Spring will be here before you know it! When the flowers are in full bloom, you will want to show off your spring looks. Instead of buying new, try on your 2019 spring collection. If it’s dirty or doesn’t fit, don’t throw it out! Go the dry cleaner instead.
Ground Hog’s Day has just passed. It sounds like Spring is on its way! With better weather, many people are tempted to invest in a new wardrobe. They want groundbreaking florals for spring. People also love light, pastel, and nautical looks for spring. As we get a spring in our step, we want to look good and feel good. Instead of heading to the mall, look at your clothes form this time last year – do they fit right? Are they stained? Torn? Do they smell?
If you actually like your spring wardrobe collection, you don’t have to start over. If money’s tight, then don’t invest in new looks. Just split your old clothes into two piles: ready to go and ready to go to the dry cleaner. At the dry cleaner, the professionals on site can mend torn fabric, remove stains, take clothing in (or out), and remove that musty smell the clothes took on from sitting in the attic this past year.
For example, maybe you need to liven up that spring wardrobe with new looks. You can head to the dry cleaner for help. They can hem pants. Maybe you have a favorite pair of pants you want to carry from winter into spring. Changing the hem could give you a whole new look with capris or “flood pants.” Maybe you held onto a spring coat that doesn’t fit right – this is the year to use it! Just ask the tailor when is a good time for them to hem jackets. They even do taper waist alterations.
Although few would admit it, there are even people who toss out old clothes in the trash just because they are dirty and require a trip to the cleaners. There is no reason to toss a wool sweater or a silk blouse because it has stains. The dry cleaner can help you, too!
Don’t throw away clothes just because they are “too last year.” Change them up. If you have a flowy dress that could be repurposed as something more form-fitting, take it to the tailor – or bet yet the dry cleaner. Not only can they change the shape of it, they can clean in it for you, too. That’s the glory of a dry cleaner; they are a great place to do dress alterations.
If you don’t have a favorite dry cleaner, try searching the internet for “best dry cleaning near me.” Then you can you see what’s nearby. If you are in Florida, maybe consider Alan Dry Cleaners – we are here to help!
This spring, imagine your life in the better weather, out in the sunshine. Don’t throw out anything if it can be repaired, cleaned, and used again. Save time, money, and energy with a trip to the dry cleaner.
Happy Spring from Alan Dry Cleaners, your source for alterations and dry cleaning.
