Drycleaning can extend the life of your wardrobe. Most garments that are labeled with washing instructions are also drycleanable, but some may contain dyes or trim that are not resistant to drycleaning solvent. Some fabrics may not withstand drycleaning, this you must discuss with your drycleaner. It is impossible to determine simply by looking at a fabric if it can withstand drycleaning.
After cleaning, examine your drycleaned clothes immmediately, and point out any problems right away. If clothing comes back damaged and the drycleaner is to blame, you are entitled to recover the value of the garment's remaining life expectancy.
