Handbag and purse care - Efendi dry cleaners

Great ways to look after your armcandy

1. When brand new use a protective spray and give the inside and outside of your bag/purse at least 3 coats of protective spray making sure each layer is thoroughly dry. This will ensure that the fabric or leather will not absorb any spills or ground in dirt. This will help give maximum results once cleaned.
2. Avoid holding the handles straight after using hand cream. Clean hands are also essential. This will stop the handles from getting contaminated.
3. Did you know that Efendi offer a mini spa treatment for the inside of your bag/purse without having the outside cleaned. Your bag will feel fresh and it will also help eliminate the build up of bacteria.
4. As Efendi always says, never try to remove stains at home yourself. Same rule applies to your clothes. We have a better chance of obtaining maximum results with untampered stains. NEVER EVER RUB!!
5. Coffee, pen or make-up. Most stains can be removed so don't despair.

This seasons hot buys - Efendi Dry cleaners

Categories // fashion and tips

Before you start shopping for this seasons hot buys you might want to consider delving into your wardrobe and having a spring clean. It's a good time for 'out with the old in with the new', but it's also a great time to find old lost treasures.

Here are some steps to guide you on how to spring clean your wardrobe and get prepared for some hot summer days.

Step one :
Make sure all winter coats are cleaned before putting away. Not only are we all tired of seeing them but they take-up too much room. They crush our lovely silks and linens and stop us from seeing clearly what we have in our wardrobes.
Step two:
Make sure all your knitwears are clean before storage and wrapped in acid frees tissue. Store them in breathable storage boxes. Never leave them hanging throughout summer as this causes them to loose shape. This way you will have a lovely array jumpers still looking like new ready for next winter.
Step three:
Do not store any of your clothes in the polythenes you get back from the drycleaners. These can cause your clothes to discolour. If you come across any summer linens and silks that have yellow, unexplainable stains, this is usually due to storage in polythenes. It also happens to garment that have been put away without being cleaned. 
Step four:
Give your cupboards a good dusting to make sure there is no breeding ground for moths.
Then spray your cupboards and draws with fragrances which deter moths.
Step five:
