Will my laundry shrink?

All claims (including missing/damaged items) must be reported within 48 hrs of delivery. Due to variations in fabrics and dyes we cannot guarantee against color loss, bleeding, and shrinkage when following manufacturer's care instructions. We take additional steps to remove stains that are identified prior to processing, but we cannot guarantee removal of existing stains. We try to remove and return items from pockets, but we are not responsible for items left in clothing or any resulting damage.

What if I give you something brand new?

Please let us know when you are washing something for the first time. We will be happy to wash it separately. This will prevent colors from running on your other clothes.

How can I be sure that nothing is missing?

However, all claims of missing clothes must be made within three days of laundry delivery or we will not be liable.

Why did you dry clean items I gave you to launder?
