Dry-clean-only clothing can actually shrink a full two to three sizes, while drapes and other textiles have been known to shrink to about half their size. Stretching out of shape is another potential hazard, leaving you with things like jumper sleeves that reach all the way to the floor.
Delicate fabrics demand delicate cleaning methods, and throwing them in the washer isn’t one of them. Dry cleaning takes care not to snag or rip fragile textiles, including the inner shell linings of capes, dresses and coats.
One of the main reasons many garments are labeled Dry Clean Only is because their fabrics are not colourfast. Regular washing can cause the dyes to bleed, fade or otherwise ruin the item.
Just like other fragile fabrics, sequins, beading and lace can be easily destroyed in the washing machine. Professional dry cleaners are skilled at handling and protecting the most delicate items.
Soft fabrics may become rough and stiff. Others may be plagued by those little balls known as fabric pilling. The slow, gentle process of dry cleaning preserves a fabric’s integrity and appearance.
