Cleaning-Yoga-Pants

How to Properly Maintain and Clean Yoga Pants

Yoga pants are made of a variety of new fabric combinations that enhance the overall form-fitting look.  The innovative fabrics of today actually absorb your sweat, taking it away from your body.  With that said, these same fabrics tend to hold onto body odors and smells resulting from a strenuous workout when they are not laundered properly or they are not completely dried.  Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations our team of specialists wants to share with our valued clients the importance of proper laundering and how to clean yoga pants and extend their life expectancy.

Advancements in Fabrics and Cleaning Procedures

There have been a number of advancements in technology with regard to the proper care and maintenance of gym and other work out clothing articles.  One of the most recent advancements is that of adding microscopic particles to the yoga pants such as silver.  Since silver is an antibacterial element that can kill germs that are present on your body surface, it is an ideal addition to work out and gym clothing.  Trendy yoga pants are primarily composed of lycra and nylon combined with other stretchy fabrics that require specialized washing and maintenance to avoid foul odors from setting in.  When yoga pants are not laundered properly and not dried appropriately, they will present with a number of problems, including the development of odors which are allowed to set in as a result of improper laundering.

HOW WE PROPERLY CLEAN YOUR YOGA PANTS

Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners our team of dedicated specialists is on hand to take care of all your athletic garments.  We fully understand the laundering process and are equipped to handle your every need.  We take every precaution when cleaning your yoga pants, which includes fine tuning our everyday industrial strength washing machines and spin cycles accordingly.  We give focus to the appropriate drum rotations and wash times as well as the temperature of the water and any detergents or solutions we use.  We ensure that the water temperature is warm enough for enzymes to work at their best and we also monitor the content of the water so as to avoid staining and increase the life expectancy of the garment.

Our team of specialists ensures that we use the correct timing on all our laundry processes to avoid odors from attaching themselves once again to the threads in the fabrics.  When proper laundering is not performed odors are actually baked back into the fabrics when they are dried at high temperatures.  With that in mind, we use powerful enzyme-based detergents that thoroughly remove the odors and prevent them from reforming in your yoga pants.

Lastly, when we clean yoga pants here at Jimmy’s Cleaners, we give much focus to the drying process.  For proper cleaning we must control the heat and humidity involved in the process.  Improper drying methods can result in damaged fabrics and a minimized lifespan of your garments.

THE TEAM YOU CAN TRUST

If you are athletic and commonly wear work out or yoga pants, then be sure to bring your garments on down to our trusted facility for all your cleaning and drying needs.  Our team of experts here at Jimmy’s Cleaners are committed to providing only the highest quality cleaning services to all our valued clients and are on hand to meet your every need.  With not enough hours in a day, why not take advantage of our convenient drop off and pick up services when it’s time to have your workout garments cleaned.   The folks here at Jimmy’s Cleaners look forward to serving you and to providing you with state of the art, affordable services to not only clean yoga pants but all your workout garments as well.  Don’t delay.  Put your trust into the hands of our highly skilled and experienced cleaning specialists today.

Deodorant stains on shirt

What to Do with Those Unsightly Deodorant Stains

Whether winter, spring, summer or fall, most of us don’t start the day out without putting on our deodorant or antiperspirant.  However, most people are completely unaware of the effects that these hygiene products can have on your clothing.  In some cases, they can permanently damage garments making them unsightly and unwearable.   Excessive use of these hygiene products can result in deodorant stains on some of your favorite articles of clothing.

WHAT CAUSES DEODORANT STAINS

Deodorant stains are the result of overuse of deodorants and their active ingredients.  These hygiene products contain aluminum salts that leave chalky white marks on your skin’s surface which, over a period of time, can easily transfer to the garments you are wearing and leave them stained with the same chalky white substance.  When garments are not regularly cleaned, a buildup of chalky residue occurs resulting, over time, in damage to fabrics of all types.

HOW TO PREVENT DAMAGE

There are a few important and simple steps you can take to prevent any deodorant stains and chemical damage to your garments as a result of using these favored hygiene products.  Our team of specialists wants to share some of those important steps with you in our efforts to help you minimize stains and damage caused to garments.

