The agitation of a regular washing machine, even on the gentle cycle, can be too harsh for delicate and aging fabrics. If an item has monetary or sentimental value, don’t take any chances washing it at home.
Some vintage clothing collectors and retailers warn against dry cleaning, but GreenEarth is different. Traditional dry cleaning uses harsh chemicals that can be hard on fabric, but GreenEarth is safe and gentle, perfect for antique and vintage garments.
If an accidental spill occurs, or if you bought an antique item with a stain on it, you can try spot cleaning it. See our “Stain Removal” section for instructions on how to treat almost any kind of stain. For information on antique bags and purses, see our “Handbags and Purses” section.
