Frequently asked questions

Dry cleaning (or dry-cleaning) is any cleaning process for clothing and textiles using an organic solvent rather than water. In fact, the term "dry cleaning" is misleading; it is called dry cleaning because the fluid contains little or no water and does not penetrate the fibers as water does. Dry cleaning uses perchloroethylene (perc) to remove soil and stains from fabric. It is able to dissolve greases and oils and prevents shrinkage, loss of color, and fabric distortion. Dry cleaning is necessary for cleaning items that would otherwise be damaged by water and soap or detergent. Dry cleaning is necessary for fabrics that are delicate and may not do well in daily washing.
Dry cleaning can extend the life of your wardrobe, and your knowledge about drycleaning can bring you more value for your clothing dollar. Dry cleaning does NOT reduce the life of your clothing.
Sets of clothes such as a suit and twin sets should be cleaned together in order to keep colour variations to a minimum. Prolonged cleaning one item of a matching set versus infrequently cleaning of the other could over time lead to observable colour changes and reduced wearing life of the uncleaned item. Please note also that some items that are part of a set may have different cleaning instructions from one another so if in doubt you can always check this with your local and friendly Miracle Dry Cleaning staff.

Exposure to heat or the passage of time may cause stains from food, drinks and other oily substances to oxidise and discolour your clothes a yellow or brown colour. At this point it is more difficult to remove this discolouration effect. Certain chemicals found in anti-per spirants, perfumes and household cleaners can react with clothing - this can be a problem particularly for shirts and blouses. It is therefore recommended that your garments get cleaned after use without long periods of time left for these chemicals to work on the fabric.
