Costume Cleaning

Our cleaning services cover a wide range of costumes and over sized garments including sports mascots, dance show costumes, animal outfits, school play costumes, ballgowns and tutus. Feathers? Not a problem! Embellishments? We know how to work around them. Tiny costumes? We’ve done Barbie outfits before! Our expertise has seen it all (almost!).

If we have been part of the design process for your costumes, the beauty is that we know exactly how the garment and fabric behaves. We know what is cleanable, what breathes, and what stressed fabric looks and behaves like. Retain piece of mind by having your costumes cleaned directly from the source.

We have the ability to repair your costumes, and replace embellishments and fabrics on the spot. Our services also include Handbag, Shoe cleaning & repair.
