PHONE 327-4625 Cleaning Imported Fabrics Requires Care By CHRISTINE PUIIL ilcralil Stuff Writer Mr. and Mrs. Ernie Meads and Mr. and Mrs. Dick Mc- Intyre of San Diego, Calif, will be visitors in the city on the weekend. While here they will attend the Sauthminster Circle Square Dance Club Saturday night at p.m. Many imported fabrics es- pecially double knits from flaly, do not have preshrunk yarns and stable colors, said a Leth- bridge dry cleaner in a report to the Leihbridge Canadian As- sociation of Consumers. Usually double knits can be re-blocked into shape and re- cently some new methods have been developed for safely clean- ing these fabrics. in a blend of fibers, the gar- ment is cleaned according to Ihe h a r d c s t-to-clcan fiber. Cleaners have a difficult time identifying all fibers unless la- belled'because of the many new finishes being developed. The National Institute of Dry Cleaning supplies information to dry cleaners about all new fabrics on the market. Blending makes a nice effect but poor service, he said. In many instances it has been re- ported that blended fabrics are recalled because of inadequate testing by the factories. For example when turtleneck sweaters first came on the market for men, the necks would stretch out of shape and sag permanently. Wash-stretched fabrics can never be re-shaped nor can marks left by irons on a non- iren fabric ever be cleaned or steamed out. Permanent creased pants are definitely capable of holding that crease, said the dry clean- er, but retaining this single crease dcv.-n the front during ressing is reportedly difficult, 'he permanent crease is also ubject to easy frayir.g. Pciits which are labelled ion-press are sometimes de- eiving because the pockets re- [uire ironing. Removing creases from bond- d fabrics is almost impossible I even with special cleaners presses. The spotter is one of the most skilled workers in a dry clean- ing plant. Spots and fibers in- volved have lo be identified ex- actly to avoid permanent, stain- ing. Only spots which are caused by substances with an oil base come out with dry cleaning. He said it is safer for customers to identify spots when bringing garments for cleaning. I Not enough thought is given: by manufacturers to correct j combinations for cleaning pur-' poses. Buttons and belt buckles are sometimes glued to backs made of cardboard. Hand clean- ing will not match tiiese acces- sories well with the machine cleaned garment, he said. In many cases trimmings are not dry cleanable, therefore the whole garment cannot be clean- ed. Garments may clean very well but if the colors in the trim arc not stable, they will j run into the fabric and ruin Ihc garment. During the process of dry cleaning an average 65-pound, load of clothes in a half-hour! cycle has gallons of clean-i ing solvent pass through it, hej said. The two types of solvents are j stoddards, which have a petrol j base, and synthetics which arc j usually carbon tetrachloride toj be used in quick-clean plants and coin-operalcd machines. Although the synthetic solvent lies its advantages in a 15-min- ule wash cycle and fast deo- dorizing time, garments fre- quently subjected to it will be- gin to have a harsh feeling and crack. Red and blues also have a tendency lo fade. Solvents in the machines are constantly filtered lo remove soil and any color left in the solvent.
