I dont dry clean so i dont know and no one has answered those questions. This thread coulda died with 3 replies, not 3 pages of nonsense
reason why i hate dry cleaning because clothes you send to one come back in an altered state, usually a negative one.
when i used dry cleaning service, wool sweaters and pants came back stiffer and 'crispy'. they used to be soft and natural feeling.
especially jeans, raw indigo jeans, these are natural fiber and dye products that i am sure would come back from the cleaners in a bland altered state.
you take the time to fade and crease the jeans to your liking, they will come back from the cleaners (used with chemicals) to perhaps an all around general lightened indigo state. will probably take away all the contrast. will probably even take away all the stiffness in the cotton for you.
i dont know, just my experiences with dry cleaners with simple pants and wool sweaters.
i would just do a machine wash to jeans.
another thing... i just saw this thread.
