  2. Dry cleaning is essential for garments that are dirty or need to be cleaned. This will prevent the stain from oxidizing or setting. You should not expose the garment to heat, light, or sunlight until you bring it in.
  3. All food and drink spillages should be noted. Point out any areas you have not been able to clean up. The cleaner might be able to repair minor damage.
  4. Tell the technician what kind of spots or stains you have. The technician can safely remove the spot or stain if the source is known. Different types of attention are required for blood, food, wine, ink, and other substances.
  5. Salts in sweat can cause damage to fabrics. To avoid permanent damage or weakening of fabric, have perspiration stains taken off as soon as possible. Silk is especially vulnerable.
  6. Some silk dyes can bleed or change color if they are exposed to alcohol. Before you apply perfume, deodorant, or hair spray, let them dry completely.
