Q- Does frequent drycleaning shorten the life of a garment?
A- On the contrary, frequent cleaning prolongs the life of a grament. Not only do stains set with age, making the garment unwearable, but the ground-in dirt and soil act as an abrasive, like sandpaper, causing rapid wear of fibers. Also, insects are attracted to soils such as food, beverages, feces, perspiration, and oils from hair on clothes and will cause further damage.
Research shows that various drycleaning processes have no negative effect on the properties of woll in men's suit fabrics.
