Dry Cleaning or Hand Wash: This process is for items that recommend dry cleaning or hand washing to preserve color, finish, or shape. Often they include silk, rayon, wool, and polynosic fibers or shirts with trimming or appliques.

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 beautifuly to this finishing procedure.

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.
