Want to get brighter whites from your wash? Here's some advice from Steve, our resident fabric care expert.
Only use as much washing powder as you really need, because too much will degrade fabrics and make them turn grey.
Bear in mind that these days, manufacturers will often put in optical brighteners. The garment, when new, will look really, really bright - but that's an artificial colour, so don't feel as if you're doing anything wrong if it dims after the first wash.Read more care tips
Review of Swans Dry Cleaners5 Swans Dry Cleaners Business
"It's the attention to detail. I brought in a jacket and forgot to tell them that there was one of the buttons in the outer pocket that needed to be put on. Since I forgot to mention it, I thought, well, it will get lost, forget it, I'll get a new button. When I got it back, the button was sewn on. I said, 'How did you find that?' and they said, 'Didn't you tell us?' I said, 'No'. 'Well, the button was there, there was one missing, and so we put it on.' I would really call it mindfulness: it is more than just attention to detail and doing a professional job. It is more like trying to be in the customer's shoes."
