Linen Cleaning & Dry Cleaning for Bedding or Household Items
Cleaning of comforters, blankets, sheets pillow cases, and linens is often once of the most overlooked task in maintaining a tidy household. Fortunately, Art’s Garment Care expertise isn’t limited to the clothing that you wear. We also take pride in keeping you home and bedroom as sparkling as your wardrobe.
Over time, your bedding items can accumulate a variety of nasty items. Bed bugs, dust mites, and other unwelcome visitors can cling to your bed and make your life miserable. To ensure that your comforters, duvets, blankets, sheets and pillow cases remain clean it’s critical to have them cleaned at least weekly, if not more.
Not only that, but the way you clean your household items is critical. Frequently, other dry cleaners use bleaches, and starches to cleaning your duvets, sheets, and pillow cases. This can result in a skin irritation or rashes, as anyone whose stayed at a second-rate hotel can attest. Art’s uses only the most environmentally friendly detergents and stain removal agents to ensure that you, your family and the environment stay as health as possible.
Lastly, Art’s Drive-In Cleaners always ask our client to try it on one more time when picking any garment up after alterations. That way we can make sure everything is functioning and positioned properly.
We hope you found this information useful.

Getting Ready for Winter
Professional dry cleaners know the best ways to treat these items to make sure they are fresh, clean, and stay in good condition.
Most of us wash our sheets and blankets fairly regularly, but the other stuff—comforters, quilts, and pillows—often don’t fit in our washers, or are made of materials we don’t know what to do with. Professional dry cleaners know the best ways to treat these items to make sure they are fresh, clean, and stay in good condition. Art’s Cleaners in Middletown, NY would like to share some of the guidelines you can use at home; knowing what the item is made of is key to knowing how to clean it.
Washing Your Comforter
If you decide to wash your comforters at home, do not put them in the dryer; the stuffing may shrink or become clumpy and uneven. (except for down comforters) If line drying isn’t an option, especially in raining or cold weather, take them to a dry cleaner for a thorough cleaning and drying. How a comforter or quilt should be washed depends on its stuffing. Always check care labels to see what the manufacture recommends. If the tags are gone here are some basic guidelines.
Sheets & Pillow Cases
By far the most important items to keep clean in your household are your sheets and pillow cases. Many people wash their sheets less frequently than once a month. This provides the perfect environment for both unwelcome bodily stains as well as the expansion of dust mites and bed bugs. Using state-of-the art cleaning formulas to knock out any stains that lurk on your sheets or pillow cases and also cranks up the temperature to knock out any bed bugs or dust mites. We can handle any type of sheets or pillow cases, from traditional cotton, to cozy flannel, to slippery silk.
Comforters & Blankets
Bedding comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. There are traditional comforters, wool duvets and hand stitched blankets. The expert dry cleaners at Art’s Drive-In Cleaners have seen them all and know just the right formula to ensure your bedding stays comfy and soft. One of the most important things we do at Art’s is to assess the construction of your bedding items to identify the proper cleaning method. Certain items such as down comforters require washing with an extraordinarily long drying cycle to prevent feathers from clumping together. Other items, like wool blankets can not be cleaned in water due to the tendency of wool to shrink in water.
Household items are not limited solely to the bedroom. We are equally adept at handling the pieces that set every room apart: your rugs. Rugs vary widely on size and construction, and also often fall victim to some of the hardest stains like red wine, so it is very important to ensure that you take them to an expert. When faced with a hard stain on an expensive rug, it’s difficult to know how to handle and clean such a variety of materials, which is why it’s best to leave rug cleaning to the professionals. There’s a wide variety of stains that commonly befall rugs. Wine stains, food stains, dirt, mud, coffee and animal stains create a huge amount of wear and tear on rugs. That’s why it’s always in your best interest to get your rugs cleaned by a professional twice a year. Bring your rugs to Art’s Drive-In Cleaners. We can thoroughly clean and refresh them. Art’s Cleaners is full of highly-trained experts who know how to clean a large variety of materials and stains.
Fine Embroidery & Lace
Fine embroidery or lace pieces are eternal and often carry great sentimental value for their owner. Due to the fragile nature of these items, it is always a safer to get especially delicate embroidered linens and lace dry cleaned. The most common reasons for this are the age of the materials, the types of stains and the colorfast quality of the embroidery thread. If the material is very old and fragile, or if the edges of the embroidered piece aren’t finished, you could compromise the fabric itself. The piece could unravel or deteriorate beyond repair. Additionally, you can cause dye bleeding that ruins the design of the fabric. Leave these fragile household items to us, and get them back looking better than ever.
