Dust Ruffles / Bed Skirts
It is recommended to clean dust ruffles and bed skirts every 2 to 3 years; this will keep them in pristine condition for many years.
Poly-Filled Comforters & Bedspreads Poly-filled comforters and bedspreads are made of a variety of materials which can shrink and change in appearance when laundered. Poly-filled comforter seams may loosen in the washing/drying process and colors may fade; therefore we recommend bringing all the matching items for cleaning at the same time, that way the look stays consistent for all the pieces. You can assume that 3% shrinkage will occur in cotton items.
Antiques & Heirlooms
Antiques and hand-made items are always inspected and assessed before the washing process begins. The professionals at Wagner’s European Fabricare will let you know if they are not able to restore your items. We have restored many antiques and family heirlooms with great success!
Comforters Down comforters are cleaned using a special, natural process which preserves the life of delicate down. We ensure your down is dried properly and thoroughly, at low temperatures, to allow maximum loft. Down comforters that are made with a high-thread count cotton shell will shrink slightly the first time they are laundered, our shrinkage rate is 10-12% lower than Industry Standard. Your down comforter will be restored to its original loft after washing.
Featherbeds your featherbed is made of an extremely high thread count shell and therefore will tend to shrink when it is washed. Assume that your featherbed will shrink 2-3 inches width wise and length wise. The shrinkage will only occur the 1st time it is laundered and would be up to as much as 8 inches if taken to a dry cleaner or washed at a laundromat. Your featherbed is washed in a large machine. It is rinsed several times to insure all the cleaning agents are removed. It is then dried on low heat for as long as 10 hours to maximize loft.
Pillows Attempting to wash your down or feather pillows in a residential washing machine will void almost all factory warranties. The down in your pillows is almost impossible to get completely dry, which is essential in avoiding mildew. Our pillow cleaning process uses a tumble dry cycle on a very low heat for an extended time, avoiding shrinkage and insuring thorough dryness. You should expect your pillow to be rejuvenated and loft to be restored during the washing process.
