"I'm an "organic" nut and I'm very conscientious about what I eat, what I breathe in, and what I touch, especially when it comes to carcinogenic materials.

Experts in Coat and Rainwear Cleaning

As the saying goes, “Life’s not about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about dancing in the rain.” Although this quote may have a more metaphorical message, we think everyone SHOULD take an opportunity to literally dance in the rain. This means, you may need to pull out that raincoat from the back of the closet to be cleaned. 

Even if your coat only sees the outdoors on rainy days, it should still have the same level of cleaning care as your favorite items. Gone are the days of drab raincoats, now there are an endless variety of bright styles in an array of fabrics, allowing your raincoat to play a more stylish role in your wardrobe. Here are a few of the fabric trends in outwear from the past few years and the specialized care they require:

  • Brushed Cotton: This type of fabric is used to create softer, less bulky looks for outerwear. While it contributes to a more stylish look, it can also show wear quickly. Washing brushed cotton in a traditional washing machine can speed wear and tear and make your outerwear garments look older more quickly.

  • Water Repellant Finishes: Most rainwear has varying degrees of water repellant finish to keep you dry and cozy in wet weather. When exposed to traditional washing techniques this finish can break down and crack, making your trusty rain jacket less reliable.

  • Decorative Trims: As rainwear has become more stylish, designers have begun adding decorative trims to garments. It can be difficult to achieve a full cleaning of your outerwear pieces without damaging the trim in a washing machine. Save yourself the time of hand washing your rain jacket and drop it by the dry cleaners.

Dry cleaning will keep your raincoat looking spotless during both the rain and shine. Our specialized processes keep the unique fabric of your jacket in its best condition while providing the highest quality clean possible. So stay dry during rainy days and keep your rain jackets looking like new for years to come.

  • Quality of Work: Choose a cleaner that takes care in cleaning your garments. Your clothes should come back feeling and smelling fresh and ready to wear, without any residue or chemical odors. We suggest using a test garment when trying a new cleaner to be certain the garment is cleaned to your standards.

Whether you’re moving or just haven’t found a preferred dry cleaning service yet, use these tips to find the best cleaner for your needs. Happy searching! 

The Invention of Dry Cleaning

Dry cleaning has become a part of our society as one of the best solutions for washing and caring for clothes, linens, and other fabrics. Today, sending out clothes for dry cleaning has become routine for many professionals. Dry cleaning has been around for centuries, but have you ever wondered how it all started?

Dating back to the ancient Romans, the ruins of Pompeii have records of “fullers”, professional Roman clothes cleaners. Fullers utilized ammonia and lye for laundering, as well as a type of clay known as “fuller’s earth”, used to absorb grease and soils from clothing.

Dry cleaning that bears more of a likeness to today’s methods is attributed to Jean Baptiste Jolly. A dye-works owner in 1825 France, Baptiste Jolly noticed that oil had evaporated from an area of cloth where his maid spilled spirits of turpentine. After conducting further tests with turpentine, Baptiste Jolly and his son-in-law, Petite Didier developed a process for cleaning clothing they called “nettoyage á sec”, or dry cleaning.

As time has passed, dry cleaning methods have changed. Petroleum based solvents were done away with because of their highly toxic and flammable properties as well as lingering scent. While the dry cleaning industry has made strides in cleaning solutions and techniques, there is still a push to provide the best possible service with the least environmental impact.

We are proud to offer a safe, silicone solvent that cleans garments without hazard to you or the environment. In addition to our solvents, we offer reusable garment bags to reduce waste. We’re proud to make a difference through our Advanced Dry Cleaning methods and services, offering better and more efficient service for you, our customers.

Sleep Sound with These Bedding Care Tips

Bedding can be quite an investment. Knowing the proper way to care for your bedding will bring you years of use for your favorite linens. Here are our tips:

Don’t Eat in Bed: It’s tempting to curl up to a movie and bowl of popcorn in bed, but no matter how careful you may be, crumbs and drips always seem to find a way onto bedding. Many times, bed linens are made from fabrics and materials that make it difficult to spot treat. Save yourself the trouble of stained or crumb filled bedding and keep snacks away.

Upgrade Bedding: Create a comfortable place to rest. Using higher quality linens allows for more comfort at night for more refreshed mornings. When searching for new linens, look for fabrics that are breathable and allow easy airflow. If you have concerns about allergens, organic cotton or linen-cotton blends without dye are great options.

Comforter Cover: If your comforter is not overly decorative or ornamental, use a comforter cover. It will protect your bedding from wear and is easier to clean as it is smaller and less bulky than a full comforter, protecting you from allergens and dust.

