They cost more a little more and are a lot more complicated to use that home products. Enzymes only work in a specific temperature range and require proper equipment to ensure the enzymes are allowed to do their work.  Interested in finding more information on the science of phosphates?  Start here and learn how you can reduce the impact from your home,  http://goo.gl/vIs7O

Six Rules to Live By: Assess and Ask before Doing Anything!

  • Oily stains are usually “blotchy,” with no outline around the perimeter
  • Never put water or water-based stain removers on an oily stain
  • Oily stains usually require drycleaning
  • Bleach does not remove oily stains — new or old
  • Point out all food stains and perspiration stains to your drycleaner
  • Clean or wash all clothing before storing, and do not store in plastic

Cotton for grownups

Cotton is not just for kids anymore – it is making a comeback in a serious way – but be careful when attempting to clean those special pieces at home, even when the label tells you home cleaning is OK.  Natural fibers are prone to losing color over time, and special designs and styles require professional cleaning to make that piece last more than a few wears.  Also, cotton is more susceptible to damage from harsher home cleaning detergents – even those detergents that claim to be eco-friendly have a higher pH than those used by professional cleaners.
