Sugar and Tannin Stains

Stains in this category include fruit juices, coffee, tea, soft drinks such as pepsi coca coke, etc, tomatoes, beer and others. When these substances first come in contact with a garment, they are not very evident and in many instances, they do not appear to have stained it. Neither you nor the dry cleaner is aware that these stains are present until after they have been set by the heat as part of the cleaning process. When this happens, it is too late to remove the stains. You should immediately sponge these stains off lightly with cool water and then take the garments to the cleaner. Please make us aware of these stains.

Steam Clean

Perfume and Cologne Stains

These products contain alcoholic. This alcoholic content will cause some dyes to bleed or run. This will leave the stained area either lighter in colour, cause it to changed shade or leave a darker ring around the damaged area. To avoid this, never apply perfumes or colognes to your clothing. Instead, place it on the skin in areas that are not likely to come in contact with your clothing.
Alcohol damage is usually permanent on fabrics and can seldom be removed, even by your cleaner.
The distinctive odour of perfume is often noticeable in the damaged area of the garment.


Deodorants and Anti-Perspirants

Perspiration weaken many fabrics when it is allowed to remain on a fabric for a long period of time. For this reason, clothes should be cleaned frequently to remove the deodorants, antiperspirants, and perspiration from your garments. Follow the manufacturer’s guide when you apply deodorants and antiperspirants.

Steam Clean

Blood Stains

Blood stains should be treated immediately with cold water. Use cold water as quick removal it is very important. Call us immediately about this type of stain.

Steam Clean

Oxidized Oil

This includes such oils as linseed oil, salad dressings, mayonnaise, French dressing, cooking oils and gravy. These stains tend to combine very readily with the oxygen in the air and once they have oxidized, it is virtually impossible to remove or even lighten the colour of the stain at home. Bring it to us we can help.
