Is frequent dry cleaning bad?
ANSWER:  Actually, proper dry cleaning can prolong the life of your clothing. Stains set with age, can render garments unwearable; ground-in-dirt and soil act as an abrasive, like sandpaper, causing deterioration of fibers. In addition, microscopic insects are attracted to soiled clothes causing further damage. Some people mistakenly recommend spot cleaning and pressing in lieu of dry cleaning a garment. By pressing a garment before it is cleaned, unseen dirt, stains, and body oils may be permanently set. Although it's a matter of personal preference how frequently people dry clean their clothing, consumers should know they can't 'over clean' their clothes. As seasons change from one wardrobe to the next, it's a good idea to have your garments professionally dry cleaned prior to storing. Any unseen stains will be removed before they have the opportunity to "set".
