    i just pulled out some spring pants that have been in storage and they all need some cleaning. they are all dry-clean only, but ive had some bad experiences in the past where stains werent removed, etc., and ive been to many different cleaners in my area.

    the one im most concerned about is my white linen pants that have developed some brown-ish stains all over them that are pretty light, but visible when held up to light (Lol! i know).

    other pants have stains from normal wear it seems.

    i just want to know if there's any safe ways that i could clean the pants myself. if i have to go to the cleaners, what do i ask for to make sure that the pants get cleaned but that they are cleaned in a safe manner. it costs me about $4-5/pair which is a lot since im still in school. i dont mind putting in the work if it is significantly cheaper for me to do.

    thanks for your help.

    You're not far from one of the area's best cleaners, Peninou. Try them and you won't have to bother with figuring out how to tell them to clean your pants.

    If I identify a significant stain on my pants or jackets that remains after being dry cleaned, the dry cleaners usually don't charge me.
