Check out this post from Savvy Sugar to learn how to save more money on expensive dry cleaning.
Do you feel like you've gone on a shopping spree every time you go to the dry cleaners? While it's nice to have shirts and pants hung so crisp, fresh and clean, dry cleaning service costs a pretty penny. If you are looking to save some bucks each month on your laundry, consider implementing these tips to save on dry cleaning.
Scope the Land
Rather than go to the closest dry cleaners out of convenience, do a little research on surrounding stores. Perhaps only a block away, you'll find a better deal that also offers a frequent cleaner punch card.
Limit the Clothes You Take
You can hand wash most cashmere, wool, satin, silk and cotton clothes. However, always take suede, velvet, fur and leather to the professionals.
Dry Clean at Home
Spot treat stains, then throw garments into the dryer with a dry cleaning sheet like Woolite Dry Cleaner's Secret or Bounce 15 Minute Dry Cleaner. FYI, these at-home products are not intended for heavily stained clothing. Instead, they work to keep products fresh in between professional dry cleaning sessions.
