Garment Care

When wearing your garment, please be careful of:

  • Substances that stain material: including but not limited to: eg: red wine, dyed drinks such as red/blue Vodka Cruisers, Ink, heel marks, oils, waterproof makeup, fake tan, grass stains, mud/dirt etc. TIP: If something of concern is spilled on you, head to the bathroom & rinse that spot under cold water before the mark dries. Make a note of what substance caused the mark as this info will give our cleaners the best possible chance of removal.

  • Long Dress/Dresses with Trains: Be careful of you or people around you stepping on your dress in heels (especially pointy heels - it is safer wearing a block heel), dragging your dress across outdoor surfaces (dirt, mud, grass) rough surfaces (eg concrete, bitumen) or dirty surfaces, dragging chair legs over your dress etc
