I’m sure many of you can agree on what a great feeling it is to get your favourite garments back from the dry cleaners looking completely fresh, clean and crisp. Although, it can work out to be quite expensive if you use this service regularly. I personally don’t choose to dry-clean very often, however one thing I’ve noticed more of these days is the number of clothes I’ve bought which have a label stating “Dry-clean Only”.
The majority of the time I just end up cleaning them in the washer with everything else, mainly because if I followed all the label instructions for each item I would probably be making the owner of my local dry cleaners a very wealthy man/woman. Additionally, the amount of toxic and carcinogenic chemicals they use during the dry-clean process puts me off wanting to have my clothes exposed to them every time I need them washed. Therefore, I present to you some top tips on how I reduce the amount of money I spend on dry-cleaning, whilst still achieving the same cleaning results.
