Bridgestone Cleaners locations will serve as drop off destinations for those donating gowns now through March 31. We feel it’s a great cause to help many young women in Brooklyn feel special
Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
There are many different types of gowns for women to wear on formal occasions – wedding, ball, prom, quinceanera – and Brooklyn’s leading green dry cleaning expert Ken Kinzer of Bridgestone cleaners has seen, and cleaned, them all.
“I see more things alike with prom dresses and wedding gowns. Both are being worn at parties dragged on the floor, covered with beverage, food and whatever stains,” says Bridgestone Cleaners’ Ken Kinzer.
Gowns are very important to Ken and he recognizes how important they are to many young ladies in Brooklyn during prom season and that is why he is putting Bridgestone Cleaners support behind Operation PROM Brooklyn – an inaugural dress drive to collect gowns and cocktail dresses for those who can't purchase their own.
“Bridgestone Cleaners locations will serve as drop off destinations for those donating gowns now through March 31. We feel it’s a great cause to help many young women in Brooklyn feel special.”
Mr. Kinzer also has some advice for how to care for those gowns to keep them in tip top shape.
“The trick is in stain identification and that's where over 30 years experience and training not only in dry cleaning but also in the technology of wet cleaning, comes in,” Mr. Kinzer said.
Bridgestone Cleaners is one of the leading experts in the field of green dry cleaning in New York City and is part of the GreenEarth Cleaning family, using their non-toxic dry cleaning solution and Eco-friendly wet cleaning techniques.
“Many of the gowns we clean end up having to be cleaned several times in order to return them to new condition. Along with having the experience one needs to have invested in true wet cleaning machinery. After all the FTC is about to add wet cleaning to its care label choices. So wet cleaning is not my Mom's washing machine.”