  • First and foremost, you may want to choose an invisible solid product as opposed to the typical white solid products on the market. Invisible solids are a lot less likely to leave any marks or stains of any type on your clothing.
  • When applying your deodorant be sure to only apply a thin layer since overuse of the product allows it to rub off onto your garments much easier. Be sure to limit the amount you use.
  • Always wait at least a good 30 seconds after applying your product before you put on your favorite garments. These short 30 seconds give your body sufficient time to absorb the deodorant thereby keeping it from transferring over to your clothing items.
  • Make it a point to regularly shave your armpits so that when you apply your deodorant there is little to no hair for it to cling to. This will drastically minimize the amount of product that actually transfers to your clothes and helps to minimize deodorant stains.
  • Finally, be sure to launder your clothing items regularly and as soon as possible after wearing the garments. If your garment has a deodorant stain,  we suggest you apply some laundry detergent directly to the stained area and rub it gently, then follow up with a routine wash in the highest water temperature that is safe and suitable for the garment fabric or bring them on down to our trusted team of dry cleaning specialists who will take care of your every need.

Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations our team of friendly professionals is dedicated and committed to maintaining the overall integrity of all your cherished garments.  When your clothing items suffer with deodorant stains, it is important not to delay, but rather bring them to our facility as soon as possible and let us remove the stains for you.  We fully understand that clothing items can be quite costly and many times a favorite piece of clothing gets stained or damaged.  That’s where the professionals here at Jimmy’s Cleaners come in.  We are on hand to provide you with the highest quality dry cleaning services this side of Franklin and stand ready to meet your every dry cleaning or alteration needs, and that includes the removal of deodorant stains.

Why not take advantage of our weekly specials, or even our convenient pick up and drop off services today?  Simply give a shout out to one of our team members and schedule your laundry pick up.  Don’t let deodorant stains ruin your favorite clothing items, but rather put your trust into the hands of some of the absolute best dry-cleaning specialists in the industry.  We look forward to serving you and send along wishes for a safe and happy holiday season.

Garment Tag

My Garment Label Says, “Spot Clean Only”

To the average person, a garment label is merely an annoying piece of fabric on our clothing items that more often than not gets in the way.  However, it is more than just a piece of fabric, rather it is a means of sending an important message to the garment owner.  A garment label actually offers a description of the clothing article and often plays a significant role in whether or not a consumer actually buys the product.  Whether, hand wash, dry clean only, or spot clean only, garment labels each serve their own purpose and the team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners & Alterations want to share a bit about garment labels with you.

WHAT EXACTLY IS THE PURPOSE OF A GARMENT LABEL?

A garment label tells the consumer what type of materials have been used in the manufacture of the garment. They also tell you how to take proper care of the item and include any other specialized instructions about the fabric or the garment you may need to know.  The label typically tells you what brand it is with many manufacturers using their own specialized labels to help consumers identify their distinct product.  In addition, garment labels could be specially designed by the manufacturers since customized labels add a bit to the style and the appearance of the garment.  Many consumers actually rely upon garment labels to identify specific brands that identify the quality and unique design of a product.

SPOT CLEAN ONLY

This type of garment care label is typically found on much more expensive, upscale designer clothing.  Many times these specialized garments are actually handmade and very delicate, usually including some kind of lace or other type of decorative fabric trim.  When the spot clean only label is applied, its primary purpose is to tell the consumer that the specific garment cannot be safely put into any type of a commercial washing machine, but rather that it must be hand cleaned using a spotting agent coupled with steam and air drying.

Because both the fabric and the procedure are extremely delicate and sensitive, the team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners & Alterations highly recommends that you leave the spot clean only garments up to our professionals.  We will communicate with our clients any concerns we may have or any possible outcomes that could result from our handling the garments and if there are any risks involved at all.  For this reason, we will require your acknowledgement that there could be a potential final outcome of the garment.

