Save money on dry cleaning AND make your suits last longer!

I was moaning to a contact last week that after three dry cleans my suits were so shiny that they were no use. He told me that I was getting it all wrong.

He told me to dab any stains on my suits with a sponge dampened with water and then hang them out to dry on the washing line on a dry, blustery day. Of course I scoffed but fed up with buying a new suit every couple of months I thought I’d give it a try.

Sunday was perfect. It was a crisp, dry and gusty day so I pegged my jackets and suit trousers onto the line. I left them outside for a few hours then hung the jackets on good shaped hangers and clamped the trousers by the hems on trouser hangers and weighted them down with a belt. I left them overnight.

The following morning it was amazing. It really works, the suits were clean, fresh as new and had their shape back. Give it a try!

I was once a suit hanging cynic but am now a convert AND with no perchloroethylenes used it’s got to be better for the environment!
