What steps to take for removing grass stains

  1. "As soon as possible, use an enzyme-based stain remover like Carbona Stain Devils #6 or a bit of heavy-duty laundry detergent like Tide or Persil liquid that contains enough enzymes to break apart the stain molecules.

Have you ever stayed at a hotel and thought man that...

""They sit there and they perspire; We've had many employees work here a little while and then say 'Nope. not for me'-- even though they’re asked 'Can you stand hot heat?’” Those temperatures also affect business: "Right now, it’s been one of the worst. We use cool water to use our dry cleaning machine, and of course when it’s hot out, the water’s not as cool as it has to be. So, it creates problems in that way to get the product out,” said Corella." Read more on this story here. That's the nature of our business. The machines we use generate a lot of heat which is made worse by mother nature. When it there's a heatwave sweeping across the U.S., there is no relief to turn to for dry cleaners.
