WHAT IS DRY CLEANING?
Dry cleaning is a cleaning process that uses solvents instead of water to remove stains and degrease textiles. It is particularly used to treat fabrics that do not withstand regular water washing.

SHOULD I REMOVE MY FRESHLY CLEANED GARMENTS FROM THE DRY CLEANER PLASTIC BAG?
Your garment is wrapped in plastic by the dry cleaner to protect it until it is returned to you. Before storing your garment, remove the plastic bag to let fibres breathe. For practical and ecological reasons, we recommend you to use the reusable cover to protect the garments you only wear occasionally and thereby reduce plastic waste.
CAN FREQUENT DRY CLEANING WEAKEN THE FIBRES OF MY CLOTHES?
Dry cleaning helps maintain your garments’ original beauty longer than water-based domestic washing would do.
Dry cleaning limits wear and tear on your items as this process enables a limited opening of fibres, preserving thereby their original appearance, which is not the case with a classic domestic washing.
MY GARMENT’S CARE LABEL SPECIFIES IT SHOULD BE WASHED BY HAND. STILL, CAN I WASH IT USING THE DELICATE CYCLE?
It is important to follow the washing instructions on your garment’s care label. The wool cycle and the delicate cycle in cold water are not necessarily suitable for your item. The number of turns or drum rotations involved in the rinsing or spin-drying process also impact on the fibre wear and tear or damage. In case of doubt, do not hesitate to ask our experts for advice at your local 5àsec dry cleaning shop.
DO YOU PROVIDE AN ALTERATIONS SERVICE?
