Most households in Singapore have a washing machine to clean soiled clothing. Due to the lack of seasonal changes in Singapore, Singaporeans don’t find the need to have different laundry options, and typically rely on one washer to get the job done. Hence, while some of us sort items according to colour and fabric types before washing them, others throw every piece haphazardly into the appliance and have them cleaned in one wash. However, this method of cleaning can damage your clothes and may not be effective at removing dirt thoroughly.
Furthermore, many clothing items cannot be washed together in a washing machine and require tender loving care or professional dry cleaning in order for them to remain in good condition and continue to clothe you nicely even after years of use. Some delicate fabrics such as linen, leather, denim, silk, and wool need to be dry cleaned in order to prevent damage. Here’s why dry cleaning is essential and should be used to complement your laundry routine.
Offer Convenience and Saves Time
Professional dry cleaning services offer convenience and help busy individuals save time by handling your laundry for you. Apart from dry cleaning, most companies also offer regular washing services for dirty clothes that don’t require special treatment. If you barely have time to care for your garments yourself, sending them to the dry cleaner’s is an easy way to get fresh and clean clothes while you devote your time to other important tasks at hand.
In Singapore, dry cleaning services are typically available round the clock, even during holidays and on the weekends. Some provide pick up and drop off where they collect your filthy items to clean before delivering them back to your residence.
Restore Fabric’s Initial Characteristics
Dry cleaning services use chemical solvents to clean your clothes with little to no water, helping restore the texture, shape, and colour of your fabrics. If you’ve ever spilled food or drinks onto your clothes, the stains can most likely be lifted off with dry cleaning. Removing the stains rids the material of any abrasive elements, such as dirt, that may damage the fabric fibres. Thus, preserving the condition of your clothes and helping them last longer as well.
The solvent used in laundry dry clean is also effective at removing odours from the fabric, as long as the procedure is followed through properly, most clothing pieces can be returned to their owner smelling fresh and clean.
Throwing your clothes into the washing machine and letting them tumble, wash and dry will cause lots of irreversible damage to them, especially if they are constructed of delicate fabrics. Dry cleaning, on the other hand, removes dirt and cleans the materials gently with a solvent that does not penetrate the fibres like water does. Proper cleaning and storing of the items will also protect it from potential damage caused by insects and prevent stretching and shrinking.