Wash Schedule: Nothing beats the feeling of fresh sheets. Creating a washing and care schedule for bedding linens keeps dirt and dust from making a permanent home in your bed. 

Pillow Talk: The right pillow can make all the difference in the world when it comes to a restful nights sleep and when you find the perfect pillow you want to keep it for years. A pillow cover will protect your pillow from dust and stains while still maintaining comfort. In addition, regular wash cycles for your pillow will keep them fresh and fluffy.

Here at Crest, we provide expert dry cleaning services to keep your beautiful bedding bright and cozy for years. 

Why Dry Cleaning Is Better for Your Clothes

Imagine yourself in the store, purchasing a brand new elegant shirt. The fabric hugs you perfectly and the color is right on trend. As you walk out of the store, purchase in hand, you can't help but smile, thinking about the look on everyone's face when you walk into the room confidently, in your new shirt. The next day, it's a hit! As you go home, you start to think about the best way to care for your new shirt so it will last for years to come. We suggest professional dry cleaning. Why? Because dry cleaning is better for your clothes, see how: 

1. Delicate Process — When you put your new shirt in a traditional washer, the fabric is flooded with water and solvent. The abrasive movements of the washing machine can cause damage to the shirt you can never repair. Keep in mind, that as soon as you close the washing machine lid you have little control of what happens to your shirt. 

2. Just Like The Day You Bought It — Expert dry cleaning won't cause shrinking and helps maintain the color and texture of fabric. If you want that same perfect fit and trendy hue, dry cleaning is the way to go!

3. Stain Removal — Crest Cleaners are experts on stain removal. When stain mishaps happen, don't turn your shirt into a mad science stain experiment, bring it to us for the best chance of removal. Dry cleaning has a unique ability to dissolve oil and grease in garments, unlike traditional washing. 

4. The Finished Look — When you take your shirt out of the washer and dryer, the end result can be wrinkles, which means ironing. Ew...more work! With dry cleaning you are delivered a crisp, clean and fresh shirt in one easy step. 

Is it worth taking the risk on your new favorite shirt? We don't think so. Choose Crest Cleaner's professional dry cleaning for all your favorite clothes and we will make sure you have them for years to come. 

3 Tips to Make Your Suit Last

Oscar Wilde so wisely said, “A well-tied tie is the first serious step in life."

We believe an expertly cleaned suit is an even greater step to a professional appearance and elevated career mojo. The suit demands and portrays respect. A well cleaned suit could make a great first impression or seal the deal in an important meeting. But suits don’t only apply to business. For any special occasion like a wedding or charity gala, your suit can set the tone for a great event.  

That being said, caring for your suit properly, in between cleanings, is essential. We will do everything we can do make your suit look it’s best, but with these three tips you can extend the lifetime of your suit and prevent irreparable damage in the long run.

Tip 1: Don’t Treat Stains. If you stain your suit, your first action should be to take it straight to a professional. Do not try to treat a stain yourself. You may cause more damage or make a stain permanent. Read here for the full list of DON’T’s when it comes to stain treatment.

Tip 2: Hang Your Suits. Do not fold your suit or lay on a surface. Hanging the suit, allows the fabric to recover from being worn and the pull of gravity can take out most wrinkles. Make sure the pockets are empty to avoid odd shapes in the suit.

Tip 3: Cover Your Suit. Use a cloth cover to prevent stains and allow the air to circulate through the suit even when it’s stored.

Follow these tips and your suit will provide many years of use. Don’t forget to professionally clean your suits with Crest. We are the experts in suit cleaning and will do our very best to keep you looking sharp for your business and personal events. 

Stains...The First Biggest Mistake

Stop! Put down the stain remover. Before you try to fix another stain, let’s talk about how you could be making matters worse, plus the BEST action you can take to treat a stain.

The first biggest mistake most people make when it comes to stains, is trying to treat the issue without knowing the proper way to handle it. Every stain and every garment is different, which means the way to treat them is different as well. What may work for one stained garment could ruin another.

Here are 5 mistakes you should avoid to save your garment from stains:

1. Don’t Wait: The longer you let the stain set, the more difficult it is to get out.

2. Don’t Scrub: Your precious garments should be handled with care.

3. Don’t Heat: Hot water can bond the stain to the fabric.

4. Don’t Mix: Using several different chemicals and soaps can create a concoction of disaster for your garment.

5: Don’t Test: Testing a new stain removal product on your garment is always too risky.

So what should you do? Our recommendation is to take the garment straight to an expert as soon as you possibly can. At Crest, our dry cleaning staff has the knowledge and experience to treat your garment stains correctly and quickly. Although we cannot promise to fix every stain, we can guarantee that we will do our best to help your garment look new again!
