But imagine coming home from a delicious and fun barbecue with your friends and family only to realize you have a big oily sauce stain on your outfit. Thanks a lot burger…!

It’s true. Women are attracted to men in suits. It has a lot to do with the aura of self-confidence it brings along, which also commands the respect of other men. So it can be said that investing in, and maintaining a good suit has its advantages. Part of the maintenance includes taking your suit to dry-clean, but how often is that necessary? When should you dry-clean a suit?
Spring is the perfect time to enjoy the warm weather and the great outdoors, but it’s also the favorite period to invite friends and family over.

You can’t see it, but your comforter gets dirtier every night. Everyone loses moisture in their sleep by sweating. On top of that, skin flakes come off while you toss & turn. House dust mites survive off your skin flakes and live in your bed sheets, comforters, & pillows. Moisture and spider relatives in your bed.. You can probably imagine that this isn’t ideal for a good night’s rest. Therefor, it is important to have your comforters (and pillows) cleaned professionally at least once or twice a year.
Many of us come to a point in our lives when, no matter how hard we try, there’s no extra room in the day. We may want to follow our true passions, play sports, read a book, or have a sense of personal time, but there is always the next load of laundry to do or the small tasks that may not take too long but certainly pile up over time. We’re always taking care of chores, chores, chores! Finding room in your life for quality time spent with friends and family or just taking a simple afternoon off to take a jog around the block has certainly taken a back seat. Wouldn’t it be great if someone could help you take care of day-to-day mundane tasks of life so you could have more time to yourself? That’s what we’re here to do.
Footwear is extremely important. Your shoes impact your walk, your posture and not to forget how you present yourself. Whether they’re dress shoes, boots, stilettos or your favorite pair of loafers, their lifespan decreases significantly the more you wear them. Every year, millions of shoes get thrown away, even the “all-time favorite” pairs. Well this is exactly where a cobbler comes in. What most people don’t realize is that a professional shoe and boot repair service can help restore your favorite pair of shoes and boots, thus making them last longer. It may seem old-fashioned, but trust us: your feet and wallet will be thankful for the special care.
It’s very likely that at some time or the other, you owned a dress shirt or blouse that had stains, discoloration or even tears after only a few wears. Especially in the armpit area (Hello yellow underarms!). With the warmth of the summer comes the challenge of keeping the underarms of your dress shirts or blouses dry, clean, and most importantly the same color as the rest of the shirt. So you’re probably asking yourself: what happened to my dress shirt or blouse that caused the stain or discoloration? Why can’t I raise my arms in confidence, high five people or give thumbs ups?
Nowadays almost everyone has a busy schedule that makes it very difficult to find time to get our dry cleaning and laundry done. After a long day at work, the last thing you want to do is make a trip to the dry cleaner (which chances are they’re already closed) or do several loads of laundry.
It happens to the best of us: You’re about to put on a dress shirt only to realize the collar is yellow — even though you just washed it. In some cases, you may have just gotten it back from the dry cleaner after going through a wash and press shirt service.

People today are busier than ever and so free time has become very limited. With hardly enough time on hand, the last thing people want to think about is their pile of dirty laundry & other chores. Because of this, many people are thinking outside the box for more convenient solutions to household responsibilities.
Winter season! A season of fresh cold breeze and gentle snow. With our chilly winters, here in The Netherlands, it’s tough to dress warmly without combining fabrics such as cashmere, wool, leather and down into our wardrobe. Most times these fabrics require a large investment when purchased, yet we put very little time and effort in properly cleaning, storing and caring for them.
While some people may consider professional dry cleaning a luxury, someone who fully understands the benefits of dry cleaning, knows it’s not just an option but a necessity.

Although not all clothing requires dry cleaning, but proper care of the items that do is essential for maintaining their beauty and lifespan.
Saturday mornings are best spent in bed, and there’s no better feeling than waking up and remembering that it’s the weekend. From croissants and bagels to fried eggs, we all have enjoyed breakfast in bed at some point in our lives, but it’s not just food stains that can prompt us to ask: “How often should I wash my bed sheets?”
Curtains are absolutely essential to a home. Not only do they add beauty to your home but they also block dirt and dusts coming from the outside, prevents the wind from blowing too hard, and allows the right amount of sunlight to come in. However, since curtains often require less attention, it is very easy to overlook their care completely. There are a lot of home owners who are still unsure how often their curtains should be cleaned and what the proper way of cleaning them is.
One of the best parts of a trip is your home away from home. Your hotel room. Maybe it’s the clean smell, the soothing neutral colors, the bed that resembles a soft comfy cloud, or the spa-like bathroom. Whatever it is, you’ll miss it when you’re back at your real home. But this relaxed, light feeling doesn’t have to be limited to only a week or two a year when you’re away. You can easily make a few changes to your home to make daily life more enjoyable and vacation-like.
Stress seems to go hand in hand with the modern lifestyle. Life is filled with so many frustrations, deadlines, and demands. For many people, stress has become so normal that it is now a way of life. Stress isn’t necessarily bad, though. Stress can help you perform under pressure, motivate you, and even keep you safe when there are impending dangers. But when stress becomes overwhelming, it may damage your health, mood, relationships, and quality of life.
We work hard to excel at our jobs and maintain our household. We try to compensate overworking with healthier foods and occasional exercise, but many of us ignore one of the most important parts of health and performance: sleep. Good sleep is proven to improve overall health, memory, concentration, creativity, and productivity. Chronic, long-term insufficient sleep however, increases your odds of diabetes, depression, increased stress, cardiovascular disease, even weight gain. Bad sleep happens to good people. Don’t let it happen to you.
Carpets/rugs do more than just simply warm up the space. They also add a flair of style to any part of the home. Having clean carpets enhances the appearance of your home, but perhaps the most valuable benefit from having a clean carpet is how it improves your family’s health.

“Buy less. Choose well. Make it last. Quality, not quantity. Everybody’s buying far too many clothes.”
Vivienne Westwood said these words a few years back. The message has only gotten firmer with the launch of the documentary “True Cost” last year. Our eyes were opened with regards to our buying behavior. Purchasing cheap clothing is good for our wallet, but most of the time not good for our planet and the people making these clothes.
