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
"I send in suits for work and I always end up having them do it in 24 hours, so they're really good at doing things overnight and getting them back to me straight away - all my personal clothing, plus all my work clothing, as well; all my housing things, all my bed linens - they do everything. Also, I've had to move out, because I'm renovating my house, and they very kindly kept a lot of laundry there, like my curtains and sheets, so I swapped them over as and when need be."
