PRINT THIS PAGE AS A GUIDE
All clothing must be bagged and sealed in garbage bags with draw string type, yellow or blue string 30 gallon bags. Bedding: sheets, pillow cases, comforters and pillows must be bagged and sealed prior to our arrival as well.
All items that are clean in draws or closets must be taken out bagged and sealed, such as underwear, socks, hosiery, towels, sheets, jeans, cotton shirts,
t- shirts etc. All clean items in most cases can be put into dryers for 15 to 20 minutes.
Baby clothes and toys can be dried in a hot dryer as well if they are dryable. The same is true for pet clothes and toys. If not use a hair blower or steamer.
Anything that is clean and washable can be put into dryers without having to wash first.
Why spend hundreds of dollars or more at the dry cleaners ?
Dry cleanable items such as suits, slacks, ties, dresses, skirts and blouses that are clean can be put in a hot dryer for approximately 20 minutes then removed.
Dry cleanable and washable items that are dirty can also be put in the dryers but make sure you separate and label the bags.
All furniture must be moved 18 inches from the walls so our service techs can apply their applications at the baseboards and under the furniture.
YES, FOOTWEAR IS A MUST THEY HIDE IN THESE AS WELL
All shoes, boots, sneakers, sandlals can be put in a hot dryer for approximately 10-15 minutes by securing the door with duct tape. You may also put the footwear in a nylon type bag and then place it into the dryer. Because of the weight you may still have to duct tape the door with at least one or two pieces of tape to prevent the door from opening. PLEASE NOTE: SOME LAUNDROMATS WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO PUT FOOTWEAR IN THEIR DRYERS.You can also use a hair blower on high heat to heat the shoes and handbags as well in your home. Same goes for a steamer. For steam applications the rule is 1 inch per second. Bag and seal in clean bags.
