Our Promise

WE promise to provide excellent service and unsurpassed quality while

 maintaining a favourable effect on our environment.
WE are the world's most SOLVENT FREE fabricare specialist. WE DO NOT generate any hazardous waste at our facility.

Suede & Leather

These items we do not clean on our premises.Because Suede and Leather items are derived from natural animal skins they require a re-oiling process after cleaning. Some noticeable changes to the colours or shading and also the texture is very likely. While every care is taken to provide your garment in as close to new condition as possible, there are often times when our customers expectations will exceed the ability of our Leather and Suede cleaner.We send all of our Suede and Leather items to Trilium TLC The Leather Cleaner. Many retail stores recommend their cleaning process.

A Note About Care Labels

We can not be held responsible for a garment that does not respond favourably to the cleaning process if the care label has been removed. However, we will approach each item with the utmost of care.

While every care is taken at all times, we cannot accept any responsibility for damage that may occur from causes unknown and beyond our control. We are not responsible for buttons, buckles, zippers, ornaments, shrinkage or dyes which are liable to run or dissolve in the cleaning process.


Some items will shrink! Many manufacturers advise that 3 - 5% shrinkage will occur within the first 3 cleanings.

Shirt Laundry

Dry Cleaning or Hand WashThis process is for items that recommend dry cleaning or hand washing to preserve colour, finish or shape. Often they include silk, rayon, wool and polynosic fibers or shirts with trimming or appliqués. Solvent soluble stains (most oil stains) will be best Dry Cleaned for successful stain removal as well, regardless of the recommended cleaning process.Price starts at $6.95 

Launder Hand Finish

Recommended when the shirt will survive the laundry cycle but is not designed for the high temperature or pressure of the automated commercial shirt press. The shirt requires the delicate touch of our professional hand finishers using low temperature settings or steam only with no pressure. Some wafer or flock weaves also respond beautifully to this finishing procedure.This would include petite and extra large shirts, and shirts with shoulder pads, fancy buttons and overlays which require hand finishing. Fibers such as polyester, lycra, spandex, nylon etc. will not take high heat in the automated shirt finisher.Price starts at $3.95 

Commercial Laundry

This process is uniquely suited to shirts and blouses that are designed to handle the laundry cycle and the high temperature needed to dry and crisply finish your shirt. They are usually made exclusively of 100% cotton or a cotton / polyester blend with no more than 35% polyester.The shirt is automatically finished by a specially designed unit that accepts shirts with neck sizes from 14.5" to 17.5". Shirts that are smaller (incl. children) or larger, have delicate buttons or are form fitted will have to be hand finished. Price starts at $3.95 

I would like to apologize for some inconsistency in the past with some interpretations of classifications. We are trying to be diligent with our pricing for you.
