Dresses & Gowns

Dresses and gowns need special care. Cleaning, pressing, alterations. Make sure to plan ahead and give us some extra time to care for these special items.

While a gown may only be worn one day, and may not appear soiled, it will require careful cleaning. The gown is sure to be soiled to some degree by perspiration and body oils. Long gowns will pick-up soil along the hemline and train and, very likely, there will be some food or beverage spills. Some stains, which are not immediately visible, will develop with age, through oxidation, quite possibly causing fabric weakness, discoloration or irreversible damage to the gown.

The Mall Dry Cleaner carefully examines each gown to establish the most suitable method of cleaning and storage. Each gown receives special handling with attention given to every detail.
