why should you dry clean clothes in the summer?

With the hot summer months in full swing, it is time to bring back all of your summer clothes into your closet. Throughout the summer months, it is advised that you take care of your favorite summer clothes so that they can last you until next summer; the best way to do this is by taking your garments to the dry cleaners! Keep reading to find out 3 reasons why you should take your summer clothes to the dry cleaners. 

Avoid Letting the Sweat Set In

It’s summertime and it is only normal to sweat frequently. Sweating is actually your body’s way of keeping you cool in the summer heat. Summer fabrics, such as cotton, absorb most sweat, keeping your body cool and fresh. However, if the sweat stays on your clothes, it can cause damage from the bacteria. Certain types of bacteria can cause discoloration and bad odors. Additionally, chemicals in deodorant can react with the compounds in sweat, which result in yellowish stains on your clothing. When you get your summer clothes professionally dry cleaned, the dry cleaning process does not allow the sweat to set onto the clothes, preventing the discoloration and eliminating the sweat odors of clothes.

Avoid Shrinkage

Imagine you put on your favorite red romper only to realize that it is much smaller and tighter than it previously was. Well, this is because of your at-home washing machine and dryer. Having your clothes professionally dry cleaned will help you to avoid shrinkage. 

During the manufacturing process, the yarn in the fabric stretches to make the final outfit. However, when the fabric gets wet and then dries, it will shrink. Dryer can also cause additional fabric deterioration. If your clothing has elastic waistbands, they can weaken when exposed to high levels of heath. Because dry cleaning does not use water, it saves clothes from shrinking. 

Protect Delicate Fabrics

When you are handling certain delicate fabrics and materials, such as lace, linen, cotton, rayon, and silk, it is best to let the professionals do the cleaning. These materials are often used in clothes that are worn most commonly during the summer time, such as rompers, jumpsuits, and flowy dresses. While some people prefer to hand-wash their own clothing, a professional dry cleaner will know how to properly remove stains, while keeping the colors bright and crisp, without causing any damage to the material.
