A Lemon a Day Keeps the Stains Away

The saying goes “When life gives you lemons make lemonade.”  Well, there’s also another saying.  “When life gives you lemons use them to remove the stains from your clothes!” A lemon can be a lifesaver when it comes to removing stains. 

It’s important to know how to use lemons for your stain removal needs, or they could do the opposite and cause a stain instead of removing a stain. If you’re not sure whether or not a lemon is the right stain remover for your fabric, bring it into Mulberrys & GreenStreets in San Francisco. Our stain removal experts can tackle any stain using eco-friendly products.

How can lemons be a useful ingredient in the laundry room?

1. Lemons + Water:  Juice stains, especially fruit juice stains, can be tricky to get out.  Mix 1/3 cup of lemon juice and 2/3 cup of water and gently rub the stain.  Once the stain fades, wash your clothing items in the washer until the stain is completely removed.

2.  Lemons + Detergent:  When treating rust stains on your clothes, pour one cup of lemon juice into the washer along with your detergent.  The lemon and detergent concoction will not only help remove the rust stain, but it will brighten your clothes.

3.  Lemons + Salt:  We all love a crisp, white dress shirt, but white clothing can easily stain.  Squeeze the lemon juice directly onto the stain and pour salt over the stain.  Gently rub the lemon juice and salt into the stain, then rinse with water.  Repeat until the stain has faded or completely disappeared.  Hang your shirt to dry.  Once dry, evaluate the stain and wash your shirt in your washer if needed.

4.  Lemons on their own:  Leather shoes need constant care and regular cleaning and shining.  The next time your leather shoes are looking a little dull, take a cloth and squeeze some lemon juice on it.  Gently rub your shoes to give them a clean, shiny look.

  

We suggest always checking the laundry tag, fabric, and type of stain before using lemon in your laundry room.  If the stain persists, bring your clothing items into one of our stores or try out our delivery services. At Mulberrys and GreenStreets, we take stains seriously, and that’s why we only use the best eco-friendly detergent and processes to keep your clothes looking fresh and clean.

How to Remove Red Stains

Red roses, candy, wine…and stains?

Valentine’s Day has a lot of red, but this year your Valentine’s Day won’t have any red stains. Red is one of the most difficult colors to remove, especially if the stains are on light colored clothing.

At Mulberrys & GreenStreets in San Francisco, our experts use toxin-free dry cleaning processes or crystal clean, purified water and the finest environmentally-friendly detergents to remove those hard to get out stains. If you find yourself with a red stain after celebrating Valentine’s Day this year, try these stain removal tips.

1. Red Wine: Too much toasting at dinner? Blot lightly with a damp cloth. Do not rub! Rubbing with set the stain. Sprinkle some table salt on the stain. Continue this process until most of the stain is removed.  Then, wash in the washing machine according to your garment’s laundry tag.

2. Red Pasta Sauce: A romantic Italian dinner is a great way to celebrate, but it can also get messy. Tomato-based stains contain oil, so dish soap is helpful in removing them. Apply a small amount of eco-friendly dish soap on the stain and rub it with your fingers. Rinse in cold water. Repeat until the stain disappears, then wash the garment as usual. Heat can set the stain, so be sure the stain vanishes as much as possible before sticking it in the dryer!

3. Red dye: February 15th is the day after Valentine’s Day when you accidentally wash your red shirt with your white clothes. Rewash the stained clothes in a non-chlorine bleach along with your regular laundry detergent. Soak your laundry in the nonchlorine bleach and laundry detergent mixture for up to 8 hours, then wash again.

Burgundy Women's ClothingStop into any of our San Francisco stores for a toxin-free clean. We’ll take care of those red stains for you! Be sure to grab a chocolate kiss (or two or three) to share with your friend this Valentine’s Day or send them $20 through our referral program.

5 Steps to Take When Transitioning Your Closet From Winter to Spring

As winter winds down, wool pants, cashmere sweaters, leather jackets and other seasonal clothing items will be packed away and removed from your closet.  They’ll sit in boxes and plastic containers for nine months until winter arrives again and you have a seasonal excuse to wear plaid flannel and ugly Christmas sweaters again.

At Mulberrys & GreenStreets Dry Cleaning and Laundry in San Francisco, we have many customers bring in their winter items for a toxin-free clean before spring arrives.  Our delivery service makes it even easier for you to do a refresh of all our winter clothes.

Most people spend a day transitioning their closets from winter to spring, but did you know there are certain steps to take to ensure your clothes are stored away properly?  February is a great month to prepare your closet for the transition.

Below is a simple checklist to get your ready for a fresh, spring closet!

