Dry Cleaning your Blazer

The purpose of this article is to provide some guidance and advice relating to the safe laundering and dry cleaning of your Frederick Irwin School Blazer.

The first rule is that blazers should never be home-laundered. Treat your blazer like any suiting jacket – which is dry clean only. Just like a suit, blazers have high quality fabric (containing wool) together with fusing and lining which must be professionally cleaned. A quality dry cleaner should be used where possible.

The above said, there are some dry cleaners that do not always dry clean in accordance with garment specifications. The primary complaint about dry cleaning is over-heating. When a blazer is over-heated, the fusing (used to make collars and the lapel maintain shape) will come away from the fabric and result in bubbles, a wave pattern or bulging. An experienced dry cleaner will know this and can prevent this from happening.

Frederick Irwin’s blazer manufacturer recommends using a larger-scale dry cleaner rather than small shopping center-based dry cleaners. Larger volume dry cleaners tend to be more professional and have experience with special garments. If you are in any doubt, do not be afraid to ask questions about the dry cleaner’s practices and knowledge.

Sound dry-cleaning practices will ensure your blazer will last longer.

    Please be mindful that all items of clothing MUST have your child’s name on it, this will not only reduce the risk of lost items, which result in additional costs for families but items can easily be returned.

    Second Hand Uniforms – Meadow Springs Only

    Have you any uniforms that no longer fi? Re-sell them through them through the uniform shop. If the items are freshly laundered and in a very good condition, the Uniform Shop would like to assess them to possibly include them in their second-hand section.

    Forms are available from either the uniform shop, Reception or online – you will need the following details:

    • Name and address – so payment can be deducted from your school fees once the items are sold
    • Date purchased – this will help set the selling price

    Items are sold at 60% of the original price, and you will receive 75% of this selling price.
