Hey, that stain was not there when I brought it to the cleaners! We assure you, no cleaner puts stains on your clothes. However, there is something called an invisible stain that our cleaning will make visible! (We are kind of like reverse superheroes!)
Sadly lots of stains dry invisibly on your clothing like some oily foods and especially beverages with sugar content. Later, if not pre-treated (take it from us, it’s hard to pre-treat something that you can’t see!) with exposure to heat (our dryers) or the passage of time (your closet), a yellow or brown stain will appear. This is caused by a process called oxidation.
You’ve seen a freshly cut apple turn brown after you leave it out a bit, right? Exact same chemical reaction when the oxygen particles react with the sugars in the apple.
SO, take note of your sweet beverage spills, even if you can’t see them they are there lurking in your fabrics just waiting to come back and haunt you (and your friendly dry cleaner). Once oxidized they are much more of a challenge to remove. Cheers.
