Category: Dry Cleaning

Ready for the ride of your life?

Sometimes you’ve got to have the right gear for the job. Especially when it’s an exhilarating ice drive from behind the wheel of a Jaguar or Land Rover! We’ve just received these jackets from Monogram Team Wear who supply them for Scandinavian ice drive adventures. These three day excursions take place on the edge of the Arctic circle, and allow those taking part to take some thrilling drives in luxury cars on frozen lakes and snow tracks. The key is to keep warm, and there is no doubt this jackets will do the job.

Our job, albeit it not as exciting as learning how to power slide on icy lakes, is to get these jackets in tip top condition before they are worn. As well as our local customers, we look after corporate clients. If you’d like to know more about the services we can offer to businesses, call Ian Reid on: 07778777716

Get your florals out!

It’s May, your garden is bloomin’ well blooming – it’s looking beautiful. Wait. What? You’re not wearing your florals yet? Don’t let your garden overshadow your Spring wardrobe.

EASTER OPENING TIMES

We’ll be taking a few days off from beautifying your clothes to eat some chocolate! #chocolatelovers

We’re closed on Good Friday, Saturday 20th, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. Open as usual on Tuesday 23rd April. 

Emperor’s New Clothes?

We clean your designer clothes, always have – always will. But NEVER did we think there was a chance you’d be stepping out in one of our plastic dry cleaning bags…

We’ve all seen items on the catwalk that are completely impractical to wear. One is most likely to assume that these less than wearable garments are all part of the drama of the catwalk and rarely go into production. However, Moschino bucked the trend with their dry-cleaning bag dress, all yours for the tidy sum of £560.

So here’s an idea. To encourage more of you to go plastic free (and save yourself a ‘monkey’), we suggest you jazz up your wardrobe with one of our reusable dry cleaning bags. After all, plastic is so passe.

Clean Revolution


It’s not all about high fashion and fabulous staff, you know. We need to give credit to the machinery that helps us get the fantastic results our customers love. For all dry cleaning, we use the Renzacci Progress Xtreme (we have two of them, and we even named them Thing 1 and Thing 2).

These natty monsters of machinery come with something called i-Brain technology, which means we can monitor, manage and control what’s going on with the cleaning of your clothes from start to finish. They’re also as eco-friendly as dry clean machines can be – with lower energy consumption and ecological filtering systems.

We try and do what we can. Which reminds us, have you got #plasticfree yet? Ask at the counter for more information.


Why use us? We’ve got 5 good reasons!

It’s Wednesday.

Hump day for some, but for us it’s the day we like to impart some dry cleaning wisdom.

Today, we answer the question: why come to Reids of Henley for your specialist clothes cleaning?

Here’s 5 good reasons!
1) Dry cleaning protects the colour and brightness of your clothes – as well as being gentle too.

2) It’s all in the name, but no water is used so dry cleaning won’t run colours and shrink fabric.

3) We’re masters of science and use pretty complex procedures and super special stain removal chemicals.

4) We specialise in odour removal using a magic ozone cupboard.

5) We can ‘deep clean’ really tough stains. We can (to the best of our ability) dissolve the grease and oil your washing machine can’t.

2019 Trends to keep clean

One of the brilliant things about our job is keeping in the ‘fashion-know’ thanks to our trendy customers! #wecleanclothesforatownthatlovetowearthem

Looking to this year’s trends, here are a few of the styles we hope to clean for you in 2019:

OVERSIZED HATS: Jacquemus started the trend for ginormous hats (do an Insta-search) and now other brands want in on the action. We can’t think of anything more perfect for Henley Royal Regatta and Marlow Town Regatta Festival. We can spot clean them post-fun.


TIGHT PLEATS: Tighter than ever before – the micro pleat provides maximum impact as it generates not only more movement but also a more fluctuating silhouette as it expands and contracts. Science-y, eh? Don’t be put off by the extra ironing, we’re experts at pressing pleats. :


SUMMER WATERPROOFS: Last Summer was glorious, but when it rained, boy, did it rain! We offer re-proofing, because you can never be too prepared.


PUFFED SHOULDERS: Often gathered at the shoulder with pleats of elastic, this variation of the shoulder pad requires maximum volume – which we can restore for you, wear-after-wear.


SEQUINS: Have sequins ever *not* been on trend? Save your washing machine and your delicate sequin and beaded garments – bring them to us for an ozone clean instead.

Hippos on Tour with Leander Rowing Club

Hip Hip Hooray! We’re taking part in the Leander Club HIPPOS ON TOUR #hippo200 with Mini Monkie‘s “Hippo Birdie to Leander” to celebrate 200 years of Leander Club.
 
What’s it all about?
Local schools, organisations, artists, athletes and the odd celebrity were asked to take part in the “Hippo Community Project” – for which 200 papier mâché hippos have received all sorts of make-overs. At our Henley shop you can view ‘hippo no.99’ designed by our friend Mini Monkie – Henley’s famous chimp.
 
Follow the hippo trail using this interactive map:
 
And guess what? You can bid for this spectacular hippo at: https://www.leander.co.uk/auctions/?ult_auc_id=5766
The auction ends on 16th September 2018 at 19.00hrs with
monies going to the Kafue River and Rowing Centre, on the Zambezi in Africa. A great cause involving rowing, clean water and African wildlife.

Reids Sponsored Tote Bag is a Success!

What a wonderful evening we had at the MAMA.DO FASHION RE:BOOT event in Henley-on-Thames. Reids of Henley were the proud sponsors of the free tote bag and we’re pleased to say the crowd loved them. Thank you for asking us to be involved MAMA.DO. It was an absolutely brilliant event and we can’t wait for the next one!

We’re looking for more people to #breakupwithplastic

You may have seen the feature in The Henley Standard a few weeks ago, detailing our desire to stop using disposable plastic covers on suits and other clothes, because we’re concerned about the effect plastic waste is having on the planet.

db974c3d-0c31-4c8d-b374-4cdbefcaca7d

We’re pleased to report that a large handful of customers have come forward and are helping us trial the #breakingupwithplastic initiative. However, in order for us to work out the nitty gritty and see if we can put this plan in place we really do need your help.

We would love more people to go plastic free. This means that your clothes will come home in a smart reusable suit bag, your folded shirts will also be placed in a reusable carry bag, and all bedding will now packed away in one of our reusable duvet bags.

Those wanting to join the trial will get all of these ‘reusable’ bags free (at a later date will will need to start charging). So, what are you waiting for. Pop in to either Henley or Marlow and ask our staff about trialling the less plastic initiative. We can only put this in motion if we know what works and what doesn’t.

Thank you in advance,

Ian Reid (Owner of Reids)