  If you haven’t worn it at least two times this season, then pitch it.

You know that red velvet jacket from college that sits in the back of your closet each winter?  You keep it there just in case you need a red velvet jacket at some point. Well, it may be time to donate it.  Cleaning out your closet leaves room for new clothes.

  Clean all your clothes before packing them away.

Bring your clothes to Mulberrys & GreenStreets! It’s important to remove all stains, dirt, and sweat from your clothes before they go into storage.  Stains can become permanent if they sit for too long and moths love to feed on leftover items left on your clothes.  Our experts can clean all types of fabrics, and our toxin-free cleaning processes won’t leave your clothes smelling like chemicals.

  Steam and iron your clothes.

Steaming and ironing your clothes will save you time when winter arrives again.  You won’t need to spend hours steaming and ironing.  Instead, you can take out your neatly folded clothes from storage, and they’ll be ready to go.

  Choose storage options that fit both your space and your clothes.

If your using bins, make sure to pack the heaviest items on the bottom. Bins are great for items like jeans and t-shirts.  For more delicate items, like cashmere sweaters and blazers, use canvas bags.  Wrap them in tissue paper before placing them in the canvas bags. If you have a larger closet, you can hang your winter clothes towards the back of the closet.  At Mulberrys & GreenStreets, we provide all our customers with wooden hangers.  Our wooden hangers will keep your dry cleaned items in shape as they hang in your closet until next season.

  Make sure your favorite winter items are easily accessible.

You never know when you’ll want to take a trip to another part of the world in the middle of spring.  The spring weather can also be unpredictable, so make sure you can easily grab a light sweater or jacket.  This will help you avoid having to unpack all your clothes just to find one item.

Mulberrys & GreenStreets Dry Cleaner and Laundry provides dry cleaning and laundry services the San Francisco area.  Our experts are ready to help you transition from winter to spring.

The Top 10 Reasons to Use a Toxin-Free Dry Cleaner

For years, dry cleaners have been using harmful chemicals and processes.  From the very beginning, Mulberrys & GreenStreets Dry Cleaning & Laundry has promised to use toxin-free processes to clean its customers’ clothes.  We’re doing our part to help San Francisco stay safe from harmful dry cleaning processes.

green leaf in the sky

Why is this so important? 

There are ten top reasons to use a toxin-free dry cleaner. Some reasons may seem surprising to you, but they are all true and important.  These ten reasons are why we are committed to keeping you, your clothes, and the environment safe.

These reasons don’t apply to all non-toxic dry cleaners, but they do all apply to Mulberrys & GreenStreets.

1. We don’t use PERC. PERC, a common chemical use by dry cleaners, is harmful.  PERC contaminates the environment and has been linked to serious health issues. At Mulberrys & GreenStreets, we don’t use any PERC in our processes. Instead, we use naturally occurring solvents that are safe for you and the environment.

2. The environment is a top priority.  Many businesses today claim to care about the environment, but a non-toxic dry cleaner practices what they preach.  At Mulberrys & GreenStreets, the environment is one of our top priorities. The earth is important to us, and we don’t want to fill it with harmful chemicals that can ruin it for years to come.

3. We make sure our stores are also eco-friendly. Using nontoxic dry cleaning processes is just one part of our business.  Everything we make attempts to be eco-friendly.  At Mulberrys & GreenStreets, we’ve invested in energy-saving operations like LED lights. We are officially a carbon-neutral company which means we contribute zero new carbon to the atmosphere.

4. Harmful chemicals ruin your clothes. Many times, people only think about how chemicals can harm them, but chemicals can also harm your clothes.  That’s right.  The same chemicals that are meant to clean your clothes can harm your clothes, causing them to thin or fade.  Our naturally occurring solvents make sure your clothes are returned to you in pristine condition.

5. We set high standards. We put so much effort and passion into ensuring our processes are safe, and we use that energy also to set high customer service standards.  If you bring your clothes to Mulberrys & GreenStreets and you’re unhappy with your service, we’ll fix the problem no questions asked!  Quality customer service is important to us.

6. You’ll feel less guilty about dry cleaning all your clothes. It’s so much easier to dry clean your clothes, but you can feel guilty at times dry cleaning them too much because of the harmful chemicals.  With nontoxic dry cleaning processes, you can feel less guilty about harming the environment.

7. We have packaging that is eco-friendly. As mentioned in number three, we make sure our stores are eco-friendly.  We also make sure our packaging is environmentally friendly.  All our packaging is biodegradable and recyclable.

