Say whatever you like… but I’ve got issues with dry cleaning!
I’m still a student, so I spend on some and scrimp on some. But dry-cleaning isn’t something I will spend on. (But I still spend on clothes that happen to need dry-cleaning, DANG!)
What do you do with clothes that have to be dry cleaned?
My argument is that clothes that usually have to be dry cleaned are so precious, like silk, printed silk, maybe very special poly and all that, that you shouldn’t even wear them enough to warrant any cleaning, or dry cleaning for that matter.
On hindsight that doesn’t really make sense because you’d wanna make the most of a piece of garment after spending so much on it right? (Assuming it’s not cheap, and you didn’t get it at a sale.)
Most clothes come with a nondescript imperative – 100% SILK, DRY CLEAN ONLY. Which seems pretty harsh and I don’t like the tone of it, so most of the time I just ignore it and don’t do it. LOL.
But Baylene (excuse me for talking so much about Baylene, I can’t seem to help it. By the way they’ve launched a new collection called Flawed II) puts their instructions in such a persuasive and pretty manner I think I’m going to start dishing out ten dollar bills to the dry-cleaners in a happy pink trance.
Love your garment, please dry clean. Can you resist? Hahaha.
Well for now I’m just sticking to dry-cleaning, but of another kind. I’m just airing the clothes out after a day or a few hours of wear. Maybe with a bit of Febreeze so it’s smell fresher. But is that… okay? Is it devastatingly unhygenic? Does reading this gross you out?
I’ve always been mortified of staining my garments, especially with liquids. O wait.. only liquids can stain right. I’ve always had the notion that dry-cleaning IS dry, but it is in fact a very very wet process. If you care to find out more, you can always consult trusty (not very) ol’ Wikipedia.
Plus, I’ve heard of dry-cleaners screwing up garments. Stains get worse, there are holes in the garment, the garment changes colour. It kinda scares me and makes me ultra wary of the dry-cleaners. They’re not cheap either right?
Yes, so you can call me dirty, cheap, broke (well I am really broke), confused, but just offer me what you do with your dry-clean garments!
