Village East Cleaners provides the highest standard of care cleaning your suede and leather garments. However, due to many unknown manufacturing processes with some garments (use of multiple skins, glues, dyes, etc.), we recommend to bring in your suede or leather garments for a professional evaluation.
LEATHER WEAR AND CARE TIPS
Proper care of leather and suede begins at home. To get the maximum life from your garment:
- Wear a scarf to protect the collar area from perspiration and body oils.
- If the garment gets wet, let it air-dry away from heat.
- Store in a cool, ventilated area. Leather can dry out if exposed to dry heat or mildew if stored in a hot, humid environment. Do not store leather in a plastic bag.
- If staining occurs take the garment to a professional suede and leather cleaner as soon as possible. Do not try to remove spots at home.
- Always have matching pieces cleaned at the same time.
PROFESSIONAL CLEANING, WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT AFTER CLEANING
When you bring your suede or leather garment to Village East Cleaners it is helpful if you can provide any care information that came with the garment. Be sure to point out any stains, since stains that are old and set cannot always be removed safely.
Although cleaning technologies for leather and suede are constantly improving, some changes will almost always result from the cleaning process, as these are animal skins.
Variations among the garment’s sections – leather garments are made from skins taken from various portions of the animal and usually from several different animals. The manufacturer tries to match the skins as uniformly as possible, but even the best matching may still show some variance in texture, weight, and color uniformity. These variances may be accentuated after cleaning.
Loss of color—be prepared for a slight variance in the depth of color after cleaning. Skins from various parts of the animal may have different colorfastness. Also, some leather dye may be soluble in dry cleaning fluid, resulting in overall color loss.
Tuxedos come in many styles and materials from wool to polyester and blends. These require different handling during the cleaning process. We clean hundreds of tuxedos each week. We know exactly how to clean and press your tuxedo, and make it look great.
And don’t forget your tuxedo shirt. You want your shirt to look as good as your tuxedo. From light starch to heavy starch, hand pressed collar and cuffs…we do it all… to exceed your expectations.
In the same way we restore heirloom wedding gowns, using museum quality processes, we can often restore you vintage clothing to its heyday. Yellowing and browning can often be reversed and colors brightened. Repairs can be made by our expert seamstresses and tailors. Bring in your clothing for an expert appraisal.
Exquisite Oriental, Persian, Karastan and contemporary area rugs are often a significant investment and prized possession or heirloom and they require proper care and cleaning if you want them to last for many more years. A professional cleaning will deodorize and make the rich colors of your rug become vibrant once again and will also prolong its life.
Most of these rugs are made of wool or silk and are quite durable but you can shorten their life significantly by improper or infrequent cleaning. Village East Cleaners recommends that you never go longer than three years between professional cleanings but if the rug is in a high traffic area then we recommend that you clean it every year.
Dust, sand and grit that sifted deep into the pile where the vacuum cannot reach cause premature wear on a carpet by damaging the fibers when you walk on top of it and so dusting is the most important step in a professional cleaning. We have the safe methods and the setup to do a thorough job which you cannot duplicate at home. If you try “beating” your rug to remove the deep down debris, you are likely just to damage the backing material and loosen the fibers.
Dust also causes your rug to have a stale smell and odors such as smoke seem to embed themselves in the fibers over time. If you have pets please note that pet waste, especially urine, cannot be removed effectively or completely with home-based methods. The chemistry of urine can discolor, bleach or cause colors to bleed; it will also weaken the fibers and backing and make them smell bad especially on humid days.
When you have accidental spills, it is most important to blot them up immediately; do not wait until the guests leave. If your carpet has been previously treated with a protective film the stains will come out much easier. Blot the spill (never rub) with a clean white towel. Start at the outside edge and blot inward to prevent the spill from spreading further. Then rinse with a small amount of plain water only. Do not use club soda or salt to attempt to remove stains. We do not recommend that you use household detergents or carpet cleaners as these may not have been made for your particular type of rug and so may bleach, damage or weaken its fibers.
Please read our area rug care section for tips on how to properly maintain your rug.

Notes about Leather and Suede handbags:
Usually, the color of a cleaned leather or suede purse will vary somewhat from its original color. This is for two reasons: the colorfastness and depth of penetration of the dye and the type of leather used.
Although most couture manufacturers use colorfast dyes, no dye is completely colorfast. If a purse has dark and light areas, sometimes the dark dye will bleed into the light area. A few dyes are soluble in the dry cleaning solvent and it’s impossible to restore them to their original state. Some dyes such as blues, greens and pinks cannot be restored to their original hue because of oxidation or fading caused by sunlight but they can be re-tinted to regain some of their original luster.
Over 70 couture designers recommend us because we uphold the highest standards. When your clothes, linens, or drapes are given to us, you can trust they will be handled with expert care from start to finish.
