Maintaining your Shoes & Luggage

The life of your shoes can be greatly extended if they are rested between use. If you wear suede or nubuck shoes, brush them regularly. The...

Wet Cleaning


Wet cleaning is a process that dry cleans with water instead of traditional solvents used in standard dry cleaning. Traditional dry cleaning is very effective on oil based stains but not water based stains or strong odors. At Jeeves we use this process for garments that are that are "dry clean only" but would benefit from this unique technology.

During wet cleaning non-toxic detergents and conditioners are used to lift dirt out of the garment and revitalize the fabric. The garments are agitated in the computerized wetcleaning machine just enough to extract the dirt and grime, but not enough to alter the structure, size or color.

The garments are then transferred to a high-tech drying unit that senses humidity as many as 400 times per minute. Most shrinkage actually occurs as a garment goes from damp to completely dry. To ensure that no shrinkage occurs, the dryer automatically stops once the prescribed level of moisture is reached. During drying, the conditioners that were added earlier are heat-activated to soften and freshen the garment. Post cleaning specialised finishing equipment is used to return the garment to its original form
