Are you clumsy? Do you have a knack for getting something on virtually every piece of clothing you own? Whether it’s something you’re trying to put into your mouth or just putting on too much deodorant in a hurry, it’s always something. Over the years, we’ve learned that people are prone to accidents, such as covering themselves in Coca Cola, which could slowly eat away at your brand new outfit; but just because you haven’t restocked your supply of stain remover, it doesn’t mean you can’t be a stain-fighting champion!

Here at Butlerz, we wanted to understand how much free time you have and what you would do if you had more. So we decided to ask the people of Haslemere and others within the surrounding county of Surrey.

What were the results of the survey?

First, the bad news, 62% of respondents only have up to 1.5 hours of free time per day, worst yet, 9% have less than 15 minutes per day.

What should you do when food or wine goes flying only to land on your dry clean only clothes?

If you can’t fit the dry cleaners in for a few days your clothes should be ok. However the longer a stain is left the more it will set as it oxidizes. When you cut an apple open, the white of the apple turns brown as the sugar reacts to the oxygen, known as oxidizing. The same happens if sugar liquid (clear soda, juice, or white wine) spills on your clothes. It dries clear, only to turn brown after a couple months. Once this happens it will be very difficult to remove, if not impossible. Oil stains such body oil and grease can also oxidize and they are even more difficult to remove than oxidized sugar stains.

Is 30 Still Dirty?

3rd September 2015   /    blogs , laundry , news   /    no comments

There isn’t a better smell in the world, according to a Bupa survey of Britons, than a freshly made bed. It’s understandable that when something smells so soothing, soft and fresh that we also believe it is clean – but that might not necessarily be the case.

We’ve long been advised to switch our household washing machines down to 30° saving energy and helping the environment. For the most part, 30° is more than enough to freshen up our clothes and bedding, leaving them with a delicious smell to boot.

One of things I enjoy most about running my own dry-cleaning and ironing business is the free collection and delivery service. It’s my opportunity to tour the local area and catch up with clients, many of whom are now friends and good associates. I get to enjoy some really stunning local scenery such as the Devil’s Punchbowl in Hindhead or the ponds at Frensham.