8. It’s a way to give back to the environment.  In life, and as humans, we have a lot of choices.  Sometimes, the everyday activities aren’t the most ethical choices.  Gas in our cars pollutes the air.  We chop down trees to build homes and furniture without thinking twice about replanting a tree to fill a forest.  When you visit a non-toxic dry cleaner, you can be sure you’re making a smart decision that helps the earth.

9. We care about our customers. Not only do we care about the earth, but we care about our customers.  Harmful chemicals not only damage the earth, but they can harm humans.  They can irritate your skin or even cause more serious health issues.  At Mulberrys & GreenStreets, we make choices not only for the environment but all human beings.  Safety is a top priority.

10. Your clothes won’t smell like chemicals. Have you ever smelled your clothes after taking them to a traditional dry cleaner?  Your nice, expensive clothing items smell like chemicals.  Toxin-free processes won’t add a chemical stench to your clothes.  When you bring your clothes to Mulberrys & GreenStreets, they’ll be returned to you smelling fresh and clean.

How to Prolong the Life of Your Winter Clothes

January is coming to an end, and before you know it, you’ll be packing away your winter clothes and unpacking your spring outfits. With just a few more winter months left, it’s important to take the appropriate steps with your winter fabrics to ensure they last you for the next several winter seasons.

At Mulberrys & GreenStreets in San Francisco, we pride ourselves on not just being able to dry clean your clothes, but being the experts on all things fabric care related. Our experts can care for your suede, cashmere, wool, and leather items before you put them away for spring.

There are a few steps you can take at home to ensure your cashmere, wool, suede, and leather clothes last for years to come.

1. Cashmere: Cashmere should be dry clean when possible. It’s best to let fabric care experts care for your most expensive clothing items. If you can’t make it to your dry cleaner, hand wash cashmere in cold water. Lay your cashmere flat to dry and dab with a towel to soak up any excess water. Remember always to wash your cashmere before you store it away for the winter. Moths are attracted to scents, like perfume and detergent scents, so use non-scented products. At Mulberrys & GreenStreets, we use non-toxic cleaning processes that keep your clothes from smelling like chemicals.

2. Wool: Wool is best cleaned by a dry cleaner. If you find yourself with a small spot on your wool sweater just minutes before you’re ready to head out the door, blot it with cold water or club soda. Use wood hangers to ensure the shoulders of your wool clothing do not stretch out. When you bring your clothes to Mulberrys & GreenStreets, we provide complimentary wood hangers for all your garments.

Burgundy Women's Clothing

3. Suede: Incorrectly cleaning suede can lead to irreversible damage. It’s best to take your suede items to a professional, like Mulberrys & GreenStreets. You can also use a dry cloth to dab the wet stain and then air dry. To restore the fabric, you can use a suede brush. Always spray your suede with water-repellent spray before wearing it. Store your suede items in a cool, dry, dark place. A wet environment can cause mildew and light can fade the fabric.

Women's Outfit

4. Leather: Leather is best cared for by a leather professional. Mulberrys & GreenStreets experts are trained to care for your leather items. For last minute treatments, use a very damp rag to lightly press on the stain. Apply a small amount of hand soap and continue to press on the stain. Leather is usually not water-repellent, so use as little water as possible. Dab lightly with a dry rag and allow the leather to air dry. Sometimes water can remove some of the leather’s natural oils. You can take a small amount of olive oil and slightly rub it into the leather with a dry rag. When storing your leather items, make sure to store them in a dry area away from moisture.

Mulberrys & GreenStreets Artisan Dry Cleaning and Laundry is devoted to cleaning your most precious winter fabrics. Our locations in San Francisco have specially trained fabric care professionals to care for all your garment care needs. Bring in your winter wardrobe for a nontoxic clean before spring arrives!

How to Keep Your Clothes From Shrinking

                                           Navy Men's ClothingWe’ve all been there.  You take your laundry our from the dryer and your favorite shirt somehow accidentally snuck in and now is the perfect size for a doll.  Your tiny shirt is then thrown into the pile of misfit clothes, and you frantically search for ways to get your favorite shirt back to its original size.  Shrinking your clothes can be a huge problem.

Here at Mulberrys & GreenStreets in San Francisco, we are frequently asked about how to stop clothes from shrinking. Taking your clothes to a dry cleaner can be one way to avoid shrinking clothes, but there are also some extra steps you can take in your laundry room.

It’s difficult to reverse shrinking, but it’s easy to avoid it in the first place. Remember the acronym WASH DRY next time you’re in the laundry room.

Wash with cold water:  Cold water can be less damaging to your clothes. Hot water can cause your clothing to relax which will result in shrinking.

Air dry or tumble dry:  Instead of using the dryer, consider hanging up your clothes to dry.

