    Notify dry cleaners ahead of time of any preexisting tears or damage. Otherwise, they might not clean your garment for fear you’ll think they caused the damage.

    Would you suggest buying eco-friendly cleaning products or making them on your own?

    Thanks for tips!

    If you’re comfortable with the DIY approach, go for it! Follow recipes carefully so you avoid mixing incompatible ingredients.

    If you’re not the DIY type, switch from mainstream to eco-friendly products.

    If you really take a closer look at these products (read the labels), you will see they are not 100% natural (chemical-free). This is called “green washing”. There is one I know, because I use it, that is totally non-toxic. So I can recommend. Check the web site: amazoniagreenproducts.com. It’s an ALLERGY CONTROL PRODUCT, for people with skin sensitivities, hypperallergenic or with immune system compromised.
