Gown Care Tips
Bridal Gown Cleaning and Care Tips for Keeping Your Gown Safe: Be Sure You Always:
. . . avoid using plastic to cover your wedding gown because plastic bags emit fumes that yellow your gown, and plastic shrink-wrapping traps moisture that can mildew your gown–even an old sheet is better protection than plastic
. . . ask what precautions the Specialist takes to safeguard delicate trims and decorations on your wedding gown and how the cleaner protects against latent stains
. . . choose a Specialist who cares for your wedding gown in his or her own facility and takes personal responsibility for your gown, not someone who sends it on somewhere else
. . . ask to inspect your wedding gown personally and make sure your wedding gown will be stored in a completely acid-free, archival-quality wedding chest lined with fabric or acid-free tissue
. . . ask who will honor the guarantee–today or twenty-five years from today
. . . avoid storing your bridal gown in the attic or basement where there are extreme changes in heat or humidity
