Tips for Christmas and New Year

Whilst having a great time this holiday season, be careful not to ruin you prized possessions and gifts. Your Clothes. Here's a few tips for the most common stains this summer...

Gravy - No doubt that after a few Christmas 'cheers' and after tucking into our favourite Christmas roast, a big dollop of gravy will appear on your tie, your shirt, your legs, whatever. Wipe off as much as you can without rubbing! If you rub the spot you can cause the colour in your garment to shift. And it will never look the same again. Gravy also contains fatty oils such as butter that can be tough to get out in the wash. Dave can remove oils from your garments.

Strawberry/Cranberry Sauce - Always a tough stain with the most likely place to spill a thick red sauce is on your white or cream dress. Again do not rub, and try not to smear as it will cause a stain across the garment. Best idea is to take it to Dave as soon as possible so he can remedy the situation.

Champagne - The most common of all stains over summer. Major Tip - Do not put back in wardrobe. Either wash or take to Dave straight away. Drink stains when left alone over time can oxidise and cause a larger yellow stain, which is very difficult to get out in the dry cleaning process.

Red Wine - Its never your fault I know, the waiter spilt it, the rude man walking past. I've heard it all. Red wine can often be removed by soaking the garment, or by delicate spot cleaning by Dave.

Beer - See Champagne

Grass - Grass stains may present themselves after diving for a classic catch at the family cricket game after a few too many. With proper treatment, most grass stains can come out of washable clothing, but for tougher stains, Dave can be at your service.

All the very best for the festive season, I trust you will all enjoy and I will see you all in the New Year.