In addition, our skilled professionals suggest before you purchase any garment, and especially upscale garments with spot clean only labels you might want to talk with a store employee about proper cleaning of the clothing item.  You should also inquire as to whether or not the item can be returned if you are not able to spot clean it to your satisfaction so as to protect your investment.

If you have garments with specialized care labels, whether spot clean only or dry clean only, then surely you have come to the right place.  Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners & Alterations we are committed and dedicated to providing all our valued Brentwood, Spring Hill, Franklin and Thompson’s Station customers with the highest quality dry cleaning and alterations services this side of Tennessee.  We take pride in our quality services, affordable prices and our very attractive turnaround times as well as our weekly specials and our convenient drop off and pick up services.

If you are in need of dry cleaning services, tailoring or alterations, then look no further than the friendly team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners & Alterations.  Come on down to our facility today and take advantage of our weekly specials.

Useful Tips for Keeping All Your Leather Garments in Tip-Top Condition

Leather certainly comes in a whole lot of trendy looks and styles, whether for the musician in your family, the typical biker or just your average joe.  Season to season chic leather styles make their way to the top of the garment charts.  Your everyday leather manufacturing companies produce a variety of extraordinary leather garments from dresses, leggings and sports jackets, to vests, coats and a wide range of other types of outerwear for both men and women alike.

Whatever your style, whatever your taste, whatever your garment, the folks here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations want to share with our valued clients some very useful tips on how to keep all your leather looking stylish, luxurious and as trendy and chic as possible.  When you know how to provide appropriate care and maintenance to your leather garments, rest assured you are able to enjoy them year after year and ensure their enhanced lifespan.   Here are some useful tips and ideas with regard to the care and maintenance of your cherished leather:

  • If ever your leather gets wet, be sure to blot it with a dry white cloth, hang it on a wide padded hanger, and then allow it to dry further in a cool, dry place. Never, ever put our leather into a clothes dryer.
  • When wearing upper body leather garments, be sure to wear a scarf of some sort around your neck to keep from damaging or soiling the collar with the oils from your body.
  • Never apply adhesive badges or pins of any type on leather.
  • Avoid filling the pockets of your leather coats or jackets with heavy items such as cell phones, wallets or keys since they can easily stretch out the leather and ruin its form.
  • Do not use saddle soap on your leather garments since it can cause a great deal of staining and/or streaking.
  • When wearing your leather clothing items, be sure to avoid using hair sprays, perfumes or colognes. You do not want these substances to come in contact with your expensive leather items.
  • For those leather garments that become a bit wrinkled, be sure to press them using your iron’s coolest setting. Use a heavy craftlike paper as an effective pressing board, and be sure to perform a spot test on a small area first. Never, ever try removing wrinkles with direct steam.
  • If you have matching leather pieces that need cleaning, be sure to clean all the matching pieces the same way at the same time because variations in color can occur and you would certainly want those variations to be the same for each matching piece.
  • Do not store your leather garments in plastic bags since they can create moisture inside the bags and cause mildew or mold to grow. Be sure to use fabric bags that are breathable when storing all your favorite leather pieces.

The team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners hopes you have found our care and maintenance tips and ideas useful.  We also want to remind our valued customers that should your leather garments become stained it is imperative that you have them cleaned as soon as possible by professional leather cleaners like the specialists we have here at Jimmy’s Cleaners.  Do not try to remove stains yourself because you are apt to remove the color as well and it can be nearly impossible to restore the original color of your leather fabric.

We also want to remind you that, though leather does not often look dirty, it does, in fact, still get dirty which is why we recommend having your leather garments professionally cleaned at least every other season. For all your leather cleaning and all your professional dry-cleaning needs, you can always rely upon the professionals here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations.

 

Simple Tips for Sweater Care

Well, fall has arrived, which means its everyone’s favorite sweater season.  The days are much shorter and the nights offer us cool comfortable temperatures.  People find themselves situated by the outdoor fireplace or fire pit spending time with family and friends.  With all that said the folks here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations want to share with our valued clients some very simple but useful tips for sweater care this fall that will surely help to keep your sweaters looking like new while extending their life span as well.

