Dealing with Back to School Stains

Now that the mad rush of September is over and all the back to school shopping has been done, you may be noticing that some of those newly purchased school clothes are starting to come home with stains.  Unfortunately, kids will be kids, but as a parent, you want the most life out of these school clothes as possible and preferably a stain free life.

As the premier eco-friendly dry cleaners in Vancouver, we would like to offer you the following advice on how to keep your children’s school clothes stain free and looking like new for the entire school year.

Know the Schedule

Ask your child about their school schedule so that you can send them with the appropriate dress.  For instance, if it is an art class day, consider purchasing an apron or smock so that they can paint worry and stain free.  Make sure to send your child with appropriate gym clothes with the understanding that grass stains and other gym related wear and tear are going to be the norm.

Read Those Labels

Every garment in your child’s wardrobe comes with a care tag attached to it.  Make sure to read the label and understand what it means.  If a certain shirt needs to be washed in hot water, do not wash it in cold water.

Here’s the deal:

Incorrect label reading can not only ruin or shrink certain clothing, it can also set stains, making them a permanent fixture on your child’s favourite shirt.

Bring it to a professional

Sometimes the stain is just too big or the garment is just too precious to attempt a home remedy stain removal.  If this is the case, bring that stain to us. We offer professional grade dry cleaning and our friendly staff can remove even the most stubborn stains.

We know how busy this time of year is so we offer a free pick-up and delivery service to free up some of your precious time for those after school soccer practices or dance recitals.

Let us help you keep your child’s school clothes stain free and looking like new for the remainder of the school year.  We look forward to working with you today.
