What is it about summer days that bring on a sense of relaxation and carry with them a more laidback nature than all of the other days of the year? Even when we’re not technically on vacation, we all seem to make the most of the breaks we do have in our day-to-day routines. Maybe we all just slow down a little bit more in the heat or maybe the impending knowledge of what fall and winter can be like for us out here in Eastern Canada boosts our appreciation for our summers!
Lately, we’ve been finding ourselves outdoors as much as possible, hiking, barbecuing, swimming, or just finding a good patio to sit on. We’ve been taking advantage of summer and we hope that you have been able to as well. While we will never complain about it, this has meant having to deal with some, or all, of the following: pollen, grass stains, ketchup, mustard, and some spilled sugary drinks. Unfortunately, stains don’t take a summer vacation along with the rest of us. In fact, at times it seems like they are working even harder to inconvenience you, doesn’t it?
But this should really be the least of your worries while you are on vacation or while you are busy working and trying to enjoy as much of the summer as your can on your days off. We know that the last thing you want to do on your Sunday afternoon is spot treat a mustard stain from yesterday’s picnic.
However, the truth is that when we enjoy all that summer has to offer, we are probably going to run into a few stain hiccups. Eating outside, while amazing, also causes some of the most notorious summer specific stains; ketchup and mustard seem to settle into clothing immediately while grease stains from the barbecue are probably ruining someone’s crisp white shirt as we speak. And let’s not even talk about the state of your kids’ clothes from those relay races.
As dry cleaners and clothing care specialists in the GTA, let us take care of your stains so you can enjoy the remainder of the summer. We are experts in treating summer specific stains in all the delicate fabrics you may not know how to treat yourself. Rather than spending hours trying to scrub ketchup out of your linens or spot treat spilled champagne on your bridesmaids dresses, bring them to us. Remember, if you are running short on time, we pick up as well!
Most importantly with all of these stains, don’t wait too long. The longer sugars, pollens, and food stains sit, the harder they are to get out. We know you would rather not spend your holiday soaking and scrubbing, so we are happy to do it for you. There are only a few more summer days left, so let us be the busy ones so that you can squeeze out the last few moments of sunshine.