SIMPLE BUT USEFUL TIPS FOR YOUR SWEATER CARE

  • Never hang your sweaters, but rather fold them neatly and place them in your drawers or the top of your closet space. Avoid squishing your sweaters into tight places as well;
  • Whenever having to remove lint, hair, dog fur, or even fuzzy little balls from your sweaters always use the softest brush possible;
  • If your sweater seems to have lost its original shape, then head on down to our dry-cleaning facility so our highly experienced team of techs can revive your sweater and bring it back to its original shape;
  • Be sure to adhere to whatever cleaning instructions are printed on your garment’s tag and remember if it specifically says, ‘dry clean only’ then again we highly recommend you put your trust into the our dedicated team of dry cleaning specialists here at Jimmy’s Cleaners;
  • Avoid wearing rough fabrics underneath your sweaters and heavy coats atop of them since both can contribute to a minimized lifespan of your cherished sweaters;
  • Finally, be sure that you have your sweaters properly cleaned before you store them away at the end of the season.

HELPFUL TIPS FOR THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO HAND WASH THEIR SWEATERS

  • When hand washing start by turning your sweater inside out so as to protect the delicate outside fibers;
  • Fill your washing basin or sink with appropriate water temperatures that will be included in the care instructions on your sweater’s garment tag. Add a very small amount of a quality clothing detergent and mix it thoroughly with the water in the sink or basin.  Avoid creating suds.
  • Gently submerge the sweater into the water and allow it to soak for at least 20 minutes without kneading, squishing or scrunching the sweater;
  • After soaking, rinse the sweater with clear tap water until there are no bubbles present. When rinsing your sweater be sure not to pull the sweater out of the water, but rather hold the sweater with your hands underneath the soaked garment and lift it out of the water using this technique.  Lifting rather than pulling the sweater out of the water will avoid stretching the garment and its fibers and disrupting its natural shape.
  • Lay the sweater with its front side up, on a dry towel and blot the sweater gently. Then carefully reshape the sweater to its original shape on the towel, buttoning any buttons, placing the sweater collars back into shape, and straightening out the sleeves accordingly.
  • Finally, allow your hand-washed sweater to dry overnight on the towel surface. In the morning, flip the sweater over carefully, blot it again, reshape it again and allow the other side to dry throughout the daytime and into the nighttime if need be.

The team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations hope you have found our simple tips for sweater care useful.  Remember, if hand-washing is not your area of expertise, then be sure to bring your favorite sweaters and other garments down to our trusted dry-cleaning facility and let our experienced team take care of all your dry-cleaning needs.  Be sure to take advantage of our weekly specials and our convenient drop-off and pick-up services as well.  The folks here at Jimmy’s Cleaners send along wishes for a safe and healthy fall season to all our valued clients!

To most of us, doing laundry just is a never-ending task.  We wear a different change of clothes every day, which means we have to wash them, dry them, fold them and put them away often.  Most people don’t realize that by repeating this cycle over and over again, you are actually damaging all your favorite clothes.   With that said the team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations wanted to share some important insight with all our valued clients.

Alterations – Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations, we have an on-site tailor who is on hand to take care of your every alteration.  Whether shortening your favorite slacks, repairing that rip in your high school jeans, fixing a zipper or adding a button, our tailors handle it all.

Tips for Removing Grass Stains On Your Favorite Blue Jeans

Typically, grass stains can be easily removed by simply washing your blue jeans according to their specific care instructions.  However, often times, these stains are allowed to set for an extended period of time making them incredibly difficult to remove or eliminate.  With that said, the experts here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations want to share with our valued clients some helpful tips and home remedies for removing those stubborn stains from your favorite pair of blue jeans.

REMOVING STUBBORN GRASS STAINS

You should always treat stains as soon as possible by applying a small amount of cool water and laundry detergent to them.  Allowing them to set without pretreatment will make removing the stains a whole lot harder.  In some cases, you may need to use an all fabric bleach or an oxygen bleach.  However, the best solution for removing stubborn set in grass stains is to bring your garments down to our trusted facility and let our team of specialists take care of your every need.

