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.

Mildew and Smoke Cleaning Techniques for Fabrics or Textiles

We can all agree that the unappealing smells of mildew and smoke in clothes, garments and other fabrics can be very difficult to remove.  The reason why the task can be so challenging is because these powerful odors easily become trapped within the fabrics and textiles, which ultimately makes it near to impossible to remove the smells with typical everyday cleaning techniques.  However, here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations our specialized mildew and smoke cleaning techniques utilizing ozone generators can remove these types of odors with the greatest of ease.

Oxygen as we all know it, exists in everyday living in the form of Ozone O2.  Ozone is the result of a chemical process called oxidation, which causes materials of various types when combined with oxygen to change its overall molecular presence.  Oxygen also has a reactive form of existence known as Ozone, O3, a presence that is a good deal more powerful and more reactive chemically than typical Ozone O2.

OZONE GENERATORS

Ozone generators function by taking dry air and passing it through an electrical field with a high frequency.  The electrical discharge then splits the oxygen molecule into two atoms.  These newly formed atoms then combine with another oxygen molecule that has not been split at all and together form what is known as an ozone.  When strong mildew or smoke odors that are deeply embedded in your garments, clothes or fabrics come in contact with the newly formed ozone oxidation reoccurs pulling the odors from the materials and eliminating them, while releasing the oxygen itself at the same time.

We all have been faced at one time or another with powerful, unappealing odors that get caught up in our clothes or other fabrics.  Often times when a disaster of sorts occurs, such as a flood typically the strong smell of mildew makes its presence known in garments, fabrics or carpets.  Should you fall prey to a fire, typically a heavy smell of smoke gets into drapes, carpets, clothing and other fabrics.  When this occurs, relying upon the professionals here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations, and our specialized mildew and smoke cleaning techniques is the perfect solution for you.  Our state of the art dry cleaning service utilizing ozone generators has proven to be not only effective in eliminating the powerful smells of smoke and mildew from textiles and clothing, but also has proven to protect your fabrics overall.

Should you find yourself faced with unappealing, hard to remove, mildew or smoke odors in your clothing, carpets, garments or any other fabrics or textiles, then surely you have come to the right place.  The dedicated dry-cleaning specialists here at Jimmy’s Cleaners are committed to providing all our valued clients with the most effective and affordable dry cleaning services no matter what your fabric or garment needs may be.  For the highest quality mildew and smoke cleaning techniques this side of Franklin, be sure to reach out to the experts here at Jimmy’s Cleaners.  While you’re at it, take advantage of our premier drop off and pick up services, our shirt laundry weekly specials, our affordable alterations and even our state of the art wedding gown preservation services.

How to Take Care of That Prom Dress Stain

Well its that time of year for Junior and Senior Proms and for spending lots of money on the perfect prom dress and tux.  But what do you do when you are enjoying your prom date and activities and right in the middle of that exciting dinner you drop food on your dress and are left with an unsightly prom dress stain? 

The answer is simple.  Many prom dress stains can be easily removed if they are caught immediately and are properly treated.  The ultimate goal is to either hide the unsightly stain until you can get your prom dress to the professional cleaners or to remove the stain altogether.  With that said, the professionals here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations want to provide you with some simple stain removing tips.  All too often people rub stains with all types of mixtures in their efforts to remove them as quickly as possible.  However, this typically makes the matter at hand worse because it will most likely pull color from the garment fabric and create a permanent unattractive water ring or may even make a hole in that delicate, expensive prom garment.

While at your prom, follow these simple tips below to remove stains:

  • Brentwood Shirt Cleaning ServicesBlot your prom dress stain with a white cloth or napkin so as to remove any excess live stain, but be sure not to rub at all.
  • Choose the appropriate stain removal technique from the list we will provide below that is specific to your prom stain.
  • Put a small amount of the specific solution onto a white napkin or cloth.
  • Blot, do not rub, by pressing the napkin or cloth onto the stain until the stain actually transfers over to the napkin or cloth.
  • Continue this process until the entire stain is removed.
  • If there is a hair dryer accessible to you, dry the area from the outside of the stain area to the center of the stain in circular motions.

Which Solution Do I Use?

Here are some of the most effective ‘fix-it’ solutions depending upon the type of stain.

