Dry Cleaner Chiang Mai:
Dry Clean or normal wash.?
Now there’s a question that is often asked. Many people request dry cleaning for items that could easily be hand washed or machine washed saving a lot of money. (and some green house gas)
As you probably know, the main reason for having to dry clean any garment is because water and soap might cause damage. Some fabrics definitely don’t do well if they get wet. Another reason for a dry clean might be because of a stain. Sometime dry cleaning can remove stains that water and soap just won’t budge.
Why Choose Em’s
At Em’s laundry we are very happy to advise as to the best process for a particular garment, fabric or stain. We have on occasions advised that normal wash or hand wash will be much better. Not so harsh and of course a lot less expensive. This is especially so with shirts. Certainly if it’s a silk shirt then dry clean is the way to go. Truth is that most shirts which are commonly cotton or polyester or a mix will look just as good with a wash and good iron. The shirt will last longer too.
Another example is a feather pillow. Most of us imagine that water will totally destroy a feather pillow, but think about it for a moment, feathers are resilient to water, especially duck feathers.
There are many such garments, bedding and furnishings and the labels will often say normal wash. For what ever reason a lot of us feel dry cleaning is the better process.
Bottom line: if you want dry cleaning… you’re the boss. However if you ask us we are very happy to advise. Give you a great result and possibly save you a bart or two.
