Laundry isn’t exactly what most people want to do in their spare time, never mind the blunders of accidentally shrinking their favorite sweaters or turning a load of whites pink thanks to one stray sock. We turned to the experts at Fabricare Cleaners for tips on how to avoid the biggest laundry mistakes. With retail locations open seven days a week and a focus on customer care, Fabricare is much more than a dry cleaner and is here to make your life easier.
What mistake do most people make when doing their own laundry?
The most common mistake people make is over-drying. This wears out the clothes faster and causes shrinkage. Another problem is cleaning something at home that should be dry cleaned, spot cleaned or cleaned by another specialty method. This could ruin a garment permanently.
Why is it important to have a professional care for your clothes?
First, there are a lot of different methods to clean clothes and most often manufacturers just slap on a “dry clean only” label. This may not be the best method of cleaning and frequently is detrimental to the life of a garment. Clothing manufacturers are not experts in clothing care. Quality dry cleaners are. Also, professionals will take into consideration your style. Do you like creases in your pants or no crease? Starch or no starch, and other options? Professionals use the best types of soaps as well as finishing equipment to bring your garments back to their original condition.