Spin on gentle cycle: The gentle cycle will help keep the fabric of your clothes in shape.  The longer the spin cycle, the more your clothes are likely to get agitated and shrink.  Some dryers have a “tumble” setting.  This setting will spin dry your clothes using only motion, not heat.

Hand wash:  If your washer or dryer does not have a gentle cycle, consider hand washing your clothes.

Dry clean:  Clothes made of natural fibers should be taken to a dry cleaner.  At Mulberrys & GreenStreets, we use processes that avoid shrinking your clothes. Stop by your local Mulberrys & GreenStreets in San Francisco and we’ll be happy to dry clean them for you using our non-toxic processes. 

Read labels:  Fabrics like cotton and wool that have a tendency to shrink will have explicit washing and drying directions. Always read the clothing labels.

Yell at your washer and dryer..then replace them:  Sometimes the problem can be your washer and dryer.  The temperature and settings may not be working properly, causing your clothes to shrink despite taking all the necessary steps.  You can also bring your clothes to Mulberrys & GreenStreets in San Francisco and we’ll take care of them for you.

Mulberrys & GreenStreets uses award-winning processes and services to remove spots and when you get your clothing back, you’ll know your clothes were not victims of shrinking.  We recommend always bringing in your clothes that are made of natural fibers, such as wool, to be dry cleaned.  It’s the best way to avoid shrinking your favorite items.  Our wet cleaning services use new, gentle washing methods and biodegradable soaps and conditioners to ensure your clothes are properly cleaned.

All our locations in San Francisco are staffed with dry cleaning and laundry experts.

5 Surprising Ways a Tailor can Update Your Wardrobe

A tailor is often seen as someone who fixes damaged clothes.

Did you know a tailor can also be a fashion designer?

Each season, closets around the country are cleaned out, and old styles placed in the trash.  Before you throw out your shoulder pad sweater from the 80’s, consider taking it to a tailor at your local dry cleaner for a fashion update. You don’t need to spend a fortune on new clothes. 

Not all dry cleaners offer tailoring services and alterations, but at Mulberrys & GreenStreets we believe clothes shouldn’t just be clean.  They should be the perfect fit to make you feel and look your best.

Here are 5 simple ways to freshen up your look with the help of a tailor at your local Mulberrys  & GreenStreets location.

1.  Reinvent the neckline.  A flattering neckline can make or break an outfit. A tailor can transform the neckline of your favorite dress or shirt. Cowl necks can turn into halters. Collars can vanish from button downs.  Turtlenecks can become v-necks.  A tailor will help redesign a neckline to fit your personal style.

2.  Button replacement.  A simple button replacement can spruce up any traditional dress shirt.  If you happen to lose a button, a tailor can replace it with a similar button.  If you happen to get bored of the simple white buttons on your dress shirt, a tailor can replace them with colorful or patterned buttons.

3.  Add an exposed zipper.  A tailor can replace a broken zipper, but they can also add a zipper for a bold fashion statement.  An exposed zipper is an edgy look for a simple black cocktail dress or a straight leg dress pant. 

4.  Lengthen a shirt hem. A curved, shirttail hem adds an extra flare to any shirt.  It also helps avoid bunching when tucked into a pair of pants, giving you a clean look.  Your tailor can assist in determining the perfect shirt hem for your specific style.

5. Hem jeans.  Have you been wearing a pair of jeans that perfectly fit your hips but are too long?  A few inches off of the bottom will make all the difference.  A tailor can remove the amount of fabric needed from the bottom of your jeans and reattach your worn/distressed hem to the bottom of the new length.

At Mulberrys and GreenStreets, our tailors have over 30 years of hands-on experience and can assist with minor fixes to major alterations.

Bring your clothes to any of our locations in San Francisco.  And while you’re giving your old clothes a fresh start, consider dry cleaning them, too!

Should you dry clean your children’s clothing?

A young boy and knowledge whiz is ready to teach the class. Just add smart copy for the perfect concept.

Make sure your child’s dry cleaning is toxin-free

Should You Dry Clean Children’s Clothing?

Do you have children or grandchildren? If you do, then you certainly know that kids have a tendency to be messy and they can get their clothing dirty very quickly. Kids also go through clothing quickly. Not only are they messy and rough on the clothes, but they also grow quickly. Dry cleaning everything the kids own is not feasible for most parents today. That’s okay though; you don’t have to dry clean everything. Instead, you need to think about which items you should be bringing to the dry cleaners in San Francisco.

What Needs Dry Cleaning?

