Have you ever wondered why your friends’ clothes always look polished, crisp and clean? Most likely it’s because they take them to the Dry Cleaners for regular cleaning. Dry cleaning has become an important part of the professional business person’s household budget as they know looking well-dressed is advantageous in their work.
In fact, a recent article talked about how ‘dressing for success’ is an integral part of an Entrepreneur’s business plan. The author gave several examples of how he tested the theory and sure enough, landed many new accounts just because he updated his look. It’s true, a book IS judged by its cover! It shouldn’t be that way, but in our society, the way you dress is directly related to how you are perceived.
Some people have never taken their clothes to the dry cleaners and may wonder what the benefits are to dry cleaning. Getting stains out is definitely a must, and the Dry Cleaners is the best place to get that done. You may have a favorite sweater that’s been hanging in your closet and now it smells musty. Dry Cleaning is an effective way to remove certain types of odors. If your clothes are continually shrinking in your washing machine, you might want to consider dry cleaning. Because no water is being used, the color won’t run and the fabric won’t shrink.
One of my friend’s favorite uses of her local Dry Cleaners is to have them do the ironing for her! What a great idea! Bring your laundry to the cleaners and they will clean it, iron AND fold it! If your time is valuable or if laundry is on your list of things you just don’t like to do, then consider the alternative!
