Isn't it a pain living in an era where knowledge of almost anything you want to know about is on the web at your fingertips, yet we still can't get straight answers on so many things we deal with everyday? The other day I met someone at a community meeting and when he found out I was in the industry, he cornered me to ask how the buttons on his $400 Eton shirt could break if his cleaner is hand pressing his shirt? I won't bore you, but obviously he wasn't just "hand pressing" his shirt! This well educated professional was simply dumbfounded. He was buffaloed by someone not doing the job right and not admitting to it either. That's when it hit me, I'm going to set the record straight.
So... want to know about dry cleaning? This is the place for you. From couture to country, heirloom to Hermes, I can answer your questions and give you the straight answers you're looking for. Dry cleaning can be a mystery... let me pull back the curtain...
When I was a young teen, circumstances required that I become the family expert in the laundry room, not something I chose, but something I found that I had a talent for when pressed into service by my parents. I also noticed a strange thing happening - I started to like the cleaning challenges my family threw at me through the laundry room door. No... I won't confess this to any of my friends, but still - I had, and have, a talent with fabrics, finish and garment construction.
I'm not a chemist, my formal degrees are in Aeronautics and Aviation Safety, how that translates to fabricare, well let's face it - it doesn't. The knowledge I've gained is from in-depth one-on-one instruction from experts in the industry, hands-on training courses, colaboration with peers, a lot of reading, and years of OJT (on-the-job-training). I may not have a formal degree in anything related to the fabricare industry, but it doesn't diminish the care I will take in cleaning your garments the right way, nor hamper my ability to answer any questions you may have.
I hope you enjoy reading this Blog. Got questions? I've got answers.
