The Art of Wedding Dress Cleaning

Seven Tips to Save your Wedding Dress Forever

1. It is important to have your wedding dress cleaned within a month after your wedding. There is no need to run to the dry cleaner the next day, but be sure not to leave your dress on the back of your bedroom door for two years. Eventually, stains do set and become nearly impossible to remove.

2. NEVER store your dress, in a plastic bag. Jeeves has regrettably seen too many wedding dresses damaged by mold, after being stored in a plastic bag.

3. Use a drycleaner that has bridal expertise for wedding dress cleaning. The dry cleaner down the road, that cleans your husband's shirts, simply won't do.

4. Run away from any dry cleaner who posts a sign that states, "We are not responsible for buttons, beads and trim." Simply put, if they are professionals, then why are they not responsible?

5. Don't use a cleaner who preserves your dress and doesn't allow you to open the storage box. Don’t you want to be able to show your daughter your wedding dress?

6. Wash your hands or wear cotton gloves before handling your cleaned wedding dress. Oil from your hands has the ability to discolor your dress over time.

7. Never store your dress in an attic or a basement. Attics are always too hot, and basements too damp. No exceptions. As a matter of fact, even finished basements that look dry are too damp.
