At RAVE FabriCARE, your garments are individually and elegantly packaged using premium materials such as heavy duty, wide clip and contoured hangers; breathable sweater bags; soft, white, acid-free tissue; and extra-wide, heavy gauge poly.
Individual packaging, using quality materials, ensures that your garments and household textiles are protected during transportation and short-term storage. And that they are ready to be worn or used – without having to be refinished. At home or on the road.
Contrast this to the vast majority of ordinary cleaners where multiple garments are stuffed into an ultra-thin, narrow poly bag. And where your entire order is then crammed onto a holding rack or conveyor.
In order to significantly reduce the human element in the assembly and conveyoring process, many ordinary cleaners have introduced automated assembly and conveyoring equipment. Some have even extended this automated system to deliver your garments through a 24/7 “self serve window”.
This means that your easily wrinkled and/or more fragile garments – such as your cotton, linen and silk blouses and shirts – are being shuttled around the cleaner’s plant by automated equipment. And, in the process, they’re being crushed between other heavier garments – such as coats, sport coats, blazers, sweaters, trousers and slacks. Like slabs of meat winding their way through a slaughter house. Then your completed order is being slotted onto a sorting conveyor by the same automated equipment – again, with total disregard to the type of garment in each order.
If this is the level of handling care exhibited after “cleaning” and “pressing” (what you see), imagine the level of care applied to your fine garments and household textiles during the “cleaning” and “pressing” process (what you don’t see).
In recent years, many ordinary cleaners have “upgraded” their packaging – everything from logo-printed tissue paper and tinted poly to wishbone-shaped wood and chrome hangers – in an attempt to convince their customers that the quality of their cleaning has been similarly upgraded.
At RAVE FabriCARE, we believe that excellent packaging can and does enhance and protect garments and household textiles that have been cleaned and finished to perfection.
We also believe that upgraded packaging on ordinary cleaning will be quickly seen for what it is – an attempt to pass off bang and hang cleaning or ordinary cleaning as true quality cleaning.
There’s an old saying in the dry cleaning business that, no matter how you cut it, cafeteria food served on fine china is still just that – cafeteria food.
Or as we like to say: fish and chips in a caviar wrapping.
