    Great job with Cleaning & Preserving my Wedding Dress

    Dependable Cleaners in Milton did a nice job cleaning and preserving my wedding gown. I appreciated the detail and care they took walking me through the process and getting to view the gown before it was boxed. I wasn't able to pick up the gown for awhile due to COVID-19, but it was kept safe. Thank you for the great work!

    Unbelievable dress restoration and redesign!

    Ling is a miracle worker. Since I was a little girl I always knew I wanted to wear my mother’s gown for my wedding and Ling made it happen. The original dress was a custom design made in the 80's and while it was beautiful, it needed extensive work to be updated for today’s style. Among the many changes, Ling took out volume from the skirt, removed a large bow from the back, redesigned the bustle, removed the puffy shoulders and completely rebuilt the sleeves. She also made the sleeves removable so I could have a different option for the reception. I can’t imagine the hours she spent on it, but she truly made my dreams come true!

    Not just for wedding dress

    We have a Christening gown that is over 100 years old and was made from parts of my wife's grandmother's wedding dress. My wife and her sisters were Christened in it as were our sons and most recently our new grand daughter. After the ceremony, we went to Dependable Cleaners because there we some spots and stains. They very professionally repair the damaged areas and removed all stains and then packaged the gown for safe storage. A great team to work with and a great services. The gown in now back to flawless condition.

The care and admiration the staff at Dependable cleaners has for wedding gowns and their owners, the bride, is visible at each step in the process of cleaning and preserving. When one of our brides really wants to preserve her gown in a way that will make it a viable option for her daughter 25-30 years in the future, I recommend she put her trust in Ken Grippi and the Dependable cleaners team. Time and again I receive a quick note letting me know how well they and their treasured gown was treated and how relieved they are to have made the choice of Dependable Cleaners.
