We surveyed many drycleaning professionals and received the following frequently asked questions.
Q: Plastic bags are see-through, if I change to The Green Garmento™, how will I see my customers' clothes?
A: The Green Garmento has a side zipper so you and your customers can easily see their garments before they leave your store.
You can bag put all of your customer's clean clothes in the bag while the order is being completed.
Q: Does The Green Garmento Protect As Well As Plastic?
A: Yes, The Green Garmento protects garments from water, dust and wrinkling, while allowing the garments to breathe. The built-in gussets on each side of the bag allows for plenty of room for each garment to hang gently while being protected from outside elements.
Q: Does The Green Garmento have the same warnings as plastic?
A: There are federal warnings to consumers to remove plastic dry cleaning bags immediately from garments to protect them from harmful chemicals that get trapped in the plastic.
The Green Garmento is made from a breathable, non-woven polypropelyne, a recyclable material that does not trap harmful chemicals like plastic does.
Q: How will I know which bag goes with which order?
A: The outside plastic ticket pocket will help you easily identify your customer's order.
Q: I don't have space for The Green Garmento. How do I make room?
A: There are small handles on each end of the bag allowing it to hang easily on any hook or "arm" on a wall. The fabric is very thin and all bags can be "smooshed" together in a tight place. If stored correctly, The Green Garmento shouldn't take up much more space than a few rolls of plastic.
Q: I have a system and it works. Why should I change it?
A: In order to get used to The Green Garmento, we realize your system will have to change slightly. The revenue you generate, the money you save by not using plastic bags and the good you do for the environment will be worth it.
Q: Is the Green Garmento washable?
A: Yes, the Green Garmento washes very well in cold water. It dries very quickly, we suggest hang dry or cool dryer to prolong the life of the bag.
