Wedding season is upon us! Many of you may be overwhelmed by the number of invitations that seem to create a never-ending pile on your kitchen table. This means long nights of dancing, celebration, and fun. Don’t worry about pulling out that suit that hasn’t been used in months or spilling a drink will dancing too hard, because it all has an easy fix, dry cleaning. Here are some tips on when to know if that suit needs to be taken to the dry cleaner.

Look out for stains

The worst thing you can do is, give time to the stains to settle down on your clothes. By the time you take it to the laundry the stain has already oxidized on your suit, and it becomes more difficult to remove it. Hence, after you take off your suit at the end of the day, check properly to see if there are any stains that you may not have noticed before. It is very easy to miss those accidental stains from coffee or food plates, particularly in parts we do not normally see such as the underside of the elbows. As a responsible owner, you should always ensure that any major stains are immediately dealt with.

The dust and the grime

There is no escaping dirt and dust, not in India at least! Every time you wear your suit, it invariably gets coated with a layer of dust. A gentle brushing or shake can dislodge the bigger particles, but over time, the finer dust that stays behind leaves your suit looking dull and dirty. Moreover, direct exposure to a heavily polluted environment means that you should probably get your suit dry cleaned immediately. If left alone, dust can damage the fibers of the suit and severely reduce its life. It makes sense to tackle this problem with a regular cleaning schedule. At the very least, invest in a good suit brush.

Regular brushing after you take off your suit also prolongs its life and lowers the need for a dry clean. Using small strokes against the “grain” and then finishing off with soft strokes along the grain to brighten its sheen also works wonders. Doing this also gives you a good indication of when the accumulated dust and other fine particles are beyond repair. That is the time when you should take your suit to the dry cleaner.

How often do you wear your suits?

How often you wear your suit has an impact on how frequently it needs to be sent to the dry cleaners. If you wear a wedding suit only once or twice a year, it is a good idea to get it dry cleaned before the start of the wedding season and then once again after the season is over. On the other hand, if you wear suits to work every day, you need a much more frequent schedule. You also must consider other factors like the environment you work in and how much you tend to sweat.

If you must wear your suit at any point outside an air-conditioned room, chances are that it has absorbed all the sweat that passes through the shirt, even though you may not feel warm or sweaty. Frequently wearing suits also necessitates owning multiple suits that you should cycle.

Taking all these factors into consideration, you should dry clean your suits at least once every two months. For the worst cases, you might need to get a dry-cleaning service for your suit every 2-3 weeks.

In order to know when to take your suit to the dry cleaner lookout for stains, dirt, and grime. Also take into consideration how often you use your suit. Trust your laundry to the professionals at The Best Dry Cleaners of Savannah
