Wedding Gown Cleaning, Preservation, and Restoration Service

We are proud to be recognized as San Diego’s Best Wedding Gown Cleaner

Let your wedding dress remain a treasured memento from the best day of your life

Your bridal gown may be one of the most important garments you will ever wear, and we would like to ensure that you are able to cherish it forever. Often, bridal gowns are stored away and forgotten, until they emerge, many years later, discolored, stained, permanently creased, and moth ridden. Whether you are wearing something borrowed or second-hand, or if you’d just like to keep your wedding dress in your closet for as long as time allows, then you need to turn to a trusted professional to properly clean and restore it. At Magic Touch Cleaners, we will take exceptional care of your dress as if it was our own. It will receive special cleaning, and restoration, if needed, until it’s finally placed in an acid-free preservation box that ensures your wedding dress stays pristine for generations to come (100-years guaranteed!).

We also service other ceremonial gowns, sentimental garments, and cherished household textiles.

A few facts about the museum-quality WCPC cleaning and preservation

  • The hand cleaning, hand finishing, restoration and archival preservation of the bridal gown is a scientifically informed discipline. There is a growing body of scientific research on the process of textiles, including bridal gowns, and how they deteriorate over time.
  • System K4 is used by museum textile conservators for preservation, and now it is being used for dresses. Your dress will be considered museum quality.
  • It is 100% safe for the environment, non-toxic, and harmless to humans
  • It is able to remove most water soluble (grass, food and dirt) and lyophilic (fat, oils and grease) stains, including the ones you cannot see with your naked eye but are still harmful to your garment.
  • Removes all orders, including smoke
  • Offers protection, and a 100-year guarantee against any future ‘graying or ‘yellowing’ of fabric
  • It’s safe on delicate fabrics, beading, sequins and other embellishments
  • There is a chance that we can restore your gown even if it’s been contaminated by water, smoke, soot, fire, mold, mildew and/or humidity as a result of a flood or fire.

What Happens During the Wedding Dress Restoration Process?

Upon receiving your gown, it goes through an intense fabric analysis to determine which treatment(s) will be the most effective to prevent fabric wear and staining, to yellowing and graying. Once the fabric is restored, the dress goes through a multi-point inspection to check for loose adornments, fabric pull and, if needed, a full replacement of lace, fabric, beads or buttons. Each wedding dress that is restored goes through a final restoration treatment that prevents the dress from graying or yellowing, and allows the dress to be worn again in the future. All dresses are given a 100 year anti-yellowing guarantee.
