At A Touch of Class in Ross and San Rafael, our team offers both high-end dry cleaning and laundering services for clothing and linens. However, we understand that many people confuse the two services or believe that they are one and the same. In fact, dry cleaning and laundering are not the same, they are actually quite different ways of washing your clothes or linens to keep them fresh and like new. There are positive and negative aspects of both drying cleaning and laundering and one option may be better for a specific piece of clothing or linen than the other.
Ultimately, the most basic difference between dry cleaning and laundering is the fact that dry cleaning does not use water and laundering does. Most dry cleaning services use a chemical solvent to remove stains; while laundering is more like washing your clothes - this service uses soaps and detergents and it tends to be more gentle on your clothing.
Dry cleaning offers the following advantages and disadvantages:
For different reasons, laundering also offers advantages and disadvantages, like the following:
Which Is The Better Option?
In reality, it really comes down to your preference and the clothing or linen item that you need to be washed. If the item has a deep oil-based stained, our team would recommend a high-end dry cleaning service. However, if you want your everyday work clothing washed, we would suggest a laundering service if the clothing is free of dark or deep stains. For all questions or concerns about dry cleaning or laundering, please never hesitate to ask our professional and experienced team at A Touch of Class. We will be more than willing to help you choose the best option for you and your clothing, and explain the pricing of both options.