Our team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations takes care of dry cleaning needs for just about every type of  ‘accident’ including removing stubborn grass stains.  We take pride in our team of trained and certified techs who specialize in removing stains by using a wide range of professional garment treatments.  We also offer convenient drop off and pick up services to alleviate even more of your challenges and time-consuming tasks.  We will pick up your garments, remove the stains for you, and deliver them back to you looking just like new.

HOME REMEDIES YOU CAN TRY

There are a variety of home remedies you can also try, some of which work effectively, others might not work as well.  They include:

  • Vinegar – Soak your grass stained jeans in vinegar for a mere hour and then wash and dry them as you normally would.
  • Hydrogen Peroxide – Be cautious when trying this home remedy because peroxide can actually alter the existing color of your jeans or garment. Spot check a small corner of the garment first.  Apply the hydrogen peroxide to the stained area before you wash it and then launder it the same way you always do.
  • Baking Soda – Apply a paste like mixture of water and baking soda to your stain. Scrub a few drops of vinegar utilizing a brush.  The mixture of the two together will cause a fizzing reaction that actually lifts the stain out of your jeans.
  • Rubbing Alcohol – Soak the stained area of your jeans for about 30 minutes in rubbing alcohol before a usual washing.

These are just a few home remedies you can try, but again we highly suggest you simply bring your stained jeans or garments down to the folks here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and let us take care of all your laundering needs.  If you are in need of specialized laundering treatments, alterations or need to have those stubborn grass stains removed from your favorite pair of jeans, then we are the team for you.  Our team of specialists is committed to providing all our valued clients top-rated services at affordable prices and meeting with the individual timelines of all our clients as well.  Why let your laundry set for days on end, or let those nasty stains set in, when you can rely on the professionals here at Jimmy’s Cleaners.  Don’t delay.  Either bring your garments down to our facility or contact us to schedule a convenient drop off and pick up service today.  We look forward to serving you and to providing the highest quality dry cleaning and alteration services this side of Franklin.

  1. Best Dry CleaningMuch to your surprise clothing care labels are not always correct – Manufacturers are required to provide reasonable care instructions on their products, but are not required by the Federal Trade Commission’s Care Label Rules to perform adequate testing before providing clothing and garment care labels.  With that said, many manufacturers do not perform testing on garments prior to attaching their care labels.
  2. Some stains are impossible to remove – To effectively remove a stain is entirely dependent upon the nature of the stain, what type of fabric the garment is, and how colorfast the dye is. The professionals here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations are trained and skilled to identify various stains and fabrics and in taking the most effective approach to removing the stains.  However, it is a fact that some stains such as dried paints and inks that have set for a long period of time can be nearly impossible to remove.
  3. Contrary to rumors, clothes that are dry cleaned do not wear out faster than other clothes – In all the years of dry cleaning performance and research, there has never been any evidence that specialized processes used for dry cleaning clothes wears out the fabrics or reduces lifespan of any garments. On the flip side of that, there is evidence that if a garment should be professionally dry cleaned on a regular basis and you fail to adhere to those instructions, then the lifespan of the garment can indeed be minimized.
  4. All types of garments, including shirts, can most assuredly shrink – If fabrics and materials are not adequately preshrunk or even if a portion of a garment has not been efficiently stabilized during the manufacturing process, the fact is that they can indeed shrink despite the claims often made that a particular fabric or material can never shrink.

We hope that these important facts help you to better understand dry cleaning and the composition of fabrics as well as the impact that certain types of stains can have on your garments.  There are many untruths out there when it comes to dry cleaning processes and the effects they can have on your garments.  For these reasons, the team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations thought these important truths and facts would be helpful to all our valued clients.

If you are in need of high quality dry cleaning services or alterations, then surely you have come to the right place.  Come on down to our facility and take advantage of our many services including our drop off and pick up services and our weekly specials.  We look forward to serving you and send along our wishes for a safe and happy summer season!
