Wash and Fold Service

A typical working, American mom will spend a total of five monironing.

A typical working, American mom will spend a total of five months of her life doing laundry in the time it takes one child to turn 18.  Another 156 days of her life are spent ironing. Granted, laundry is so much easier now-a-days with the automatic washing machine.  No longer do we having to break our backs over wash boards or rocks in the creek out back.  Still, life isn’t as simple as it was back in those days and more is needing to be accomplished in a shorter amount of time.

Emptying out pockets, pairing up socks and hunting for elusive underwear under a bed takes up a large chunk of time.  55 percent of the population has forgotten clothes in the washing machine which means re-washing.  That’s more time, more detergent, and more water being used  Marky’s Cleaners in Denton Texas has a solution!

Dress Shirt Folding Services

Travel is folded shirts

Travel is usually inevitable.  Whether for business or pleasure, the key to a good trip is packing properly. Bringing a variety of clothing can give you a better selection so you are comfortable and prepared of whatever comes up.  Business trips happen.  Garment bags are big and bulky, and really don’t do much to preserve the integrity of the clothing inside when jammed in the overhead bin of a plane.  So what do you do?

Allow Champion Cleaners to fold those items for you.  This saves you the headache of trying to jam everything in your suitcase.  With all your items neatly folded and suitcase ready, all you need to do is stack and go.  From Button up shirts, polos, and slacks, we can make packing your dress shirts and your casual shirts a breeze.

Be Photogenic with Proper Dry Cleaning and Garment Selection

photogenic
It’s inevitable that someone will at some point snap a picture of you. Sometimes you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the resulting photo, but more often than not, you will find it repulsive. While the world is sprinkled with folks who always seem to take a great picture, most of us struggle and often require multiple takes before finding a photo that is suitable to be seen.

Being Photogenic is not about being a beauty queen or king. It refers more to being able to highlight your attractive attributes in photos. Knowing what angles complement your face, knowing what you look like when you smile, and wearing the right outfit all play a part in the making of the perfect photo. Even when not under the scrutiny of a camera, knowing how to highlight your best attributes can be a huge benefit. As a Dry Cleaners in Denton Texas, our forte is clothing of all kinds. Posing for pictures can be learned through trial and error, or by a professional photographer, but we can give you the rundown on clothes!

Selecting the right clothing can be difficult. Color and clothing style are two of the most important factors for a great photo.

stripes phixr Stay away from patterns that are overly busy. They can really distract from the main focus- you! It’s best to also avoid stripes, vertical or horizontal.

Since we are three dimensional, placing our image in a two dimensional format is already going to give bizarre illusions. Any kind of stripe will only enhance that illusion. For example, horizontal stripes tend to make something appear wider while vertical stripes can give the illusion of elongation. You may think that is a good thing, and there are always exceptions to the rule, but you’ll just have to see what works for you. For those of us who prefer to present ourselves with their natural attributes, vertical stripes can minimize the bust or elongate the torso leading to an undesired unproportional effect.

It’s also best to avoid a single color, especially one that may match the background. This can make you appear bland and washed out. Get to know your skin tone and pick colors that complement you and your surroundings. Hair color can also play a part in selecting the best colors on you. Again, trial and error may be your best bet.

Digital cameras have difficulty properly displaying closely spaced stripes, small patterns, and the colors black, white, and red. Such bold colors can throw off the contrast making you appear strangely colored. Pay careful attention to the condition of your clothes. Worn or faded clothing can give the wrong impression. For photo-worthy clothes, be sure to always have them properly cared for by a Professional Dry Cleaners.

Style of clothing is an equally important factor to consider. Avoid trendy clothing that can date the photo. The last thing you’d want is someone looking at this picture in a few years from now gawking over your huge sleeves or pronounced shoulder pads like we do over photos from the 80’s. Stick with simple, classic pieces.

Following our tips can ensure the best photo experience. Though we can’t guarantee you’ll come out looking like a movie star, paying careful attention to what you wear is a major step in creating a great picture. Take time to find what works for you; take time to ensure your clothes look their best by bringing them to us at Marky’s Dry Cleaners in Denton Texas.

Restoring Clothes After Flood, Fire, and Other Disasters

shrt mold

Should you replace or restore clothing that has fallen victim to a flood, fire, or other natural disaster?

I would suggest restoring it. Instead of replacing your entire wardrobe and household fabrics, you can often restore them to the same condition or nearly the same as before the disaster for a fraction of the price.

Some people have contacted us after having spent days washing and rewashing clothing at home.  Clothes that have molded due to the moistness of post-flood conditions and smoke damaged items will not give up their stains and smells easily.

We provide expert dry cleaning and restoration services in Texas for clothing and other textiles damaged by smoke, water and mold.  We work with the following groups to restore garments and other textile products to their pre-loss condition:

 

  1. Insurance Companies
  2. Restoration Building Contractors
  3. Victims of Disasters

Our services include odor remediation, soot removal from smoke and fire disasters, and mold remediation from prolonged wet conditions.

The types of items we can restore after a disaster include:

  • Clothing
  • Wedding gowns
  • Uniforms
  • Bulk laundry items
  • Household textiles, including bed linens, sheets, comforters, and bedspreads
  • Towels
  • Draperies
  • Rugs and carpet
  • Furniture
  • Vintage and heirloom garments

 

We also clean and restore these items to achieve their pre-loss condition:

  • Leather and suede garments
  • Shoes and boots, from high fashion shoes, to work boots and sneakers
  • Purses
  • Belts
  • Hats

Marky’s Dry Cleaners of Denton, Texas helps you Removing Urine stains from Vinyl floors

wet floor sign
Karen asks: We have vinyl tile in our bathroom. A family member struggles with incontinence at times, and there is a dark brown stain around the toilet. I think if may be due to urine/feces being on the floor. Is there any way to remove the stain without damaging the tile? The rest of the floor is fine; it’s this one area that is the problem.

You Will Need

Rubber Gloves
Paper Towels
Broom
Vinegar, 1 cup
1 Gallon bucket
Liquid Dish Washing Detergent, 2 tsp.
Warm Water
Long Spoon
Brush with soft bristles
Abrasive Sponge
Multiple Washcloths
Rubbing Alcohol
Baking Soda

Steps

Wearing the rubber gloves, pick up any excess urine and feces with the paper towels
and dispose of properly. The gloves will help to protect against bacteria.

Sweep the area with the broom to rid it of any excess dirt and dust. This will
ensure you have the most direct access to any stains.

Mix together the cup of vinegar, the dish washing detergent, and warm water in a
bucket. Stir with the long spoon, and be careful not to create too many suds.

Dip the soft bristled brush into the mixture, and scrub the stain. Then, rinse with
clean water. If there is still a stain, use the more abrasive method described next.

Mix equal parts water and baking soda to create a paste. Spread the paste over the
stained area and allow to set for 10 to 15 minutes.

Scrub with the abrasive sponge, then wipe clean with a dry cloth.
Finally, scrub the area with a clean cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol.

Additional Tips and Advice

Remove the stain as soon as possible, as letting it sit for too long may ruin your floor.
Just for the sake of clarity, never mix bleach and vinegar. Using bleach on your floor
is OK, but be sure to NOT add vinegar, as it will create a chlorine gas.
