What exactly is the process you use to clean the gown?

We have several different processes that are used for cleaning. Each gown is evaluated upon its arrival and the best cleaning process for that particular gown is used. All of our processes are safe, gentle and environmentally safe. Your gown is then fitted on an acid-free bust form and packed in our acid-neutral preservation chest. Please note shoulder pads and bust pads must be removed as they could cause damage to the gown over time. They will be wrapped in tissue paper and packed underneath your gown. We are able to remove approximately 95% of all stains: including tar, blood, perspiration, grass, mud, grease, and food, being the most common, as well as any sugar stains from cake icing, wine and other beverages.

Is my gown guaranteed?

A 100 year guarantee against caramelized sugar stains or yellowing is provided. If at anytime your gown is found to have yellowed or has caramelized stains we will reprocess the gown at no additional cost. If reprocessing is found to be unsuccessful we will refund the preservation cost.
