Eco-friendly drycleaning that's kinder to the planet...
We are mindful of the impact drycleaning can have on the environment, so we strive to go the extra mile to keep Regal clean and green! Regal Drycleaners use advanced cleaning methods based on biodegradable components and have also invested heavily in leading edge European drycleaning technology to achieve this goal. Regal are one of the few drycleaners to solely use a gentle cleaning solution that is both biodegradable and eco-friendly.
Kinder to your clothes
As well as being environmentally-friendly, this approach is also garment-friendly. This process is widely regarded as a gentle drycleaning option which allows a greater range of decorated, beaded & delicate garments to be cleaned successfully with the least possible risk. Although it costs us more, it means your clothes receive hand-finished attention, leaving them looking better and lasting longer than ever. Plus, not only does this innovation give us significant environmental advantages over other drycleaning technologies but the process leaves no residual odour on your clothing!
Bio degradable packaging
Regal Drycleaners not only care about your clothes but also care about the environment and are the first drycleaner in New Zealand to use eco-friendly packaging. We protect our garments using bio-film – a biodegradable material designed to fully degrade in sunlight. Whilst this is more expensive to us than traditional plastic film, we believe contributing non-degradable plastic waste on thousands of garments per week would have a detrimental effect on our environment long term.
Another environmental contribution well supported by our customers is the recycling of garment hangers and Couture Care garment bags. This allows our customers who aren’t going to reuse their garment bags the option to allow us to recycle these thereby minimising landfill wastage.
How many times have you thrown out a beloved item because its ruined? Pause for a moment before your next disposal, and make sure it cannot be revived. Regal have restoration services for all sorts of issues.
A colour enrichment service deepens faded colours, that may have lightened over time from washing, sunlight or just age. Colour enrichment works best on dark colours such as black, navy, forest green and maroon, and works great on silky delicate fabrics. Bring your favourite garment back to life with some fresh dark colour.
A softening treatment for silks and delicate fabrics that have gone stiff from an accidental trip to the washing machine. Just because you (or your partner…) washed that expensive silk dress does not mean it’s a complete write-off. There may still be hope, and a delicate dryclean and texturiser service can re-soften fabrics back to their slinky state.
Oxy whitening treatment
The name says it all. This treatment whitens your whites again, getting rid of that odd off-white tinge that they get over time. Great for yellowed, grubby, tanned, make up soiled garments, or just whites that have been in the wardrobe too long. This treatment can be used on all sorts of garments from blazers, to business shirts, to linen and sheets.
Has your rain jackets/ski gear lost some of its water resistant layer over time? We can reproof certain items to add back this layer, making items ‘shower-proof’ again for light water protection.
A de-smelling treatment for garments with strong odours. An oxygenation process is used in a treatment cabinet, to extract smells that will not come out in a clean. Musty, smoky, old garments can be worn again after this treatment!
Dye run treatment
How many garments have been ruined in the wash and had to throw out? Regal have treatments that are specifically for extracting loose dyes that may have bled through a garment.
If something comes out of the wash a few sizes smaller, this can still be salvaged. Many fabrics can be revived using steam relaxation techniques.
It sounds obvious, but we’ve heard too many stories about garments that were written off from mould, red wine, or worse. You would not believe what can be removed in the hands of Regal’s magicians. Even something as simple as that oily spot that will not come out no matter how many times you wash it? Hand it over to us, and we will take care of it.
Repairs and alterations
Just because something is damaged, the zip is broken, or the button fell off does not justify a shopping spree. Get it mended and back to the front of your wardrobe for wear.
