THE SWISS LAUNDRY TOUR

THE SWISS LAUNDRY TOUR

Fashion has always fascinated me and millions around the world. It has become an integral part of any human being. It gives us a sense of pride and confidence in our daily life. In simpler words, it defines who we are. Though your clothes are so important and nearly dignify a person’s soul, we take very little care for its well being.

We today spend thousands of rupees on a single piece of clothing, may it be jeans, suits, shirts, jackets or even smaller things like scarves, but hardly ever take care of it. To improve its longevity and newness, dry cleaning the garments are important. Whether a heavy wedding designer outfit or an everyday dress. To complete our quest of dry cleaning, The Swiss Laundry gave us a specialized tour of the entire process and also explained how even local dry cleaners use flammable chemicals which can cause irritation or even skin cancer.
To educate the mass about the textile care sector, The Swiss Laundry dedicated a day to showcase the journey of garments with each stage being explained in detail to the bloggers and I can’t be more thrilled.
To simplify the process, below are the points mentioned.

LAUNDRY - 8 STAGE PROCESS1. SORTING

They are then labeled to the exact receipt number, name, packaging type, Date of pickup and delivery. Everything required to avoid mix-ups and confusions.

Before delivery each garment is checked for any signs of spots or unclean traces if found so – the entire process is repeated. Otherwise, it is delivered for you to feel that extra special again.
