Cleaning & Preserving Wedding Gowns

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

We get a lot of people asking us how and where to clean wedding dresses. It’s not an easy find. We use to use a lady with a long history in the costume industry who did things by hand in Pasadena cal. but she retired. We do allot of things ourself, especially since vintage stains are much harder to get out than modern spots, and dry cleaning just won’t do it sometimes.
One of our regular customers told us about Heritage Garment Preservation. She used them and was happy. We’ve never used them so we can’t give you a personal review or recommendation about our experience but word of mouth says they’re a good place to look into.
If you have any good or bad experiences with cleaning your formal vintage gowns please post them here for everyone to see.
