Quick Tips

Do you have a quick tip that you use that simplifies your work? Share it with your fellow cleaners here…

  • Soaking Garments Overnight
    When you want to soak a garment overnight, cover it with a towel so that the garment stays completely submerged.

    Bill Nicolais, Spotless Cleaners

  • Guarded Trouser Hangers
    Make your own over-sized guarded trouser hangers. I have a customer who wears size 6XL trousers. Traditional trouser hangers are too small. My remedy is to take two 18 inch shirt hangers (for strength) and overlap two regular trouser guards (covering all 18 inches) stapling them in the middle. The 6XL trousers can now be placed over the trouser guards with ample room.

    Steve Stevenson, Stevenson’s Cleaners, Altoona