  • For an oil-based stain such as salad dressing, mayonnaise or grease, mix a drop or two of either dishwashing soap, laundry detergent, pine-sol or shampoo into a cup of water.
  • For protein stains such as perspiration, blood or milk mix a drop of mild dish detergent and ammonia in a cup of water.
  • For plant based stains such as coffee, tea, wine or juice mix a drop or two of a mild dish detergent with either white vinegar or lemon juice
  • For makeup stains, start by scraping off any excess makeup that has made its way to your prom dress and blot it with a dry cloth. Then dab a very small amount of rubbing alcohol onto the stain and let it sit for about 4-5 minutes.  Then rinse it with a small amount of water and if possible dry the area with a hair dryer if one is accessible. If the stain is still there, then apply a mixture of water and dishwashing soap and let it dry for 15-20 minutes.  Then rinse it and dry it thoroughly.

Tips to Hide or Camouflage the Stain

It may be a good idea to simply try and camouflage the stain until you are able to bring it on down to our trusted dry-cleaning facility here at jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations.  You can simply dab baking soda, corn starch or baby powder onto the stain for an effective quick, camouflage fix.

If you have fallen victim to an unsightly prom dress stain don’t fret.  Try one of our easy tips above and then get your dress to our specialists as soon after the event as possible.  We will analyze the stain and apply the proper fix-it stain removal and cleaning method to safely remove the unwanted stain without causing any damage to your garment.

Proms are a truly memorable and cherished event, so don’t let that unsuspecting prom dress stain rob you of your once in a lifetime experience.  Rather, put your trust in the highly skilled and experienced specialists here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations once all the celebrating is over and let our team of specialists take care of all your stain removal needs.  We look forward to serving you and to providing you with the highest quality dry cleaning and alterations services this side of Tennessee!

Spring is the Ideal Time for Cleaning Window Treatments, Whether Draperies, Blinds or Curtains

Most homeowners agree that spring cleaning is an ideal way of prepping your home for the wonderful warm weather seasons ahead.  Home improvement tasks are many during this comfortable time of the year as are the all-important home cleaning chores.  With that said, spring is often looked upon as the ideal season for cleaning window treatments, whether draperies, blinds or curtains.  Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations our dedicated team of professionals are committed to providing all our valued clients with the highest quality dry cleaning services this side of Tennessee.

We know full well how important it is to routinely care for and maintain your home and certainly that includes  the proper care and maintenance of your windows and their dressings.  Many homeowners give favor to blinds these days, however, the number of households that still sport curtains and draperies are many as well.  The window treatments in your home gather dust, pollutants, dirt and all sorts of other particles more so than most other areas of your living space.  Although they can actually get quite dirty and grimy, window treatments are often overlooked or neglected by many homeowners when engaging in their typical spring or even fall cleaning.

Additionally, when you clean and care for your window treatments you add to the bright, healthy and airy atmospheres in your home.  Inappropriate or lack of care provided to your window treatments can result in dull, dingy, dirty and discolored fabrics or materials that take away from both the appeal and health of your home.

A final benefit of routinely cleaning and maintaining your window treatments season after season is the simple fact that it directly helps in protecting your window treatment investments.  Your curtains and draperies are truly investment pieces that you carefully and mindfully have chosen to enhance both the look and feel of your living space.  Properly and routinely caring for your window attire will enhance the lifespan of each and every one of these pieces.

Tips to Remove Pet Hair from Fabrics, Clothes and Furniture

Have you ever found yourself heading out the door in the morning on your way to work only to notice that your black pants are covered in dog hair?  Or maybe found yourself dropping on the sofa at the end of a hectic work day only to notice dog hair all over your back and legs when you stand up?  If you answered yes to either then be sure to read on.  Pet hair can certainly put a damper on your professional office look, not to mention it can cause a good deal of challenges to allergy sufferers.  With that said, the professionals here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations want to offer you some simple but effective tips on how to remove pet hair from your clothes, fabrics, and even your furniture.

Simple Techniques to Help Remove Pet Hair

Technique #1:  A Lint Roller – this is a pretty simple and practical way for removing pet hair.  A fresh scented lint roller when brushed across your clothes, your rugs or your sofa in a downward motion, can easily remove annoying pet hair.  The roller picks up a good deal of hair quickly and makes for a more professional look when running out the door.

Technique #2:  The Use of Vinegar – Vinegar actually helps to relax and soften the fibers in fabric, so when you wash your favorite clothes covered in pet hair, simply add a half cup of a white distilled vinegar to your rinse cycle.  You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how effective it really is.

Technique #3:   The Use of Moisture – There are a couple of ways that you can use moisture to benefit your hair covered fabrics and clothes.  Water typically adds weight to pet hair and, as a result, the hair does not stick to clothes or fabrics.  To accomplish this, start by putting on a pair or rubber gloves, dip your hands in a sink filled with water, and then shake off any excess water.  Next, rub your hair covered clothes or fabrics with the rubber gloves and watch the balls of dog and pet hair that you accumulate.  It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s effective.

