Your clothes are more important to you, and us, so we share tips of our trade.

Before your next trip to ZIPS, take a gander at some of our top tips and advice. We’ll help you decipher the icons on the tag of your favorite dress, or the best way to take care of those perfect jeans that you finally found after trying on 22 pairs.

Taking the best care of your clothes is our job, but consider these tips in between dry cleaning visits to ensure a long, happy life for your favorite pieces.

Garment Care Tips

You can bring your machine-washable items to ZIPS and they’ll look better than after the wash at home. But if you do try these tips, be sure to follow the washing instructions.

*These at-home care tips should only be followed for washable items. Please make sure the dyes in the garments and fabrics are colorfast before attempting any stain removal or special treatment. And FYI – labels that say wash separately or “with like colors” indicate that the fabric is NOT colorfast.

Household Item Tips

A good rule of thumb – clean whenever and as often as you’d like. It’s your home, right?
