How Best to Treat Stains
If you do encounter a spill on clothing, when possible its best to try and blot the area, (do not rub the stain) with a clean white towel or white paper towel. Once you are able to change clothing bring it to Image as soon as possible. The sooner we can treat a stain, the more likely we are able to remove it using professional dry cleaning agents.
Hair Spray as a Stain Remover
Hair spray is often used as a home remedy to remove certain stains such as ink. Because many hair sprays contain alcohol and/or lacquer it can leave a stain of its own behind or create additional problems when combined with dry cleaning solvents. Its best to let us remove the stain using tried and true dry cleaning products.
Dry Cleaning is best
Dry cleaning uses solvents to remove substances from textiles where as home laundering uses water and soap. The dry cleaning solvents dissolve grease and oil where as water is ineffective for this type of cleaning. Natural fibers wont shrink, discolor or distort when cleaned using dry cleaning solvents, in fact solvents are actually gentler on textiles than soap and water. The bottom line is that clothes last longer and look better because they are more thoroughly cleaned and fabrics react better to professional cleaning agents compared to soap and water.
