Frequent questions about Care Clean’s services
Dry cleaning uses a special solution to clean clothes rather than the usual soap and water. This means clothes don’t stretch, shrink, fade or get damaged through cleaning. We use a series of different processes from the cleaning solution, to a steam clean and any stain removal treatments required. Garments are individually handled and quality checked throughout.
Most fabrics benefit from dry cleaning, especially fragile or delicate materials like silks, satins or wools. However, regular cottons, polyesters, linens and mixed fibres can also be dry cleaned as well as washed normally. The only type of material we can’t dry clean is anything containing plastics such as PVC, but we’ll still take them and put them through a wet cleaning process.