You don’t have to worry about bringing the t-shirts and jeans for your kids to the dry cleaner. Any of the “everyday” clothing that they have can be washed regularly. What you do want to do, though, is look at the pieces of clothing that are dry clean only, and those that are high-end. These aren’t going to fare well in a washing machine, and if you want them to last, you will take them to your dry cleaner in San Francisco.

Suits, dresses, and quality pieces of clothing for formal events should certainly be dry cleaned. However, that’s not all. Check the coats and other clothing in your children’s wardrobe. If the tag says it needs to be dry cleaned, it’s generally a good idea to follow those instructions. This helps keep those clothes in good shape for longer.

Once the child outgrows those clothes, though, you don’t have to get rid of them. If you have other younger children, save them for the others as they get older. You could also give them away to nieces or nephews. You could sell them or even donate them. Of course, all this is predicated on whether they are in good shape or not. If they aren’t still looking great, you can be sure your other children will not want to wear these hand-me-downs.

Proper care means you can pass clothing down for many years and it will still look great. Of course, you might want to make sure that the clothes are still fashionable! Go through your kids’ wardrobe the next time you have a chance and see what might need to be dry cleaned. Chances are there are at least a couple of items. Take care of them and they will keep the kids looking great as long as they fit the clothes.

Make sure it’s toxin-free

One major issue to be aware of is the chemicals used by your dry cleaners. Some dry cleaners still use toxic chemicals that can be harmful to children. Before taking you child’s clothing make sure that your dry cleaner uses toxin-free solvents and detergents.

Store and Care for the Clothing Properly

One thing that affects how long clothes will last and how they look is how you store them. You will generally want to keep your dry cleaned clothing hung and protected. If you have any questions about properly storing your clothing, you can get in touch with us at Mulberrys & GreenStreets. We are ready to help you with all of your dry cleaning needs, whether it is for clothing for the adults or children in the house – or both! We offer many different services that can help you and your family to stay looking sharp.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA. December 7, 2016Mulberrys — the Minnesota-based artisan laundry and dry cleaning service — today announced its expansion to the west coast with the acquisition of San Francisco-based Mulberrys & GreenStreets Cleaners.
Mulberrys will now own and operate ten Mulberrys & GreenStreets storefront locations and two proprietary Cleaning Labs in the San Francisco Bay Area, providing the same toxin-free dry cleaning service and bespoke customer experience that has made the company so popular in Minnesota’s Twin Cities region.

Making Dry Cleaning Convenient

mulberrys dry cleaners
Convenience in Dry Cleaning Remains Important to Customers

One of the most important things to consider when it comes to taking care of your clothes is whether they need to be dry cleaned or not. Many people balk at the idea of taking their clothes to the dry cleaner because they see it as a hassle. People today are very busy, and they want to find a method that’s more convenient for them. Fortunately, there are some great dry cleaners in San Francisco, such as Mulberrys & GreenStreets, who are listening.

There are a number of things you should think about when you are looking for a dry cleaner that offers real convenience.

Drop Off When Convenient

You might worry that you don’t have the time to drop off your clothing to the dry cleaner during business hours. In the past, it would mean you needed to give up your lunch break or figure out some other way to drop off and pick up your clothing. That’s not a problem when the business has a 24/7 drop-off at their stores. It means that you can drop off the clothing when it is convenient for you.

Same Day Service

Another one of the great convenient features of companies like Mulberrys & GreenStreets is the same day service option. If you really need to have your item or items of clothing by the end of the day, you can make it happen. Just make sure you get in contact with the store and ask them what you need to do, and the time you need to drop off, to get it the same day. Don’t worry about not having a great looking suit for your next big meeting.

Pickup and Delivery

This is perhaps one of the best features available when it comes to dry cleaning and convenience. Now, you don’t even have to worry about dropping off and picking up your clothing. Instead, you can have the dry cleaners take care of everything for you. This makes it very easy to enjoy the benefits of dry cleaning without the hassle. This saves you a trip down to the dry cleaners, which is nice if they happen to be out of the way. Using our website or mobile app, Mulberrys & GreenStreets can now pickup in as little as 15 minutes.

Other Services

Dry cleaners in San Francisco are doing much more to improve their service for customers. Namely, some are adding other services, which can make them far more useful to customers. Some of the companies are offering shoe shine and shoe repair. If you have a pair of shoes that you don’t want to replace, consider getting them repaired. You can also have your shoes shined before your next interview.

Mulberrys & GreenStreets offers these services, as well as leather cleaning, tailoring and alterations, and even wedding dress cleaning and preparation. With all of these benefits, there is no reason to avoid dry cleaning any longer. If you have clothes that could benefit from a professional dry cleaning service, it’s time that you acted. It’s easier than ever, and dry cleaning offers a number of fantastic benefits.
