A Simple Tip for Wrinkle – Free Packing… Our Plastic Bag
There’s not much more to say other than the fact that simply putting each garment you’re worried about into one of our plastic bags means you’ll arrive with all your clothes wrinkle-free and ready to wear.
If you’re interested in the ‘why,’ it’s because the plastic creates a bubble of air that protects the item from being crushed when compressed. This is one of the reasons we use them to package your clothes in the first place!
We can safely recommend this because at Shaffer’s we do not use the toxic chemical PERC. If using a dry cleaner that still uses PERC, we always recommend taking clothes out of the plastic bags immediately to avoid toxic chemical residue and odors lingering on your garments.
So, whatever you drop off for cleaning in preparation of your vacation – it’s ok to leave it in our packaging and place it in your suitcase as is, a la Martha Stewart .
And here’s one more tip! When you are heading home, tie a knot in the bottom of the bag and presort the laundry so the loads are ready to right into your washing machine. Of course one bag should also hold all the clothing that needs to go to the dry cleaner!
