I’ve watched several of Antonio’s videos and articles on washing dress shirts. I now wash on “wool”, dry on delicate to “damp dry” then iron.
What I would like to know is how rough are commercial laundering & press services at a dry cleaners? How will this affect the longevity of the shirt?
I have been watching some videos about Dryel and how could be saving you on dry cleaning and I’m wondering if is recommended for suits and dry clean only shirts? Are you really saving money or just wasting your clothes when it comes to suits and dry clean only shirts?
How about cleaning a regular shirt with Dryel in your dryer, will prolong your shirt’s life rather then normal machine washing?
I’m sure there are other dry-cleaning at home products, I just know this one.
I have a client that asked a question concerning care of his custom shirts. Is there anything to help prevent “ring around the collar”? or at least slow it down.
We live in the Southern States and is constantly warm and humid. Shirts have to be cleaned more because of that, especially shirts that are light, they seem to collect dirt around the collar.
Any thoughts, besides cleaning the shirts more often?
This is especially a problem for me when I’m traveling – if something wrinkle in my suitcase is there any way to fix it before I have to wear it the next day?
Should I be taking my good cotton dress shirts to the cleaner along with my suits, or can I wash those in the machine at home? Is there anything special I need to do for them?
I’m not a smoker, but business and social events often take me to places where people are smoking all night long. Is there any way to get that smell out of the wool, short of dry-cleaning it multiple times?
Should I expect shrinking every time? Are there kinds of clothes that won’t shrink/wrinkle?
There’s like a thousand different bottles of detergent out there. Is there actually any difference? What should I use for my basic white and light-colored work shirts?
Will dry cleaning remove food stains from a suit, or do I need to treat it somehow at home before I take it in?
Do you have advice on types of suit cleaning products? And weather protection for jackets.
