Dry Cleaning Chatswood

How do we know if something requires dry cleaning? Sometime a garment is labelled dry clean only; sometime there is no obvious label and individuals must decipher symbols.
DRY CLEAN ONLY is fairly self-explanatory. Washing by convention methods, even once, will damage the fabric, often beyond repair.

DRY CLEAN is sometimes the preferred method. An item labelled this way can probably be cleaned by conventional methods, but we don’t guarantee it. Dry cleaning may mean the garment will last much longer. If the item is expensive we strongly recommend dry cleaning.

If there is no label, possibly because it has been removed, then the type of fabric should be a good indication of what method to use. Silk, satin, and velvet are almost always better kept with dry cleaning. Cotton, nylon and polyester are fine for conventional machine washing with detergent. Wool varies; loose fitting cardigans and pullovers can be washed with water that isn’t too hot; any heat will cause shrinkage, so hot dryers cannot be used. Any wool that is part of a shaped garment, like a suit, should be dry cleaned, especially if it is mixed with another material. Dry cleaning will allow the suit to keep its shape; conventional cleaning will cause the garment to age prematurely.

Items that are of a mixed fabric type are sometime subject to problem shrinkage. This is most noticeable when the different materials shrink at different rates, causing the garment to loose shape.

Any suits or dresses with linings, embroidery, glued items or delicate trimmings should be dry cleaned, unless there are a manufacturer’s instructions that say otherwise.

A circle around a letter on the label means dry clean only. The letter, usually P, F, or A indicates the type or dry cleaning required.

A cross put through a circle means DO NOT dry clean. This is relatively rare.

If in doubt about any item ask dry cleaning, Chatswood.


Security Doors

It’s hard to know which aspect of security doors to promote first, the safety they provide from criminal elements, or the advantages they provide for letting the light and fresh air in. Really, their appeal lies in the fact they can do both at once.

When criminals do try to enter a residence they use a doorway about two thirds of the time. Laminated doors provide little protection against this. Solid wooden doors are far more effective, but steel edged doors provided the best protection of all, outperforming the more general quality doors by seven to one.

Quality metal security doors are light weight, offer protection against breaking and entering that is at least as good as any other door, and allow air and light in while still keeping insects out.

A well designed door also includes a well-designed door-frame. It is of little use to have a solid door if the potential burglars can enter by breaking the surrounding frame. Well-designed door systems include a deadbolt that enters the solid materials of the house itself, and screws that also attach to the main frame of the house. When set up correctly the security door can be as secure as the main walls of the house it occupies.

Security doors measure can also be applied to windows. This is a less risky area when it comes to break-ins, but if residents want complete protection, especially with larger windows, then steel mesh window frames prove to be near impenetrable.


Eyelash Extension Supplies

The supplies for eyelash extensions consists of a lot of small items that must be applied or utilized carefully. It is never cost effective to source these from multiple suppliers as the postage and delivery costs would outweigh the cost of the individual items. A single supplier for all eyelash extension products makes more sense.

The actual extensions are most popular in mink and silk, with single, double or triple lashes. Lashes can be ordered pre-fanned or in large qualities in a more compact form. The curl of the lashes is variable, as is the thickness (0.15 mm to 0.25mm) and length (up to 16mm).

Mascara wands are one of the most used items for natural eyelashes and artificial ones. Natural eyelashes use them for the actual purpose of applying mascara; artificial eyelashes benefit from the use of mascara wands to keep the lashes neat and tidy. A fairly cheap item, even with a higher quality product, a mascara wand tends to last for a considerable amount of time. They are more often lost than worn out.

Lash Primer is used to clean the eyelid area before applying any new products. For only a few dollars, for a bottle that lasts for many applications, lash primer is a sound investment as it makes the most of your artificial eyelash products.

Under Eye collagen gel patches isolate the lashes on the lower eyelid. This is a safe and more comfortable way to treat the lashes, and has the added benefit of applying Collagen and Arbutin to the skin, a useful anti-aging and beauty treatment.

Tweezers come in several varieties. Even technicians who prefer and mostly use one type generally buy several variations; the situations where they are needed will frequently occur. As something used with every eyelash application a set of tweezers is a sound investment.

Glue is essential for attaching artificial eyelashes. 5 second glue is specifically designed for eyelash application. It is suitably strong and, more importantly, appropriately fast bonding. Irritaton and allergic reaction are rare with this type or product. Lashes will stay attached for several week – as long as the base lash is attached.

Micro brushes are essential for lash application. Disposable, cheap and bought in bulk there is no reason not to stock up and keep a plentiful supply.

Heated eyelash curlers are great for applying a curl to straight lashes. Straight lashes look ordinary and can also hang low enough to interfere with eyesight

A stone or crystal pallet is used to keep you glue handy while you apply the lashes. It helps considerably by keeping the glue cool.
