Happy 4th of July from DD French Cleaners

We will be CLOSED for Vacation,
Sunday July 1st through Sunday July 8th

The 4th of July, like Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s is one of the few national holidays that escaped the Uniform Monday Holiday Act of 1968.

And I like that.  It gives the day the specialness that the celebration of our American  Independence deserves.

I hope you have a wonderful 4th, and that you take a moment at some point during the day to give thanks to our Founding Fathers and all the brave men and women who in the years since 1776 have fought to protect our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Take care.  See you soon

  Swimwear Care-
Tips to Make Your Favorite Swimsuit Last 

  • Wet down your bathing suit with tap water before taking a dip in the pool. Remember: Two things can’t occupy the same space at the same time, so a ‘pre-wet’ bathing suit won’t absorb as much chlorine from the pool water as a dry suit will.

  • Remove and rinse your suit in tap water BEFORE you lay down to sun bath.  The UV rays from the sun will accelerate the deleterious effects of the chlorine in your suit.  Or better yet, rinse your suit well and put on a fresh, dry suit for sun bathing.

  • Bathing suits that are 100 percent polyester will fare best in a hot tub.

  • Some suits come with labels that say “chlorine resistant.”

  • Never wash a bathing suit in the washing machine. The agitation will break down the Lycra and the bra cups.

  • Never put a bathing suit in the dryer. The heat will cause the elastic to break down faster.  Always dry it away from the sun, FLAT on a drying rack.
