Garment Care Advisory. Garde Robe strives to provide ready-to-wear delivery for all items placed in our care. In order to ensure that member’s wardrobe items remain in good, ready-to-wear condition, Garde Robe strongly recommends that members clean every article of clothing before storing items for an extended period of time. While some articles of clothing will visibly appear clean, clothing may have stains that are not necessarily visible to the human eye. For example, body oils, perspiration, antiperspirant, perfume, clear liquids and other liquids and oils can cause “invisible stains.” Despite ideal climate conditions at Garde Robe’s facilities, such invisible stains will oxidize over time and cause a yellowing and deterioration of the fabric. All textiles should be cleaned prior to long-term storage.
“Garde Robe caters to those with extensive seasonal wardrobes by photographing and cataloging clothing onto its web site – lest you forget where those springtime open-toed Jimmy Choos went.”
