"Been using them for 14 years. They clean the clothes in-house--no shipping them around town like some places. I don't have problems with my clothes disappearing like other places I have tried."

"Crest is very gentle with my clothes and when I go to drop them off (with stains like mine you should), they review the garment with me and notate every stain and even discuss with me how they will treat it. They then review the material and let me know of any risks/dangers (if any) and ask if I want to proceed."

"Of all the dry cleaners I have been to in my life, Crest has all the things I've ever wanted. The feeling that I got when I first came here was similar to when I first bought an Ipod and stood in amazement at all the features that I ever wanted on a portable music device."
- Jason

"I'm an "organic" nut and I'm very conscientious about what I eat, what I breathe in, and what I touch, especially when it comes to carcinogenic materials. Perchloroethylene (Perc for short) is the cleaning agent used in almost all dry cleaners. That thing is highly toxic and Crest does not use it. "
- Jason

What’s the Most Effective Way to Kill Viruses on Clothes?

As the coronavirus spreads, Crest Advanced Dry Cleaners is doing our part to keep Northern Virginia and Maryland communities safe. First and foremost: limit your exposure to the virus. That means practicing everyday good hygiene, social distancing, using (and quickly disposing of) tissues when coughing or sneezing, washing your hands thoroughly and often, and applying anti-bacterial hand gel when in a pinch. These are steps we all can take to reduce spreading germs further. But what about your clothes?

It’s not yet clear how long the coronavirus COVID-19 can live outside the human body. Resources from the World Health Organization indicate the virus “may persist on surfaces for a few hours or up to several days.” That means your clothes could potentially act as a carrier for the pathogen. The virus might even lurk in your towels and bed sheets, especially if they are used by more than one person. Now more than ever, it’s important to clean and disinfect the areas around you.

Does Dry Cleaning Really Kill Bacteria, Allergens, and Viruses?

Most modern household washers and driers do a good job of removing dirt and grime from your garments. The key to stymieing a virus like COVID-19, however, is direct, sustained, and very high temperatures. The Center for Disease Control recommends temperatures exceeding 167 degrees Fahrenheit to eliminate viruses for sure.

Bleach is also an effective killer of viruses, but this might not be recommended for use on all your garments. For a quick fix (say, if someone coughed on you while riding the Metro), a comprehensive ironing can reduce the microorganisms and potentially disease-causing germs hiding in your fabrics, too. But overall, the easiest and most effective way to sanitize any fabric is dry cleaning. During our professional-level cleaning processes and the pressing of your garments on our state-of-the-art equipment, germs and viruses don’t stand a chance!
