Cleaning Embellished Blouses the Right Way
Cleaning an embellished top can be tricky. When in doubt, we often encourage you to leave it to the professionals. Recently, Joe Hallak sat down with Martha Stewart’s magazine regarding the proper cleaning techniques. We do want you to keep in mind that not all ornamentation is the same.
When a garment with ornamentation enters our facility, we inspect it thoroughly. While we are looking for stains, we are also looking for how this embellishment was adhered to the garment. Glue? Hand-sewn? This will also play a part in how we will clean the clothing. Sequins, beads, etc. are tested prior to any cleaning process. It is important to understand how they will react to specific solvents. Fortunately, there are plenty of earth-friendly gentle solvents that can be used for even the most delicate pieces.
