My mother has a fabulous gazelle trenchcoat from 1972 that I love to wear, but I want to get it cleaned. I don't really trust my drycleaner to do it. How can I go about getting the coat cleaned without ruining it?
Fur coats should be cleaned and stored at a reputable furrier, preferably in your local area. Ask for referrals from your neighbors and friends.
