Beautiful but Difficult
This lovely silk top, came to Jeeves in need of cleaning and our staff noticed immediatley that the black dye in the print was starting to bleed slightly into the white areas. Our client had only worn the blouse a few times and the black dye was already an issue.
The garment care label indicated to dry clean the blouse using traditional methods. Our head cleaning craftsman, Mike White, who has over 25 years of experience, hand test every garment that could be an issue.
Our test of this black and white printed silk blouse revealed that dry cleaning may cause addtional bleeding of the black dye into the white areas. Our client was notified and asked if she would like to proceed with the cleaning, at "her risk". Jeeves has contacted the designer who made the blouse to see if other issues have been reported. As of now we have not heard back.
