Got a stain on your dinner jacket or cocktail dress? Here's some advice from Ernesta, one of our artisan cleaners.
Don't be tempted to rub away at the spot where you dropped a canapé on your Chanel dress. Most evening wear fabrics cnntain natural fibres - like velvet or silk - and any dyes can run very easily.
If you spill something on yourself and then try to rub it with water, you won't get rid of the stain - you'll just add a watermark around it, and you might even remove some of the colour from the garment. It's better to leave the stain alone and take it to your professional cleaner.Read more care tips
Review of Swans Dry Cleaners5 Swans Dry Cleaners Business
"The reason I went to Swans is my previous dry cleaner kept losing my clothes! Steve has been absolutely fantastic. He does my duvets, he does my suits - I have some very expensive suits - he does them very well. It is a personal service. He does look after you - he'll even deliver to your door, or pick up, so it's very good."
