General Questions

  • How often should I dry clean my clothes?

    Garments that are soiled or affected by perfume, deodorant, perspiration or salt stains should be taken to the dry cleaners as soon as possible. Stains left for longer periods of time are more difficult to remove. During normal wear, clothes are exposed to air pollution and grit, which weakens the fibres of your garments.

    Light coloured garments, silks and linens should be cleaned after each wear as they tend to be more vulnerable to dirt and perspiration stains.

    Always have your garments dry cleaned before storing them at the end of a season.

  • How long does it take to have alterations done?

    Garments are usually ready in 2-3 business days. More complicated items such as relinings or alterations on wedding gowns or restyling may take 5-7 days. However if you need something in a rush, we have some on-site tailors who will try to meets your needs, and may be able to do the repairs while you wait.
