
Sometimes mysterious areas of color loss appear on clothes that are exposed for a period of time to
the sun or artificial light, after dry cleaning or washing. Some fabric dyes are more sensitive to light
than others, but all are much more sensitive to light if damp with moisture, such as perspiration, liquid
spillage and rain showers. Direct and indirect light sources contain invisible light spectrums, such as
ultra-violet rays, that can alter the chemical structure of dyes. Manufacturers must select durable dyes
appropriate for expected conditions of normal use and storage. Fabrics well into or past their expected
life cycle will eventually exhibit some normal light fading.
