What is dry cleaning

It’s a traditional cleaning method. The stains are pretreated first and then the dress is placed in a special dry-clean machine. Fragile details should be removed or protected with muslin, because the solvent should not damage them. Specialists usually use perchloroethylene or petroleum-based cleaners, which are not as aggressive as perk.

I asked some girls about their experience.

My friend Lilly told me that a standard dry cleaning costs about 100 $ and specialized gown preservation cost between 250$ and 500$. She took her simple dress embellishments to a local cleaner and the price was 90$. Gerbera gave me a good advice to call around and ask if dresses are cleaned in house or sent out and where they send it. She got her gown cleaning during a special and paid about $100, regular price is about $150. Teresa used one preservation company and she says it was really easy. She got a special box and mailed her dress to the company, where they cleaned and steamed it and then packed the dress in a preservation box. That all took about 7 weeks and the price was $150. She was happy! Rebecca rang her dress shop and asked if they could help her. For £200 they could take her dress, check it, send to their dry cleaners and then return it to in 10 days. Some girls say their dresses were about $250-$400 to get cleaned and preserved. Crazy!
