Dry Cleaning Services for Charity and Non Profit Organization
Coat Drive Inspiration! Several years ago we read about Klinke cleaners and were amazed that it has cleaned over 15000 coats for non-profits! What an amazing community service and what an inspiration! We called a few here in Fairfax County. We dealt with bureaucratic staff that we felt that we will never be able to provide a quality service for free of charge to any non profits! One fine morning we received a call from Ms Maria Small. She told us that their non profit needs help cleaning coats. Bam! There came Klinke cleaners in mind and you know what? We did it! We cleaned over 32 coats for Washington DC and Arlington’s children in need. Here is an example of our achievement!
How do you drop off your garment at the dry cleaners?
Step 1. Check and clear all pockets. Make sure that there is no money or coins left over. Also check whether there is any ink pen in your pockets. Remove important documents such as passports and license ids. Note that an ink pen can damage not only your garment but other customer’s garment as well if they are dried at the same time.
Step 2. Point any spots or stains to the front desk. Explain root causes of stains such as soda, beer, food, chocolate, wine or curry.
Step 3. Ask for prices before dropping garment. Some dry cleaners charge significantly higher fees to remove spots and stains.
Step 4. If price of cleaning is more than the garment you bought, ask yourself whether it is worth to keep this garment or better to just buy new.
Step 5. Ask dry cleaners to provide an invoice. Review the number of garment right away. Do not wait to find any mismatch until you go home.
Step 6. Provide a reasonable amount of cleaning time to dry cleaners. Many dry cleaners clean garment two or three times until spots are gone. Therefore, you are better off giving them more time.
Step 7. When you are ready to pick up garment, bring your invoice receipt. If showing up earlier than time indicated on the receipt, call the dry cleaners ahead of time.
Step 8. Reconcile number of garment and also review whether all alteration and tailoring activity are complete.
Should you donate or recycle your hangers at your local dry cleaners?
Do you know that we consume 1.6 times more than what we produce per year? Consequently, the Earth will overshoot with Carbon Emission foot print by 2030. Dry Cleaners have utmost responsibility in reducing the carbon foot print because of the chemicals and supplies they use. The best way you can help is by donating your hangers. It also helps to de-clutter your home and avoid filling up trash cans. The best way to organize hangers is to keep white hangers, coat hangers and pant hangers separately. You should save the twist ties that come with the garment. Once you are ready to drop off your garment at the dry cleaners, you can bring your used hangers for recycling.