Another way of using moisture is to take a damp sponge and rub it across the fabrics.  When you wipe the fabrics with the damp sponge you will collect the layers of pet hair easily.  Further, you can spray your clothes or fabrics with a slight bit of a water and fabric softener mixture and then use a cloth or sponge to wipe the hair away.

Technique #4:  Dry Cleaning – Here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations, we give favor to this technique.  Dry cleaning is the best all round technique and indeed the most efficient way to remove dog and pet hair from your clothes and various other fabrics and furniture.  Not only will our state of the art dry cleaning techniques remove the pet hair, but it will also remove dander as well.  Dander, as we all know, is a common allergen that affects a lot of people.  With our quality dry cleaning you take care of two birds with one stone – removing the pet hair and the harmful dander as well.

If your sofas are covered in your favorite pet’s hair, simply remove your slipcovers, and even roll up your throw rugs and take down your curtains or drapes, and head on over to our facility.  And, while you are at it, why not bring all your everyday typical laundry with you.  We will not only wash and dry your laundry, but fold it to perfection as well.

Pet hair can surely ruin the look of your work attire and though we have shared some pretty savvy tips on how to remove pet hair from fabrics and clothes here, you can always count on the professionals at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations to take care of all your pet hair needs.  Come on down to our facility today. We look forward to serving you and to providing you with the best and most affordable dry cleaning and alteration needs this side of Tennessee.

Winter is Over – Time to Preserve All Your Cherished Wool Garments

Now that winter has come to a close and spring has officially sprung, taking time out to properly care for your wool garments is something you don’t want to overlook.   Cleaning and properly storing your wool attire is essential to its overall health and lifespan.  With that said, the folks here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations are on hand to provide our top of the line dry cleaning, and storage services to all our valued clients.

Wool coats and garments can be quite costly, which is why we encourage all our clients to take a bit of time out of their hectic schedules to provide proper cleaning and storage for all those valued wool items.  Before packing your wool attire away for the season, be sure to come on down to our professional facility and have your garments dry cleaned and pampered.  Our experienced staff is here to provide you with all the care needed for your favorite winter coat and all those stylish winter sweaters.

Proper Care and Maintenance of your Wool Coats

One of the first important steps to take in administering appropriate care to your wool coats and garments is that of brushing them with a soft suede brush or even a lint brush, if you prefer.  This cleans the surface of your garment and should be performed thoroughly at the end of the season and well before storing your items away.

Once you have brushed your wool garments thoroughly you will then want to hang them on a sturdy hanger that can accommodate the weight of your coat or other wool garments.  Typically, we would recommend a wooden hanger or otherwise a broad, strong plastic hanger will do.  Once you have zipped the plastic bag you can then hang it in a comfortable spot in your closet, typically well in the back, where it can keep safe until the next cold weather season arrives. This will prevent moths and any other insects from getting at your wool coats and garments and destroying them.  If you do not have satisfactory storage for your wool items then we can store them here at our facility for you and will even enclose cedar chips in the garment bag to keep them safe, fresh and swelling clean.

If your wool coat or garment has fallen victim to spills of any type, then rest assured our qualified team of professionals are readily available to take care of all your needs.  It is important to understand that wool coats or wool garments should be blotted with an absorbent cloth or specialized paper towel in order to avoid any setting stains.  It is very important that spills are blotted and not rubbed since rubbing can cause the spilled substance to seep into the wool fabric and become saturated.  With wine, coffee or ink spills, however, we highly recommend you do not attempt to resolve these issues on your own, but rather rely upon our clothing professionals to administer proper care and treatment.   We are equipped to perform whatever services are needed while maintaining the shape, condition and overall integrity of your wool garments.

Costly as wool coats and garments can be, we suggest you take advantage of our premier dry-cleaning services at both the start and finish of the cold winter season.  This will help to preserve the look, feel, shape and integrity of your garments.  As a matter of information, when the cold weather season makes its presence known again, be sure to hang all your coats and garments up for a stretch of time before wearing them in order to have any wrinkles fall out naturally.

Spring has sprung, so don’t delay in taking proper care of all your wool coats and wool garments, and don’t hesitate to reach out to the friendly team of professionals here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations for all your dry-cleaning needs.  We look forward to serving you and to providing you with the best all round dry-cleaning services this side of Tennessee whether winter, spring, summer or fall.
