How Does Dry Cleaning Work?

As Featured on WCCO’s “Good Question”:

What happens between the time you drop off your most treasured garments at the cleaners and when you pick them up?

John Lauritsen of the WCCO team asked this “Good Question” last week, and we invited him to take a tour with St Croix Cleaners’ Owner, Dave Nemec, of our main facility here in Stillwater, MN.  There’s a little more to dry cleaning than you might think!  Take a look:

Winter Storage Tips

We stopped by the Twin Cities Live studio yesterday to share some winter storage tips for your favorite garments!

Here are a few of the tips for storing your winter garments until next season:

  • -Clean your clothes before you put them away.  Food and beverage stains can attract clothes moths and silver fish.
  • -Once you get your clothes back from the dry cleaners, remove them from the plastic garment bag.  Your clothes need to “breathe”.   And, don’t store your sweaters on hangers.
  • -When storing winter bedding, make sure to wash and completely dry your comforters.  Remember, comforters can take up to 8 hours to completely dry.
  • -Use lemon rinds and baking soda in your closet.  Lemon rinds keep bugs from burrowing in your clothes.  The baking soda, just like in the refrigerator, will eliminate odors in your clothes.  Don’t use mothballs!  These will leave a permanent odor on your clothing.
