View Full Version : dry cleaning problem
09-04-2005, 12:05 PM
as some of you know, i have an interview this coming wednesday morning at 11AM. my flight leaves tuesday morning. today is a sunday and tomorrow is labor's day.
thus, there are no dry cleaner's open today and probably tomorrow. (i called all the dry cleaner's in my city today and no one answered.) i need to get my suit dry cleaned, if not pressed at the least. any ideas? are there any 24-hour dry cleaner's in DC?

I think you just need your suit pressed. Go to any Men's Warehouse and see if they won't mind doing it for you. Also, hang your suit in the bathroom when you take a shower. The steam will loosen the wrinkles.
You really don't need to dry clean your suit unless it's soiled and at most only 3-4 times a year becuase any more and it'll hurt the suit.

Lots of 24 Hr. dry-cleaners in DC... hell, I couldn't throw a rock without hitting one of em last time I was there.
Maybe the hotel you are staying at will be able to help you out.
Good luck on your interview!

Go out and by yourself the Dryel diy dry clean sheets. Toss your suit in with those, otherwise I'd go with hanging your clothes in the a hanger and place them on the towel rack as you shower really hot. That'll do the trick for wrinkes.

Or you could just wear the suit in the shower...that'll clean it for sure. :heh:

i did the shower thing. my coat definitely looks better. my shirt, though, needs ironing or pressing.
what's the best way to pack a suit without getting it totally wrinkled again?
In a pinch, a fine misting squirt bottle works well. You could also look into a portable steamer.

You can pick up a suit bag thing those work...if you can find a store thats open ...otherwise I have heard if you can roll clothes instead of folding they are likely not to wrinkle or crease as much. Also, if you are staying in a hotel most of them can press it for you or will have and iron in the room. Atleast they have in the ones I've stayed at.
