WEDDING DRESS CLEANING

Preserve your dress, preserve your memories

Avoid yellowing

Traditional wedding dress cleaning leaves a chemical residue that causes fine fabrics to yellow over time. Your gown and your keepsakes deserve better. Wet cleaning is the best way to preserve wedding dresses, ensuring your dress stays as white as the day you walked down the aisle.

Expert stain removal

Some wedding dress stains are obvious. Wine and food? Dirt and sweat? Icing and alcohol? Seen it, cleaned it. Others, however, can be hiding in plain sight. Perfume, sugar and sweat won’t be visible at first, but if left untreated, they can darken and become permanent.

For the future

Wet Cleaning is safer for humans and the environment than all other cleaning methods and especially better for fine fabrics and delicate embellishments. That means the safest, most effective cleaning for your favorite parts of your gown – the lace details, the beaded bodice, the vintage applique. What drew you to the dress in the first place will be safest in our hands.

Museum quality dress preservation kits

Our wedding dress preservation kits utilize museum quality processes and materials to not only clean your gown but preserve it in pristine condition. Protecting it from outside harm like moisture, pests and light means your dress will be as sparkling as the day you wore it.

PRESERVATION

Smart preservation

For over 50 years, dry-cleaners have been cleaning gowns with petroleum solvents and using staples, tape, fasteners, and plastic windows to make dresses look good in their boxes. We believe the cleanliness and longevity of the textile are most important, and have designed museum quality preservation options that make it easy to store your gown while protecting it from moisture, pests, and UV rays.

What our brides our saying

I am so thrilled! I wanted to surprise my mother for her 70th wedding anniversary (yes 70th!) by having her 100 year old wedding dress preserved. Her mother wore it in 1915 and she wore it for her wedding. I live in Florida, I was going to visit family in austin and called several cleaners who would not touch it. When I called EcoClean and spoke to Kerstin Shoberg, she was happy to help out. I traveled to Austin with the dress and was not disappointed. EcoClean did a beautiful job of arranging the dress in a lovely window box. I sent it to my mother in Maryland. When she opened it she just could not believe it. It brought tears to both my mom and Dad. Thank you EcoClean for your time and attention to detail. It was truly appreciated by all! Kathy

Cleaning and Preserving FAQs

Wedding Dress Preservation is the process of cleaning, arranging and boxing a gown to prepare it for long-term storage and protect it from deterioration. All fabrics can be harmed by tensile stress (from hanging), moisture, UV Rays, pests, heat, chemical residue, and long-term exposure to foreign substances. Proper preservation starts with stain treatment and washing in a wet cleaning process. After a dress is thoroughly cleaned, it is hand pressed by our team in Austin and delicately arranged in a museum quality storage box. Wet cleaning is an essential part of the process as it eliminates the possibility of yellowing through time because no petroleum solvents are used to clean the fabric.

Shoes are one of the many wedding accessories we are happy to clean and preserve along with your gown. It is important to properly remove the scuff marks and soil as soon as possible after the wedding. Choose the Package that includes the right number of accessories for you.

A wedding is a complicated affair with complicated attire! Most often brides have more than just a dress to preserve forever. EcoClean’s Mail Order wedding Dress and Preservation Packages include options to clean and preserve as many accessories as you like so that the entire trousseau can be preserved and stored together as a keepsake.

Unfortunately, EcoClean is not able to clean a wedding dress prior to its use in a wedding ceremony. Wedding dresses are complex garments and there is some possibility that the cleaning will take longer than anticipated. Wedding ceremonies with the associated immovable date on a calendar, cannot accommodate the schedule flexibility that might be required.

Heavy soil on the bottom six inches of a wedding gown is common these days. Don’t worry! EcoClean can remove dirt from wedding dress hems. Our wet cleaning process is the very best way to get your entire dress back to pre-wedding perfection… just see our before and after pictures!

Other preservations

If you have garments or other cloth items that are important to you and want to make sure they are around for a long time, we are able to preserve a broad range of items. We can preserve christening gowns, first communion garments, quinceanera dresses, military uniforms, blankets and afghans.
