Weddings are occasions filled with joy and unforgettable memories!
You probably haven’t thought about it or maybe you don’t want to think about it yet. But after such a special day, we don’t want to let your wedding dress hang in the closet, dirty and filthy. That would be a shame!
And much like a wedding day, the dress should be treasured and cherished as it marks a special moment in your life. After such an eventful day, wedding dresses have had to endure a lot. A spot here, a spot there and your beautiful long wedding dress has been dragged on the floor all day.
Tips & tricks
You probably want to keep your beautiful wedding dress and maybe secretly wear it every day, or maybe you want to sell it – which would be a shame!
Regardless of your plan, cleaning your dress will have to be done anyway after such a special and fun day.
Do not leave your wedding dress hanging in the closet for too long. This makes it harder for us as textile cleaners to get all the stains out. Please note that some stains may not be immediately visible! Seemingly non-existent stains may suddenly become visible later, once they have oxidised. These types of stains can come from oils, perspiration, drinks, etc. That is why it is always a good idea to dry clean your wedding dress as it will be carefully checked and treated.
The advantages of dry cleaning your wedding dress
Although it may seem like a hassle at first, going to a dry cleaners might make things easier in the long run for wedding dress cleaning and preservation. It is well worth it and you need to look no further!
Beside removing stains, dry cleaning your dress instead of washing it at home has a few other benefits:
- No shrinkage takes place as water is not used. Instead, a special solution is used in order to remove even the most stubborn stains.
- No fabric fading nor tear of dress detailing in the cleaning process.
And jf you have a coloured dress, it can safely be cleaned without any color bleeding!
