It’s time to trade out your spring and summer favorites for winter sweaters, coats, and boots. Taking clothes out of the closet and packing them away can maximize your closet space and get you in the mood for the new season. But you can’t just throw your favorite spring and summer outfits into a storage container and shove them under the bed. They may still have dirt, grime, and bacteria from all the spring and summer fun. Dry cleaning and professionally laundering your lightweight clothes before putting them into storage is an essential step if you want to ensure they look great and are ready to wear once the weather warms up again.
Four Reasons To Dry Clean Spring & Summer Clothes Now
Here are four reasons to bring your spring and summer clothes to Flair Cleaners before putting them in storage.
Stains: Most people understand they need to wash their clothing before packing it away. Yet, a simple wash in the washing machine can’t help you avoid discoloration during the months of disuse. Tiny particles clinging onto your clothes can quickly turn into a large, problematic stain if left unattended in a box for more than three months. Dry cleaning your clothes with a professional is the only way to avoid this problem and prevent new stains from forming.
Fresh Scent: It’s an unpleasant surprise to open up a box of stored winter clothes and be greeted by the musty scent of disuse. All those clothes must be washed before you get the chance to wear them, just to remove the smell. Flair Cleaners knows the best way to prevent this, so you are greeted with a fresh, ready-to-wear scent.
Repairs: Imagine opening the storage container next spring in search of your favorite work outfit. Disappointment reigns as you find that the hem is frayed or undone! You told yourself you would have it repaired later, but you never got around to it. Avoid this scenario by dropping off your spring and summer clothes at Flair Cleaners now before you pack them up.
Pests: Did you know packed clothes are the perfect destination for bugs? Storing your clothes without cleaning them first can provide bugs with a perfectly warm breeding ground. Having professional dry cleaners perform a final cleaning prior to storage will practically eliminate the likelihood of this happening. Your clothes will remain fresh so bugs aren’t as easily attracted.
Do yourself a favor. Take care of your clothes before storing them.
