1) No More At-Home Cleaning Summer Clothes
In the summer, we tend to spend a lot more time outdoors. Due to this, you may notice how frequently you wash your summer clothing. However, washing your clothing over and over again in rough at-home washing machines can take a toll on the delicate fabrics of your garments. Constantly washing your expensive summer dresses, skirts, tank tops, rompers and jumpsuits can lead to fabric deterioration. This will overall shorten the lifespan of your most loved summer clothes.
Your drying machines can take a huge toll as well, causing further fabric and material deterioration. Yes, drying your summer clothing outside on a line is certainly eco-friendly, however exposing colored fabrics to harsh sunlight causes the bright colors to fade. This won’t happen in a blink of an eye, but you will surely begin to notice changes within a few hours due to exposure to UV rays.

2) Sweat Will Set In Summer Clothes
Yes, your body keeps you cool in the summer by sweating. However, all that sweat can cause negative impacts on your favorite summer clothes. The bacteria that is in the sweat is what tends to cause the damage to your clothing. Our sweat contains something known as urea, which is what causes yellow stains over time . Along with this, certain types of bacteria eat sweat compounds, causing discoloration and bad odors to our garments, causing them to weaken in the long-run.
Believe it or not, some of the chemicals used in deodorant, such as aluminum, react with the compounds in sweat, which results in those yellow stains as well. The real cause of these yellowish stains is a mixture of the minerals (salt) in sweat mixing with the ingredients in antiperspirant or deodorant (aluminum).
Bringing your most loved summer clothing to Avon Cleaners today! We promise that they will undergo the most professional dry cleaning process,. We will ensure that the bacteria doesn’t cause any severe damage to your fabrics.

3) Protect Delicate Fabrics
Certain delicate fabrics and materials such as cotton, lace, linen, silk and rayon are best left to the professionals to clean. These fabrics are very delicate and often used for warm-weather clothing. You will find these materials in jumpsuits, rompers, flowy dresses and wedding dresses. These garments are most often worn in the summer time. Though some people prefer to hand-wash their clothing, only a professional dry cleaner will know how to remove stains and keep colors bright and crisp without causing any damage to them.
