Wedding gowns are our specialty! Only at National will you receive the most detailed, expert level cleaning of all of your most precious and valuable garments. We take great pride in our gown cleaning service and would love to talk to you about your gown. All cleaning is done on site by trained and certified specialists.

Every gown is thoroughly inspected at the time of drop-off for stains, rips, discolorations, and any other issues that may have occurred during the ceremony. We then inspect the gown under a UV light to make sure we have accounted for invisible sugar stains as well. The gown is then hand cleaned along the hem, as well as any other problem areas, before being put through a gentle cleaning cycle. Wedding gowns are always cleaned by themselves and great effort is made to protect delicate beads and embroidery.

After cleaning, gowns can be place in our strong, sturdy, and 100% acid free wedding gown preservation chests for storage. These chests keep out light, dust, mold, and mildew, all while allowing air to circulate freely and stabilizing humidity levels. Our boxing materials are all pre-tested and the tissue we use has useful life of 1000 years! The gown can also be viewed in the box through a specially designed window.

All preservations come with a 100% international guarantee against any yellowing of the gown overtime. This guarantee is honored by all members of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists, who will inspect and re-clean your gown at no charge.

If, up to now, you’ve only heard about our exceptional quality, our careful attention to detail and our friendly, efficient service then now is your best chance to actually experience it. Come in and see what makes us different. All consultations are complimentary. We know you’ll be satisfied, in fact... we guarantee it!

Ok brides,
This is a no-brainer when it comes to The Place To Go for dress cleaning care in the Western WA area.

I purchased a gown online that needed a professional cleaning before I could take it to be altered. Mike Erstad seriously is a specialist and he put my fears to rest. He knows his stains, materials, processes and everything else that you could be obsessing over in this field. My dress came back right on time, clean as a whistle, with all koodies of the dress's few years as a sample washed off. Mike is really nice and you'll know that you've found your meistro when you meet him.

Anyhow, I didn't want to take my dress to one of those random shops that tacks on "we do wedding dresses" to their signage; I wanted an expert and THANK GOODNESS that's what I found. They are only only place in town that are officially part of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists.

Enjoy! PS- now I'm having my dress cleaned again post-wedding. We partied hard and I have too much love for that dress and the centerstage memories of my wedding day to not do my best for it! THANKS Mike!!

I received a flyer for National Drycleaners at the Seattle Wedding Show. After my outdoor photo shoot, wedding, and reception the bottom few inches of my wedding dress were absolutely filthy, so I called National Drycleaners. I spoke to Mike Erstad, who was very friendly and knowledgeable. He gave me some basic information over the phone and then set up an appointment for me to come in with my dress so he could give me a quote for cleaning and preservation.

National Drycleaners is conveniently located near my home in Ballard. I went in and met with Mike and felt very confident in his ability to take care of my dress. The total cost ended up being $296.84 which might seem high, but it included for hand cleaning and anti-sugar stain treatment (to detect and remove invisible sugar stains, because some stains, like champagne and cider, are invisible, but can turn yellow over time), and preservation for storage in an acid free preservation box with an oval window made of polypropylene (an inert plastic that will not yellow or damage the gown). My veil was also cleaned and placed in the box for no additional fee.

The entire process took just about two weeks and I was contacted as soon as my dress was done so I could pick it up right away. It was cleaned beautifully and you would never know that it was dragging on the ground all day long.

National Drycleaners was extremely professional and friendly, and their service was exceptional and I feel reasonably priced for what I got.

I bought my dress in Ireland (all European design and Irish lace) and it was a floor model and the tag had been worn off so the materials in the dress were unknown. National Drycleaners were so careful with my dress and so accommodating to the fact that I needed it cleaned over a weekend because I lived in Eastern Washington (no wedding gown specialists there). They cleaned it before the wedding because it was a floor model at the boutique I bought it from and it was quite dirty. When I got it back, it looked like a whole new dress. It was beautiful and in perfect condition. I also took my dress back there after the wedding to have it preserved and they were kind to give me a discount since I had it cleaned there before the wedding. Their staff is patient and has the old fashioned quality customer service that many businesses lack in our generation. I will recommend them to all of my friends getting married in the near future.

One word: FANTASTIC! I brought my dress here a few days before my wedding to have it cleaned and pressed. I picked it up the day before and it looked phenomenal! When I did this I was told I could bring it back for $100 off a preservation, which I did and it looks beautiful in the box as well! Everyone inspected my gown carefully and seemed to really care that I was happy with the results! I would recommend them to anyone and will be returning for regular dry cleaning as well!

Super great service!!! I took my gown to be cleaned so I could sell it to a consignment shop. The consignment shop owner was really impressed with the condition of the gown given the ceremony was outdoors. National Dry Cleaners was extremely professional, cleaned my dress in a timely manner and had super great customer service! They are also a great dry cleaning shop for all of your clothes and I have even brought them some odd shaped items like floor pillows without removable covers and they always do a FANTASTIC job!!! Highly recommended!!!

I take all of my cleaning here. The best quality I have ever seen, they do all of there own work and have been around forever. I like the fact that they use alternative cleaning fluids. The owner at National is a certified Wedding gown specialist and cleans many many gowns. Whether the gown gets cleaned and hung for the wedding day or preserved in a lovely wedding chest National does an excellent job with great service and a 100% guarantee on their preservation work. National is the Best!

My wedding dress was taken in to National Dry cleaners before the wedding and they did an exceptional job cleaning and pressing it. I had gotten some make up on my dress during a fitting. It was taken care of personally and thoroughly. After they pressed and cleaned it, they gave me a $100 credit towards the cleaning and preservation of my gown! The staff was great !

After researching dry cleaners in Seattle, National Drycleaners was the clear choice. They let me do what I want with my dress, they spent several phone conversations answering all of my questions, they were a pleasure work with, and they have competitive prices. I also took some regular cleaning to them, and they got out tough stains. I'd trust National Drycleaners with my most precious clothing!

I had to have my mothers dress brought in to be pressed before alterations could be made. They were able to fit me in without much notice and the dress now perfectly pressed received the alterations and didn't need further pressing. Woo hoo! I will definitely be going back to preserve the now that our wedding is over.

Very attentive and made me feel safe leaving my gown in their care. I had an outdoor wedding so my gown got pretty muddy and dirty, but they returned it to it's original beauty. Now I have my gown at home in one of their preservation boxes with a lifetime guarantee against any yellowing. The service was excellent and I would recommend National to everyone for their wedding gown care.
