How to Keep Your Clothes Looking New

Professionally clean your garments

It’s crucial to clean your clothes before storing them for the season so stains, food, and other issues aren’t compounded over time. Caring for wool garments doesn’t seem to be a spring cleaning task but the steps you take now can make all the difference in what you find when you bring out your things next fall: wonderful woolens, or ones peppered with holes.

Your dry cleaner can also pack your sweaters in acid-free tissue so you can store them flat in your closet which will help prevent wrinkles. Make sure to ask about a tissue paper pack when you drop off your garments and tell them that you’re storing garments for the season.

Wash & Machine Press, Hand ironing vs. Dry Cleaning for Shirts 

Wash and press is a process reserved for men’s cotton button-down shirts.

These items are washed and a special machine is used to dry and press them,

which allows for reduced costs vs. other shirts that need to be dry cleaned.

Dry Cleaning is the process of cleaning garments using a chemical solvent other than water.

We recommend that you follow the care instructions of your garment.

If the tag reads ‘dry clean only’, it should be processed accordingly.

Please note that some shirts are not eligible for Wash & Press and will instead be Dry Cleaned – Wet clean include,

but are not limited to, women’s shirts/blouses, very small shirts, special fabrics or designs,

and certain types of buttons (eg, steel).  Other items such as skirts, pants, sweaters and jackets,

will always be dry cleaned and cannot be washed and pressed.

JOE’S ORGANIC CLEANERS. SOLVONK4 dry cleaning solvent, part of the SYSTEMK4 process, is now a USDA Certified Biobased Product and is BioPreferred

            



Kreussler Inc. Earns USDA Certified Biobased Product Label
Kreussler Inc.’s SOLVONK4 dry cleaning solvent, part of the SYSTEMK4 process, is now a USDA Certified Biobased Product and is BioPreferred. Biobased products are derived from plants and other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials and provide an alternative to conventional petroleum-derived products. SOLVONK4 is 88% biobased.

TAMPA, Fla. – June 12, 2018 – PRLog — Kreussler Inc. announced today that it has earned the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Biobased Product label. The product, SOLVONK4, is now able to display a unique USDA label that highlights its percentage of biobased content.

Third-party verification for a product’s biobased content is administered through the USDA BioPreferred Program, an initiative created by the 2002 Farm Bill (and most recently expanded by the 2014 Farm Bill). One of the goals of the BioPreferred Program is to increase the development, purchase, and use of biobased products.

The USDA Certified Biobased Product label displays a product’s biobased content, which is the portion of a product that comes from a renewable source, such as plant, animal, marine, or forestry feedstocks. Utilizing renewable, biobased materials displaces the need for non-renewable petroleum-based chemicals.

Biobased products, through petroleum displacement, have played an increasingly important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions that exacerbate global climate change.

Biobased products are cost-comparative, readily available, and perform as well as or better than their conventional counterparts.

Richard Fitzpatrick, Vice President of Kreussler Inc., said, “Being the first and only dry cleaning solvent on the market with the USDA BioPreferred label provides credibility and visibility to Kreussler’s commitment to our client’s needs and the environment. This new BioPreferred label indicates that SOLVONK4 has been independently certified to meet the USDA BioPreferred program standards for biobased content. Having the BioPreferred label from the USDA is an important distinction for SOLVONK4 and the SYSTEMK4 dry cleaning process and Kreussler is proud of this achievement.”

“We applaud Kreussler Inc. for earning the USDA Certified Biobased Product label,” said Kate Lewis, USDA BioPreferred Program. “Products from Kreussler Inc. are contributing to an ever-expanding marketplace that adds value to renewable agriculture commodities, creates jobs in rural communities, and decreases our reliance on petroleum.”

According to a report that the USDA released in 2016, biobased products contributed $393 billion to the U.S. economy in 2014 and support, directly and indirectly, 4.2 million jobs. In this report, the research team estimated petroleum displacement of up to 6.8 million barrels in 2014.

The increased production of renewable chemicals and biobased products contributes to the development and expansion of the U.S. bioeconomy – where society looks to agriculture for sustainable sources of fuel, energy, chemicals, and products.

About the USDA BioPreferred Program and Certified Biobased Product label

The BioPreferred Program is a USDA-led initiative that assists in the development and expansion of markets for biobased products. The BioPreferred Program is transforming the marketplace for biobased products through two initiatives: mandatory purchasing requirements for Federal Agencies and Federal contractors and voluntary product certification and labeling.

Biobased products span a diverse range of applications, such as lubricants, cleaning products, chemicals, and bioplastics. The USDA Certified Biobased Product label communicates a product’s biobased content. Expressed as a percentage, biobased content is the ratio of non-fossil organic carbon (new organic carbon) to total organic carbon in a product. New organic carbon is derived from recently-created materials. The total organic carbon in a product consists of new organic carbon and old organic carbon that originates from fossil carbon materials, such as petroleum, coal, or natural gas. More than 3,000 products have earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product label.

Will My Shirts Shrink When You Clean Them?

Most dress shirts are difficult to shrink. The manufacturer has already allowed for the normal two percent and progressive shrinkage requirements.

This shrinkage is usually not enough to cause a complaint. Shrinkage beyond this is usually due to poorly stabilized materials.

Shrinkage complaints can easily be resolved by measuring the collar and sleeve length. Measure the collar from the end of the buttonhole to the center of the button.

Measure the sleeve length in a straight line from the center of the back of the collar at the seam to the end of the cuff. If these measurements correspond to the shirt size, it has not shrunk.

My Buttons are Cracked! Buttons may crack during pressing even though the press padding is in excellent condition and the procedures used are correct.

The reason for this is that there is an inherent problem in the button or the way the button was applied to the shirt. The majority of shirt buttons are made from a polyester resin.

The strength of the button depends on the amount of polyester in the resin; some imported buttons contain less polyester.

Off-quality buttons are graded because they do not meet the requirements in one or all of the following criteria: color, visual inclusions, chips or cracks,

and uniformity of size. Some manufactures use less expensive, off-quality buttons to save money but this sometimes results in higher than average breakage. Not To worry,

Here’s what you need to know about so-called organic and green dry-cleaning.

Today’s ‘organic’ products are called so in substantially different meaning than just being simply organic in a traditional sense. Specifically, ‘organic’ is used to refer to a thing made from completely natural non-toxic materials and process without any artificial stuff harmful to human body and environment, additives, supplements and processes.

Non-toxic.
The cleaned textiles have a fresh scent.
Excellent cleaning power for water soluble and lipophilic stains.
Gentle cleaning of textiles, leather and furs.
Very pleasant and smooth feel.
High wearing comfort.
Bright colors.
Increased protection against textiles

Effective environmental protection. Well thought out – Solvon K4 for a sustainable future:We take over responsibility – for the protection of human health and our environment. That is why all components of K4 Systems in such a way that they fulfill stringent, statutory environmental regulations
